Description
This extreme cold weather parka is quite simply the warmest US military parkas worn by our soldiers. This N3B parka surplus is a rare find as we have never seen this cold weather parka released by the USAF.

Extreme Cold Weather Parka Features


This extreme cold weather parka is fully lined with a water-repellent exterior and this coat will keep you warm in the most extreme conditions. It features a drawstring adjustable lined hood with fur ruff and drawstring adjustable waist. This parka also features two breast double buttoned pockets and two front single pockets.

Our General Manager at Coleman’s wore this jacket in the USAF while stationed in Alaska and he can vouch for it. It keeps you warm in extremely low temperatures. When worn over other cold weather gear, it can protect you down to -14 degrees Fahrenheit. Its outer shell is 100% cotton and the fur is 60% modacrylic and 40% wool.

What size is large iam about 46 inch to 48 inch would only where a shirt or a light cardi with it would I need extra latge ?

I don't consider myself a 'fit' expert. Not sure if the 46 to 48 inches refers to your waist. Assuming it does I can say from my experience (I am 5 ft 4 in tall, weigh about 210, and have about a 42 to 44 inch waist) that the medium size I purchased for myself 'fits' with exception of being able to fully zip the snorkel hood. In hind sight I would have ordered a large. The jacket is very warm. I suspect you wouldn't need a light Cardigan. Just a shirt (I wear flannels) will do. In your case I am not sure if the extra 2 to 4 inches of girth would warrant going to an extra large. Keep in mind, the jacket has some weight to it. Not sure if the weight goes up appreciably when you go up in size (just something more to keep in mind).

Hi, what is the lining on this parka? My dad wants something he can slide on and off easily, preferably not felt or fleece.

The lining is not felt or fleece. It is nylon so it is very easy to donn and doff. It won’t get caught on anything else you are wearing. Also, I returned this parka to Coleman’s but it didn’t have anything to do with the lining. I was issued this parka back in 1987 when I was in the USAF. It was a very warm parka, so much so that I never had to layer under it. I used to work a lot outside back then both by my repair shop and dropping off and towing equipment from the flight line. The government has drastically changed the specs on their parkas since that time. The one I purchased from Coleman’s is nowhere near as bulky as what I used to have. Now you have to layer. I was greatly disappointed with the Coleman’s parka so I returned it the next day. While I had the Coleman’s parka my wife tried it on. She laughed at the thought of it being considered a “parka” and said it was more of a spring or fall jacket. Hope this helps.

Is the size running small?
