Barbour have a long history with the outdoor lifestyle, manufacturing clothing which is both practical and stylish. Today the brand is well known for quality and a fashion designed for a full lifestyle wardrobe.

At e-OUTDOOR we are proud to say that we have always stocked a range of Barbour clothing. Initially meeting the need of people involved in the outdoor world of Northamptonshire. This has been an invaluable experience that has enabled us to understand today what range of Barbour clothing will appeal to almost everyone.

The Barbour Quilted Jacket

Here are three of our most popular Barbour quilted jackets that we stock at e-outdoor. The Powell, the Shoveler and the Heritage Liddesdale.

They vary in weight and thickness and consequently the warmth they provide. All three have the classic diamond quilted design and corduroy collar with hand pockets at the waist. Many of their other features are quite different though giving you a choice of weight, warmth and style. None of them are waterproof.

Barbour men’s quilts are perfect to keep you warm when the temperature drops during the summer months, ideal for spring and autumn, and they will take the edge off of winters colder days.

Men’s Powell Quilt Jacket

This is the thicker and hence warmer of the three quilts, the 50g wadding and the cosy fleece lining will keep you warm against the cold of the day – or night. It is also the heaviest weighing around 980g. The fleece colour nicely offsets the polyester outer fabric adding to the distinctive stylish Chelsea look. A jacket that looks equally at home in the town or country with it’s leather edgings to the collar and the cuffs.

The bold two way front zip has the classic Barbour metal style which commands strength and authority against the elements, this has a studded sleeve cover providing added protection. There is a corduroy funnel neck to seal you in and bring a touch of the gentleman to the wearer. Two waist tabs at the back of the jacket pull the Powell in for a closer fit to the slimmer figure.

There are two studded hand pockets at the front of the Barbour Powell, useful for items like your phone and a secure zipped pocket to keep your wallet safe.

At e-OUTDOOR we stock the Men’s Powell Quilt Jacket in Black, Navy and Olive colours.

Men’s Shoveler Quilted Jacket

Lighter (around 770g) and thinner than the Powell jacket the Shoveler is a traditional relaxed fit that has a far more casual feel about it. This is enhanced by a polymide lining which has a silky feel that contrasts with the cotton like texture of the polyester outer fabric. The collar and the cuffs are finished with the same outer fabric enhancing that informal character. An ideal jacket to slip on when going out in the evening or daytime.

The Shoveler also has the bold classic barbour two way zip centre front, with a sleeve cover that is studded with bold Barbour logo studs keeping you sealed in and warm. The corduroy funnel neck will keep your neck warm as the Powell Quilt Jacket. Two waist tabs at the back of the jacket will pull the Shoveler in for a closer slimmer fit.

The style of the two front pockets is the same as the Powell with a secure zip pocket above the right hand hand pocket.

At e-outdoor we stock the Men’s Shoveler Quilted Jacket in Navy and Dark Olive colours.

Men’s Heritage Liddesdale Quilt Jacket

The Heritage Liddesdale is the lightest of our three quilted jackets weighing around 570g. This is a classical style jacket with contemporary tailoring. Light to wear and the polyester wadding is warm enough to take off the chill of the day. The Heritage Liddesdale has a slim fit giving it a more youthful look. Though not waterproof it is wind proof with studded rear vents which makes the Heritage Liddesdale ideal for those of the equestrian community.

The lining and outer fabric of the jacket are consistent in colour and texture. The cuffs have a cotton style finish and the collar is a colour contrasted corduroy.

There is no zip to the front of the Heritage Liddesdale, it is fastened by sturdy studs emblazoned with the Barbour logo. The collar is shirt style leaving the neck open giving the quilted jacket a different style to the previous two quilted jackets.

There are two deep jetted pockets at the front of the Heritage Liddesdale with an embroidered logo. These pockets are big enough for most of your immediate everyday carry items and good hand warmers.

At e-outdoor we stock the Men’s Heritage Liddesdale Quilt Jacket in Black, Navy and Olive colours.
