Barbour Keeperwear Quilt: A Review
J. Barbour & Sons rightfully has the reputation of producing the best quilted jackets available. (See overview here.) Recently they introduced another that is worth highlighting - the Keeperwear Quilt.
While designed for shooting, as evidenced by the shoulder patches, it is a marvelously practical garment for everyday wear. All Barbour's quilted jackets are surprisingly good at blocking cold winds in general and this in no exception.
It features sizable front pockets, an interior cell phone pocket, as well as back map pockets. Its length gives adequate coverage, and its knit cuffs prevent chilly winds from blowing up the arms. As with all Barbour garments, the hardware and construction are first rate.
