When the weather turns, you should turn to the most trusted brand in British outerwear. And what brand holds more prestige in the British countryside than Homes & Gardens favorite, Barbour? Yes, we love to celebrate a heritage brand and Barbour is the epitome, holding no less than three Royal Warrants. If it is good enough for HRH, then is is certainly good enough for us.
But international acclaim is not the only reason to shop this brand – especially not when there are Barbour deals to be had. The family-owned business has been making their waxed jackets, by hand, in the North East since 1894. For five generations they have dominated the world of countryside attire, but their practical clothing is equally popular in the cities – especially for anyone frequently caught in a downpour on their commute.
While we can't guarantee you'll be buying the same option as the Royals, we've rounded up a few great Barbour deals on jackets – waxed, cotton, traditional and modern – plus some wider sales to shop, so you're sure to discover something that suits your style.
Read on to discover your new favorite and then make sure to jump to our Hunter welly sale page for more great buys to complete your country chic look.

Is Barbour a good brand?
Barbour is a British, family-owned business established in 1894. Based in South Shields – which despite the name is up on the northern coast of England – their iconic waxed jackets were designed to handle the weather of a rugged coastline. Their products are still made by hand in a factory in South Shields, with the company even offering a rewaxing and repair service for their customers.
As well as jackets, Barbour make everything you need for a day out in the countryside, whatever the weather. Expect full length overcoats, shorter riding jackets and waterproof footwear. And, while everything is designed to face the elements, style is never overlooked, making the Barbour brand lusted after worldwide.
The royal family are among Barbour's famous fans, with the brand receiving a Royal Warrant in 1974 from the Duke of Edinburgh, then another from Her Majesty the Queen in 1982. Kate Middleton is frequently seen wearing their Edith jacket designed in collaboration with fashion icon Alexa Chung, showing the brand holds stead among all age groups.
In 1936 the brand founded Barbour International, which has become synonymous with quality motorcycle wear. This sub-brand is the place to go for classic biker clothing and has been worn by every British International team until the late 70s. Their functional oiled cotton suits were also used by members of the military.
