We took our durable cold-weather parka and created a version that's just for ladies.
The N-3B has a flight nylon shell with contrast orange nylon lining. The full-length storm flap, adjustable hood, and storm cuffs make this snorkel parka the perfect protection against the elements. The parka features four pockets along with Alpha's signature zippered utility/pencil pocket on the sleeve.

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 The parkas were originally made with a nylon outer shell and lining and a wool interlining.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.
