The N-3B parka was originally designed for the U.S. Air Force in the mid 1950s to keep air crews warm in the extreme cold weather like Alaska. It became known as a ‘snorkel parka’ due to the way the hood zips up very high to keep the cold off the face.

    US Military N3B Parka

    I recently ordered a US Military N3B parka from Billings Army Navy Surplus Store. The parka arrived in perfect condition and will make a wonderful Christmas present for a veteran who wore one during military service in Korea back in the early 90s. Perfect for Wyoming's cold, windy winters!
