Cotswold Outdoor are selling Paclite at 99,  normally 150. I have  had one for years and would recommend it for a lightweight,packable jacket. But it won't  cover your bump.

GWM the one I fancy next is an Altus (see Amazon) it is more like a long raincoat but with extra pouch at the back to cover rucksack.
Too little, too late, too bad......

I've got a Berghaus paclite I rate it highly


The Paclite trousers are excellent too.

I agree, they are also a nice fit, not as baggy as most. O0

Some people on the Camino swear by the Altus poncho, I use Zpacks 3:1 Poncho.

HI Doddy.  yep the Altus was very popular . Some were very long and only needed high gaiters to keep lower legs dry. Because of  the way they fasten you don't struggle to get them over your backpack and they don't offer much chance of accidental paragliding. Not too expensive either. Not sure they are capable of the same level of ventilation as a more normal  poncho.
