depends on the situation and material of the brown work coat leather is almost always more durable. If the brown work coat is made of canvas yeah it will last for quite a while but leather is usually king depending on quality of construction and expected use and depending on enviroment. If you expect heavy wear and tear I would go with leather more durable but canvas would be easier to stitch up.
i have both the work coat i have isnt the most heavy duty its one of those cheap dakota workwear coats and the leather is heavy to haul around especially when you pack 15 to 20 pounds of dog food and water
well if weight is an issue yeah the work coat would be the better option in the short term, You still have 2 months or so before it gets cold asf depending on location.Leather can save your ass in winter though.
My blue Hooded insulated Carhart coat bought brand new 4 years ago has lasted me that whole time traveling hard, riding trains, squatting, etc. through all four seasons and its kept me warm and mostly dry.
I don't think I would take a leather jacket wearing train Rider seriously. Summer tramper maybe??
