Out There Somewhere
i am lucky enough to have a Barbour International waxed cotton jacket that i got for FREE from a friend when i was visiting England in August 2008. he bought it and it never fit him, so he tossed it into a corner of his garage and got it out only to give to me! what a guy.
i like it because of the pockets and because i can fit a sweatshirt, sweater, or lighter weight garment underneath it.
admittedly it isn't much on visibility...then again neither is my leather...
BIG function + style points tho!
at ZERO $$$ the price was certainly dead-on.
I've had a Belstaff jacket & pants for about 12 years & they are still great. They work well in the rain, although you do get rain down the neck of the jacket. I have only reconditioned them twice. They are not as warm as some of the textile stuff they have now, but with a heated vest I never had a problem.
