Reply to "Modifying the '95 Pattern Windproof Smock"

Also Fjallraven still makes "cotton duck" type parkas, and smocks that you rub their proprietary wax into and set with a hair dryer.  This was the old school way to waterproof before the synthetics, gtx, etc, and is still valid, IMHO.  If you treat a poly/cotton smock with wax or other type treatment (DWR, etc.) it increases the water resistance, up to water proof (but not breathable).
