My wife loves it! -
By: Thekinghimself from Los Angeles, Ca
I purchased this as a birthday present and she LOVES it. Fits her perfectly. She prefers it over the Barbour International. The zipper is fidgety but overall, a very good investment.
Timeless quality -
By: Barbourtartan from WI
This is my second Barbour jacket - the first one survived ten years of heavy use. Fantastic quality, attention to detail, made in Bulgaria. Wearing this jacket makes you feel special. Very warm, great for snowy climate. Recommend ordering up in size.
A great jacket/coat -
By: shipshop from Chicago area
This is another fantastic coat by Barbour. The fleece lining in the body is a great liner for the cold weather and it is easy to wear, move around in and drive in. The length is great to cover the rear and great for longer sweaters underneath. I usually wear a US8 in Barbour, but had to size up to the 10 for more comfort. I love this coat!

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.
