Rain Jacket

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Couple good ones here, right price too. I've purchased from them before and their products are high quality stuff IMHO.

If packing small is what you want, the Sportful Hot Pack jackets fold down really, really small (to about the size of an small apple squashed flat). Not all that cheap though:

I like my flash gordon. Its a vest that you zip the sleeves onto, so adds some versatility.

Make sure to use a long sleeve jersey when you know you might use the jacket. It feels really nasty to have the jacket material in contact with sweaty arms.
