I look for lightweight rain jacket. No pockets needed, i don't need it as windbreaker- just good jacket to have in my back pocket that I can use for rainy days. Most of the jacket I saw was too heavy or too expensive for simple rain protection.
What can you recomend me?
Reviews suggestds it was very hot though!

Don't get the Gabba when you're looking for an all-out rain jacket. As I've said multiple times around here, it's great for racing or hard workouts in the rain. For hours on end in the downpour it's not the best choice, you will get soaked and cold.
Personally I'm after a Castelli Confronto jacket for the coming season (not tried yet though). Waterproof shell plus zip vents beats the most fancy fabrics, in my book.
I have an Assos race cape (it has some stupid assos name which is the usual meaningless mix of random letters, numbers and capitalisation that looks someone typed their password into the "model" field by mistake). They make great claims of its breathability, but I dont find it any better or worse than the cheap montane plastic-bag-as-a-jacket that it replaced. The only real benefit is that the assos has vents in the armpits and down the sides, it fits better and its lasted so far for 5 years or so.
I also have a Pearl Izumi Pro Barrier which I was given. Similar deal to the Assos but at a quarter of the price. If I was buying again this is what I'd get as its cheap when compared to the crazy prices of the Assos, Rapha type stuff, but of decent enough quality.
It looks like Pearl Izumi makes something similar now for $50 less, so I'd check that out first.
