Wondering the same as well... did a search but everything is always based on waterproof and not warmth.  I dont want to buy something that is lightweight when I need the warmth.

Galvin Green from Sweden offers Gore Tex shells in a regular weight and their PAC-lite series which weighs next to nothing.
The trick is to layer it with a mid layer like their Insula thermals. Super breathable.
Check out their stuff, just google Galvin Green. They explain it all on their site.
I own some of their shirts, thermals and waterproofs, absolutely amazing stuff.
Lifetime warranty on the waterproofs.

Nike Storm-Fit rain jacket is fairly warm.  It's thick and traps heat. (It's too warm for summer rain so had to get a half sleeve ZR rain shirt.)  

I agree you don't want it to be too warm, better to layer.  If it stops raining and you remove the rainwear you still want to be warm.

Dress in layers for the best comfort and versatility.

I don't have one, have been considering it.

Layers are best, try to keep from sweating, as goretex can't get rid of it all.  I use a footjoy top and long sleeved poly pro shirt.

I love my Zero Restriction coat. It's 100% waterproof gortex and something like 600 thinsulate. It has convertible sleeves- full, partial, and off (vest style).

They're pricey, but in my opinion they're well worth it.

Yes am feeling the multi layer concept. The shells are pretty expensive though. Rest is ok I guess.

Isnt there a test they do for waterproofness?

And the Galvins are like 50,000

Under Armour next best at 20,000

And the rest 15,000

Thinking its about time to invest in one,

English Winter and all that Jazz
