As part of my hunting/surviving/outdoor attire, I acquired an oilskin duster. Sorta like this. To keep the rain off.
I got a great chance to use it during the windy rain we had this week, since I was going to work. I figured worst case scenario and I'd have to get out of my car and hoof it somewhere. And no umbrella was going to help. An oilskin cowboy hat with a chin strap completed the ensemble. I had boots in the car if I had to get out of my workshoes. I probably shoulda placed wools socks in there, too.
Me likey. Even oversize, any bulkier a coat underneath and it would be a bit too snug. I best empty those pockets of extra gear. That was the only thing against it.
A heavy pack over top of it might have been too much, though, pulling at the snaps.
