In 1980, Barbour produced its first short, lightweight jacket, the Bedale. Originally designed for horseback riding, the Bedale is preferred by many Brits, from royalty to pop icons.
Dame Margaret Barbour designed the Bedale with equestrian practicality in mind: with a shorter length, a comfortable fit, rear vents and the essential internal nylon "drip strip" that provided moisture resistance from horses entering the jacket. Made from 6oz mid-weight waxed cotton and fully interactive with optional zippered thermal liners and hoods, the Bedale is a shining all-year-round jacket.
The classic elements of a Barbour jacket are all included, with a two-way brass ring zipper and studded "Stormfly" front, two large bellows pockets and two handwarmer pockets lined in moleskin and the traditional corduroy collar with studs for a hidden strip of throat.
Now a classic, practical and simple style of the Bedale remains popular with all ages.
The popularity of the Bedale has inspired a slimmer version for women: the Beadnell, named after a small fishing village in Northumberland.
