With thin rain jackets, we suggest considering a little larger size because usually, you need some warmer layers underneath. Of course, some rainwear is deliberately made a bit bigger already.

Some of the military surplus raincoats are warmer camo jackets that have a waterproof Gore-Tex or Sympatex membrane. Then there are thin army rain jackets that are very packable. Raincoats are considered a regular piece anyone should own, but quite often a waxed poly-cotton jacket or water-resistant softshell jacket would do just fine against random showers.

Vinyl jacket or waterproof shell jacket?

Waterproof shell jackets breathe better than rubber or vinyl, but you'll sweat in them anyways. Zippers in the armpits do wonders, and other common vent spots are the upper back and front area. Non-breathable materials have superior waterproofing even under pressure (from shoulder straps), and they are more resilient to wear without requiring maintenance.
