Introduced in the early 1950s by the U.S. Air Force, the N-3A commonly known as the "Snorkel Parka" due to its small opening when the hood is fully zipped. The parka was designed to withstand extremely cold environments and has undergone minor changes ever since.
This early example of the N-3(A) is constructed from a Custom produced fabric that authentically replicates the true colour and characteristics of the highly durable nylon material from that era.
Nylon 66 was invented by DuPont Co. Nylon 66 is more flame resistant and durable compared to other nylon fibers. Here at The Real McCoy’s, we have studied the original Mil-Spec formula to replicate its yarn, density and weave, a full original of the brand.
