Hey guys, I was thinking of adding a Barbour jacket to my wardrobe. Ideally, it should be able to last through fall into the start of winter (though not the worst of winter) and was looking at these:

Military Jacket
331

Sapper Jacket

Wessex Jacket

What do you guys think? I'm kinda leaning towards the last one; is it too much?

The Wessex is a great jacket. So is the Tokito Military. Both are heavier than the Sapper. What size are you? I have a Wessex in M and L and a Tokito Military in Black in Large for sale

I'm 5'10" and 128lbs, so I'd probably be small :-/

Stopped by North River Outfitters in Beacon Hill this week before a meeting at MGH. They had a decent selection of barbour marked down 40% off to make room for the spring items. They had a Sapper in my size but I didn't try it on due to lack of time. I'd always liked it when I saw pictures online.

How heavy of a jacket is it? I'm looking for a waxed cotton jacket for Spring & Fall. Is the Sapper a good candidate? It's listed as insulated so I wonder if it's more of a Fall/Winter, colder weather jacket. How does it differ from the Bedale/Beaufort in terms of materials? If the Sapper is more of a winter coat, is there something in their line that looks similar but lighter weight?

Note, the staple Barbour jackets were not on sale.

Patrick, I really liked the ones in my posts about, but when I saw pictures of what they actually look like... I was completely turned off. Imho, they all look pretty flat and drab in real life...

Do you feel the same?

Have a look at the Trooper - padded but not too heavily

Good point. The Sapper certainly looked differently than I expected.

How so? Some pictures I have seen look awesome, but others very boring. I wish I was in Boston. I have been eyeing the NRO online price as it is the best I have found, but 40% off would be even better.

Compare how it looked in my post a few posts above:

with:

I find that these barbour jackets look way better online that they do IRL.

Exactly! I'm going to head back down there Mon or Tues to try it on. It just looked like a box on the hangar. I couldn't tell if there was some sort of interior drawstring that draws the midsection in a bit. Just something to give it more shape and make it look more like your top image.

Any other comments on the insulation/warmth rating on the sapper? I'd prefer a lighter weight jacket that I can add a layer to underneath. That would give me more versatility to wear it on wet warm weather and wet cold weather.

Maybe the Orvis model and this other one are different. The linings appear to be different - quilted vs. tartan.

I gave up on the Sapper I've been lusting after for about 3 months and bought an Ashby online on deep discount. Hopefully it will do the trick.

And this is what the Wessex looks like.

I got lucky and found a Flyweight Sapper at the Orvis outlet in Kittery today. I planned to hit the Barbour outlet and checked out Orvis on a whim. The one thing that had me 2nd guessing the Sapper was the insulation. I wanted a lighter weight version, but the Lightweight Sapper was no longer available (orvis used to list it but it's been disco'd for a while now).

I happened across the Flyweight Sapper in the clearance section of Orvis and jumped on it. It was marked down from $399 > $279 > $239. I asked the SA to set it aside while I ran next door to Barbour. He then offered to apply an additional 20% off for the sale to start next week. I never even made it to the Barbour store!

Couldn't be more pleased! It's the exact jacket I wanted in a lighter, 4oz waxed cotton with no insulation. Perfect for spring. They only had one XL and once I found it I didn't bother looking around for more.

How does everyone feel about Barbour's custom developed camo? Looks like it's made up of silhouettes of different animals (dogs, birds, etc.)  I'm a fan- especially on this piece.
