Ladies / Gents,
I am a newbie and hope I am not wasting peoples time.
I am after the lightest, waterproof most breathable jacket avaliable - money not an issue.
I run HOTTER THAN THE SUN all the time so don't need a fully waterproof hardcore jacket (I have an eVent North Face for that anyway which I hardly wear due to overheating). I am not a hill climber / walker / fell runner, just someone after a robust waterproof I can carry in my pocket/rucksack for the UK weather.
I have just bought a Arcteryx Gamma LT Softshell and this is 'perfect' in respect to weight and breathability - but is only showerproof (not tested yet!)...so I want a jacket to carry in the pocket and use if it really downpours.
Research has got me down to 2 possibles: Marmot Super Mica or Montane Minimus???
Any advice on these or ANY OTHER jackets would be appreciated.
I am after : (in order of importance to me)[*]Waterproof[*]Breatheable[*]Lightweight[*]Packable into a pocket/rucksack[*]NOT The North Face or Berghaus brands please[/list]
Thank You, 1baloo.
