The N-3B Parka
The N-3B Parka was first made by Alpha in December 1959. The contract was either the first or second Department of Defense contract received by Alpha which had only been in existence since October 17, 1959. The parka was developed for crew personnel subjected to sub-freezing temperatures. The hood of the jacket had a mouton lining and coyote fur trim. Because of its weight and density, mouton is hands down the coziest, warmest fur you can buy. Even the harshest winter can’t cut through a mouton pelt and water tends to simply bead up on it.
Looking for a durable cold weather parka that's fashionable and our warmest yet? The USAF N-3B parka fits the bill. This Snorkel parka features reinforced elbow patches, a full-length storm flap and inset knit cuffs for durability and protection against the elements. The N-3B parka’s nylon outer shell/polyester interlining ensures that no cold air seeps in. Our hood is lined and trimmed with synthetic fur, complete with adjustable draw cord/take-up strap.
Available in Sage Green, Black, Gun Metal, Replica Blue, Navy.
