The SN-3B Parka is also known as the “snorkel” or “scrub snorkel” parka. Developed in the 1950’s for the military facing extreme cold. It was given the name because after it was fully zipped up in the front, the wearer had limited vision. Later, the design was sold to civilian manufacturers and in the 1970’s -1980’s was released in many different colors. Today, there are many variances to the original but the parka still remains popular for use in extreme cold weather conditions.
