Come on, define it yourself. I was just trying to help someone who obviously is very green.

People bring stupid junk that they never use.

I took a nasty fall recently backpacking in 38F with heavy rain and 30-40 mph wind. I am sitting here with my ankle in a brace for the past three weeks. When I fell, my first and immediate concern was whether my raingear was ripped. So, there is your answer. I always have a rain jacket with me on my bike, I don't care if the ride is 10 miles. If someone lives in the desert SW, they would be nuts to "always" have a rain jacket. Each person has to make a decision based on their particular needs.
