If I have to wear a rain jacket, I am going to get wet---either from the rain or the condensation inside the jacket. Either way, I am soaked.

A windbreaker would allow me to hike without that condensation. Wouldn't protect me from rain, but would be another layer without adding that waterproof condensation.

But when I am hiking, I generate heat. I don't take a wind breaker because I never need warmth when hiking---only when I stop. And by then, if it's cool out, I go straight for the puffy.
