    Best Rain Jacket

    I'm going to be in the Pyrenees next week... and the long range forecast is for rain. I'm presuming this is gonna be proper rain, and not the drizzle we've occasionally had in the last couple of years here in Norcal. What do the forummers on here from rainier states than mine recommend for a jacket in such conditions? I'm looking for something a bit lighter than the plastic macs I grew up riding with back in Ireland, though.

    Amazon.com : Cannondale Men's Morphis Jacket : Cycling Jackets : Sports & Outdoors
    This came up on Amazon. Anyone tried it? Reviews are good and the price is right.

    Have you thought about trying a Castelli's Gabba rain jersey? It is made of wind stopper material and works very well at keeping you comfortable.

    Shower Pass Jacket - there are several to choose from on their site.

    This^^^ Their fabric is pretty near perfect in letting moisture through from inside but keeping rain out. I have the Elite and love it.

    That looks like a great option. Do you have one yourself? Do you ride with it stand-alone, or with a baselayer of some sort?

    I have one and it's great. Also, tons of pro teams not sponsored by Castelli wear unbranded ones because they are so good.

    How hard are you going to be riding? What are the temperatures predicted to be?

    If it's warm enough, a rain jacket is a waste of time.

    Temps are supposed to peak in the mid-70s in the valley and at Hautacam, but I can't find a forecast for the summit of the Tourmalet, and I'm told the windchill there is something to be wary of.
