Made in USA Cold Weather N-2B Parka Pilot, Bomber, Air Force Jacket
Condition: New with Tag
If you seek a military-style jacket that can protect you against the harshest of winter conditions, look no further than the N-2B flight jacket. This short waist parka is meant to withstand sub-freezing weather, with its 100% water repellent nylon shell and polyester interlining. Unique ‘pass through’ front pocket was created for pilots to have the ability to reach into their pants pockets without subjecting their hands to sub-freezing temps. For extra protection, the hood is lined and trimmed with synthetic mouton fur. This dry clean only N-2B parka features a zip-down hood, and knit cuffs/waistband.
• Our toasty N-2B parka offers serious protection against freezing temperatures with a synthetic fur hood, water repellent, 100% nylon shell and polyester interlining, in addition to the knit waistband and cuffs
• The N-2B flight jacket is versatile — unzip the hood so it lies flat against your shoulder and back if you are less cold
• This short waist parka is dry clean only and comes in: Chocolate, replica blue, navy, gunmetal gray, sage green and black
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.
