Barbour Beauford -
By: Nitro287 from Henniker NH
My fourth Barbour . Best quality coat I have ever owned ! Plus Orvis is a great place to do business . 100% satisfied and I am hard to please . This coat will last 20-30 years if it is thornproofed. Five stars .

I have considered a Barbour jacket for years. Chose the Beaufort after much consideration. Many to choose from. This seem suited best for my use. Overall I really like it. My only criticism is some of the stitching and finishing of the sleeve cuffs. Seems a little shabby. Five stars otherwise.
Best Jacket -
By: JoeW2 from CT
I've had my Beaufort since the early 1990s (they're still made the same) and it is the perfect all-day outdoor jacket, has a useful lined game pocket in back (for carrying book, water bottle, hat, etc.), plenty of pockets, wind-proof, waterproof, stain-proof and always in style. Only had to re-wax once or twice in all those years. Has lasted countless days/ miles outdoors in all conditions; best gift ever!
The Best! -
By: Flintstone from Maine
Where else can you find such well-crafted foul weather gear tailored to your particular size? The quality of construction is immediately apparent; this is clearly a durable garment. Looks great, the right length, zippers are easy to use.
Not for everyone, but I like it -
By: Mali from Seattle, WA
Overall, beautifully made jacket. I love this addition to my wardrobe, but its not perfect. 1. Not super breathable, noticeable in Seattle, but may not be an issue outside of the rainforest. 2. A little heavy, so makes the neckline feel a little claustrophobic, but I'm kind of sensitive about things around my neck 3. Will send jacket in to have another inch added to the sleeves. Major improvement over most women's clothing, but I have REALLY long arms.
Woinderful quality -
By: Momoftrapshooters from Greenwich, CT
The Barbour Beaufort jacket is a wonderful style and of the highest quality. It comes in a nice variety of colors and is a classic. It is, however, the longer style of the Barbour jackets and was a bit long on my boys. They ended up with the Bedale style and are very happy.
Good Quality Jacket -
By: EnglishGearHead from Dallas, TX
This jacket is very good quality. I am a home builder and quite often am meeting my workers in rainy conditions. The wax coating does a good job of keeping me dry. I would like to have a couple of additional interior pockets, but other wise this is a good choice for those wet days
Awesome jacket -

This was a big hit with my husband! Even though we don't have much snow, we have cold rain, so this jacket is perfect!
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
The range of Barbour's clothing from waxed and quilted jackets to vests, fleece, and knitwear is suitable for both men and women. Fashioned with boxy construction for ease of movement, these pieces are sized with conventional UK sizing. For your convenience, we've included the US women's equivalents to help you find your perfect size.
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.
