    The Apex builds upon our popular Altitude Parka. With an Oxford Nylon shell, nylon lining and poly fill, this parka delivers warmth and a sophisticated look. The oxygen tab pays homage to the military feature that allowed pilots to attach their masks. The snorkel hood is lined with faux mouton and trimmed with a removable faux fur lining.
    • Features Alpha’s signature zippered utility/pencil pocket on the sleeve with the red "Remove Before Flight" tag.
    • The parka has two lower flap pockets with snap closure, dual hand warmer pockets, a map pocket, and an interior pocket, all with zipper closures.
    • The Apex has an Alpha Triangle sleeve patch
    • Exterior storm flap with snap closure
    • Waist drawstring with push stoppers
    • Nylon diamond-quilted lining
    • Do not wash, dry clean only. Remove faux fur trim before dry cleaning. Do not bleach. Do not tumble dry. Do not iron.

    Product History

    The first N-3B jackets were produced in the 1950s for air crews who were assigned to transport troops in extremely cold climates. The parkas were originally made of a Dupont flight silk nylon outer shell and the lining padded with a wool blanket type material. The padding was changed to polyester wadding in the 1970s. The long jackets became known as the “Snorkel Parka” because the fur-trimmed hood could be zipped right up leaving only a small tunnel for the wearer to look out of. The modern N-3Bs have slant packets at the chest and flap pockets lower on the coat, and a panel that fastens with loops across the zipper to keep out wind. Most modern versions use synthetic fur around the hood. The N-3B was the first jacket Alpha Industries made for the U.S. government in XXX and we went on to produce it for the consumer market in XXX. Today we make several variations of the traditional N-3B.
