Barbour quality & fashionable style -
By: californianana from Northern California
The perfect vest for northern California...quality construction and a fashionable style. The 2 way zipper is key..allows adjustment when you are seated. Pockets are sized and constructed well...wish the outer pockets zipped shut . This is my new casual wardrobe staple. I tried less expensive brands...without success. Will stick with Barbour for casual outer ware .

Exactly as described, beautifully tailored - sizing notations are correct - perfect weight for all but heavy winter needs - quality material.
Versatile piece -
This well cut Barbour vest is beautifully constructed in flattering colors making it a versatile piece--a great vacation item.
great vest -
The one thing I don't like about it is the light inside...particularly at the collar. Other than that...just what I wanted and needed.
Great vest -

Such a great weight to wear with a tee shirt and dresses the t up.
Barbour Quality Always Shows -
By: Iceyrider33 from northern California
I carefully look through any Orvis offering of Barbour (of London) garments, mostly outer-wear. This vest is striking -- the brilliant green, the sort of urban styling and, of course, the quality of materials and excellent manufacturer. The patch pockets do not make me look hippy because of the careful fit through the hips (tabs to cinch in the waist if necessary) and they are so English. True to size, size S is snug but fine for my 115 lb., 5' 3" curvy frame. It would be considered a summer weight vest in the U.K.
Great vest for any use!! -

This vest is perfect for all occasions. Goes with anything. Slip on for style, comfort, and to give yourself a little extra warmth when on outings and running errands. Fit is perfect!!

Beautiful shade of green; just right for cool Spring days when a coat would be too much.
Great fit and well made which I expected from Barbour. Very light weight great for spring and fall in California.
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 four classifications:
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.

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.
