kazuki-sugata (on-head-wearing) of costume. Another uchigi was worn up above the first one, over the head. Kind of like a Heian version of hoodie or head-shawl? This was worn when traveling by noble & samurai women. Similar to the tsubo-shouzoku and I believe may have been sometimes worn atop it. from http://www.iz2.or.jp/mushinotare/
English leather buff coat, 17th century, a thick protective jacket that could be worn beneath armour. Major Thomas Sanders, a Parliamentarian officer of Sir John Gell’s Regiment of Horse, wore this coat almost 400 years ago. It has thinner leather on the lower arm to allow the rider to wield a sword or pistol and to control his horse more effectively. National Army Museum, England.
