They are often generated on mercenaries as part of their starting inventory.
Though strictly superior to the more common dwarvish and orcish cloaks, leather cloaks are generally used as temporary coverage for body armor until you can procure a magical cloak such as a cloak of protection, elven cloak, or cloak of magic resistance.
SLASH'EM gives dwarvish and orcish cloaks MC2, and various other items can provide MC2 or MC3. As such, almost any cloak is preferable to a leather cloak, as higher magic cancellation is considered to be well worth a point of AC - one exception might be for a character who already has MC2 or MC3, e.g., from SLASH'EM's cornuthaum or mithril-coats.
