I have used this antenna made by Nelson Antennas (on eBay) on many occasions over the past 2 years. When it comes to convenience, weight, cost & flexibility, it is hard to beat this antenna. It is a roll up, J-Pole/Slim Jim antenna. It is tuned for both 2m and 70cm. That means that you can get reception both on UHF & VHF frequencies.

I have kept this antenna in the frigid cold for all of last winter. All the snow, ice storms, rain and other weather elements had zero effect on this antenna.
