How To Re-Wax Your Barbour

Do you need to re-wax your Barbour coat you might ask? Well the answer is more than likely yes after a period of time.  Obviously this only applies to Barbour wax jackets or other waxed jackets.  You will find that after a year or so of wearing your waxed Barbour that it doesn't seem as oily as usual and is starting to look a bit worn.  If so it's probably time to get out the pot of wax and re-proof it.  If you don't feel comfortable doing that, you could always send it off to Barbour who for a small charge will do it for you.  After all they are the professionals so this might be the preferred option.

The first signs of your coat needing to be re-waxed will be around the areas of wear and tear such as the elbows and under the arms where the arms rub against the body when you are walking.  This constant friction wears away the wax and creates a dry patch on the garment.  Re-proofing the jacket will give the jacket a new life.

This video below from blog shows the re-waxing process and will give you an insight into how it works.
