What coat do you have (or want!)?

I have a trusty brown waterproof hip-length jacket-a bit padded with a hood which is fitted, flattering and lovely and has served me well for years, BUT the zip has broken and it's now defunct sad

I'm 34, 5 foot 2, about a size 12 and want something nice-not too long, preferrably brown and non water-absorbing! Warm, but not like a duvet

I like some of the North Face jackets (I have a thin NF jacket which I really like) but some of the more padded ones are over £150 which is far too expensive for the current recession! Superdry look a bit teenagery...

Can anyone recommend me a coat-hopefully no more than £60!!

I have just got this Brora coat and if I could afford it I would also like a Didrikson for the super-cold wet days otherwise I just wear an old wax jacket for dog-walking and a Paramo for wet hill walking.

I got a great Michael kors parka from tk maxx for £69! It was autumn so they may not have as broad a choice at moment. Also found decent quality coats on la redoute and they have 70% off some coats at moment - just ordered wool coat reduced from £129 to £50
