    Considering to buy the Barbour Beaufighter jacket. Since I can only get it Online (and I didn't find any good pics in teh internetz) - could someone post pics of the jacket (ideally wearing it)?

    Are there alternatives for the jacket?

    Kind regards,

    Max

    I bought one and promptly returned it. I didn't take any photos. It had two major problems:

    1. The body fit was really boxy - even more so than the typical Barbour jacket.

    2. The hood is terrible. It's anchored to the jacket by zipper, and the zipper is only about 4 inches long. The ends of the hood are then flapping free and the whole shape is screwed up.

    I would recommend that you pass on it. I'm programmed to like this jacket (I love waxed cotton & parkas), and it was a total disappointment.
