30 oz is too heavy for a sportcoat. I have a 19oz that's too heavy, really.

It'll be a SC / OC hybrid - one that I intend to simply wear above my shirt when the temperature falls below freezing (in lieu of a suit jacket + 18-22oz. overcoat.) Possibly something like this, without the slanted pockets on the lower chest but with a throat latch:

I have some of his regular 20oz. Harris and its great stuff.

I also like the idea of a sportcoat/overcoat hybrid. How do you intend to change the pocket configuration?
