My winter coat is falling apart. I need something warm, waterproof, preferably hooded and if it could be not completely shapeless/frumpy that would be ace. Where would you recommend looking.

Watching with interest ....

Yes, sue, but where are all the wise MNetters with strong opinions?

I've had a look at north face, but they're £300+. Not paying that! Budget is £200, max, would prefer closer to £100.

Anything in Lands End? I got 2 fab ones from their outlet/sale section recently. Code FD25PC gets you 25p/c off and free delivery until the 12th.

I bought the Boden cosy parka this week but am sending it back as it's not warm enough. Have ordered the Joules Belmont to try and failiing that will try Merrell next. Probably the Ellenwood as I'm not too keen on the Haven.

Has no-one mentioned the Merrel Haven yet? I though it was mn uniform? Great coat op.

I recently bought the Merrell Ellenwood (the new version of the wakefield insulated) in black and it's awesome. Really warm and comfortable, has a massive hood and has a lovely shape. I think I paid about 170? Also comes in a few other colours

I will oblige, ATUA, with a Merrell Haven rec. Warmest. Coat. Ever.

You could check out TK Maxx too although I haven't seen anything online to date

I recently bought this, I love it! It has a detachable hood and fur collar so can be worn in several different ways. It's smart but also waterproof, very warm and comfortable, can't recommend enough!

I got a gorgeous one in tk maxx it's not on the website though.

I have just bought the modern down coat from lands end. Really pleased with it, so warm and toasty without the bulk.

Have you had a look at Jack Wolfskin? Dh and I have just bought ski and non-ski jackets from there. Seriously warm and weatherproof!

After buying a lands end down(water resistant not proof) and didrikson Naomi(massive on top if your small chested/petite) merrell Wakefield(doesn't have warm cuffs) I finally went with this one [[]] its warm, waterproof, lower thigh length and has a big hood.

Tempted by the Barbour. Not normally a fan but I really like that
