Looking for a rain jacket that can be converted into a vest (zip off sleeves). I have an old FJ Dry Joys jacket that allows me to do both. I like the jacket/ vest, but its SOOO heavy. Have you guys run across anything like this? Any recommendations?

    No one has come across something like this. I have looked at FJ, Adidas, Sun Mountain and the best they have is a jacket that zips into a short sleeve. While that might not be bad, I am a short fat fellow and my arms arent the longest so the zip off often puts the sleeve right at my elbow. Wasnt sure if there were other brands out there that would have what I am looking for.

    Thanks but i was looking for some that unzipped at the shoulder. I know it kinda defeats the purpose of a "rain jacket/shirt" but i just find with those 1/2 sleeves it hits in the wrong spot.

    I know DSG/GG used to carry a Walter Hagen convertible jacket that detached at elbow & shoulder (so basically it was a jacket, ran shirt & rain vest in 1). It fit horribly on me and I don't know if they still sell it.

    Edit: they do still carry this... no clue how good it actually performs though since it's only wind/water resistant. https://www.dickssportinggoods.com/p/walter-hagen-mens-3-in-1-golf-jacket-fa13whradiumjackt/fa13whradiumjackt?camp=CSE:DSG_92700040958842642_pla_pla-504972540866&gclid=Cj0KCQjwn8_mBRCLARIsAKxi0GKNFX8V_XN-uNRZ45Q36XsvH9kxNIMWPp1XjTA9YKqcMkOAlAEQ_FkaAssTEALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds
