THE Classic Barbour Jacket -
One of the first Barbour jackets I purchased and it really defines all the classic features one would expect. I especially love the ribbed cuffs that keep me warm in winter. The optional zip in liner makes this jacket very flexible ranging from a spring/fall jacket with no liner to the warmer with the tartan liner to very warm with the fur liner. I got all my Barbours from Orvis and their service is terrific. LOVE IT!
Great Jacket -

Barbour qualitty is legendary and this jacket keeps with that tradition. I am 5'11" 170lbs and the size 40 fits me like a glove. I bought the black color and it is very sharp looking. In short this is a great jacket both in fit and quality.
Great Jacket But a Tip -
By: amay from Shanghai, China
The Bedale is a good jacket. With care it will last years. I've had mine at least 10 years. I will give one tip - Where ever one stores a waxed jacket it should be ventilated otherwise it can start to smell a bit. This is common with waxed jackets. They cannot be washed and so the only way to mitigate this minor unpleasant aspect is to dry them properly and store them properly. Barbour makes wonderful jackets and it's certainly nicer than the currently ubiquitous "parka." Plastic-like, garish colors, made who knows where. It's so nice to buy things these days that are actually made where they are supposed to be from. The products may cost a little more but if we don't support these companies then everything we buy will come from the same handful of OEM factories in Asia.
Beautiful jacket -

I've wanted one of these all my life and just never pulled the trigger. A bunch of Hickey-Freeman suits, and a few Oxxford cashmere sport coats, but never a Barbour. Finally, with life slowing down, it was time to wear something more casual. I have to say I love it. Don't bother with the liner--that's why Patagonia makes vests! And to the person who didn't care for the hood I say--purchase a good hat! The jacket is a superb companion for cool weather fly fishing.
Thanks for the great service. -

I've long admired Barbour products. This is my first purchase of one and it has exceeded my expectations. One note of caution they are sized very gererously. I had to exchange my first one for a smaller size but Orvis customer service made it the easiest exchange ever.
Best loved all-around jacket -

Great jacket! My college-age daughter had been wearing mine and loving it, so I bought her one just like it for Christmas. It's very versatile and comfortable. Looks great going anywhere.
very nice coat -
By: pbbbbb from Richmond, VA
bought this coat for my daughter. Super nice to say the least. She was thrilled with it. It arrived in a speedy manner and though she didn't like the color, the local Orvis was happy to exchange it for the color she wanted. I do think that it runs a little small, so if you can try one on before purchase, that might be a good plan, but not a big deal if not as Orvis is easy to work with when exchanging.
Bad in so many way -
By: klescop from Connecticut
This is no 1 star rating because the hood is the wrong color and I'm incapable of understanding color before I purchase an item. The hood is terrible. To summarize: 1.) obnoxious label 2.) too small 3.) useless wire 4.) loose snaps 5.) sloppy design 1.) Barbour has put a label that faces outwards and right side up when the hood is down. This is an example of conspicuous consumption. It's meant to show off the brand, which is an expensive one, and let everyone around you know that you buy expensive stuff. That is just awful. I cut mine out. 2.) The hood fails spectacularly in protecting my head against rain. In fact, I am reasonably certain that more water falls onto my face when the hood is up through the "under a ledge" effect. Have you ever walked under an awning and jumped through the curtain of rainfall that gathers at the edge? The hood creates a curtain of rainfall onto your face. Terrible. That is of course, when the hood stays up. It's too light to withstand wind of any sort and will casually flop over and completely give up if you create strong gusts by walking in a forwards direction. 3.) What purpose does the wire serve except digging into my back when I'm driving, or making the process of lifting up my useless hood just a touch more annoying by forcing me to restructure the thing every time I want rainfall to be gathered and poured onto my face? 4.) God forbid you treat your jacket like a jacket and lift it up by it's hood. All you will have in your hand is a hood. A useless hood. The rest of the jacket will be on the floor because the snaps are completely incapable of performing their sole function. Do you sometimes like to roll your shoulders when putting on a jacket to get it to sit well? Well you now get to add the fun step of snapping one or two loose catches from the hood back on every time you do that. 5.) The tags, which conveniently are translated into 18 different languages will invariably flap across your face either blocking one nostril or tickling your cheek until you cut them out. The ends that contain the drawstrings will invariably sit at asymmetrical and absurd angles whenever the hood is down unless you adjust them to look alright. Conclusion: The hood is an affront to human decency.
