I was looking for a decent Gore-tex jacket that wouldn't break the bank too much. I stumbled across mine at US Outdoor Store.

Breathes/vents well, fits me good, I'm 5'8"-9". I use mine mostly for biking to work in Portland, OR. I kind of get soggy sometimes, even with all the vents open. That's when I'm commuting with my bike and messenger bag snugged tight. When I'm in the woods, on the other hand, it works like a dream, including when worn under my backpack.

The Swift Jacket is relative light in its class. The fit is typical MH. Sleeves are long enough for climbing. For really nasty weather I don’t think the hood is great. The hood can just handle a helmet, Ecrin is more difficult then Meteor. Venting possibilities are good.

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

If you've ever left a rain jacket behind to save on weight, you'll dig the Mountain Hardwear Swift Jacket. Made from Gore-Tex PacLite, the Swift weighs in at under a pound and packs down small. Don't think it's all about weight though. Paclite is also some of the most breathable waterproof laminate around, so even though it's raining cats, dogs, and occasionally moose outside, you won't drown in sweat or water during a hard climb. Micro Tape construction cuts out weight and bulk, and laminated details remove stitching for a similar effect. Don't settle for an uncomfortable rainshell to save weight, or leave yourself without protection, get a Swift, and be quick about it.
