What is Barbour 4oz Wax?

Barbour is a British heritage brand, famous for its waxed cotton garments. Rain or shine, Barbour clothing always keeps you warm, cosy and dry against the elements. Barbour has now launched a new range of waxed cotton garments that are specially designed for the spring and autumn.

But what exactly is 4oz waxed cotton and what are its benefits? Let’s find out about the #BarbourWayofLife

The Barbour 4oz waxed cotton garments are designed carefully to ensure superior quality and a practical addition to your wardrobe. Made from American medium staple and Pima cotton fibre which has been spun into a yarn, it is then tightly woven on the latest high-speed air jet looms, assuring a strong and quality cotton fabric for your Barbour jacket. In addition, the fabric is dyed and finished by Hailey Stevensons in Dundee, Scotland.

Now let’s have a look at the benefits of wearing Barbour 4oz waxed cotton!


A Lightweight Fabric

Many waxed cotton jackets from Barbour are traditionally heavier for colder weather, made for the winter and bad weather. Yet, the new 4oz waxed cotton garments are designed to be around 75% lighter than the weight of the original waxed cotton, but with the same level of protection from the wind and rain. This makes it the perfect spring and autumn jacket for men and women, keeping you warm and dry, as well as being easy and comfortable to wear. In addition, all of the trims, zips and corduroy collar are designed to be lightweight too.

The Barbour Women’s Lightweight Beadnell Waxed Royal Navy Jacket is around 75 percent of the weight of the original waxed cotton, which means you can wear it when you are out exploring during the lighter months of the year. Of course, if it does rain when you are outdoors, the waxed cotton still offers you the same great protection from the elements. The sit-down collar and hand warmer pockets will also keep you warm when you need it.


Amazing Weather Protection

The main attraction to Barbour waxed cotton jackets is the protection they offer from the wind and rain. What’s more, the new 4oz waxed cotton garments use a newly created special blend of wax and oils for great protection, as well as a supple feel. You will find that the rain runs rights of your jacket and then it also provides a thick layer to stop you feeling the cold when it is windy outside. A new tin of wax has been specially designed for this waxed cotton so that you can enjoy amazing weather protection all year round.

For men, the Barbour Lightweight Ashby Waxed Archive Olive Jacket boasts this new 4oz waxed cotton and offers the perfect garment for hiking and going walking with the dog, whether it is raining or windy. In addition, it has a storm fly front with stud fastenings, as well as a stylish needlecord collar. There are even generous pockets to keep all of your essentials safe and dry outdoors. This is exactly what you need when you are out exploring and know that no matter what the weather is, you are going to stay dry and warm.


Reproof, Repair & Recycle

Barbour 4oz waxed cotton jackets are made from natural fabrics and can be reproofed, repaired and recycled. Doesn’t that sound great?


Built to Last

You can always rely on Barbour to make clothing suitable for the outdoors and this doesn’t change with the new 4oz waxed cotton garments. The material is tightly woven with a thread count of 120 ends per inch, which makes it very durable and able to withstand the elements of British weather year after year.

For example, the Barbour Men’s Lightweight Ogston Waxed Dark Sand Jacket is always on trend and designed to be a garment that will stand the test of time. It is made with 4oz waxed cotton, offering protection against the wind and rain, as well as being durable and long lasting. There are seven pockets to store all of your items on the go, with a self-coloured Barbour branding to the lower-left pocket flap. This Barbour jacket is just what you need to add to your wardrobe – the perfect spring/summer alternative to your classic Barbour waxed jacket for colder months.
