4 Cheaper Alternatives to a Barbour Wax Jacket

Barbour Wax Jacket Alternatives

I love the rain, and lately I’ve been enjoying this welcomed rainy break from all the hot weather we’ve been having. The thing about rain though, is in order to enjoy it you need to be prepared for it.
With all this recent summer rain, drizzle and clouds I’ve been thinking about how I have always wanted a wax Barbour jacket. Priced around the £200 price mark they’ve never quite been in my price range, which is why I’ve come up with these 4 cheaper alternatives that are all under £100.

The One

Barbour Kelsall Parka Jacket, £248.99

Waterproof, stylish, warm, versatile. You name it this jacket has got it. Its a signature staple and reminds me of growing up in 90s. If its out of your price range (like it is for me right now) you might enjoy these more affordable alternatives below. Buy here >>

The Preppy One

Jack Wills Alwyn Parka, £98.50

A more casual and preppier version of the Barbour jacket, this coat is a great length and is in a lovely camel colour that can be worn all year round. I think this parka would be a popular coat for all seasons. Buy here >>

The Super Affordable One

F&F Waxed Jacket, £35.00

I have to admit, this cheaper alternative from F&F at Tesco is a pretty amazing deal. It has a hood, has nice shape to it, isn’t too short and the colour is ideal for Fall. Overall the perfect coat for Autumn at a good price. Buy here >>

The Lightweight One

Oasis Lightweight Parka, £69.99

Sometimes you just want a parka jacket you can wear all year round and that is small and lightweight enough to roll up and shove in your handbag. If you’re looking for versatility, look no further. Buy here >>

The Fashionable One

River Island Parka Jacket, £100.00

This faux fur parka jacket is certainly for the more style conscious. Its a little too styled for me and not all that practical, but I’m sure this will be a popular coat in Autumn. Buy here >>
