I need a new rain jacket, and by rain jacket I mean one that actually keeps all or most of the rain out. Not a ´wind´ jacket. I don´t need a jacket when it´s windy.

I would also like it to be very lightweight and pack very small.

I would also like a snug race like fit.

I would also like it not to be ridiculously expensive, so don´t bother posting any assos or similar crap.

I saw some guy who had a showers pass brand that looked pretty promising, I´m not sure which one it was, but I´m going to look into it.

Please post if you have a suggestion that generally fits my needs.

I recently got an Endura xtract. I got it for less than $50.

I too had no interest in dumping $200+ on a cycling rain jacket. I do like the showers pass stuff, but it is more $ and you are committed to wearing it (won't crunch into jersey pocket).

The xtract is not baggy, but it is not a a snug race fit either.

It is seam taped on the inside. The zipper is not a waterproof zipper. However, there is a flap of fabric behind the zipper.

It is breathable fabric - not as breathable as my RAB 2.5 layer $200 rain jacket. But, it was $50ish and I am very happy with it.

It comes with a little stuff sack thing, which I don't use. The jacket easily crunches up to fit into a jersey pocket.
