Topic - windproof water resistant warmer jacket for winter?

freerangecat - on 19 Oct 2012
I've finally concluded that my old vapour rise jacket isnt windproof or warm enough for cycling in at this time if year any more (I was fine last winter, jst increased baselayer thickness as it got colder) so I need some advice on a replacement, but something a bit warmer. I cycle 4-8 miles a day generally, so nothing crazy but time to get cold and wet, or to overheat. I also don't like cycling in a waterproof-the vapour rise excelled when it was wet and not too cold ss I stayed snug and it dried quickly. I put the hood up under my helmet to keep my hair dry. So... what can people suggest please? I'm torn between a warmer softshell and something like the rab shadow hoodie that would be more versatile for layering too. I'm probably asking to much of 1 piece of kit, but I'm open to ideas...
