I ordered a Filson Cover Cloth Weekender jacket and it finally came in about two weeks ago. Overall, the fit is great and construction and attention to detail seems to be out of this world. My only complaints with the jacket are that there is no hood and if you want a zip out lining, that costs extra. Fast forward to this past weekend and I was at the Orvis store looking for a gift for my dad and they had a really good selection of Barbour Beaufort jackets in stock and I tried a couple on. Bad idea because now I'm torn. The construction seems to be just as heavy duty and the extra $100 or so includes the hood and zip out lining. I also like the thicker corduroy collar on the Beaufort. So now I'm debating returning the Filson and getting the Barbour. In reality, the zip out lining on the Barbour is probably overkill since I generally wear a sweater anyway under my jacket when I'm doing any outdoor work or walking etc. I guess I'm just wondering what the consensus of the throbbing brain of SF is on Filson v Barbour in terms of outerwear. Both jackets seem to be built to last but is there anything I should know about long term quality of one over the other?
