Warm winter jacket

Bit of a long shot this, but my 2009 vintage dhb Finchdean Long Sleeve Jersey from Wiggle has finally bitten the dust. Sold as a jersey this was the perfect winter jacket for me, with a thick Roubaix style fleece it's pretty windproof and passable in a light rain shower. I usually just have a merino long sleeve underneath and I'm plenty warm enough, add a mid-layer and it's toasty when the temperature drops below zero.

Alas Wiggle don't do this anymore, does anyone know of something equivalent? I've tried a few other jackets (Gore Phantom, Mavic Echappee) but none are as warm as this one. I don't need a waterproof jacket, just something warm in English winters but not so warm I can't wear it above freezing, and with a good close fit, oh and hi-vis is a must too, I don't mind which brand.

Strangely, Amazon have a flouro one for sale here:, but not my size unfortunately. And there is a review of it here:

Alive at both ends, but a little dead in the middle.

    I'd assume Wiggle have just changed the name/model so worth having a look on the site, or alt give them a ring to ask what they've replaced it with.
  • I have just received the new wiggle asv winter jersey/jacket. Was £69.99 but got it for £49 with 25% discount and quidco to come too. It also got 9 out of 10 in the cycling weekly test last week. It feels lovely and think it'll be nice. Comes in 3colours also.
    Happy searching
