While some prefer the shorter length and closed sleeves of the Barbour Bedale, I'm personally a fan of the Barbour Beaufort. While I actually do prefer the longer cut of the Beaufort, the real reason I prefer the Beaufort is due to the rear game pocket. I've found this pocket to be infinitely useful. While originally designed for the field, it is just as versatile in an urban setting.
During my weekday Metro commute, I use it to carry a variety of things- the latest issue of Garden & Gun, LSAT materials, a vest-if I need an additional layer, beverages and snacks-basically anything I could need. On the weekends, it is equally as useful- sneaking hooch into sporting/social events, carrying groceries or dog accessories- the game pocket really is the best thing about my Barbour.
