Waxing the Barbours

How often should one reproof their Barbour waxed items?  The conventional wisdom is every year.  Surprisingly, a new Barbour may sometimes need it after just a few months.

The Barbour Border

Which Barbour for a Tall Person?
The Border is the longest of Barbour's three traditional waxed jackets. The Beaufort is designed for shooting, the Bedale - the shortest of the three - was designed for equestrian purposes, and the Border is built for extended walks, in often inclement weather, across uneven terrain including deep undergrowth.

The Border is particularly good for the rainiest or windiest days.  And with a zip-in liner, combined with the extra length,  it is even warm in the winter.  Of course, the longer the Barbour, the heavier it will be.

Barbour Beaufort vs. Bedale

Beaufort in Sage
Bedale in Navy

“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.”  

- John Barbour & Sons

Many ask about the differences between the Barbour Beaufort and the Barbour Bedale.
