A bit over your budget, but the Santini Touch jersey/jacket from Prendas is a bargain at £70.

In my experience Castelli and Endura make very good jackets. I've used the Leggero and Luminite. Both can get sweaty inside, but not as much as others.

I've also recently bought a Madison Stratos which has held up quite well too. It's more of a race cape though so won't keep in too much warmth, but does keep out the rain and wind. Whatever you buy though, don't get it from Tredz. At least you got an email from Wiggle, however, in the case of Tredz they just left me hanging for a week and half wondering if there was a thief in my building before I decided to call them to ask where my order was. The conversation went something like this:

Me: "Hello. My jacket hasn't arrived yet" (Proceed to give the guy my order number)
Tredz: "Oh sorry Sir, it's out of stock and we've had problems sourcing it from the supplier. It's should be in on Monday" (NB Almost two weeks after the orginal order and 4 more days wait from my phonecall).
Me: "Why wasn't I told about this?"
Tredz: "Oh sorry Sir, we USUALLY do call"
Me: "And no email either?"
Tredz: Oh sorry Sir, we USUALLY do email"
Me: "Oh sorry, I'll have a refund then"

This same scenario has happened on three seperate occasions now. The certain saying including the words p*ss up and brewery comes to mind.

Another vote for Gore Xenon.....I really don't think you would gain much by shelling out more than this. Watch the sizing though...I'm large in most, but med in Gore.

Gore phantom is another good one. The sleeves can zipped off to use it like gilet and its really well made.
