Wax jackets are worth their weight in gold this time of year. Not only do they work wonders at protecting you from the elements, they're a timeless fashion piece. One of our favourite brands for wax jackets is, of course, Barbour, so much so we have hand-picked the best Barbour jackets to last you a lifetime. 

Topping our list is Barbour's Beaufort jacket, which is arguable the brand's most well-known coat – it scored a perfect 5 stars in our Barbour coats review when tested by our fashion writer. 

Kate Middleton is among a list of famous names seen regularly wearing the Barbour jackets out and about – in April last year, she stepped out in a jacket from Alexa Chung's Barbour collection. And before, in 2021, was seen in a Longshore Barbour jacket design while land surfing with Prince William at St Andrews. Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was also regularly pictured in Barbour coats.

Last year the Barbour Beaufort celebrated its 40th anniversary, which is testament to the jacket's quality and popularity. Today we were excited to see the Barbour Beaufort jacket reduced by 30% at Outdoor & Country, taking it from £300, to a much more affordable £210. 

Womanandhome fashion writer Amelia Yeomans says: "This particular jacket has been around for over 40 years, and its popularity shows no signs of dwindling. It feels light but still retains enough warmth to wear alone during transitional weather, making it an ideal layering piece too. 

"The huge pockets mean that you can carry plenty around with you, which is why it would be my top pick for dog walking attire or hikes when it's raining. Offering protection from the elements with a cooler look than your standard cagoule, this has to be one of the best waterproof jackets in terms of trend appeal and quality."
