I have never spent much time down San Diego way, so I am not sure if the weather is appreciably different from Long Beach. I quite frequently will wear 360g or 400g jackets in the cooler months of the year---November to April or even June. I even have a 560g jacket for our coolest days. Obviously a 400g suiting is not going to be suitable for "year round" wear, but I have other dressy garments, suits and jackets for warmer weather. I just did not have a "cool weather" suit, and thought I'd fill that gap in my wardrobe.
P.S. Just checked with my wife, who is a San Diego State alumna. She says the weather in SD is "milder," so I don't know if this would have any bearing on your decision.
