Wasn’t sure what to expect but my order was delivered and packed perfectly. All the protective packaging was still intact throughout my item, even on the zippers as if I was the only person who had ever handled the item of clothing. Will definitely purchase from here again.
This is the most definitive Parka of such sublime quality that my 5 senses are completely overwhelmed!
Beautiful, flight nylon, designed for comfort to brave the elements.
The very best I've ever worn.
Well done Military Kit customer service. Please accept my 10 star award!
The usual fast, professional, helpful service that you always receive from this company.
I bought this Alpha Industries parka for my husbands birthday. He had one over twenty years ago and the quality has not changed at all. A really great all round parka, there is no better in cold weather. Helen also went the extra mile to ensure it arrived in time.
I just ordered Another Alpha N-3B from MilitaryKit and they never let me down, If you know the full history of the N-3B then you will know just how good these Parkas are and as I posted in an earlier review I have been wearing N-3B's since around 1974/75,
MilitaryKit has become my "Go To" Store, they just do it right every time, It's always a pleasure to shop with MilitaryKit and I have just placed another order for other things I need, As always it was a smooth process, Thanks Guys/Gal's.
Alpha Industries N3B Hooded Parka Gunmetal Grey
Very easy to use and follow web page/site with simple ordering process. The parka arrived much quicker than expected after ordering and was well packaged and was better than the images shown on the web site.
Excellent quality coat. Well made with dense fabrics. As other reviewers have said, the fit is big - so if in doubt go for the smaller size
Wanted an alternative to the Canada goose jackets, which are way too expensive. Found alpha nb-3 to be a good alternative, robust yet stylish. Sizing guide is accurate, though they are sized large so order lower size if you want a tighter fit. Customer service responsive and foods arrived in good time.
