I was going to get this from @gdl203
 : http://www.nomanwalksalone.com/shop/index.php/clothing/outerwear/dark-green-felted-hood-fishtail-parka-1988.html, but wanted to layer it over a blue cafe racer, and I don't think that I could do that with army green.


How does the felted polyester on that feel, with regards to Weight and thickness of it? Also is it lined at all, and if not is it itchy? Waterproof?

The sleeves are lined, the body is unlined.  The boiled polyester is has a soft hand with some nubbiness, not unlike a high quality recycled polyester felt blanket, but a very soft one,    It's not as heavy as boiled wool, nor as itchy, but it's similarly wind resistant.  I haven't tested it in rain yet, but may experience is that this material is pretty good in a shower or briefly in rain.  It's not a true raincoat though.

Am about to buy one in black polyester, but you really think it wont hold up in the rain? I mean its a winter jacket shouldn't it be able to get snow on it causing no harm.

It will be fine in snow, but heavy rain is harder to keep out than heavy snow - really, only Goretex and impermeable raincoats will keep water out completely.  I am going to bet that this thing will be fine for light rain and for short times in heavier rain, but not for extended periods of time in heavy downpour.  You can have a jacket that can withstand a blizzard, but in a steady, heavy, downpour, is going to get drenched.  So, if you live in a cold place, this is fine.  However, if you live in Bergen (where it rains 250+ days a year, often heavily), you might want to think about a rubber jacket.

Cool thanks, this sounds good. I'm looking for a winter parka (so only dealing with snow) to wear over a thick sweater and I like how it is lighter than wool, and provided it would be of same warmth.

US retail is unpleasant coming in at just under a grand (Union is carrying it and probably some other places). I got it NWT from sufu for less.
