I swear by my Houdini jacket. It's so lightweight, so packable. I was fishing the Delaware River a couple of years ago and a thunderstorm came up out of nowhere and a downpour ensured. My Houdini was in its stuffsack pack-pocket in my sling and I quickly put it on. Its water repellency was so good, I just sat on the bank and watched the droplets form on the fabric on my arm until the rain stopped. I took a picture of this, but of course that got wiped away when someone spilled beer on my phone. Anyway, here are the features as bullet points:
Featherweight 100% nylon ripstop with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish
Zippered chest pocket converts to stuffsack with a reinforced carabiner clip-in loop
Hood adjusts in one pull, won’t block peripheral vision
Durable half-elastic cuffs; drawcord hem
Reflective logo on left chest and center-back neck
Can be worn over baselayers and light midlayers
