The Arcteryx Men's Beta LT Hybrid Jacket is a lightweight rain jacket for all-around activities, such as hiking and climbing. The Beta LT Hybrid combines Gore-Tex PacLite (mainbody) and Gore-Tex 3L (high-wear areas) for a super packable, lightweight package. The high-wear areas are the shoulders and underarms, where backpack straps lay. The Gore-Tex fabrics are waterproof and breathable to keep you comfortable all day long in rain, sleet, or snow. A durable water repellent and taped seams increase waterproofness throughout the jacket. The drop-hood stays out of the way when not in use and is also helmet compatible with adjustments to pull it close. Open up the pit zips to release excess heat while the Beta LT Hybrid takes care of the weather and you take on the trail.

This jacket is exactly what you need if you require a water/wind proof shell to protect you from the elements. It'll fit over whatever you have on (given you aren't wearing a puffy down jacket) but don't expect it to keep you warm by itself (unless a breeze comes in early May). That being said, its extremely thin (like bed sheet thin) so packing it won't be a problem and I don't see any issues wearing it in warm weather while its raining. I'd rather be a tad warm than soaked. Everything cinches down to keep wind/water out and it fits perfect - I'm 6'00 160lbs and I wear a medium. I think this specific model is discontinued because its not on the Arc'teryx website and I couldn't find much on it via the internet. I did however see that it was very well received at last years outdoor retailer show by one of their experts. Overall, its highly recommended.
