I have had a set of R-Jays (https://www.rjays.com.au) for about 15 years.  A few years ago, I got caught in 45 minutes of torrential rain and I remained dry (mostly - bit of rain trickled in from the back of the neck).  I bought the 2nd cheapest model in R-Jay's line-up.  I like them because they roll up tight and takes up very little luggage space (compared with the padded gear).  Only tip I can offer you is try them on with all your gear on and bend your knees - pants that fit you standing up might be too short with your knees bent.

If you are planning to be on the road for a several months, I might look at Gore-Tex or similar fabric that breathes (less condensation).

I've had some in the past that were a light fabric that turned out to have a waterproof sprayed on inside surface. They didn't hold out against rain for more than a few months. Then I went to vinyl that wasn't going to start leaking. I forget what brand and they're rolled up in the saddlebag at the moment so I can't tell you the brand. It was probably RJ's or MotoDry or one of the main brands. They do get steamy on a long ride.

I once had some fabric riding pants (not overpants) that were supposed to behave like Gore-Tex. They allowed water into the crotch, straight off the tank and down inside to my boots. I took them back to the shop and got a refund. Steamy is better than wet and freezing.

I’ve got the Indian wet weather gear and for $195 they are fantastic. Work very well and are comfortable. Just got some light sepage in torrential rain, which I really shouldn’t have ridden in. They also fold up into a pocket in the back of the jacket.
