Its the lining Vin. Either hand wash the inside using a decent detergent or send it off to one of those Barbour repair gaffs and have it cleaned or relined. Whatever you do dont wash/damage the outside. Years of re-proofing are priceless in these jackets.

Once done shower before every use and it should be right for years. ;)

Make friends with a tramp, bring him everywhere and everyone will think the smell is off him.

 

I thought you can send Barbour coats back to Barbour themselves and they fix any problems ?

Maybe stick in in the freezer in a plastic bag, might kill some of the smelly bacteria, Atb Joe

Clear the wax off using solvent and heat (hairdryer). Next srub with warm soapy water by hand. When dry, repeat wash. Make sure to wash the outer and inner. Dry out. If it still has a whiff then repeat washing. When there's no whiffy re-wax

Cheap mouth wash gets the stink out of by boots

It kills the bacteria that causes the smell

Try spraying the coat with mouth wash

Might work

If you have got a steam cleaner one of then little hand held units , give it a blast with that ... I have had some success with mine when I wanted to get the smell of piss off the concrete kitchen floor when I took the wooden flooring up :thumbs:

I've washed a wax coat in the washer on a cold wash and was fine. Also a fresh lemon squeezed in to a spray bottle with water and a little baking soda to spray in side the jacket

for whats worth vin,dump it in the bin, and get another .   there plenty about, ok i know it depends quality  of the coat, you can pay more money the  better the coat, but for what you do an need  one that water proof,  and keep out cold, there plenty of coats for £ 50 quid , if 2 coats a year , still cheap. i stopped getting expensive clothes  years back for going out with lurchers , it just not worth it, getting ripped etc , and as you smelling to fook, get couple cheaper coats in this brand  deff i got one , got mine telford  farming shop they sell everything you need there , there bound to have similar one up your way .  its called  TFM   if not in your area  ask them if they send you couple over , even with  pp   it still cheap .
