Okay I'm sending an SOS to all you guys out there for some suggestions for a breathable material packable short hooded rain jacket. It does not have to be Gore-Tex but it needs to keep me dry in a hard T-storm for at least twenty minutes.

It need not even have any pockets. My biggest issues are it has to be packable into the back pocket of my Simms shorty vest. I'm thinking when it's folded it is about 1.5" thick x 5" wide x 8" long. I want it to have either elasticized, or Velcro closure, cuffs. I have a summer weight breathable jacket now but it does not pack well and when I stuff it into my vest I look more like the Hunchback of Norte Dam than a well dressed fly angler. I'd like it to cost no more than $150 but might be willing to spend up to $200. Thanks!
