Good Afternoon All,

It's been a while since I've posted on here, mostly because I've been quietly collecting a stash of jackets in my spare time and spending the rest of my life working.

Anyway, I recently acquired this parka and wondered if anyone had come across these previously or could offer any opinion on what it is. I understand the 'Flite Wear' made some NASA & test pilot jackets, but I haven't been able to find any information online about them producing N-3Bs. Aside from the zipper the jacket looks like a legit late 50s-early 60s USAF example, with the roundel and coyote fur trimming, so I'm not sure whether this is just old surplus stock re-purposed for the civilian market?
