A nod to our traditional Chateau Parka, the Carson Parka has exterior quilted lines creating a more stylized aesthetic. It's mid-thigh length and removable coyote fur hood provide exceptional warmth for the cold in fall and winter months. The mother can bring the child from back to front for breastfeeding or for eliminatory functions without exposure to the elements.
Originally made with a sage green DuPont flight silk nylon outer and lining it was padded with a wool blanket type material until the mids when the padding was changed to polyester wadding making the jacket both lighter and warmer. The outer shell material also was changed to a sage green cotton-nylon blend, with respective percentages 80—20, 65—35, and 50—50 being used at various times. It gained the common name of "snorkel parka" because the hood can be zipped right up leaving only a small tunnel or snorkel for the wearer to look out of.
This is particularly effective in very cold, windy weather although it has the added liabilities of seriously limiting the field of vision and hearing. Earlier Vietnam-era hoods had genuine fur ruffs; later versions used synthetic furs.
The basic N-3B parka design was copied and sold to the civilian market by many manufacturers with varying degrees of quality and faithfulness to the original government specifications. Surplus military parkas are often available for relatively low prices online and in surplus stores ; they compare quite favorably with civilian extreme-cold parkas of all types due to their robust construction, designed for combat conditions, and warmth.
The s—s civilian version of the parka was made in many colors — navy blue, green, brown, black, maroon, grey, royal blue, sky blue and bright orange.
Most had an orange diamond quilted nylon lining, although a very small number did have alternative colored linings such as yellow, pale blue, and green. While still manufacturing parkas to the military standard, Alpha Industries have more recently [ when? In the late s the snorkel parka came to be associated in the UK with trainspotters , who would supposedly wear them, giving birth to the slang term there anorak. Following the end of the Second World War the US army recognized the need for a new cold weather combat system, resulting in four main styles of fishtail parka: The M stands for military, and the number is the year it was standardized.
The EX model was the first prototype or "experimental" precursor to all of them. The M then being the first actual production model fishtail parka after the pattern being standardized on December 24, The name fishtail comes from the fish tail extension at the back that could be folded up between the legs, much like a Knochensack , and fixed using snap connectors to add wind-proofing.
The fishtail was fixed at the front for warmth or folded away at the back to improve freedom of movement when needed. The EX parka is distinctive as it has a left sleeve pocket and is made of thin poplin, only the later production M parkas are made of the heavier sateen canvas type cotton. The EX also has a thin fibre glass based liner that is very light and warm, the M has a thicker wool pile liner with an integral hood liner made of wool. Both are distinguishable from any other type of parka by having the sleeve pocket.
This was dropped for the M onward. The M parka was costly to produce and therefore only in production for around one year. The pockets were wool lined both inside and out. The cuffs had two buttons for securing tightly around a wearer's wrist. The later more mass-produced M parka had just the one cuff button. The liner had a built in chest pocket which again was unique to the M parka. The next revision was the M, made because the M48 was so good and of such high quality it was just too expensive to mass-produce.
The outer hood of the M Fishtail Parka is integral to the parka shell, an added hood liner as well as a button in main liner make the M a versatile 3 piece parka. The idea behind this 3 part system was to enable a more customisable parka that allowed for easier cleaning of the shell as the hood fur was on the detachable hood liner, not fixed to the shell as in the M It also allowed for both liners to be buttoned in or our depending on the temperature and hence warmth required.
It was also cheaper than the M to mass-produce The early M was made of heavy sateen cotton, the same material as the M Later revisions of the M were poplin based. The later liners were also revised from the "heavy when wet" wool pile to a lighter woolen loop or frieze wool design that dried easier and were far lighter.
The frieze liners were constructed of mohair and were designed using a double loop system which repelled cold weather. The M fishtail parka has a detachable hood and was the last revision. The M fishtail parka first came into production in These parkas featured synthetic fur on the hoods after an outcry from the fur lobby.
