Sony A7Riii weather sealing

I’m new to sony full frame having recently acquired an A7Riii. I took it out today in the rain, but being aware of previous criticisms of sony weather sealing i took an umbrella. I made an effort not to get it too wet but it seems even a small amount of water started setting off the hot shoe. Half way through the morning messages of incompatible devices start blocking my view. After a wipe down and leaving it off for a bit, it resumed shooting no problem. But now I’m wondering what others have experienced out in the elements? Are there any options to improve the protection aside from a full rain cover? I’m wondering if maybe a silicone skin would be worth trying?
