 Post subject: Can anyone recommend a decent shell jacket?

Evening all,

I am looking for a decent jacket that's mainly waterproof, wind prove ish and more importantly breathable. I've been wearing my winter jacket recently and it's just too warm!

I don't particularly wanna break the bank and its got to be easy to stow away until needed.

All suggestions greatly received

Cheers

Jamie

I got a Karrimor one from Sports Direct (don't laugh now). Lightweight, pretty breathable, scrunches into a tiny ball and good in the wind. I use it for road riding as it's not quite warm enough yet for just a top, and I stayed comfortable - didn't sweat that much at all in it. Best of all it only cost £12 :)
