When the weather looks dodgy, it’s useful to have a packable jacket with you just in case. The Morvelo Plan B jacket fits the bill well: it’s very light at 78 grams and folds into its own zipped rear pocket when you don’t need it. The folded jacket is compact and being sausage-shaped id easy to carry: at around 15cm long by 8cm across, it will fit into a jersey pocket with room to spare.
