The US Military Extreme Cold Weather Parka Type N-3B is an authentic high performance cold weather parka from the US military. These parkas are known around the world as the snorkle parka due to the ability to fully zip up the hood as shown here. Perfect for fighting the cold and gives you a unique style that is just as popular today as it was when these parkas were first issued.
The US Military Extreme Cold Weather Parka Type N-3B is an authentic US Air Force flight parka. These parkas were first deployed in the 1950s for issuance to soldiers, flight crew, and support teams working in extreme cold environments. With a rating of -60 degrees, these parkas kept these front line war fighters warm while on flights or servicing air planes in some of the harshest conditions in the world.
This parka has reached a wide level of distribution throughout the world mainly due to the commercial copies that have been produced. These commercial copies of the N-3B parka have been incredibly popular in the indie music scene, sports industry, and other entertainment arenas. We can see why this would be as these parkas have a very unique look that is not overtly military yet will cause those around you to take notice when you are wearing it. Where our parkas excel over the commercial versions is they are all original having been constructed to the full military specification.
