Because You Deserve It. -
By: AvidKayaker from Madison, WI
You've seen Barbour on the Royal familty, in stores, and on people you've admired and you've known it sets the standard -- and that anything else is an imitation. At this point in life I buy for quality and the thrill of slipping my arms for the first time into this handsome jacket was a breathless moment. It simply feels right. It's the genuine article. I wish I'd been wearing it forever, and now I will. I was finally persuaded by the reviewer who said he wears his to work late in the week in the fall to rush in his mind a coming weekend in the country, where it will see rugged use in rustic environs -- the wonderful antidote to an urban work week. Some things are too important for compromise, whether it's the way a real crystal highball glass makes you feel on a fireside evening, or the way only a Le Crueset dutch oven can make a proper cassolet. If this is the look you want, then this is the only authentic and genuine way to achieve it. And you will feel so, so very good in it. You deserve it.
Great Classic Outerwear -
With the burden of having to wear a trenchcoat to the office everyday in the Northeast spring to the office, this jacket serves as a great alternative as well as escape. It preps one for the upcoming weekend in the country, keeps everything in perspective. Lives up to its heritage as a functional item in all situations....
Great Jacket! -
By: bishopje from Carlisle, MA
This jacket lives up to its high expectations (even though I may never use the full-width, rear game and cartridge pocket!). The only problem I had was with sizing. I had to return my first jacket to get the next size down. Orvis was very accommodating with all of this.
When you have something figured out right., you don't have to make any changes.

great fit. Nice looking. works well in multiple weather conditions. layers good too. I may go back and get the hood too. No regrets on this one. Basically an instant old friend from day one.
Have to love this coat! -
By: Necie from Chicago, Illinois
I purchased this coat for my son's 24th birthday because he had been trying to permanently my husbands coat gor the last 10 years, because these jackets last forever. Love seeing him wear it in the field or the pub with equal style. Can't wait for my future grandson or daughter try to borrow his. Just get it!

Perfect Jacket -
By: us1985mc from Virginia
- This Beaufort jacket is great. It is just the right coat for rainy and windy days, but tough enough that I know when I go on a walk in the woods with my dog and my little girl it won't tear on the smallest twig. - I'm so glad I bought it through Orvis as well. The customer service personnel were wonderful and demonstrated only the best business practices and provided top notch service, a word you can definitely use to describe Orvis. They worked with me to get the size I needed and waved the extra shipping charges. Way to go, I will definitely continue to shop with Orvis for both the quality of the products offered and the service you receive.
Why Settle for Less -
By: pvErik from Palos Verdes, CA
Finally pulled the trigger for this great jacket, and it was everything I expected. If you are looking for a great jacket that will outlive all of the others in your closet, this is it. As classy in the city as it is in the country.
Best Jacket Ever -
I bought my husband a Barbour jacket for those chilly, damp days we have in the South. His jacket has proven to be tough enough to withstand day-to-day activities on the farm and looks nice enough to wear on trips to town. An outstanding choice.

The Barbour Sporting Classic Beaufort Jacket: A jacket that will last for years — even decades — with yearly reproofing.
Your Barbour Jacket — A Great Value that Lasts for Years
With regular reproofing your waxed cotton Barbour jacket will remain waterproof through many years of faithful wear—Barbour receives vintage jackets of thirty, forty, even fifty years of service for reproofing and repair.
Reproofing: the Process that Preserves the Outstanding Quality of Your Jacket
Waxed cotton is made waterproof by impregnating the cotton fabric with a wax specially formulated for the maximum water-resistant qualities. Also called oiling, waxing, redressing, or waterproofing, reproofing is the process of re-applying the wax to keep your jacket fully waterproof and wind resistant. Reproofing helps to protect your favourite jacket from severe elements while rejuvenating and restoring the garment, thus prolonging its years of effectiveness.
Yearly Reproofing Is Best
It’s best to reproof your jacket yearly, especially if you subject it to robust use in the field, where regular conditions include heavy weather, mud, and abrasion. Garments should be cleaned with cold or lukewarm water to remove any mud or debris before being brought in for reproofing. Simply hose down or rinse in a shower, using a soft brush to remove any mud or debris.
How to Submit Your Jacket to Barbour for Reproofing
We highly recommend that you bring your Barbour jacket in to your local Orvis store when it needs repair or treatment. Our retail associates will be happy to take down your information and send your jacket off to Barbour’s UK headquarters for reproofing.
If you don’t have an Orvis store near you, the Barbour website has a form for requesting reproofing as well. For more information, please visit: Barbour Repairs & Reproofing.
