>> No.12978979

As someone that has never even seen a cloak irl I will disagree.
See, coats are basically made to be taken off today, right?
You step out of your house and into your car and any mall you step into cranks the heat up so you're uncomfortable in more than a t-shirt.
Cloaks give you coverage for rain and cold but are also very easy to put on and take off and more compact than a coat to store. They also won't crumple your clothes as much as a coat can.
Another point of them is they're much less labor intensive to make - they would be cheap.

I'd ridden a bike wearing a poncho. It's tricky but doable. I mean the whole cover chain thing was to stop the long women's dresses getting caught in it.
