Sample 1:

Very thick, impermeable, inflexible fabric that has been treated with some chemical.  Windproof, but not insulating, and very heavy and stiff.


Hoods appear to be lined with shirt weight wool material. They are less stiff than the smocks and trousers, likely because the material was not impregnated.

Some mix Brushstroke and Moon and Balls fabrics.
