Warm winter dog walking coat (not down) UK

Hi ladies, I am looking for a warm coat that's suitable for everyday use and dog walking, needs to be waterproof.

I am vegetarian so no down.

I've looked around but could do with recommendations from people that actually own a warm coat. Are the wax jackets warm? I live in Derbyshire so the winters can be cold. Thanks in advance

Didrikson parkas .. maybe with a padded gilet underneath for warmth .

In my experience Hurtta do the best waterproof dog coats, not cheap but excellent and breathable, wash well too.

Didrikson, all the way. I have a thin one (Thelma) which is just knee length and has good pockets, for poo bags, car keys, phone and enough space for cards/money to do item shopping. And a heavier padded, non down version that is nearly identical for very cold wet weather. ANd I live in Cornwall which gets the rain first. An upmarket farmer's shop is perhaps the best option.

I have a Barbour, but tweed, not wax, it's lovely and warm.

Merrell are great. I bought a knee length hooded coat about six years ago. It's lightweight thoroughly waterproof and the hood works well. It's brilliant. I've reproofed it twice and it's still looks new.
