Wax + Hay = not good -
By: SouthRidge from Virginia
I needed a barn jacket but when I return from the barn, the jacket is covered with small bits of hay on my arms. I have to take it off and shake as much as I can as not to carry all that hay in the house. Not much of the hay comes off with shaking If I had to do it all over again I would not. The jacket is well made that is not the problem at all.The wax is sticky for hay. I wish I had been warned.

Beautiful Twist on a Timeless Classic -
By: SoggyinSeattle from Seattle, WA
The limited edition lining in this classic Barbour is simply gorgeous. As a well cared for Barbour lasts no fewer than 20 years it's truly a good investment, (they can be re-waxed quite easily). This style is much more fitted than prior ones I've owned, a nice modern update while still a classic shape you can wear for a lifetime. If you like to wear layers I'd suggest ordering two sizes up not just one.
A very happy customer -

My wife has a good figure at 5 foot 2 and weighs 110 Lbs. I bought a size 4. The coat has a very tailored and fits her figure perfectly. However, I don’t think she could wear a thick cable wool sweater with it and still have enough room to move comfortably when all zipped up. I thought about moving on to a size 6 but the sleeves would likely be too long. The quality of this coat is outstanding. It has a rich but comfortable look. The zippers and button are very durable and will last for many years. It completely blocks the wind and rain and when paired up with a nice sweater or light liner, this coat is incredibly warm without being too hot and uncomfortable. Worth every penny!
Big in the bust. Not flattering. -
This coat is beautiful, extremely well-made, but did not flatter me. It was made for someone a little more busty. I am sorry it did not fit. Have ordered another Barbour jacket and hope it will fit better!
Classic comfort and style -
By: Cosmolina from Sound Beach, NY
The Morris "Strawberry Thief" print liner caught my eye. Maybe I live under a rock, but I never heard of Barbour before. Love the classic style/function of this coat. The fit is perfect (slightly fitted/tailored and very slimming!) and I appreciate the tabs at the waist to adjust as needed. The olive green is very dark and rich with a slight sheen to it. The liner is cotton, and there is no insulation. The product description on the website stated it was quilted, which is not true (wish it were) but I've stayed warm, dry & comfortable during cold/wet weather. Good thing I ordered up one size to accomodate additional layers. Yes, it's a splurge, but it's a well made & beautiful jacket that I'll appreciate for many years to come. The liner makes me smile...

Suprised my wife and had taken her to the orvis store in Vermont on our way to a antique clock auction in New Hampshire and bought her htis coat. She just loves the fit and quality of it..
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.
