ALPHA ELYSE PARKA

  • Sale
  • Regular price $2,388.00


We've taken our popular women's N-3B and added some extra features to create an upgraded look. The flight nylon shell has a partial faux rabbit lining that goes from the waist to the hood. The snorkel hood has removable faux fur trim. The zip front has a button and loop closure storm flap with tortoiseshell buttons. Little details such as storm cuffs and leather accents are the perfect finishing touches.

PRODUCT HISTORY

The first N-3B jackets were produced in the mid-1950s for USAF aircrews 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 The parkas were originally made with a nylon outer shell and lining and a wool interlining.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 the wind.
