What to wear on a mobility scooter in the rain?

Recommendation please:

Autumn had come & the rain is getting more frequent & the time has come to work out how I can stay dry on my wheelchair with powered tricycle attachment. I was wondering if those with experience could share tips, please?


I’ve seen a few options:
Poncho style with arms
Poncho style with clear window over handles/controls
Wheelchair cosy (+\- fleece lining) with normal raincoat
Wheelchair leg apron with normal raincoat. 
(I don’t think mobility scooter rain canopy would attach to mine as back is manual wheelchair so not same shape as a scooter). 

Any tips on ease of getting on, flexibility, is cheaper ok or less waterproof etc?

Thank you!!
