Hey hey, I have a question for ya'll. Does anyone here own an oilskin coat?

I'm thinking of getting one. I need a new coat this winter. I do tend to layer up underneath a canvas sort of coat, rather than get a giant, poofy jacket that is only good for JUST the winter. Being able to take a liner out of a coat, so it can be used as a lighter coat for the warmer seasons is nice.

Which is why I am thinking an oilskin coat might be a good fit. They seem rugged and able to withstand harsh conditions, like the winter here. And I am quite rough on garments.

If you own one, do you have any likes or dislikes about them? How is the wear and tear value? Did the oil/wax proofing of the oilskin last long before needing redone? Do you think it is comfortable, flexible? How well can you layer cloths under yours?

If you're reading this and have no idea what I am talking about, this is what an oilskin coat is. Kind of a long trenchcoat with an oil or wax based waterproofing in the fabric.

I don't own one but plan on purchasing one in the nearish future because I've heard nothing but good about them. You just have to get a good brand.
