Product Details

The Slimfit Cotton N-3B features a soft cotton shell that begs to be rubbed up against. This style combines one of our iconic designs, the Air Force N-3B parka, with our modern Slimfit silhouette and a rugged cotton exterior. The result is a beautiful parka style coat that protects against the harshest of elements. Deep snorkel hood surrounds your face with lush faux fur, while the front storm flap closes tight to keep in the heat.
  • Rugged blend of nylon and cotton outer shell with polyfill lining
  • Hood lined with synthetic mouton fur and trimmed with removable faux coyote fur. Includes adjustable take-up strap and drawcord.
  • Reinforced elbow patches for tear strength and design elements
  • Inset knit cuffs for added warmth and size adjustments
  • Full length front storm flap to help keep the rain and snow out

Product History

The first N-3B jackets were produced in the mid 1950s for USAF air crews who were assigned to transport troops in extremely cold climates. The parkas were originally made with a nylon outer shell and lining and a wool interlining. The interlining was changed to polyester batting in the 1970s. The long, sage green 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 pockets at the chest and flap pockets lower on the coat, and a panel that fastens with loops across the zipper to keep out wind. Today most use synthetic fur around the hood. The N-3B was the first jacket Alpha Industries made for the U.S. government in 1959 and we went on to produce it for the consumer market in the 1980s. In 1993 we introduced new colors including maroon, black and navy blue. Today we make several variations of the traditional N-3B.
