Or any of the standard outdoor brands, for that matter. It really depends on how much you want to spend!
Also, if you want any jacket to stay waterproof it pays to look after it. I wash everything like that in tech wash and reproof.
My MH jacket is comfortable and warm but slightly short where the drawstring does up so drafty when on the ground but nice to ride in. I have a new Musto one that's lovely and definitely long enough but not really been put to the test.
Generally I'm quite pro Dublin stuff these days - I think they've raised their game and while maybe not top quality, I've generally been pleased.
