Alternatives to a Boden "yoni" mac please? And handbag suggestions?

In my continuing attempts to be a little more stylish I have identified my coat/bag combo as being a problem, since I normally wear what can only be described as an anorak, with the pockets stuffed with keys, phone, purse, dog biscuits etc
The coat needs to be waterproof and have a hood as I can't carry an umbrella and push the buggy at the same time. I had previous quite liked the Boden rainy day macs but the current prints are all mad! I already have a nice wool coat that I never wear because it's always threatening to rain or actually raining.
Nice coats tend not to have voluminous pockets, so I would also like a handbag. DH offering to buy one for my birthday but will need specific instructions. Budget up to £200 ( big birthday!) believe it or not, when apparently the average woman has 13 handbags, I have never carried one.
help please!

Apparently sea salt coats fit well and are more waterproof than the boden rainy day jacket?

It's this one there was a thread about it looking like vulvas

Lands end squall is perfect for rainy days. I like that it has no logos and they do it in different lengths. Ocadow14 gives 20% off (it might need all capitals)
