About Cycling Windproof Jackets
Windproof jackets can improve your comfort levels on the bike considerably when the weather turns nasty, factors such as wind resistance and high breathability are important if you will be riding at a high pace over a fair distance, along with wearing a good quality base or mid layer to help with wicking moisture away from your skin. A windproof cycle jacket will help keep the cold air from reaching your chest, this means your body stays warm and comfortable on those cold days.

Magazine reviews for Gore Bike Wear Phantom II WINDSTOPPER SO Convertible Jacket SS11
Review from Bikeradar
If you've never had a Gore Bike Wear softshell jacket, live on beans and toast for a few weeks and then treat yourself to a Phantom. This is a must-have jacket if you love to ride no matter what the weather.
The Phantom jacket takes the impeccable Gore pedigree and adds a great twist - zip off arms. The sleeves unzip to reveal short (non-windproof) sleeves underneath, creating a great milder weather or harder riding top. Partially unzipping them works as effective venting too, giving this jacket an amazingly wide operating range.
There's plenty to love about Gore Bike Wear's Soft Shell N2S Windstopper fabric. It's light, quiet to wear and warm when it has to be. It boasts low sweat levels and it's quick drying. The Phantom nurtures this love with its zip-off arms, which reveal two lightweight, black quarter sleeves.
The full-length front zip has a baffle underneath, the collar stands up to keep a seal around the neck, and there are triple rear pockets to satisfy the cycling jersey requirements.
The multi-panel cut with stretchy back panels means a snug fit for efficient wicking on the back, too. Add some reï¬‚ective detailing on the arms and you have a jacket-cum-jersey that'll see you through at least three seasons of the year.
Occasionally we found ourselves zipping an arm to the wrong side. Maybe Gore should add an 'L' and 'R' on the inside of the sleeve tops.
Superb quality and performance help to justify the price

97cm chest (38")
That said, an ultra-lite base layer would probably improve the sweat management of your clothing system.
It is like a thicker than normal cycling jersey that can be worn on its own or as a jacket. I find it really versatile especially with dubious English weather.
If you want something that will pack down that small then buy a small cag in a bag, or an emergency poncho.
The jacket does have zip off arms, so what you could do on a warmer day is wear the jacket and zip them off. You probably wouldn't need more than a t-shirt underneath because it offers warmth through the windproofing. You could then put the sleeves in the pockets on the back of the jacket if you needed them in the event of rain. Or just get wet arms?
It depends what sort of running though?
If you're just a casual runner i.e. not racing, and doing it for a bit of fitness in addition to cycling then yeah no problem.
If you're looking at marathon distances you might want to consider a lighter jacket.
I live with two marathon runners and they use waterproof shells which are much lighter. As this is a softshell windproof jacket this means it's heavier and would start to weigh you down.
