Vintage US Air Force N-3B Flight Jacket Parka Snorkel Patch Air Force 1961 Size XLarge

SPEC. M L-J-6279E

STOCK NO 8415-269-O421

Originally issued in 1958 by the United States Air Force, the N-3B, commonly known as the ‘snorkel parka’ due to a small opening when the hood is fully zipped, is one of the most recognizable military heavyweight parkas. Designed to offer warmth and protection in even the harshest cold weather environments, the garment has changed very little since its inception, a testament to its timeless design and functionality. It featured storm cuffs, two waist pockets, two chest pockets, reinforced elbow patches, a full-length storm flap, synthetic fur hood trim, a nylon outer shell, and polyester inner lining. Originally produced in an olive grey, the garment saw use throughout the second half of the twentieth century and remains reliable to this day.
