I've got an earlier version of this. As you say, it is very boil in the bag, so even the easiest of efforts gets a sweat on. I rode 3 miles from the station to the office yesterday and it kept me nice and dry but I was fairly sweaty when I got to the office and I just pootled along.
After the last couple of weeks I'm now sold on capes/ponchos for serious wet commuting.
I've been using this decathlon one
which is really for camping trips but it's done the job.
Doesn't have a way to clip onto the handlebars though so my knees get wet. What do people use, pegs?
That's got sleeves, not really a poncho / rain cape IMO. Buy a proper one.
If you are on a budget the Vaude Valdipino is decent and has loops.
Thanks will have a look
My brooks one has little tags with magnets on then. Worked pretty well. It also has sleeves!
