    barbour linhope range is very light, and there is another one lighter (but a bit rustly).
    I have a linhope and it is much lighter than all the musto etc equivalent.

    After many years of wearing Barbour and Musto, mostly, I'm starting to go down the mil surplus route. The German Gore-Tex flecktarn jacket is very lightweight indeed and not what you would expect from a military jacket. It packs down to nothing, is waterproof, you don't worry about damage and it cost me 13 delivered.

    It doesn't have many pockets but you can wear something like the British windproof smock over the top of it if necessary. Also, with wash in waterproofing the windproof smock is pretty waterproof and will last at least an hour in heavy rain so it alone might be up to your job on most nights. I was also amazed to lie in a puddle in mine for 15 minutes the other night and find that no water came through. I've bought clothing claiming to be waterproof that didn't perform as well.

    Well worth a look, try ebay for a start, and cheap enough as to be nearly disposable if you find a barbed wire fence or similar.
