The father of the Air Force Snorkel Parka was the WWII Army Air Force B-11 Winter Parka in standard WWII Air Corps olive. Introduced in early 1944, it featured a lining of alpaca wool blend to help keep out the cold. We have replicated this classic style with the same weight and feel as the original, but with a great deal more intrinsic strength and wear-ability. The B11 made history when Chuck Yeager squeezed into his P51 in one and flew fighter escort missions in winter ’44.

  1. Great jacket amazing hood! Review by Tom

    Now that the season is over here are my thoughts on the B-11, I purchased this item last September when it was too warm to actually wear it but I had plenty of time to look it over and I did. I found the material and construction to be excellent I couldn’t find a blemish, bad seam or loose button anywhere on it.
    When the temps finally got cold enough to wear it you could go out with no problem in a business shirt until about 20 degrees, under that and you better have another layer. At a nice 12 degree day I went with a fleece layer underneath and could have stayed out for quite a while with no problem but regardless of how cold it got that amazing hood kept your neck and head warm, it’s totally impervious to the worst weather.
    The only complaint I have is the pockets are high up and hard to get your hands into but it is a military style coat and you know what the military says about pockets. “Get your hands out of your pockets!”
    Yes I would recommend it and was a little disappointed we had such a mild winter and only got the chance to wear it a few times.
