Originally the Caribou invented the parka or anorak. It was a type of coat with a hood, often lined with fur or faux fur. It was made from caribou or seal skin and served for hunting and kayaking in the frigid Arctic. Although used interchangeably, the words anorak and parka are somewhat different garments. An anorak is a waterproof, hooded, pull-over jacket without a front opening, and sometimes drawstrings at the waist and cuffs. A parka is a hip-length cold-weather coat, typically stuffed with down or very warm synthetic fiber, and with a fur-lined hood.

Amauti

Inuit women of the eastern Canadian arctic wear an amauti (also amaut or amautik, plural amautiit). Children under 2 years old nestle against the mother’s back in the amaut. This built-in baby pouch is just below the hood. The pouch is large and comfortable for the baby. The mother can bring the child from back to front for breast-feeding or for eliminatory functions without exposure to the elements.This traditional eastern Arctic Inuit parka, designed to keep the child warm and safe from frostbite, wind and cold, also helps to develop bonding between mother and child.

N-3B (“scrub snorkel” or “snorkel”) parka

The original snorkel parka was developed in the USA during the early 1950s for military use in extremely cold areas with temperatues down to −60 °F (−51 °C). In the 1980s Lord Anthony manufactured the civilian snorkel parka. This version existed in many colours – 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 coloured linings such as yellow, pale blue, and green. Whilst still manufacturing parkas to the military standard, Alpha Industries have more recently adopted the orange lining and a slimmer fit when producing their VF59 model parka which is now more popular than the military version.

There were many popular brands in addition to lots of unbranded versions, each having their own unique features. For instance the Campri/Campari branded ones had the pocket flap opening the opposite way around on the hand warmer pockets. Popular brands available were Lord Anthony, Campri, Campari, Wakefields, Keynote, Skyways, Brutus, Fosters, JonJo, Crossbow, and Milletts.

In the late 1980s 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.

In Europe the snorkel parka started to regain popularity in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

M-51 fishtail parka, a favorite among the mod subculture.

The fishtail parka was from the United States Army in 1950 during the Korean War. 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 EX-48, M-48, M-51 and the M-65. The M stands for military, and the number is the year it was standardized.

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 fishtail parka became a symbol of the mod subculture of the 1960s in UK. Because of their practicality, cheapness and availability from army surplus shops, the parka was seen as the ideal garment for fending off the elements and protecting smarter clothes underneath from grease and dirt when on the mod’s vehicle of choice, the scooter. Its place in popular culture was assured by newspaper pictures of parka-clad mods during the Bank Holiday riots of the 1960s.

Cagoule (raincoat)

A cagoule is the British English term for a lightweight, weatherproof anorak or parka, usually unlined and sometimes knee-length. It could be rolled up into a very compact package and carried in a bag or pocket. Noel Bibby of Peter Storm Ltd. invented in the early 1960s. It may have a full-zippered front opening, or pull over the head like an original anorak and close with snaps or a short zipper, has an integral hood, and elasticated or drawstring cuffs. In some versions, when rolled up, the hood doubles as a bag into which the rest of the coat is pushed. It became very popular in the United Kingdom during the 1970s.
