BODEN waxed jacket- anyone got it?

It was called a biker jacket for a while and now it's back as above.

With 20% off- return of preview item- I could have it for £116, but wonder how that compares to a Barbour- I have seen some barbours but not the whole range.

Has anyone got it this time round and what do you think of sizing? when I ordered it before i returned it but found sizing small- went for an 8 and it was tiny but this year the reviews say it's loose fitting.

I have the cosy parka which is also a wax jacket and I have a barbour. I am umming and aaahing over the parka. I am just not convinced it will be warm enough in the winter. I really need it to. It is nice and I do like it but for £150 it needs to be warm all year round. Still considering if I should keep or send back.

I have the older version of the wax jacket. It is ok but nothing in the league of a Barbour. It is quite cold in winter too, kind of suitable for either spring or autumn. I have large norks and it could do with a bit more room to accommodate them.
