Q & As

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb Without any doubt this is the best jacket I have ever purchased. Great fit and styling, windproof and waterproof. I've been in some rough weather in this, very cold winds and rain and it doesn't penetrate the jacket at all. Pockets galore, including one zipped pocket on the sleeve unusually. The sleeves are quite wide by the way so will accommodate a chunky jumper underneath. Regarding the sizing, I am 6' 1 and slim build and the medium is spot on for me, correct length and not too baggy in the body. If you have a bit of a tummy though it may be a little tight around the waist although there is waist adjustment on the side of the jacket. Had it for two years now and it's still like new, admittedly I haven't worn it excessively but the quality of the materials means it will last a long time. Highly recommended then! 04 April 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointing Looked nice, smart but casual. However the fit was poor. large too big, medium too small. The biggest problem was the zip! Extremely difficult to line up at the bottom - gave up and returned it. 22 October 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good quality jacket The jacket is very smart, practical and hard wearing. I bought a size large for my husband and had to swap it for and extra large, so beware the sizing is not very generous. 07 January 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really Good but hard to get I have had one of these for a year. I use it as a motoring coat in an open car that does not have a hood. The sleeves are just the right length, it keeps ones back warm and it is waterproof. It is wind proof and very smart. All my buttons have stayed on. I thoroughly recommend it but found availability very limited and had to search hard to find one. 24 December 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by BUTTON PROBLEMS Excellent coat lightweight but warm and waterproof. However has an issue with buttons falling off!!! one of the buttons fell of second time of wearing it. Its on its way back to JL 21 December 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great jackt This is a great jacket it's so warm yet light to wear. Can't believe a cloth coat can be so waterproof. I love the waist adjustment allowing a casual of fitted look. So glad I bought it. 03 December 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Beware Sizing! I ordered the Barbour Challenger size XXL as a replacement for my old Barbour Balfour Size XL. The sizes bear no relationship to the sizing guide as I found when I tried it on - it was smaller than the XL Balfour. Why can't manufacturers and retailers sort this problem of changing patterns? Had to return what looked like a lovely coat and me probably finished with Barbour. Very frustrated! 02 December 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by Nice jacket but poor quality Liked this jacket the instant I saw it and bought it almost immediately. Took it back the following day after a button fell off. I obtained a replacement and after wearing it for 3 or 4 times a button fell off. Enough is enough and I've returned it for a refund. I can't understand why the buttons are such as issue (see other reviews) and it should be simple for Barbour to ensure they are fixed properly. 25 November 2012
