2016.015.002.10 - Alyeska Arctic Wear Parka, c. 1972-1975. Down parka designed and produced by the Woolrich Company for the Trans-Alaska Pipeline construction project. The outer shell is constructed with dark green heat and flame resistant nomex aramid fiber. The hood is trimmed with tawny coyote fur, and two cotton cords can be pulled to cinch the hood into a tunnel shape for protection against wind. The front of the parka has four flap patch pockets. Each pocket is secured with a single round green button. The lower pockets are 10.75” x 9” and the upper pockets are slightly smaller at 7.75” x 6.25”. The proper left top pocket also has a vertical button hole visible underneath the flap. A placket with five buttons covers a two way zipper closure. The top zipper slider has a brown leather pull attached. Olive green ribbed cuffs are sewn inside the sleeves and a rectangular brown leather patch is sewn on each elbow. Inside the parka, blue nylon lining is quilted over down insulation. A white and black rectangular label is sewn into the lining on the area of the upper back. A woven black border surrounds woven black text that reads, "ALYESKA / ARCTIC WEAR." Two small tags are sewn underneath this label. A size tag is attached at bottom center marked "L", and a tag sewn in a loop at the top right corner reads, "OUTER-SHELL-NOMEX ARAMID FIBER / LINING-100% Nylon / INSULATION-Down." There are two 8” x 6.5” interior pockets near the waistline with elastic at the top opening. A white rectangular plasticized label used for writing someone's name into the coat is sewn on the proper left interior pocket. A cotton cord is sewn into the coat to cinch the waist, and a strap with two metal rings is sewn onto the back of the parka to secure the hood down. This coat was issued to Jim Thompson after he completed safety training for the Trans-Alaska Pipeline construction project in 1975. He notes that the jacket was one piece of a set of issued clothing, including a secondary jacket worn inside the parka, insulated nomex pants with suspenders, boots with two sets of ½ inch felt liners, and wool socks. These clothes protected workers on the construction site from extreme cold temperatures, moisture, wind, and particularly for this pipeline project, fire.
