    If the Bristol is basically just a slim Beaufort, why does it not get more love?

    @JustinW no it’s zipped in fully. No flapping about, it’s done very well.

    Yea, they're pretty similar. I'm pretty sure that the Bristol is made in the 3rd world and the beaufort is made in england. They do it for other models as well. My bedale is made in UK and there is a comparable model whose name escapes me that is made in the 3rd world. I pay the premium for the UK stuff, but that's just me.

    The Ashby is the slimmer version of the bedale, which I presume is made outside the uk.

    I tried-on an Ashby, Bedale and Beaufort today. This thread was a tremendous help in knowing what features to look at in examining the difference. I really liked the Beaufort and may get one eventually, but the Ashby was the clear winner for now. Thanks, all! I just ordered one in olive(new) for $180.

    I’ll wait it out and find one on eBay for cheap as chips.
