Product information

The Sapper jacket is a practical and sophisticated jacket from Barbour with a utilitarian look. Made in waxed cotton to give you water repellent qualities, the jacket looks at home in the city or the country.

The length of Barbour's Sapper jacket is 78-83cm.

Please note: Due to the nature of the oils in the wax, it may transfer onto other materials. Therefore we recommend that it’s kept away from paler materials, especially in warm conditions.

Editors Notes

The Barbour story began in 1894 in the Market Place in South Shields. Today the 5th generation family-owned business remains in the region, with Barbour’s headquarters located in Simonside, South Shields.

Although it sources products from around the globe, Barbour's classic wax jacket is still manufactured by hand in the factory in Simonside with over 100,000 jackets processed via the central, subsidiary and local customer service operations each year.

Today, Barbour remains true to its core values as a family business which espouses the unique values of the British countryside and brings the qualities of wit, grit and glamour to its beautifully functional clothing.

Q & As

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Trendy This jacket looks fab on my. husband. He wears it all the time. It looks very smart, is warm, and waterproof. 09 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A chic Barbour jacket The cut and the colour make this Barbour suitable for town or country since it can be worn over a sweater, sports jacket or even a suit. It is waterproof and the quilted lining protects against the chill. I am delighted with it. 22 December 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awsome service Very satisfied with the service and the help that i got with posting my jacket all the way to Sweden. Extremly happy that i could buy it. Thanks John Lewis!!! 11 January 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Jacket! I bought this as a gift for my partner this Christmas and he loves it. He thinks it is fantastic and wears it all the time! It looks great also. We went for a long walk and got caught in heavy rain an hour from home, he was surprised at how dry and snug it kept him. The jacket dried out well and he's been wearing it ever since! 09 January 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Sylish yet practical! Well-cut, this coat draws on the quality of a Barbour jacket, yet is slightly more under-stated in style, making it a versatile item for both smart and casual wear. The pockets and high-neck are practical additions, yet do not detract from the overall look of this very attractive coat. 03 December 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Jacket This Barbour Sapper jacket is first class and should be just great for the winter. All you expect from such a well known name as Barbour. 17 November 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simple Style. Not only a great Barbour product you'd expect, but has all the modern style of the classic wax jacket. Warm, smart, casual, fancy lining, been searching for the right Barbour for ages - this is perfect. With more wear the jacket is looking better and better - will love it for years! 13 November 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by A Good All Rounder Bought this jacket for work and general wear. Wasn't sure about getting a waterproof jacket without a fleece liner but this is excellent and more comfortable for it. Was disappointed at first that I couldn't get it in olive green but the black has grown on me and its probably smarter for work. The pockets are a decent size but could stand to be roomier. Now it just needs to last me 8 years like my old jacket (which was hanging off me to be fair). 06 November 2012
