Polyvinyl Chloride is one of the most popular plastic materials in the world for a reason. On a microscopic level, it is similar to polyethylene, a plastic that astronauts use for space exploration!
PVC is also very flexible (yet hard), allowing you to move around comfortably. With a high melting point of over 100 degrees Celcius, you won't have to worry about immediate sun damage either.
Another name for a rain jacket is a "slicker". And although they are called this, they can surely protect you from other forms of precipitation like sleet and hail. In fact, with the rigid flexibility of this item, it would seem to protect against high forced hail balls as well!
