It really depends on your definition of 'lightweight'... it's not as light as a goretex active shell or a similar high-priced jacket, but it's also a fraction of the price. Breathability is also not as high as the more expensive jackets either. Packability of the jacket isnt fantastic - I have an XL and it would be too bulky to store in a jersey pocket while riding. All things said though, the fabric is quite soft for a jacket in this pricerange (I expected it to be far heavier) and I find it comfortable to wear while commuting. If you're looking for lightweight - look for the goretex (or equivalent), but be prepared to be spending (a lot) more $$.
