    Compact wet-weather gear?

    Anyone have some ideas about light wet weather gear? I've used el cheapo pocket-stash nylon jackets and pants and want something similar but better:

    For hunting and hiking it should be:
    -Light
    -Compact
    -Good rain protection
    -Durable
    -Quiet, possible?

    For cycling:
    -Good rain and wind protection

    I don't mind spending some coin because I'm sick of the cheap stuff letting me down!

    Cheers
    Thanks to the Playstation we have the outdoors to ourselves!

    Ive got a Stoney Creek Huntlite jacket that rolls up into its own hood and I'd rate it- think it cost about 270?

    I can't remember the brand but its a dark blue jacket and leggings sold at farm lands. Water proof wind proof light its good stuff. Quite a soft feeling material too doesnt feel like cheap plastic coats. Hopefully a farmer here will know what I'm talkin about

    Is it the kaiweka stuff? I use it. Its definitely waterproof, but its like being wrapped in glad warp-it doesn't breathe at all.

    You might be better off with something like a gore-tex jacket from an outdoor brand, they crush up to bugger all.
