Carefully crafted in an earthy colour palette of yellow, khaki, olive brown and black, the collection ensures protection against all weather climates when out exploring what nature has to offer.
Outerwear: The Barbour x and wander 3L is based on Barbour’s classic Bedale jacket design, first introduced in 1980.

The Barbour x and wander Insu is a technical longline hooded Barbour Border style introduced in a new ripstop fabric with fleece lining.
