Great sweater -
Got this sweater for Christmas. Was skeptical about it being waterproof but after a January of duck hunting I can assure you this is the warmest most dry piece of equipment I have. Plus it's nice looking.

I have two versions of this sweaters. If you look at the negative reviews, which are legitimate complaints, they are based on the older version of this sweater. The older version had a much thicker wind barrier. It did make it sound like you were wearing a trash bag. The new version is much sleeker and better fitting. The wool is soft and tight knit. This works really well in the cold. I use it for trap shooting primarily. I recently was shooting in -20 windchill. All I was wearing was this sweater and a shirt under it. I was perfectly warm.
Worth it -
I bought this for my husband and it is expensive but worth it. The sweater runs small, so order a larger size because it's not the type of sweater that you want a snug fit.

This sweater performs as advertised! Not only is it water proof and warm - it's good looking, too! My husband is notorious for trying to find clothes that will keep him warm. Well, this sweater does the job! The quality materials and workmanship result in a sweater that does not have that bulky look often seen in lined clothing. An excellent investment!
Best piece of cold weather clothing I have owned -
By: JDT81 from S.E. Pennsylvania
I am not a sweater guy, but I bought this a few years ago because it looked nice. What a surprise to wear! With out a doubt the best cold weather outerwear I own, including several Barbour jackets! When it is really cold out, this is my go-to garment, but it is also comfortable up to about 55 degrees. It can be worn indoors comfortably as long as you don't get too active. I'll buy another soon in case this one wears out someday.
Great product with all the quality of the Barbour line. It is the beat fitting and warmest sweater I own hands down. Runs a little small I wear an XL had to return and get XXL
Quality worth the cost -
The Barbour Storm Waterproof Sweater exceeds our expectations. The quality of the product is what we have come to expect from any Orvis purchase. We are extremely pleased with the sweater and feel that the high cost was justified by the quality. It was encased in paper for protection and delivered without incident.
Exelent product. -

Great sweater. Fit was just as expected, product was well made, and liner makes it easy on and off. Would definitely recommend it to anyone.
Excellent Quality -
By: JamesM from New York
This sweater is well-made, warm and fashionable. It is virtually windproof and great for walks around the neighborhood or errands. It is close fitting and best suited for a light shirt (not sweater) underneath. Very impressed with the quality and style.
Ultimate Winter Sweater -
By: DS60 from Snowshoe,wv
This is a serious weather sweater not to be mistaken for an indoor fashion accessory. On a nice day, I can use it from 25 to 50 degrees outside. Under a Gore-Tex, i have used it in 5 below walking trails comfortably. The water proof liner is great when it is snowing, I tend to put a gore-tex over it in rainy or windy days.
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
Chest Sizes - Knitwear
Men's Glove Sizes
Best known for making waterproof and outdoor clothing for hunting and other country living pursuits, Barbour was founded in 1894 by John Barbour who began the company with oilskins for use on Scottish ships in the frigid North Sea. Noted for its high-quality, hard-wearing clothing, the firm holds royal warrants to supply “waterproof and protective clothing” to HM Queen Elizabeth II, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, and HRH The Prince of Wales. Barbour proudly proclaims its brand to be “an authentic British brand providing a wardrobe of clothes for country pursuits, country living and for those who simply love the country, while still maintaining the core values of its heritage, durability, fitness for purpose and attention to detail.”
Infused with Style and Comfort
For more than a hundred years, Barbour has developed garments that are comfortable and stylish, from fabrics that are technically innovative to meet the demands of outdoor living. The Barbour distinctive wardrobe includes waxed and quilted jackets, sweaters and knits, moleskin and corduroy clothing, midlayers, plus bags and accessories for men, women, and children. While maintaining its traditional country range for which it is known, the company also provides a modern mix of sophistication and heritage with updated coats and jackets based on designs from Barbour’s archives.
Barbour clothing for men and women runs the gamut from classic to sporting. Their contemporary collection includes updated garments sewn of new and traditional fabrics in stylish, fitted shapes. Their classic clothing is more generous in size, made to wear over jumpers and fleeces. Barbour’s heritage pieces have been inspired by designs from their extensive archives, and the sporting/active clothing is designed for an active country lifestyle and is specially cut for functionality.
Meeting the Demands of an Active Lifestyle
Barbour clothing is designed and constructed to meet the demands of an active country lifestyle. With the addition of wool and leather clothing to its recent collections, there are beautiful, well-made, and functional styles to suit everyone’s tastes and interests.

It is this commitment to quality and durability that has seen the name Barbour become synonymous with the best of country living.
