What's a great waterproof men's rain shell / raincoat that I can wear over my winter coat AND by itself in the summer?

After years of freezing in NYC, I'm finally fighting the weather head-on. I just bought a North Face Nuptse 2 down coat, and I love it. But it's not great in the pouring rain or blizzarding snow. I'm in the market for a waterproof rain shell / raincoat I can wear over it.
However, I'd also love to wear the shell by itself during summer storms, without it falling off me. Obviously, it needs to be large enough to to fit over the SUPER PUFFY Nuptse.
What's a high-quality cover that can live in both climates? I don't want it to be too insulating, because I intend to wear it in the summer. I don't want it to be too form fitting, because I need to wear it over my marshmallow coat.
Sizing recommendations would be extra helpful! My Nuptse is a small, and fits me perfectly.
