Barbour Hunting Jacket With Diaper Pocket

Here's an awesome report from our man-from-London-in-Paris, DT reader Wesley:

I recently purchased a Barbour Beaufort jack [from Harrods but they have the same thing at Orvis.] Although I didn't know this at the time, the "game pocket" in the back makes an outstanding place to keep a couple of diapers and a package of wipes. It is certainly a great "upscale" alternative to the DadGear fleece jackets that seem to be popular. It's been great having it in Paris.
Wonderful jackets, those DadGears, but we know what you mean.

For folks who don't care to look like a refined City banker in the country, there are plenty of rougher jackets with game pockets--a compartment in the small of the back that passes all the way through, like a hoodie pocket, for stowing dead birds or whatever, I guess--that would do the same trick quite nicely.

I wear a barbour cowan commando jacket. even better pockets + epaulets.

"My friend" used to use that game pocket for shoplifting. It fits three "magazines".

now that's upscale!

The old fashioned Woolrich is nice, too (and lifetime guaranteed). And yes, when I was very, very poor, I discovered you could hold quite a lot of cheese in that pocket.

That's a wonderful idea! I have one of these in my closet that I haven't worn in awhile, so the thought never crossed my mind. Looks like it's time to take it out of the closet.
