    USAF N-3B parkas - Let's talk about them!!

    I have one of these USA civvy models and the "fur" lining the hood is as good as the old military parkas, and the "fur" ruff is probably the best looking synthetic fur I've ever seen, and the overall fit/design is accurate to the old military parkas. But you're quite right, the insulation in the...

    USAF N-3B parkas - Let's talk about them!!

    This is an excellent post and I commend it to everyone. Not that I was ever in the USAF or issued one, but yeah, the design of these things is weird and best worn over 10 other layers. Ironically, the N3 and N3A parkas were probably better than the N3B since the earlier designs had zippers that...

    USAF N-3B parkas - Let's talk about them!!

    My advice is to get the best you can since getting a cheap-o version first will be disappointing and will be a waste of money.

    Best Leather Gloves?

    What parka did legendary Dick Proenneke wear?

    With respect to everyone, the fact is that in any given decade there would have been dozens, perhaps hundreds of different parkas available for sale to civilians, so absent any clear badges or logos, or any specific historical information, high-res photos, or unique design features, it's nearly...

    BK Durable "The Wild One" One Star Double Rider

    In the other thread on the Wild One jacket we noted that photos more or less "prove" that the jacket worn by Brando in the movie had had the lining removed, which no doubt affected how it fit him and draped, and probably goes a long way to explaining by reproductions and even vintage finds never...
