|US Air Force N3B Arctic Parka
New and Unissued
Size Medium chest 37-41ins.
A superb cold weather parka
which was issued until the late 1980s and early 90s, its availability has reduced to the occasional item.
Unlike the very first version of this parka
which was issued in the 50s and was made from a shiny, nylon material, this model is made from a cotton based material and has a matt finish. It features a handwarmer pocket and covered deep pocket on each side, as well as a single sleeve pocket on the left arm. The hood is lined with a luxuriuos fleece
fabric and trimmed with a white fur-like material. The hood is also adjustable by means of a toggle at the rear. Closing is by means of a chunky metal zip which is then covered by a storm flap sceured by loop and button.
It has to be said that not only does this parka
look fantastic, it performs brilliantly in cold weather, as you would expect from an arctic parka
. Although well padded with insulation material, it is not heavy to wear like many of the old style parkas and coats.
Also, unlike the US fishtail parka
which is much bigger than its size label states, the N3B
size label is accurate.
A very classy and rare parka
Please note that there are many parkas being sold called N3B
, they are a cheap copy of this genuine and original item.
WE WILL ONLY SEND THIS ITEM TO A UK ADDRESS.
