    Good Packable Coat - 7/17/2014
    By:

    This is good quality, lightweight rain protection. I make lots of international business travel trips each year. This coat is just right for packing and has a good look that spans casual to professional dress. The size runs a bit small for layering (slimmer fit) than other "parka-style" coats I have had. One disappointment is that there are no pockets for your hands. For this price, it could easily have been worked into the design behind the lower cargo pockets.

    Barbour Breathable Sapper Jacket - 5/19/2014
    By: from mail order

    I had to return the jacket because the sleeves were too long and there was no way to alter their length. If Barbour had designed the jacket with an additional way to tighten the sleeves around my wrist, I would have kept it. They made no provision for arm length that was short. When you buy the "best" you expect it to fit.

    Elegant Rain Solution - 4/21/2014
    By: from Miami, Fl & Lake Lure, NC

    Great fit with lots of useful pockets. Travels well and keeps you dry in an urban setting. The zipper is a little hard to start and not the same quality of the zipper in the regular waxed Sapper. The blue looks black which is not a bad thing.

    Fine, but overpriced - 4/1/2014
    By: from Northeast

    It is a coat and while it looks nice there are other coats just as nice that are far less costly.

    Excellent purchase - 3/18/2014
    By:

    This is a very stylish light jacket. I am 6"1 and weigh 195 lbs. The XL is just a tad too big, but still looks good. The large would be too small for me.

  • 5/5 stars 5/5

    Simply Perfect - 2/21/2014
    By:

    The jacket is simply perfect, waterproof and truly breathable;; rather unlike most other manufacturers claims. Highly recommended.

  • 5/5 stars 5/5

    Good looking functional jacket - 6/3/2013
    By:

    This lighter weight Sapper has real style and is perfect for warmer weather. It is truly waterproof. Some say it fits snug, I'd say just right, even over a sport coat. Highly recommended!

    Good but a bit pricey? - 4/15/2013
    By: from San Francisco + Dublin Ireland

    It's a nice fitting jacket. It's not too heavy. I needed a rain jacket to visit family in Ireland. So far it fits the bill. I cannot attest to tis waterproofness as it has only showered lightly so far in Dublin. It is a comfortable jacket but I dock it one star as I feel its over priced. I think it should be atleast $50 cheaper. Perhaps its because of the Barbour name or the manufacturing process. Why do I feel this way?... well compare it to Marmot or other more robust Gore Tex based jackets and you'll probably agree. I am more than a little worried that I might tear it on something as its material is pretty light, but again it is comfortable and not too heavy and I hope waterproof.

    Nice Jacket - 3/28/2013
    By:

    I am 5'9", 190 lbs, jacket size@ 41, and ordered the medium. It was just a bit too tight in the chest and certainly would not allow layering. Pro: It's a very light, stylish jacket with no insulation; the Navy looks Black to my eye, and it's very well made despite the zipper on the wrong side. Con: I'm just wondering how I could justify paying this price for what is essentially an expensive shell. My shell may not look as nice, but on the other hand, I already own it.

    Perfect! - 2/27/2013

    Warm, comfortable and fitting. Couldn't be happier.

Barbour of England: Size Charts for Men's Clothing

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:

  • Heritage: Slim fit. Order one size up for a close fit and 2 sizes up for a larger fit.
  • Contemporary: A fitted cut. Order regular size, but expect a lean and close fit.
  • Classic: An active cut for comfort in the field with a traditional fuller cut.

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.

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.

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

Barbour of EnglandIf 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.
