Named after a rural market town in North Yorkshire, the Barbour Bedale® Waxed Jacket was first introduced into the range in 1980. Designed by our Chairman Dame Margaret Barbour, this lightweight style was originally designed to cater to the equestrian market thanks to its shorter length that is ideal for riding.
Dame Margaret Barbour designed the Bedale® with equestrian practicalities in mind – with a shorter length, relaxed fit, rear vents and the essential Nylon inner 'drip-strip' that provided resistance to damp from horses seeping into the jacket. Made with medium weight 6oz waxed cotton and fully interactive with optional zip-in thermal liners and hoods, the Bedale® is a brilliant all-year-round jacket.
The popularity of the Bedale® has inspired a slimmed down version for women – the Beadnell, which is named after a small fishing village in Northumberland.
