QOR Alpha Waxed Cotton Jacket

Style # 31057

Regular Price: $398.00

Special Price $98.50

280GM waxed cotton on the outside. Polartec® Alpha® insulation inside. Alpha® dries quickly, insulates when wet, and is very lightweight. Together, the waxed cotton and Alpha insulation make this a very warm jacket. And we sized it to accommodate a pretty hefty insulating layer beneath it. Double slide front zipper beneath a wind flap with hidden metal snaps. Subtle reflectivity, media port, loads of zippered pockets. Oh... it was awarded Polartec's APEX Award for innovation. We are proud of that. Imported. Nylon lining. Polyester fill. S to XXL. Recovery fit
Additional Information
  • This jacket is very warm and we sized it to accommodate a hefty midlayer underneath.
  • For added coverage, we made this jacket one inch longer (33 inches versus our standard 32 inch length).
  • The authentic waxed cotton outer layer is wind/water resistant and contains inherent subtle color and shading variations.
  • Polartec® Alpha® is a very high quality insulation that is compressible, stays warm when wet, allows air and water vapor to pass through it, and definitely delivers on the warmth-without-weight promise.
  • 80 GM Alpha® insulation in the body, 60 GM in the sleeves.
  • Open end, double slide front zipper.
  • Inside lining pocket with zipper.
  • Zippered chest and hand pockets.
  • Draw cord hem.
  • Double needle topstitching.
  • Center back straddle stitching.

Have been looking for a waxed cotton style jacket for ages and found this on sale. Fit and sizing is a little odd, but it works perfectly for me; I'll elaborate. I'm 6ft 165lbs and wear a medium in basically everything, but I went with the small and it fits beautifully. Sleeve length is good, torso is trim and its dead-on in the shoulders (I wear a 38r). If you've got a little more meat on your bones but you're about my height I'd suggest the medium. Craftsmanship looks great, zippers feel really smooth and nice, and I love the high collar and fleece lining.

Very nice jacket. It is summer now, so I will have to comment 6 months from now to make any kind of comments about how warm it is. But I love all of my QOR garments, so I'm sure I won't be disappointed when the winds start to blow and the lake-effect snows start to fly in Buffalo!

Is beautifully made with great attention to detail. I did not realize how great the fit would be, I'm a 40 regular and ordered the medium. Collar, cuffs, & fabric top notch with great attention to detail.
The Polartec lining leads me to believe it will be very warm in the waxed cotton show leads me to believe it will be extremely waterproof. Or at the very least water repellent. At this point at this it is somewhere in Idaho I will have to wait for the fall to see about my claims of warm and waterproof. I bought it on sale so it truly feels like a steal!

Jacket arrived terribly wrinkled. Took it to Today cleaners, they couldn't get the wrinkles out. You should ship this jacket flattened out.

Winter lingered here on the East this year and while I had been looking for a mid-weight city-wear jacket for awhile, I also thought I could stagger to the finish line, so to speak, and worry about this next season. But then two things collided.

First, I saw this jacket on someone else who was hoofing in to work and took the unusual step of interrupting him and complimenting him on the jacket. He responded quickly with the jacket's merits, which struck me. Not but 20 min. later I was on the website.

The second intervention was added punch on the back-end of this winter, of several late snowfalls, that changed my timing calculation.

With all that as preamble, I couldn't be happier with this purchase. Even apart from the ultimate life of this jacket, I have already gotten my rewards here.

So much to say about it, but one standout quality is how effective it is against the wind. The seal is perfect, and thus the warmth generated from within via the lining, the layers, is fully retained.

Pockets are sharp and well-placed. And the compliments on the look, the cut have been free-flowing, not that I was chasing them.

Lastly, all the attendant conversations in the course of this transaction were similarly well-crafted and spot-on. Could not have been better handled.

Very, very pleased here, and this from someone who almost never splurge- or impulse-buys (yet this was both).

I want to add one caveat to the glowing review I gave this jacket soon after it was purchased. I continue to appreciate its look and functionality, but I have found the zippers-especially the main zipper- to be too "sticky", to the point of being annoying at times. In this one respect the Barbour heavy brass zippers are much smoother in operation and more satisfyingly reliable.

As advertised. Very comfortable, with plenty pockets. Warm, really blocks the wind.

I really appreciate this waxed jacket. I currently own a Barbour Sapper jacket as well as an older Lewis Creek souped up version of the Barbour Beaufort, which gives me a special appreciation of the style as well as the functionality of the QOR Alpha. I find the Qor design sleeker and much more handsome. It's slightly longer than the Sapper which has a too high waist level draw cord thereby allowing too much cold air under the coat. The hem level draw cord of the Qor Alpha solves this problem. I wore the Qor Alpha in three degree Michigan weather with a cashmere zip cardigan and was surprisingly comfortable. I haven't put it to the full test as far as water repellency goes but for a six foot 195 pound man this jacket in size large has exceeded expectations!

I was looking for what I thought impossible to find in one garment; a rain jacket that could be worn over a blazer, but would work in casual clothes just as well. Something that had the style of a classic "adventure" motorcycle jacket but with an updated more modern look. This jacket fits it all. It's very well made, substantial fabric with a nice waxed texture. The construction is very nice, and the placement and look of the pockets is great. It's cut a little wide in the middle, but not too much. In short, I love this jacket, and can't wait for it to get a little cooler so I can actually wear it out.

This is a sweet jacket. It's warm, looks great, and I literally wear it everywhere--over a button down to the office, and over a hoodie on the weekends. Always get tons of compliments.
