In english I often use 'jacket' and 'coat' interchangeably. What's more common in hebrew? מעיל or ז'ָקֵט

In Hebrew jacket is lighter than coat, or used when wearing a suit.

OK, so a מעיל is heavier than a jacket? What would you call a jacket / light coat?

I haven't heard ז׳קט before, I was only taught מעיל in the few Hebrew classes I had
