I too used to see them all over the place early on - and now that I'm around level 21 or so, they are nowhere to be found. I actually kept one in my inventory from the very beginning hoping to get some heavy armor early on - didn't get to wear it until Light Elven started showing up in stores... It's a pretty cool looking cape, but the stats are garbage, and now I cant find another one -
I swear I saw a dozen of them all over before I reached Hatmandor - since then - I've only seen a handful of robe surcoats, and nothing for armor. ---
wait 5 minutes and check the store again, inventory at stores changes pretty quick, not sure on the exact time, but I know 5 minutes is enough. took me about eight tries, but I found the skill book for overdraw, but I did :) with enough patience you can find anything you need at a store it seems.

Once you get to level 18 (which, ironically, is when you can start wearing heavy armor) the capes seem to vanish from the vendors., dues to a programming error, or an oversight. This applies to both single and multiplayer. So if you're just starting out in single player, buy any that you see and hang on to them. As for multiplayer, you could trade with people for them or buy them early too i suppose.
