Rain proof clothing advice wanted

I have a Carhartt insulated coverall, (meaning it has long sleeves) but I want something suitable for chilly rainy times. For occasional use, but I want to stay fairly warm and dry. Not sure if best would be something that would go over the coverall, or maybe replace coverall with something else. Any experience with such?

I made a purchase yesterday, got a two-piece rain suit (pvc over polyester). I can put the rain pants over my regular pants, then add the rain jacket whenever the rain actually occurs.

I made sure the rain jacket fits over a normal heavy jacket I will be wearing. The rain jacket has a removable hood, which is a good feature for me. Thanks to all for the several suggestions.

The only stuff I've found that works in wet weather is waxed/oiled cotton, Barbour type stuff. Expensive but it works.

...and another vote for Frogg Toggs. I too get them one size bigger so they'll fit over whatever cold weather clothing I might need, yet still be suitable for wearing alone in warmer weather. Been doing this for about twenty years and haven't seen the need to try anything else.

Another vote for Frog Toggs. Lightweight, comfortable, and relatively inexpensive.

Try Vectra waterproofing spray.

I used it for years before I retired 20 years ago. I sprayed a long sleeve fishing shirt with Vectra and it was amazing how it shed water. I fished streams in the mountains of north Georgia every month I could get away. I fished in the pouring ran and I stayed dry in a shirt covered with Vectra. I sprayed on leather boots too. I met the man who developed it in Atlanta Georgia 30 years while working there.

He had a simple display set up in an antique store at the time. He took a few inches of toilet paper and sprayed it with Vectra. He waited a few minutes as I held the paper in my hand. He slowly poured a cup of water onto the toilet paper. 100% of the water ran off the paper. Toilet paper is about the most absorbent paper made and the water ran off like the paper was aluminum foil.
The Vectra lasted for a couple of years on that shirt, and I still have the shirt.

I have attended equipment sales in the cold rain. Wore a fairly inexpensive rain suit over my Carhart jacket and Carhart bibs. Stayed dry and warm. Took off the rainsuit when getting back in truck. All dry and no mess. Works for me. gobble

I have always spent a lot of time outdoors, hunting and fishing, often in rainy and windy conditions. I view rain and cold as 2 separate issues. I like light, tough, windproof rain gear, with no insulation. That makes it versatile for warm days and cold days. So buy it big enough to go over a jacket or fleece. Fleece wicks sweat away and feels drier.
My favorite rain jacket is a Cabelas Dry-Plus with Velcro sleeve closures and a big visored hood (always get a hood, rain down your neck is nasty). Matching rain pants are a good option because in heavy rain the jacket runs rain down on to your butt..

Then for warmth you can add as many layers as needed (from a golf shirt to a parka) under the rain jacket.

Remember if you are going to be exerting a lot of energy, start out cold. It is also good to have a way to carry the layer you take off if you get too hot.

I sprayed my Carhartt work pants with Thompson water seal, made them somewhat waterproof but they wore out quickly!

I like thin gore tex light colored rain jackets. I wear them in the spring and the light color keeps you from getting too hot. In the winter I wear them not only when it rains or snows, because they block the wind. Just get one big enough to wear over a couple jackets.
