Barbour wax jackets are renowned for being long-lasting and durable. People have seen their wax jackets through 100 years, passing down through generations.

The secret to making them last that long? Barbour Wax Thornproof Dressing. This wax dressing can be applied to either the whole garment, or just to patches that get the most wear, like elbows, creases, and pocket edges, and it will revive the jacket so it is able to continue being the premium product that it is.

Barbour Wax Thornproof Dressing is created using the same formula as the original wax put on jackets before they leave the factory. So, it’s the same wax that is originally on the jackets. The Barbour Thornproof Wax Dressing preserves both the fabric itself and revives the waterproofing qualities to ensure you stay dry when wearing it, even if you get caught in a shower!

Generally, your Barbour jacket should be re-waxed every year, depending on how often you wear your jacket and how you store it. Each re-waxing takes one or two tins of the 200ml Barbour Wax Thornproof Dressing, depending on the condition of your jacket.

To re-wax your jacket is a very easy process, there are instructions with the tin of Barbour Wax Thornproof Dressing, or you can read our handy blog which guides you through the process of re-waxing your jacket. As an alternative to doing it yourself, you can always send it back to Barbour for re-waxing and repairs! This does, however, come at a fee.

The Barbour Wax Thornproof Dressing is an easy way to elongate the life of your wax jacket and is quick to do in the comfort of your own home.
