For your scenario, a Gore-Tex windbreaker/rain jacket, large enough to fit over your armored riding jacket, and complementing Gore-Tex pants, purchased at a sporting goods/outdoor wear store, would fit your needs, provide excellent rain protection, and reasonably comfortable and convenient riding. More durable than the $ 39.95 sauna-like rain suit. (My gratuitous wardrobe consultation only; many other valid approaches exist. I've successfully gone that route; now have more elegant choices (not unlike Twinjet).)
