    Product Details

    If you seek a military-style jacket that can protect you against the harshest of winter conditions, look no further than the N-2B flight jacket. Made especially for women, this short-waisted parka has a 100% water-resistant nylon shell and lining and is designed to withstand sub-freezing weather. Unique 'pass thru' front pockets were created so pilots would be able to reach into their pants pockets without subjecting their hands to sub-freezing temps. For extra protection, the hood is lined and trimmed with faux fur. This women’s jacket features a zip-down hood that lays flat against the shoulders.
    • The N-2B has Alpha’s signature zippered utility/pencil pocket on the left sleeve.
    • The water-resistant ladies parka features contrast nylon lining with a polyester fill.
    • Knit waistband and cuffs make this snorkel parka great protection against the elements.

    Product History

    The N-2B parka was introduced in the mid 1950s for U.S. Air Force air and ground crews. It replaced the N-2A. Alpha started making the N-2B for the DOD in 1963. Some of the classic mil-spec features were the front pass-through pockets (so that pilots could reach their pants pockets without being exposed to sub-freezing temps), split hood that unzips to lay flat, and the zippered utility/pencil pocket (originally called the cigarette/pencil pocket) with pencil point protectors. We went on to make the N-2B parka for the U.S. armed forces for the next 33 years. In the late 1980s we started making the same short-waist parka for the commercial market. It maintains the features from the military version.
