I am looking to get a thin rain coat. I have a good one for the depths of winter (it needs water proofing again), but it is way too hot to wear it any other time. (I am a portable radiator.) My hope is that it would be thin, so not too hot, and that it will pack down into a small size so I can store it in my bag whilst riding. (I like to do long rides so may not want it all day.)
I do 70/30 offroad to on road riding, as much off road as I can get but I don't have the best selection of hills at my door step.
I am happy to build up my layers so that the coat is only there to stop the rain. Main points I guess are:
- stops the rain
- will not get me too hot
- packs away small for transport when not needed.
I swear I saw a good review of half a dozen or so such jackets a while ago, but for the life of me I can not find them anymore. Does anyone know of a good jacket, or even better, links to good reviews to be able to look at the best options?
