Hi all.

Just wondered about everyone's opinion on the new line of Barbour quilted coats. I've been after a quilted Barbour for ages, but have been put off by numerous comments on this forum saying that they fitted like a sack of potatoes etc! Anyway, they seem to have addressed this with the new "sportsquilts" which they describe as a "trim, tailored fit". This seems perfect. Any thoughts/experience?

(The "sportsquilts" are the top three coats on the right on this page:

I really like the Chelsea, have tried it on and it is indeed a more fitted jacket with some nice details.

I got the Liddlesdale fitted (already wear a XS). Most members of SF.nl wear it (even inside the city) cut to the bone

My favorite take, made by a company called Boggi apparently, but I cannot find this anywhere

I find the blending of "fitted" and Barbour to be incomprehensible! Though that pic looks good, I think all their stuff is cut for field use (like stuffing dead birds in the back pockets) . My one coat of theirs, a full-cut to say the least, I was advised to buy that particular model (at Orvis) because it has raglan sleeves, allowing the sleeve length to get to my 36ish need fairly well. All the others were "regulars" in body and sleeve length.

I would think you could find a quilted coat that is to your style fairly easily since they seem to be very popular--at least until Madoff showed up in his.
