Rear derallier mech

Can any on assist please
I have been trying to set my nine speed rear mech.
How ever well I try to set my cassette up to change sprocket the chain does not change cleanly.
My mech is a Shimamo
RD 770 and has some little sideways wear, if it is time to replace it what is the modern equivalent.

Good evening folks,

Can somebody assist my search for riding tops, just good enough to take the wind chill away, but light enough to tuck away in a saddle bag.
It needs to used when autumn chills arrive.(Not riding a road bike but a touring bike (retired)
