First Nations Inuit Métis.
A parka or anorak is a type of coat with a hood , often lined with fur or faux fur. The Caribou Inuit invented this kind of garment, originally made from caribou or seal skin, for hunting and kayaking in the frigid Arctic. Some Inuit anoraks require regular coating with fish oil to retain their water resistance. The words anorak and parka have been used interchangeably, but they are somewhat different garments.
Strictly speaking, an anorak is a waterproof, hooded, pull-over jacket without a front opening, and sometimes drawstrings at the waist and cuffs, and a parka is a hip-length cold-weather coat, typically stuffed with down or very warm synthetic fiber , and with a fur-lined hood. The word anorak comes from the Greenlandic Kalaallisut word annoraaq. It did not appear in English until ; an early definition is "a beaded item worn by Greenland women or brides in the s". In the early s it was made from nylon , but changed to poplin by , when it was featured in Vogue magazine as a fashion item.
In , The Observer used the term to refer to the type of people who wore it and subsequently, in the United Kingdom, it is sometimes used as a mildly derogatory term. The word parka is derived from the Nenets language. The Inuit who speak Inuktitut use parkas and have various terms related to them as follows:. The amauti also amaut or amautik , plural amautiit  is the parka worn by Inuit women of the eastern area of Northern Canada. The pouch is large and comfortable for the baby.
The mother can bring the child from back to front for breastfeeding or for eliminatory functions without exposure to the elements. Originally made with a sage green DuPont flight silk nylon outer and lining it was padded with a wool blanket type material until the mids when the padding was changed to polyester wadding making the jacket both lighter and warmer.
The outer shell material also was changed to a sage green cotton-nylon blend, with respective percentages 80—20, 65—35, and 50—50 being used at various times. It gained the common name of "snorkel parka" because the hood can be zipped right up leaving only a small tunnel or snorkel for the wearer to look out of. This is particularly effective in very cold, windy weather although it has the added liabilities of seriously limiting the field of vision and hearing.
Earlier Vietnam-era hoods had genuine fur ruffs; later versions used synthetic furs. The basic N-3B parka design was copied and sold to the civilian market by many manufacturers with varying degrees of quality and faithfulness to the original government specifications.
Surplus military parkas are often available for relatively low prices online and in surplus stores ; they compare quite favorably with civilian extreme-cold parkas of all types due to their robust construction, designed for combat conditions, and warmth. The s—s civilian version of the parka was made in many colors — navy blue, green, brown, black, maroon, grey, royal blue, sky blue and bright orange. Most had an orange diamond quilted nylon lining, although a very small number did have alternative colored linings such as yellow, pale blue, and green.
While still manufacturing parkas to the military standard, Alpha Industries have more recently [ when? In the late s the snorkel parka came to be associated in the UK with trainspotters , who would supposedly wear them, giving birth to the slang term there anorak.
Following the end of the Second World War the US army recognized the need for a new cold weather combat system, resulting in four main styles of fishtail parka: The M stands for military, and the number is the year it was standardized. The EX model was the first prototype or "experimental" precursor to all of them.
The M then being the first actual production model fishtail parka after the pattern being standardized on December 24, The name fishtail comes from the fish tail extension at the back that could be folded up between the legs, much like a Knochensack , and fixed using snap connectors to add wind-proofing. The fishtail was fixed at the front for warmth or folded away at the back to improve freedom of movement when needed. The EX parka is distinctive as it has a left sleeve pocket and is made of thin poplin, only the later production M parkas are made of the heavier sateen canvas type cotton.
The EX also has a thin fibre glass based liner that is very light and warm, the M has a thicker wool pile liner with an integral hood liner made of wool. Both are distinguishable from any other type of parka by having the sleeve pocket.
This was dropped for the M onward. The M parka was costly to produce and therefore only in production for around one year. The pockets were wool lined both inside and out. The cuffs had two buttons for securing tightly around a wearer's wrist. This amount is subject to change until you make payment.
