Default Wading Jacket-SIMMS,PATAGONIA or LL Bean?

Hi
I looking new wading jacket waterproof,breathable and lite
that can be put in my pocket vest. I need something to keep me dry and waterproof but I,m not fishing in extreme weather(low temperature,snow,extreme cold or storm). I intend to use that jacket only in the late spring, summer and early autumn.I found this product- Men's PacLite Stowaway Wading Jacket with Gore-Tex® from Men's PacLite Stowaway Wading Jacket with Gore-Tex: Fishing Jackets at L.L.Bean made by LL Bean .I need yours advice if this LL Bean jacket have good quality and performance.
Do you think would be better to buy a jacket from Simms or Patagonia?
Thanks.

Ovidiu

This is one that I would consider- Simms In-Vest Rain Jacket, Men's Rainwear Jackets & Parkas, Men's Rainwear, Men's Casual Clothing, Clothing : Cabelas.com

But, it doesn't claim to be breathable, so it might not be best for extended wear.

In a different direction, this is a great piece- Sierra Designs Campfire Hoody (Men's)

I got my wife one, and I would order myself one if I didn't already have a very similar jacket. Its super light, totally windproof, and water repellent. (found hers on www.steepandcheap.com for $37)

if you are looking for a breathable product, skip the "PACLITE" material.
It does NOT!!! breath well enough..

i have the Smms in vest jacket and thats execatly where i keep it, in my vest. it does not breath at all but it does what it is intended to do, keep you dry while its raining/snowing. when im out on the stream and need to wear a jacket i wear a G3, love the thing, built like a brick poo house and comfy to wear

I have the LL Bean paclite and like it for its intended purpose. It is small enough to carry so you actually have it with you when unexpected rain shows up. It is the lightest, most packable one I could find. You would need to layer under it for any season but summer.
