The perfect riding jacket is tiny enough to tuck into a jersey pocket, but it's also able to stave off a chill on ripping descents or when clouds unexpectedly obscure the sun.

Louis Garneau's Super Lite Jacket is not only packable but light as air and paper-thin without feeling gauzy, plasticy or like it might rip in the harsh winds you're used to riding in. Not only does it keep the wind out, but it's water repellent. Trim cut for running and cycling, the Super Lite has a chin guard; stretchy collar, wrists and hem; and reflective hits to keep you visible in traffic. Available now, $80,
