      I need some recommendations from the contributors. I am looking the most preferred upper body rain wear when riding in 40 to 60 degree temperatures. It needs to be lightweight, somewhat breathable and obviously water repellent.


      Thanks in advance!

      Check out the Showers Pass rainwear. You won’t be disappointed.

      Not sure if you saw this recent roundup:

      13 Packable Mountain Bike Jackets, Tested

      There are a lot of choices on there, but I can say of the two I’ve personally tested, the Pearl Izumi jacket is a good choice. It’s not waterproof, but it packs down small and light and isn’t super expensive. The Leatt seems like a good choice too, though I haven’t spent much time in that one. It’s more of a rain jacket and therefore heavier and less packable, but still affordable.

        Jeff that’s a pretty good list of nice jackets.
