For rain protection, I always have a few trash bags in my camera bag. I put one over the camera, opening at the bottom. Cut a hole for the lens and viewfinder, run your hand up under the opening and you've got instant raincoat. If you cut the slits properly, a little small, you can stretch them over the lens hood and eyepiece without taping. One of those large golf umbrellas is nice to keep in your vehicle too.

I had a shoot a few months ago where it rained a lot, and the Portabrace bags got wet, but they are very water-resistant. The outside got a little soaked, but the inside was fine. Still, if you have trash bags, you can put your camera bag in one too.
