I have a thicker grey one w/ a zipper, that I sometimes use as well, but that hood is too thick to fit under my helmets

also have an inexpensive, thin rain jacket (not cycling specific) that falls into this category. but it doesn't vent well so I have to layer carefully

sometimes a vest is all you need. how about something with zip off arms, so you can regulate / vent more easily?
That's what I ended up getting; Columbia's having a winter sale so picked up a pretty beefy sweatshirt and a lined rain/wind jacket
