    Warm high street jacket

    I'm looking for an insulated, waterproof jacket that I can wear at work and be a) warm (around 80-100g of decent synthetic fill) b) dry, c) semi presentable. So I'm ruling out anything with visible baffles, and anything 'vintage' looking - with oversized buttons etc. I thought there would be a decent range of such jackets from those companies catering to the high street commando, but I'm struggling.

    Jack Wolfskin seem to have this market cornered. I'm considering these options so far:

    Is there anything else in the £80-180 range I could consider? I've scoured the usual places but nothing is jumping out at me.

    With a cheap fleece or synthetic underneath.
    Just bought myself the red one and the blue green for my son with synthectic for underneath for my son too.

    Jack Wolfskin Chilly Morning jacket, Berghaus Maitland jacket off the top of my head.

    Edit:Also a quick look at Cotswold came up with the Ayaucho Ontario jacket and Highland Winter Parka.

    How about this Playboy Physical jacket from Fashionapolis. It has mesh at the sides and is presentable for work wear and casual wear.

    Yeah I guess but then how about this awful rating they have at Scam Advisor?: https://www.scamadviser.com/is-fashi...fake-site.html

    As far as I can tell the company have given up on the forum and so the moderators, quite understandably, can't be bothered to put in much effort either. It's all but dead. If the forum was a horse, you'd put it out of its misery.
