...I think a jacket and a fabric tarp would cover most situations.

One of the new, lightweight tars might fit the bill

for 20 years i've carried a Land-Shark as my emergency bivi bag

https://www.land-shark.com/how-it-works#features

their description:

"The Land Shark is constructed of a micro-thin layer of aluminized film laminated to a resilient, composite reinforced, ripstop material. The aluminized coating reflects up to 80% of radiated body heat. The tightly-woven ripstop reinforcing seam construction resists tears and punctures, even from boots and sticks. The Land Shark is completely windproof, waterproof and acts as a vapor barrier. The Land Shark Instant Survival Shelter measures only 6 x 8 x 1 and weighs a mere 22 oz. (0.623 kg.). When needed, it opens to a windproof, waterproof, heat-retaining and roomy 38 x 80 (96.52 cm x 203.2 cm)."
