I see lots of kudos above for Frog Toggs, but let me add my experience. We started to see rain coming and stopped at a Gander Mountain store so my buddy's wife could get some rain gear. She bought a Frog Toggs suit and off we went. It poured rain for hours. Not only did she get wet underneath, but the purple material of the Frog Toggs bled and stained (ruined) her textile jacket and pants underneath. After witnessing that, I've chosen other manufacturers for rain suits. YMMV
The best rain suit I had was a no-name variety bought from a long-since-out-of-business moto accessories store in town. Nuclear blue for visibility, storm flap in front, elastic gathers in back to keep the front smooth to the weather, velcro adjustment on the sleeve openings, hood that stows in the collar. The pants gave up after about 20 years, but I still have the jacket after 20+ years.
Now I have a Gore-Tex riding suit so I don't have to change for rain, which is the way to go if you ask me.
