I've got one from Trek that is ideal. Folds up into almost nothing, and has a large covered vent in the back. Pit zips would have been welcome. Wash separately by hand. The color ran like crazy. I got one size larger than needed to allow for a sweater or light jacket underneath.

Pearl had something very similar on the shelf at about the same price of $50.00. I forget why I went with Trek.
Some people are like a Slinky ... not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you shove them down the stairs.

Look up Montane featherlite. They make one for jogging that i use called marathon, and one for cycling with a slightly longer back but i couldnt find that one to buy. It packs up as small as an orange, weighs 4 oz's, has vents on the pits and sides, and is the best lightweight jacket i've found. Windproof and waterresistant and highly breathable. Another option is a cycling vest combined with some arm warmers for the best in not sweating while stopping wind but doesnt pack up anywhere near as small.
