I wasn’t in the market for a new winter jacket, but these limited edition Star Wars inspired pieces are hard to pass on. The three jackets are officially licensed and made by Columbia, and are based on Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. There are limited quantities available and will go on sale December 8, just before the new Star Wars movie releases.
The three jackets are inspired by Han Solo, Leia Organa, and Luke Skywalker, and the collection is even named after the Rebel secret base found on Hoth. Columbia worked closely with Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media to “ensure that every detail on the jackets is authentic and true to the classic film.”
Stand fearless against both the Empire and the ice planet Hoth with the limited-edition Leia Organa Echo Base jacket. Inspired by Leia’s original costume featured in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, this versatile jacket and vest combination is crafted of a durable, water-resistant, cotton-blend fabric and insulated with Omni-Heat™ Reflective lining. With a vintage look, flattering feminine fit, and eye-catching details—including stowable hood, princess seam piping, and gusset sleeves—you’ll stay comfortable and confident whether you’re taking on the elements or staring down a Star Destroyer in a galaxy far, far away….
When cold weather hits, the limited-edition Han Solo Echo Base parka will keep you warmer than a hug from your favourite Wookiee. Crafted of durable water-resistant, cotton-blend fabric and insulated with Omni-Heat™ Reflective lining, it’s a lot like Han—rugged and durable on the outside, warm and full of surprises on the inside. Inspired by Han’s original Hoth jacket in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, the jacket features multiple closures, a leather Rebel patch, and quilted faux-fur trimmed hood to allow you to slip past bounty hunters incognito whether you’re on ice planet Hoth or closer to home.
The limited-edition Luke Skywalker Echo Base jacket will keep you warmer than a tauntaun while you take on the Empire. This durable cotton-blend, water-resistant jacket and vest combination with a stowable hood is inspired by Luke’s original Hoth costume in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and features Omni-Heat™ Reflective insulation to conserve body heat. You’ll stay warm and dry whether you’re patrolling an ice planet or getting ready for a duel with your father.
To commemorate the movie, only 1,980 jackets of each hero will be made available, with their own identifying number, too. Each jacket will run you roughly $500 CAD.
