"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I suppose it depends on whether you are trying to sell an article of outer clothing or electrical/thermal insulation.

If this is a garment, then why on earth would you add the words "sheath" and "wrapping" to the listing?
The words really need to be well associated with the item, not just copied from thesaurus.com for the word "coat" that serves as a noun and a verb.  A coat is generally outer wear, so the word overcoat would be chosen to differentiate it from a jacket which could also be a suit jacket.

If this is electrical insulation sleeving or thermal insulation for a hot water storage tank, then "sheath" or "wrapping" would be applicable and useful words to use in your listing, but not for an item of clothing.
