I was issued a fire-resistant soft shell for my last deployment, which CIF promptly took back as soon as we got home. It's the perfect jacket for when it's not wet enough for the goretex top.
The note about the non-FR being lighter and softer than the FR version is exactly right. It is noticeably lighter, which means it crunches up smaller but probably isn't as warm.
