Windproof or Waterproof?
A wind jacket is much lighter and you won’t sweat that much in it compared to a waterproof rain jacket. My own preference goes towards carrying a wind jacket AND a rain jacket with me and wear them according to the current weather situation. If it’s raining, I am obviously going to wear a waterproof jacket but if it’s dry but only a cold wind is blowing then I quickly pull on my wind jacket over my fleece to stay warm.
