Barbour Bedale -
Product was shipped fast and looks great. Classic coat, and added another to my collection of four. The liner is needed for winters in the Northeast.
Barbour Jackets -

Out of all the Jackets that I own Barbour cotton waxed jackets are one of, if not the best wet weather jackets around - tied with Patagonia products.
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 -
By: FoxHunter74 from Central Pa
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 -
By: irimi from Black Mountain, NC
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 -
By: happiestcamper from Fairfield County, CT
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.

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.
