Absolute shambles. I bought a couple of other items from them along with the jacket. They shipped the other items and marked the jacket as shipped, but there was no jacket in the package... I have emailed customer service but this is very worrying.
Same with medium size
Absolute joke of a company At end of last week they blamed moving warehouse for the delay in the jacket being despatched despite the DPD website saying they’ve received pre delivery notification on the Wednesday and it would be shipped over the weekend. just phoned them now for them to say they’ve sold out of the jackets and they are blaming DPD saying they haven’t scanned the parcel on the van even though DPD say they haven’t received the parcel good luck if anyone else ordered anything as if it’s not arrived by now there’s a chance you won’t be getting anything
Sizing seems about right to me. I'm normally a small and it fits OK!
What’s the sizing like on them? im normally a medium in outerwear so opted for a medium. Hopefully arrives early next week as they’ve said it’s all processed just waiting to be sent to DPD as they are in the middle of moving warehouses

Saw this in the North Face Outlet store in Portsmouth for £235, so this seems like a really good deal for a well made waterproof thermal jacket. Open a new account and use code "10%OFF" for …
Gone up to £159 now. Congratulations if you bagged one.
Thanks for posting @Agnes110 and congratulations on your first hotukdeals thread (highfive)
Congratulations. Don't be too worried when it first arrives. It will seem really dark and really shiny and a little tacky to the touch. Wear it lots and the wax will settle down and it'll get better and better with age. Don't sit on any light coloured furniture in the first few weeks with it (lol) Washing machine and tumble drier are a no no. Get some febreeze
Thanks for your input . I have already ordered Barbour jacket today so fingers crossed
Griggs are excellent. A very long standing and respected agricultural merchant that's pushed heavily into the country retail market in the last decade. I was fortunate enough to visit their store (with the most amazing cafe attached) several years back. I've bought online from them in the past 12 months (a Barbour jacket as it happens) and it arrived quickly and in perfect order.

A barbour jacket also isn't particularly insulated. It's the waxed outer cotton layer which is water/windproof and can be in a couple of different weights (the more oz the thicker) plus the wool inner lining. It's not a technical piece of clothing like a north face jacket. It will keep you fairly warm and dry especially if you're on the move but it should be the top layer. They sell liners you can zip in or you can just layer it over a big jumper or even a thin puffer/quilted jacket
Thanks, useful to know.
Agreed, different ultimate use cases, think TNF of more of a sports wear and you begin to understand the differences. By the way, also agree, never put a Barbour waxed jacket in the wash, it will strip away all the waxing and ruin the jacket, probably also ruin your washing machine too!
It's difficult to compare the two. They both tend to serve slightly different use cases and both of them divide people when it comes to wearing them 'in town' rather than in the wild. If you want a modern look that performs really well when hiking/climbing then a technical jacket from TNF wins over Barbour. If you want a classic look that performs really well on country walks and outdoors in general, but you don't plan on climbing an entire mountain, you might prefer a Barbour. But know that while both should last a long time, they'll need to be looked after and maintained. Though at least you can probably chuck your TNF in the washing machine XD
Please note that tax is added separately on top of the price.
My jacket has arrived, looks great and glad I didn't size up. :)
Wanted a pastie and ended up with an overpriced jacket. 3/10 would not shop again
Fantastic, just spent £150 worth of clothes but an additional 10% off was a nice bonus. There’s loads more in the sale than just the ‘sale’ section. Not the easiest website to navigate, but some good bargains to be had if you have the patience to explore. Reasonable reductions on Hunters wellies too.
