Bedale Jacket -
By: Crazycrawler from Omaha Nebraska
Bought the jacket for an upcomming trip to Alaska. I have not had a chance to try out in the rain but it fits and looks great on me. Very fine workmanship, this will be my go to jacket for years.
Best and most versatile coat -
By: japantiger from Austin
Have used this coat now for 6 months. Great coat...just the right fit; not too baggy...just enough for layering without feeling bunched or tight. Waterproof which makes it very versatile; especially when adding the hood. Hunted in it in the fall in the Northern Hemisphere and am taking it next month to the South to Hunt Red Stag. It will handle whatever the weather throws at me. My second Barbour coat...both great.
Phenomenal jacket -
By: PRLee from Tennessee
I've wanted a Barbour for ages, I'm so glad I finally bought this one. I needed a jacket to travel to Italy in January when it's chilly and rainy. The Bedale is plenty warm for 35-50 degree temps, sheds rain, and has great pocket room. It felt a little big at first, but wearing it over a suit or sportcoat, or a thick sweater needs that extra room. Money very well spent.

It's my first Barbour purchase. And it most definitely will not be my last. Size was perfect. Comfortable. I've already worn in wet conditions several times and it kept me warm and dry. I would highly recommend this product

This is a standard by which all jackets can be judged.

You will LOVE this Jacket! -

This is my 3rd Babour and I absolutely love it. It fits better than my Beaufort. Be sure to get the liner too. I'm proud to have made this purchase and I love to wear it. It seems to get better with age.
Great for outdoors -

The jacket was my husband's favorite Christmas gift. He wore it all weekend while hunting at our ranch and it was super warm and comfortable.
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

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.
For more than a quarter century, Orvis has teamed up with Barbour of England. Since 1894, J. Barbour & Sons have produced clothes perfectly suited to enjoyment of life beyond the city. It is this commitment to quality and durability that has seen the name Barbour become synonymous with the best of country living.
