Practically a coat positioned between a jacket and a topcoat / overcoat.
Konstanti (@konstantis) we used to call it "redicotta" (originating from the English word: riding coat), its length being in the middle-length of the above-stated garments (at approx. the mid-thigh).
Another term is "caban", IMO it calls for a lightweight overcoating (or a heavyweight jacketing) fabric to satisfy its destination; very heavy fabrics will probably contradict its purpose, although taste will have a primary role in fabric selection.
