I have taken a punt on one. Well found, hopefully it's exactly was I was looking for.
Easy returns if no good. I did order one myself but sent it back as it really is the same colour as my blue coat. I really didn’t need it either!!
I think I might pass but if you've a link, I'm curious to see what a wax cycling jacket looks like.
I saw 3 cows lying in the corner of a field and a squirrel looking quizzically at a stoat; what more evidence of warmer weather do you need?
They say they've re imagined them for cycling. I don't rate their imagination.
decathlon Btwin for about £40. Excellent something like this but a newer version. https://www.decathlon.co.uk/500-warm-cycling-jacket-black-orange-id_8369395.html
The Endura arrived today. Good fit, arms are a little long as I was expecting but quite manageable. Overall a really quality piece of kit and just what I was after. The front windproof panels are excellent and the back is more breathable. Napoleon pocket with glasses wipe, very useful and a good size. Three generous rear pockets and a waterproof zipped one. Underarm vents which I think will be useful as the jacket feels warm. I doubt I'll need more than a single base layer underneath and this will serve me for the roadbike and the mountain bike. Well found and recommended @vickster and thanks to everyone else for the suggestions all of which I had a look at and considered.
The waxed Barbour might have been cooler. This jacket is seriously warm, definitely not for above 10 degrees and no need for more than a base layer. I excitedly wore it on Sunday when it was 13 degrees; scorchio!

I picked up one of these recently too. Brilliant jacket for £35 on offer, if a bit shouty in the chest-infection-green colour. I was out in a similar temp to you and it was just about doable with all the vents open. Where's the glasses wipe though? Read several product descriptions referring to this and not found it on mine.
