Please recommend a stowaway jacket...

As the title suggests I need a new lightweight jacket that can be stored in jersey pocket, or on the bike. Mainly for use in the spring/summer for when I get caught in a rain shower. Doesn't have to be perfectly waterproof but has to roll up very small.

I've been reading about the Montane Featherlite, but are there any similar alternatives?
Specialized Venge S Works
Cannondale Synapse
Enigma Etape
Genesis Flyer Single Speed

Turn the corner, rub my eyes and hope the world will last...
