"Paper" RAGBRAI Jackets – anyone have one or remember them?

In the mid to late 90’s RAGBBRAI sold jackets that were supposedly made of paper. I have no idea when I parted with mine, but was curious if anyone remembers them. They were so light weight, could be crammed into a bag and take up little space, and were great on chilly mornings.

I had one of those jackets, they were like Tyvek house wrap. Can’t remember where it went but I had it a long time.

Yes. They were great. I think I’ve seen similar jackets at a marathon (running) event. Would buy another if it was out.

I have one.  It doesn’t fit me any more, so it’s stored away in a box somewhere.

If the color of the jacket was yellow with a blue RAGBRAI insignia, I still have mine. I still have the same colored bag to store the jacket made of the same yellow material. I tried it on and it still fits but I must say it feels much tighter than I remember. I’m sure the jacket shrunk being stored for so long.
