Insulated leather vests

I am looking for a heavy leather vest pretty close to this, only with insulation and a bit longer: http://www.hillsideusa.com/Men_s_Den...lar_p/808d.htm

I used to have one like that, which also had eleven pockets. Weighed a ton, got worn a lot, but last year I finally got too big for it and gave it to one of my skinny cousins. Where can I find something similar? It doesn't need to really be the same style as long as it's leather, insulated, and covers the entire chest so I can wear it when biking to work in cold weather. I don't need that many pockets, though.

Something like this could also work if I could find it in brown and size XL or XXL: http://drjays.com/r/503180

Or this in brown without the gator print:

There's gotta be something like that out there, right?
