The Definition of Practical -
By: Henryvillespecial from Poconos
My Bedale is just right: tailored fit; snap pockets just above my hips; intelligently located slash pockets that warm my hands; eagerly sheds chill and rain. Smart and good looking too.

Great for cold wet days -
I foxhunt and is perfect gear for cold rainy days riding for hours. Only fault I have is the sleeves are short. I'm 6'2"
Great Jacket -
By: HTowntransplant from Houston, TX
I bought this Jacket for my husband as a birthday gift and he loves it! It's the perfect length, can be dresssed up or down, and worn with or without layers.
Classic quality jacket -
Beautiful jacket, very substantial. Runs large to allow layering. I bought a size 32 and it has room for a sweater underneath. Shipped promptly with standard shipping.
Good to Great -
By: BadBrad2 from Roanoke VA
This is a very well made jacket and very versatile. Two very minor complaints: the optional liner could extend part way into the sleeves to make putting on the coat easier and add more warmth. And the hood needs to attach better so it doesn't come off by mistake. I'm afraid I will lose it. Overall though a great coat!
Wonderful, classic jacket! -
By: Cen223 from Washington, DC
I bought this for my husband and he absolutely loves it. I would say that it runs a little big. We had to return the original one I ordered and get a new one that was a size smaller. He looks phenomenal in it though! It's warm and very functional and just an all-around classic. Highly recommend!
Since 1894, England's J. Barbour & Sons have produced clothes perfectly suited to life in the country. Their quality, durable clothing is cut for an active lifestyle and the fit varies according to each garment's design and purpose.
The sizing of Barbour’s clothing is divided into three segments:
In the case of Barbour outerwear, sizing takes into account the appropriate layers beneath. That means you do not need to order a size up for a comfortable fit.
Chest Sizes - Jackets
Chest Sizes - Knitwear
Men's Glove Sizes
The range of Barbour's clothing from waxed and quilted jackets to vests, fleece, and knitwear is suitable for both men and women. Fashioned with boxy construction for ease of movement, these pieces are sized with conventional UK sizing. For your convenience, we've included the US women's equivalents to help you find your perfect size.
The beginning of Barbour jackets
In 1894 John Barbour established himself in the burgeoning port of South Shields, supplying oilskins and other garments to protect the growing community of sailors, fishermen, rivermen and dockers from the worst of the North Sea weather.
Within a few years the firm became the leading supplier of oilskins on the north east coast, not only to seafarers but to others in the surrounding country - farmers, labourers, carters, shepherds - who earned their living outdoors in all weathers. By the beginning of the next century Barbour’s durable Beacon oilskins were well known throughout Britain and beyond.
The legendary durability of Barbour jackets
If there’s one feature that distinguishes Barbour jackets more than any other, it is their legendary durability. But, given the quality of materials used—genuine long-staple Egyptian cotton, solid brass studs, substantial metal zips, plus painstaking quality of construction with an average of 15,000 stitches and up to two hundred components—perhaps it’s hardly surprising.
The seams in a Barbour oiled cotton jacket are double rolled, each stitched through two thicknesses of fabric. It is an intricate part of the manufacture and it ensures that the seams are completely waterproof. Even the thread is treated with the same secret watertight proofing formula as the fabric itself.
How long a Barbour jacket will last very much depends on its use (or rather abuse in many cases). Undoubtedly, owners expect much more of a Barbour than any other garment because Barbour enables them to do more. They will subject themselves and their jackets to the severest conditions of weather, mud, animal contact and abrasion than they could ever contemplate if wearing anything less robust.
