  Two options

One is the storm cag as mentioned above. Last I looked you will run into everything from regular looking jackets that are cut large to the ones like the Kokatat's that have a bungie cord rim that will go around the coaming.

The other is to just get a quite large jacket size, in a zip up type. At times that can be easier to heft over the PFD than a pullover type. I was known to borrow my husband's jacket in earlier years.

Both of the above have wrist closures, albeit the hook and loop type velcro thing rather than latex.

I used an extra large pullover Tropos jacket as my cold weather and chilly stop cover for years until I got the fancier Kokatat cag that goes around the coaming. Yeah it is on the looser side. But the only effect that has is to make my paddling a bit noisier. It is a great feature for staying warm, especially at lunch breaks when I can almost sit down inside it.
