Designed to deal with some of the harshest climates, while maintaining the imposing image of the Imperial Stormtrooper, this armour provides protection from both hostiles and the elements. Adapted from the Clone Cold Assault Troopers armour, the heating and life support properties remain unchanged. The armour consists of a two-piece temperature controlling body glove, covered by an eighteen-piece outer shell and an airtight fabric over-suit, for additional protection from the cold.Similar to the Stormtrooper armour, this unit also housed the panel for climate control and power cell monitors. However, the main heating, power and communications units were located in the Backpack, with just the controls and monitors in the armour itself. When combined with the Snow Trooper Helmet and Backpack, a trooper could survive for many days in the otherwise deadly conditions, such as the wastelands of Hoth.
