Any suggestions for a foldable rain jacket/cape?

Ideally one that can be easily folded up up put in a jersey back pocket.

    not properly breathable of course but packs down to the size of an apple!

    I have one of these. It packs down very small and is breathable too:

    Montane Velo jacket. Every time!

    Packs down to an apple size with no folding or messing, and can be stuffed in a pocket or hung behind the saddle.

    It is the jacket I take everywhere in spring / summer as you never know. The yellow one is fab for visibilty.

    Yes... its only pertex and will not survive a downpour of epic proportions, BUT nothing bar a real rain jacket will, and they are not portable! The thing breathes, and is great for a windblock. Its well fitted, so doesnt flap too much. And LIGHT.

    With the Velo and my Gore Phantom I have all I need.
