We all know that British weather can be unpredictable - sunny one day and pouring with rain the next. During April  it’s easy to get caught out which is why we at AllWeathers suggest investing in a quality waterproof jacket that is suitable for the springtime.

One brand that always knows how to create great outdoor clothing is Barbour. This famous British heritage brand knows exactly how to design jackets suitable for the UK weather and there are lots of waterproof options available to keep you dry during the April showers.

So, let’s have a look at some of the Barbour waterproof jackets and interactive hoods we have here at Allweathers.

Barbour Waterproof Jackets

Barbour offer a waterproof jacket to suit everyone’s taste. The Barbour Men’s Bann Navy Waterproof Jacket is a popular choice since it’s made with a soft and waterproof outer fabric, designed to keep you dry, it’s also breathable. This is exactly what you need for April rain showers! In addition, the jacket features a hood that can be detached when the weather improves. There are two large pockets to keep small items safe and dry, as well as a stylish needle cord collar. If you like this Barbour jacket in navy then you will love the Barbour Men’s Bann Waterproof Jacket  in olive too.

For a shorter style, check out the Barbour Men’s Dee Waterproof Navy Jacket. This jacket features a modern short stand-up collar and a draw cord hem for a sporty style. There are also lots of pockets, including two hidden hand pockets, internal security pocket for valuables and two larger patch pockets on the outside of the jacket with classic Barbour branding on the pocket flap.

Another favourite jacket is the Barbour Women’s Barometer Waterproof Clover Jacket. Featuring a detachable hood, this jacket is lightweight and features a mid-length style and curved hem. There is also a draw cord waist so you can enjoy a more comfortable, fitted style, with two patch pockets and one internal pocket for your valuables. This Barbour Women’s Barometer Waterproof Jacket is also available in a number of stunning colours; navysignal orange and victoria blue - all gorgeous colours for springtime!

Sometimes the temperature can dip during April - after all, British weather is unpredictable. This is why we recommend the Barbour Women’s Epler Waterproof Breathable Seaweed Jacket. Designed to be a warmer outerwear piece, this jacket sports a hood that can be zipped off when the better weather comes along (it is coming we promise!), as well as a detachable faux-fur trim for when it’s warmer. The jacket features two handwarmer pockets, as well as one external chest pocket and two internal pockets. In addition, to the attractive seaweed colour, there is also a Barbour Women’s Epler Waterproof Breathable Jacket in a lovely mist design.

Barbour Interactive Hoods

If you already have a Barbour jacket and want to make sure you are prepared for the showers ahead, an interactive hood is what’s needed. Barbour interactive hoods attach to your jacket to provide you with protection from the wind and rain.

The Barbour Wax Storm Rustic Hood is manufactured from a durable 6oz waxed cotton and is designed oversized for added protection and enabling a hat to be worn comfortable underneath it. It has a quilted lining and there are draw cord adjusters for the perfect fit. This interactive hood will be compatible with pre-studded Barbour jackets and is available in blackolive and sage.

If you have a Barbour Thornproof jacket, such as the Bedale, Beaufort or Border, then check out the Barbour Waxed Cotton Hood. This is made of quality medium weight waxed cotton which will keep you nice and dry in the rain. It’s easy to attach to your jacket and the oversized design allows you to wear a hat underneath. There is also a brim wire for ensuring visibility.
