A new jacket

I have this old flight jacket which is getting old I would like to find something similar

I've had it for many years and it is starting to fall apart, it's also made of Nomex which is possibly the least waterproof cloth in the universe.
I really like its waist length and knit cuffs and waist band. I also like it's bi-swing back.
I've found this which is nice except that I don't like microfiber and the color choices are awful.
Can anybody suggest a reasonably priced lightweight water/windproof jacket that I might like.

Army/Navy stores (that's what we called them on the east coast instead of Military Surplus stores) will have tons of different styles of bomber-jackets. Just walk into one and look around.

William Gibson-approved vintage flight jacket enthusiasts Buzz Rickson's have a nice range. Sadly they don't fit any definition of 'reasonably priced' though.
