Columbia Sportswear recreates the Empire Strikes Back film crew parka


George Lucas had special parkas made for the Hoth film crew, presumably so he could tell the difference between who was supposed to be in front of the camera and who was supposed to be behind it. Columbia decided to recreate the parkas, including crew patches.

To see the originals, here's an unreleased documentary about the making of Empire. The parkas make an appearance around the 15:00 mark.
