Rated 5 out of 5 by sisterjude from I love it.. I have numerous gilets as I live in the country and they are just perfect for core warmth without restriction. This is my favourite, excellent quality and features. The outer layer is tough and doesn't snag like my down one. The colour aubergine is gorgeous and slighly shiny, it goes well with lilac, black, grey, creams white. greens browns dark blue, black etc. I chose the Calvary rather than the Wray because of the elasticated back for a feminine look although the Calvary has button features on the waist and a is flared. The two way zip to me is an essential and the high collar. There is a storm flap with press studs in addition so also a choice of closure. The inside polar fleece is so soft and it isn't bulky. Not too long 27 ins and as I am only 5 foot they can be too long but it just sits right at hip level and slightly longer at the back. I feel really attractive in it even walking the dog. Two deep pockets with press studs and two inside pockets. Not too bullky to put another jacket on if it is raining. You can wash it without needing to tumble dry it. Perfect! I absolutely love it and will be ordering one in Olive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LouiseB from Love the slanted pockets Bought this olive green gilet to compliment my Barbour waxed utility olive green jacket. Both look great together. Gilet is thin enough to go with the jacket without bulk but adds warmth. Great for the Scottish climate too.

Please could you tell me the length of gilet, cavalry size16/18. Thanks. Is Wray gilet same length?
Thanks for your question. We can confirm the back length measurement is approxmiately71cm for the size 16 and 72cm for the size 18. The Barbour Cavalry Gilet will be a similar length to the Barbour Wray Gilet (LGI0017).
