Morning Chris my friend,

Although both were referred to as "heavy weight waxed cotton" I know that for some time (early 1980's I seem to recall) Barbour were using heavier weight material for the Solway zipper. The ones before the 'round' zipper pull were heavier still.

By the way a question chaps as I read here so much about the thicker quality of a Solway Zipper. Is the Solway in sage green in any way thicker than a Border?
The Solway and the moorland were in a heavier weight material. Both being made from the same material. The Northumbria was also in a heavier waxed cotton complete with a wool liner rather than cotton. The waxed cotton outer was different to the Solway material though. The Border was the lightweight Northumbria with a lighter waxed cotton and lighter cotton liner.
