scotchgard works well on some clothing. the tighter the weave of clothing the more waterproof it is.
if you have pure wool garments you can soak them in lanolin and that will make it waterproof.
fleece is also highly water resistant. I believe the half-moon cloaks and cowls are quite water resistant.
some people wear ultra-light rain jackets under clothing. V-neck water resistant wind jackets/pullovers also are a nice layer to have. I usually carry a pair of rei waterproof pants that I found at a consignment shop with my gear. If it rains, I'll wear it under my garb pants and above my thermals or pantyhose (which is an amazing anti-tick layer by the way).
And honestly, if it's summer - a lot of people just get soaked and bring extra layers that retain some warmth while soaked (certain synthetics, wool, fleece). DO NOT WEAR COTTON unless you want to cool off insanely quickly. Same with wicking undershirts and tights.
