Dude, I live in Berkeley too! This jacket is awesome and lightweight, but it doesn't do much in the way of insulating. It's strictly a shell, great for biking/walking in the rain/wind. If you're looking for a goretex layer, this is the best one you can get for this price.

If you want something cheaper, the Marmot Precip is an awesome shell; smaller, lighter, more compressible, but less bomb proof.
