Description

The Parka is made of laminate material and has raglan style barrel sleeves with waterproof underarm ventilating pit zippers. It has a waterproof one-way front zipper concealed by a welt, a permanently attached roll up style hood design (that can be stowed in the collar).  The parka also contains two upper chest pockets with concealed water resistant slide fastener openings, two lower pockets with flaps, concealed hand warmer pockets, adjustable wrist tabs, and a rank/rate insignia tab on the outside.  Concealed inside the two lower pockets are adjustable waist draw cord closures with barrel locks and an inside hanger loop.  A name tape shall be worn on the left shoulder pocket flap of the NWU Type I Parka.  The wearer's surname will be embroidered in approximately three fourths of an inch block letters (ALL) on a NWU Type I matching pattern fabric strip approximately one and one fourth inch wide.  The name tape shall be sewn centered and flush on the left sleeve pocket flap, one fourth on an inch above the bottom of the flap.

 

Correct Wear 

Close zipper at least 3/4 of the way.  The Parka is authorized outer wear worn with the NWU.  It was designed to be worn with or without the detachable black fleece liner.  Puncturing, pinning, or sewing items to the Parka is not authorized, as this will degrade the Parka’s waterproof characteristics.

 

Black Fleece Liner

The 100% polyester, detachable Black Fleece Liner provides extra comfort and protection during extremely cold conditions.  The accompanied black fleece liner is the only liner authorized to be worn with the NWU.  The Black Fleece Liner is authorized to be worn as a stand alone outer garment.

When wearing as an optional outer garment, the fleece will be worn over the NWU shirt/blouse, zippered at least 3/4 of the way and must have a sewn on center chest tab.
