Inspired by our traditional N-2B short-waist parka, the N-2B 01N delivers superior warmth with an upgraded Oxford Nylon shell. The zip-front has a button and loop closure storm flap to keep the wind out and heat in. The adjustable snorkel hood is lined with faux mouton and trimmed with a removable faux fur.
- The water-resistant parka has 100% nylon lining and poly fill.
- The N-2B 01N has two snap-close slash pockets, a zippered interior pocket and Alpha’s signature zippered utility/pencil pocket on the sleeve.
- Features storm cuffs and button and loop throat closure.
- This men’s parka has a standard fit.
The N-2B parka was introduced in the mid 1950s for U.S. Air Force air and ground crews. It replaced the N-2A. Alpha started making the N-2B for the DOD in 1963. Some of the classic mil-spec features were the front pass-through pockets (so that pilots could reach their pants pockets without being exposed to sub-freezing temps), split hood that unzips to lay flat, and the zippered utility/pencil pocket (originally called the cigarette/pencil pocket) with pencil point protectors. We went on to make the N-2B parka for the U.S. armed forces for the next 33 years. In the late 1980s we started making the same short-waist parka for the commercial market. It maintains the features from the military version.
