Default Snowboard / rain jacket

I'm looking for a snowboard jacket that will also work as a rain jacket (autumn till spring), which means no (or almost no) insulation.

Most of the jackets I find online have some kind of insulation (btw, how warm is 40g / 60g / 80g?)...

What would be also nice if the jacket had a hood which stays in place properly, ie. is not blown away by the wind, and does not interfere with vision when I turn my head (my current rain jacket for example has an elastic band in the hood which keeps the hood in place)

Thanks a lot for any suggestions...

got a budget?

the answer to this question involves GoreTex or some type of equivalent vapor membrane and things [can] get expensive... of course there is always something on sale somewhere...

I think the Bonfire Mt Hood and Volcom Atlantic Storm would both fit what you're looking for.

Thanks for the suggestions.
It's too bad none of the US online shops I found ship these jackets to Europe, and the EU shops are twice as expensive for some reason...

I think I'll settle for something like the Volcom Mirror jacket - 15k waterproof and 10k breathability should be enough...
