Choose a Barbour International quilted jacket – one of the most famous items from this iconic creator of motorcycle clothing – when you want trusted quality and a legacy of British traditional manufacture stretching back to the 1930s. After they were developed for the 1936 International Six Day Trials, these jackets became an item of obsession for fans and motor sports legends alike. Actor Steve McQueen is probably best known for an image of him atop a motorbike wearing a BI jacket. Today, something like a Barbour International polarquilt jacket might be made of far more advanced materials than anything available in the 1970s. But the tradition is still strong.
