This vintage B-9 (or B9) olive parka is in excellent condition. With a mouton hood and quilted lining, it is certain to keep you warm in winter.
The B-9 was a three-quarters length-style parka, issued to aircrew personnel working in extremely cold conditions, like the low temperatures of open bomber planes at the time. As is often the case, there are no labels to precisely date this rare parka, but its style and details such as the zips used indicate that is from the mid 1940s - earlier parkas usually had a beaver fur hood without a split - and it has a superb WW2 vintage character.
