    Outstanding Jacket - 12/9/2014
    By: from High Rock Lake, NC

    I deliberated before purchasing this jacket due to the cost. No question about Barbour quality as I have enjoyed the Barbour Classic Durham Jacket. I did need a larger size in the Sapper for possible layering this winter. Bottom line, this Jacket provides excellent weather resistance in cold, wet, windy conditions. Wore it the first time in 38*F, rain w/ 15 knot North winds...kept me dry and warm in a cotton shirt. No regrets, outstanding Jacket!

    Great looking jacket - 11/26/2014
    By: from Greensboro, NC

    In black it looks dignified and rather dressy. Nice and warm and not bulky for the warmth it provides. About the only critique I can mention is it is an exact fit and to add a bulky vest or sweater may make it a bit tight but other than that is is a wonderful jacket. The 2 way zipper really makes this jacket even more comfortable and versatile.

    Sizing - 11/6/2014
    By: from Virginia

    5 stars with an exception. Wanted a Barbour jacket. Needed an XXL (50-52). Tried on this jacket, but it was too tight to zip. Tried on every Barbour in the store. While quality is unmatched, sizing is a problem. Same results. All too small. XXL is actually an L, at best, depending on where the jacket is made. However, discovered the Cowen Commando Sapper jacket in an XXL. That's the one with the Union Jack on the sleeve. This one is made in Bulgaria. Fits like a dream. Big enough to layer. I would recommend a Barbour to anyone, but be very careful of the sizing.

    Ready for winter in Aspen - 11/3/2014
    By: from Aspen, CO.

    Let me start by saying the customer service Orvis provides goes above and beyond any retailer I've ever used. They were so prompt with my exchange, and even gave me a discount that left me with some extra Orvis credit for my next purchase. I bought my boyfriend the Barbour Sapper Jacket in preparation for our first winter in Aspen, CO. Pretty sure he hasn't taken it off yet. It's so warm and durable that there's no doubt we made the right decision purchasing this jacket! Highly recommended!

    The product is great although I regret having to order it from Orvis. I will only purchase from Orvis if I can't find the product anywhere else. Fortunately, I usually can. Once you have free shipping, like most companies, I will order more from your site.

    Classic and stylish - 2/24/2014
    By: from New York

    Searched and searched for a men's jacket that is not blah - in black this is a handsome jacket with classic style. Debated about medium or large and in the end decided on the large even though the fit on the medium had a sharper appearance... just not quite perfect..only wish there was a half size in between.

    Solid Jacket - 2/14/2014
    By: from New York, NY

    Jacket is on the heavy side, definitely good for late fall into winter. Looks good. Love the black hardware on black waxed cotton.

Size Charts for Men's Clothing

Since 1894, 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 four segments:

  • Heritage: slightly fitted, vintage cut
  • Contemporary: A slim—but not fitted—cut
  • Sporting: an active cut for comfort in the field
  • Classic: traditional, fuller cut

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.

Barbour

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.

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.
