Having been caught out by the weather today, it's high time I invested in a rain jacket but I have no idea what to choose. therre don't seem many reviews out there to help with my decision. From what's available online, I like the look of the Endura Pakajak http://www.leisurelakesbikes.com/product.aspx?n=endurapakajakjacket&id=1..., the Shutt race cape http://www.shuttvr.com/shop/productdetail/Shutt-Race-Cape/ or the Pearl Izumi PRO http://www.westbrookcycles.co.uk/clothing-c7/jackets-c48/pearl-izumi-pro...

Any advice?

I have a Dare2B lightweight foldable jacket and the Endura Lumilite for heavier duty weather.

You could try one or other of those?

With it coming into summer, i would suggest a mac in a sack, very lightweight and its great if your caught in a shower, plus they are cheap

Thats all i have, i will be looking at something more substantial when the summer is over and the weather gets worse

I've got a dhb Droxford, which you can currently have half price if you're large or above, and like black.

I can heartily recommend it. it *just* fits in a jersey pocket and it's a proper 2.5 layer waterproof for £45.

a bit pricey but the best all round properly waterproof jacket I've used. it rolls up so small I just leave in the side pocket of my rucksack for my commute. Comes in red as well if you don't fancy the hi viz look
