Looking for a heavy-duty garment rack to hold multiple pieces of weighty clothing in a storage room.

I have a (not so) small collection of heavy wool cloaks, velvet capes, leather dusters, and other non-lightweight clothing for myself and my room mates, that we use for Ren Fairs, LARPs, etc. We've been keeping them in a storage room on a portable garment rack, but every few years, the rack breaks - inevitably at the plastic joints that holds the metal rods together.
I've looked on line for a stronger clothing rack, but all I can seem to find is California Closets, or the same nice looking, but flimsy racks that will snap again under the weight of the clothes.
I'm also looking for something portable / movable, as the room they are in gets shuffled a lot as various conventions / fairs / LARPs come and go, and we access different inventory.
Can anyone point me in the direction, purchased or easily DIY, of a sturdy garment hanging solution, tall enough to handle cloaks and longcoats?
