PHOTOS, VIDEO: Columbia Sportswear Reveals New Special-Edition Mickey Mouse “Have Ears, Will Travel” Collection Launching This Friday
Getting out and seeing the great outdoors can be pretty magical. But if you want to add a little Disney magic to your adventures, Columbia Sportswear and Disney have the perfect solution for you.
The two companies have collaborated on a new line of sportswear centered around the leader of the club that’s made for you and me: Mickey Mouse. Above, you can see highlights of the offerings for adults, while some of the offerings for kids can be seen below. Overall, the collection is perfect for the whole family.
There’s plenty of outfits here that are perfect for any occasion. As Columbia’s website describes: “This special-edition collection celebrates a true Disney original with gear designed for enjoying the outdoors on magical adventures near and far.”
And don’t worry, some of the offerings fold into packages featuring mouse ears for the Disney fan on the go!
One of the highlights of the collection is the Intertrainer Interchange Jacket, which, according to Columbia, is water and stain-repellent, features a zip-in and three-point interchange system that helps you add and remove layers to find just the right weight to keep you comfortable, and zips into a package with mouse ears!
Another highlight is the Ibex Jacket, which, according to Columbia, is waterproof, breathable, and vented, and features a drawcord adjustable hood.
And of course, there are pants to match, with Mickey appearing above the back pocket.
There are plenty of “cool” aspects to these items, as the website explains: “Fan features include custom screen prints, stowable ‘mouse ears,’ iconic colors, and Mickey silhouettes on everything from our sun-deflecting technology to heat-releasing air vents.”
Each item features an illustration of Mickey enjoying nature. Jeff Shelly, Disney’s Director of Character Art, explained: “I wanted to capture the wonder of exploration in nature.”
These items are as practical as they are stylish. From Columbia: “Some of our top technologies for staying cool, dry, and protected are featured in this collection to keep you and yours comfortable on extraordinary—and everyday—adventures.”
“From tracing paper to character sketches, the collection is inspired by the artistry of animation while also capturing the wonder of the outdoors.”
From shorts to jackets to t-shirts, this is a great collection for the outdoorsy Disney fan!
The collection launches Friday, January 10th at select Columbia Sportswear stores, including the shop at Disney Springs. For a full list of locations, be sure to check out Columbia’s website!
