Barbour nylon International jacket: A rip-off of a rip-off

I suppose if someone rips off your age-old design and then releases a lightweight version in a rainbow of colours, you have every right to do the same yourself.

It's just a shame that it took the success of Visvim's Alta jacket for Barbour to realise there is more to life than stinky wax (even though Visvim themselves released a wax version last year).

This new line of International jackets in lightweight Nylon for summer, owes more than a little to Visvim's Altas of last spring in terms of colouring.

All the same, Visvim's release (below) was crafted from Paclite Goretex. Barbour's is in nylon.

So they've got a bit to learn from those Japanese counterfeiters.
