The N-2B parka was introduced by Alpha Industries in the mid 1950s for U.S. Air Force air and ground crews. It replaced the N-2A. Alpha Industries started making the N-2B for the Department of Defence (DOD) in 1963.

Some of the classic mil-spec features were the front pass-through pockets (so that pilots could reach their pants pockets without being exposed to sub-freezing temps), split hood that unzips to lay flat, and the zippered utility/pencil pocket (originally called the cigarette/pencil pocket) with pencil point protectors. Alpha Industries went on to make the N-2B parka for the U.S. armed forces for the next 33 years. In the late 1980s Alpha Industries started making the same short-waist parka for the commercial market. It maintains the same features as the original military version.
