      Consider an umbrella.  Golite makes one specifically for backpacking (lightweight -- around 11 ounces).  Some folks (most notably Ray Jardine) advocate umbrellas as their main source of rain protection while hiking, only shifting to other alternatives when it's too windy to wield the 'brella.  An umbrella and poncho might be a good all-round combination.
