coat fabric name?

I need a material that is water resistant yet still a fabric and a heavy weight fabric that can be used for a rather nice coat I want to have duplicated. It is labeled as cotton/nylon mix but, it’s heavier than dress fabric so I am not sure what to even look for when I go to the store and ask. It’s a very good quality and a tight weave. I could use some help with possible replacement alternatives Thank you.

    Hi Jaleh,

    I don’t know the name of the fabric you describe but our sources and stores might.  Try submitting a FabricFinder request at http://info.fabrics.net/post-a-fabricfinder-request/ and the sources and stores will contact you.

    Jaleh, it sounds like you are asking for two different fabrics. Is that correct? The first sounds like a ripstop nylon or possibly a twill blend. Could you post a picture? Might help.
