Looking for a stylish parka type affair a bit like this North Face one but not.

I tried this on in navy blue yesterday, and I like the belt and also the fact that it covers my bum. I want it mainly for camping holidays/school run etc, but was envisaging something a little less formal and with the ability to layer underneath when the weather turns colder.

I was imagining something more like this but it's a little bit short.

Does anyone have any ideas or recommendations?

Drizabone do good coats like this.
Have just ordered this because it was a bit funkier.

I like that second one but can't seem to find a UK stockist.

I've been looking for something similar for school runs as have got soaked too many times at pickuptime. I had decided that I would just have to compromise on stylishness for practicality on this one as I didnt want to spend too much. Was going to look in TK Maxx but would you believe I was in Costco the other day and they were sellign these outerwear jackets - for £18 with VAT. Was a bargain so I took it - they are really good qaulity so far that I can see. This is the make:

I got it in chocolate brown but was also available in some brighter colours.
