Any recommendations for a lightweight rain jacket for winter/summer use that will fit in a jersey pocket. Preferably clear but definitely not black.
I have a gore bike wear one but it wont fit in my pockets.
EDIT: Sorry wrong sub-forum please move to road, Thanks
Looks like it's being discontinued and I couldn't find the replacement on the Garneau site

I changed to Showers Pass ProTech which has performed much better. It breathes better and keeps a lot of the water out.
Packs up small enough to get into a rear pocket, clear enough for the race number pinned to your jersey to be seen and is about $100.
My LBS had a Mavic Helium Jacket, so I bought it.
Very light at 76 Grams couldn’t be much heavier than thebugmans bin bag suggestion.
It’s also very thin and the zip doesn’t seem to strong (but time will tell).
It rolls up to about the size of 2 Mars Bars.
Ill keep you all posted on how it performs in the rain.
Thanks to all your suggestions.

if it only costs $20 then you don't need to get too precious about getting it dirty or dropping it...!
