best shooting vest out there -
By: douggieW from San Antonio, TX
Third shooting vest owned of various brands...by FAR the best design, quality, fit for ACTUAL SHOOTING. If you're a serious or even casual clays shooter, don't waste time or money on any others...well worth the money. True fit...at 6' tall and 160 lbs the medium is perfect!
Best Purchase Ever -
I bought this vest for my husband for Christmas, and it was hand's down his favorite gift! I was skeptical, because my husband has never cared for vests, but he loves this. The fit was very true to size. My husband gets hot very easily, and this vest provides just enough warmth to keep him comfortable. In colder days, it works perfectly under his Barbour jacket. He even prefers the vest over the liner that is made to fit the jacket. Worth every penny, and I would recommend to anyone!
Great purchase -
Great quality vest. Very warm and comfortable. This vest runs a size larger than you might have in other vests/brands. Originally ordered in a size XL and had to return for size L, which fit perfectly.

Worth the price! -

I bought my Barbour Dunmoor fleece vest almost a year ago at an outfitter shop on St. Simon's Island. It was a wonderful purchase and I have enjoyed it so much. It is a versatile garment that easily dresses up or down. I recently bought a second Dunmoor fleece vest from Orvis to give as a gift at Christmas. The Dunmoor fleece vest is well worth the purchase price. Barbour sells only the best!

Barbour hits a home run again with this well made, comfortable and stylish vest. The fit and feel are great and it is warmer than I expected from a vest of this weight. Great weight for our cold weather here in the South.

I know that at the Orvis shooting grounds the staff use the Dunmoor jacket a lot and so you can be sure that the Barbour fleece is very durable. I prefer the vest and the Dunmoor is definitely the best all around shooting vest/gilet out there in my opinion. It is warm and allows great movement when shooting. It's a quality garment like all the Barbours.
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

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.
