We'll admit to believing that Harley riders aren't likely to be huge Star Wars fans, but if your tastes manage to straddle the line between comic book fairs and biker bars, perhaps the Storm Trooper Motorcycle Suit ($1,150) should be in your stocking this year. Officially licensed, this amazing suit is made from form-molded leather, allowing it to replicate even small details of its on-screen counterpart, while built-in CE-approved body armor will keep you safe in case you swerve too quickly trying to maneuver around a restless Ewok.

Created as a one-off to celebrate the completion of a classic bike restoration, the TAD Street Fighter Jacket ($950) is a limited edition that's worth the extra cash. Made from fine American leather sourced from Horween Leather in Chicago, the Street Fighter features a zippered side hideaway pocket, a gusseted back for freedom of movement, two interior snap pockets for added storage, zippered cuffs, and antiqued brass zippers. As an added bonus, the leather will break in and develop a patina that's unique to you, quickly making it look like a well-worn partner in crime instead of something you just grabbed off the nearest mannequin.

If you live in a part of the world where winter isn't just a season but a challenge to be conquered, then you'll appreciate the Penfield Summit Parka ($320). Roughly equivalent to wearing a sleeping bag over your torso — but far better-looking — the down parka was first released in the 1970's and has remained a classic ever since. Available in five colors to the lazy general public, this custom-made "Race for the Summit" edition — in Uncrate-approved orange with coyote fur hood and special 70/30 fabric — can be yours if you're up to a challenge.
Penfield's Race for the Summit is an online game that takes you on a quest to win the one-off Summit parka seen above. The race will take you on a web trail, around some of Penfield's favorite sites — including Uncrate — in search of the answers to ten clues that will be released over four weeks starting today.
Most winter coats make it difficult — at best — to do more than lift your arms slightly above your hairy armpits. The Outlier Liberated Wool Peacoat ($650) overcomes this by combining a 2.5 layer wool softshell fabric — with yarn-dyed wool on the outside, fleece on the inside, and a wind- and weather-resistant polyurethane bond in the middle — and an innovative cut to allow for a wide range of motion, while providing the utmost in warmth and comfort. Added features include custom Corozo buttons, a high-buttoned collar, merino/nylon inner cuffs, and the ability to make you float in midair on dreary days.
Most good-looking wool coats aren't so great in the rain, and most raincoats aren't so good looking. The Nanamica Field Jacket ($1,200) bridges this gap with a wool-based Gore-Tex out and fully tapered seams that make it both breathable and waterproof, but also combine with the unique style — which includes a slash pocket, patch pockets, and an interior zip pocket — to create a garment that looks so good, you won't mind wearing it in sunny weather.
