I've had a Barbour wax jacket before. Loved it and wore it out!
Since then I've lived in Texas and hadn't needed anything more than a T shirt.
Now I'm back in England with it's lousy weather I looked at the Barbour range and although very good, are IMHO over priced.
This jacket ticks all the boxes. Light, warm, waterproof, extremely well made and best of all 2/3rds the price of a Barbour.
Take notice of the all caps sentence about sizing. I'm normally a large but in accordance with the notice ordered a medium.
It fits perfectly and still has room for a heavy sweater underneath without feeling trussed up like a turkey. I also like the brown colour. You can wear it without looking like a member of the "green wellie" brigade
A great jacket and a great purchase.
