    This is a rare chance to buy a vintage Barbour NATO issue Motorcycle International. This truly stunning coat comes with a stiffened wax cotton belt. It is a size UK 38 (97cm). The condition is good; there are no holes, rips tears or cracks to the outer shell or the tartan lining. The jacket does not smell musty, but needs an airing to get rid of some of the wax smell a newly waxed Barbour jacket generates.

    The international range is a more fitted style than Barbour’s traditional range of wax coats although these coats are still designed to be worn with warm clothing underneath (Barbour build up to 8'' tolerance into their wax jackets). This jacket would fit a regular 38 or 40.

    The NATO REF NO. is 8415-99-130-8288 and the CONTRACT NO. is CT34B/0907. It also has the propper long map pocket, and not the silly short thing as fitted to the modern "Fasion" Barbours. Look through a book with photographs of the motorcyclists of yore and it's obvious that the International jacket was de rigueur riding apparel for the serious motorcycle rider. Barbour use the best 8oz Sylkoil waxed cotton to keep the elements out.
