Barbour waxed cotton is perfect for modern life and when properly looked after, can last for many years and plenty of adventures.

Wax for Life brings together three unique services. Our Barbour Repair & Re-wax service allows you to send in your beloved jacket for a re-wax to keep the rain away and mend any wear and tear that might occur. MyBarbour allows you to customise and build your very own Barbour Bedale, Beaufort or Beadnell jacket that is uniquely yours. Then, when the time comes for a new one, you can hand in your old waxed jacket in exchange for a £50 voucher with our Barbour Re-Loved programme (available at participating stores for a limited time).

How to Re-wax
Classic 6oz Wax

Our classic 6oz wax is extremely durable and is one of our oldest and most loved wax weights. Although hard-wearing, you can help your waxed jacket last even longer with re-waxing.

Step-by-step Guide

How to Re-wax
Lightweight 4 oz Wax

Lightweight wax is very resilient and retains wax extremely well, at around 75% of the weight of Barbour's classic waxed jackets. If re-waxing is required you can purchase a lightweight wax stick and follow our easy care guide.
