Inspired by the nature of country living and designed with style, functionality and longevity at the forefront, our collection of children’s jackets are guaranteed to become your child’s new outerwear must-have. 

The Best Children’s Waterproof Wax Jackets

Every child should own a reliable, waterproof jacket that is versatile enough to wear throughout all seasons and our children’s waxed jackets provide exactly that. A lightweight, weatherproof wax jacket is ideal for throwing on over school uniform or casual weekend attire, to keep your child protected against the elements. Easy-to-wear, comfortable and stylish, Barbour wax jackets are ideal for a child who loves the outdoors.

The best-selling Barbour Bedale wax jacket has been reimagined to create a version for children - the Barbour Boys Bedale Waxed Jacket. Featuring the same classic wax jacket silhouette, this jacket has the same waxed cotton outer layer, stylish cord collar and front pockets as its adult counterpart, making it a timeless outerwear addition to any child’s wardrobe. Made from 100% cotton and sylkoil wax, with a “stormfly” front, this jacket is perfect for the outdoorsy child who needs to stay protected against all weathers with an optional hood element, for a fully functional and versatile option. 

Another alternative to the classic wax jacket is the Barbour Boys Hooded Beaufort Wax Jacket. Again, a resized version of the adult Beaufort Wax Jacket, this features the same waterproof style and tartan-lined hood. Featuring unique, hand-warming pockets and practical lower pockets fully lined with a baffle quilt, this breathable and comfortable jacket is perfect for keeping your child prepared for the outdoors no matter the weather.

For girls, the Barbour Girls Cassley Wax Jacket offers the classic 100% waxed cotton outer layer for breathability and flexibility, with functional lower pockets, a storm-front closure and practical hood.

Available in both olive and navy, with a unique drawstring waist tie and floral lining, this wax jacket is not only stylish but is perfect as an additional outer-layer for all seasons too.

The Best Children’s Parka Coats

A parka coat is an outerwear item that simply never goes out of style and is sure to stay that way for years to come. With its defining long-line fit, thick quilted lining and large faux fur-trim hood, our children’s parka coats are perfect for those long country walks or school runs on colder weather days, keeping your child both warm and dry.

Designed using lightweight yet warm quilted lining, the Barbour Dalbigh Parka Quilted Jacket is perfect for keeping your child warm whilst allowing them space to move freely and explore without the heavy weight of a coat. Featuring hand-warming pockets, two lower pockets and an elasticated inner, this parka fits the needs of each individual child perfectly. With signature tartan lining, faux fur hood and country-inspired sage green or classic black outer colour, this parka offers a timeless coat style that will see your child through all weathers.

The Barbour Girls Belgrave Jacket offers the classic Parka coat style, with a faux fur-trim hood and long-line fit, but is coupled with a unique elasticated waistband offering a feminine silhouette. This added elasticated waistband also allows for flexible range of movement when worn, perfect for your little one who loves playing and exploring outdoors to keep them protected and warm in all conditions. Available in a quintessential navy colour with a floral inner-lining, this parka coat can be worn with almost any outfit.

The Best Children’s Gilets

For days where your child needs an extra layer but a coat is too much, a gilet is the perfect choice for providing that little bit more warmth when it’s in-between temperatures outside. Available in a variety of colours, styles and materials, our children’s gilets are the perfect piece for transitioning seasons, specifically during back-to-school season, as an added layer of warmth and comfort atop of a uniform.

Our Barbour Girls Rafaela Gilet features a long-line, chevron-quilted style in a shiny, 100% polyester material for a warm, weather-resistant layer.

For a more lightweight option, the Barbour Boys Liddesdale Gilet is ideal for kids on the go, featuring a classic quilted, box lining and simple snap fastening. This gilet is ideal for layering under more heavyweight coats and jackets for those extra-cold days when one outer layer simply isn’t enough.
