These Jackets Will Keep You Warmer Than A Dead Tauntaun

Last year, Columbia released an extremely limited edition collection of winter jackets based on the costumes in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. They were pretty cool but these iconic outfits worn by Han Solo, Princess Leia, and Luke Skywalker in The Empire Strikes Back are beautiful.

Columbia’s Echo Base collection features two jackets and a parka inspired by the snowy weather gear seen at the beginning of Empire. They look like near-perfect replicas of the film’s actual costumes but streamlined ever so slightly to not look to Star Wars-ie.

Each jacket also comes lined with Columbia’s Omni-Heat reflective fabric which means if you ever find yourself on Hoth you won’t need to slaughter a Tauntaun to stay warm – and if you do you might be a Sith.

Hidden within each jacket are various Easter eggs and fun patches with quotes from the film. At $400 USD they aren’t an impulse buy but still reasonable for a winter jacket. The problem will be getting one fast enough. These coats will only be available in limited quantities when they go on sale in Columbia stores on December 8th at 12:01 in the morning.

There are only 1,980 of each of these bad boys available. May the force be with you.

For fans with deep pockets, there will also be 30 signed Han Solo brown jackets selling for $1980 USD. TEMPTED!
