On Friday, Dec. 7, Columbia Sportswear will release the new Star Wars™: Empire Crew Parka, taking fans behind-the-scenes with a limited edition jacket inspired by the original worn by cast and crew in 1979 while filming the iconic scenes of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back on ice planet Hoth.

Star Wars™: Empire Crew Parka

Nearly 40 years ago in the frigid wilderness of Norway, a small group of cast and crew filmed several of the most recognizable scenes fromStar Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. They needed winter gear to keep them protected from sub-zero temperatures encountered on location. Their jacket featured a unique design that currently makes it one of the most sought-after items among Star Wars collectors. Now fans can go behind-the-scenes with Columbia’s limited edition Star Wars™: Empire Crew Parka.

The Star Wars™: Empire Crew Parka pays homage to even the smallest details of the original design while incorporating Columbia’s weather-defying technologies to help protect against the most extreme winter conditions.

As a kid, I had visited Disney multiple times and it sparked a passion for all things Disney. In 2010, I proposed to my wife in front of Cinderella's Castle an since then it has been a large part of our life. Now as a father and experiencing Disney with my wife through our daughters eyes, our love for Disney has grown tenfold and I can't wait to share my passion and experiences with you.
