Hey there, fashionistas! Are you looking for a way to stay warm this winter while still showing off your Disney side? Well then, I have great news for you! Columbia Sportswear and Star Wars are launching a new collection of jackets this week!
The upcoming Echo Base collection features three premium, limited edition jackets inspired by the three main characters from iconic film Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. Of course we’re talking about Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Princess Leia. Priced at $400, these high-performance jackets feature Columbia’s industry-leading technologies to ensure that they stand up to the freezing conditions on planet Hoth, or other galaxies closer to home.
The Echo Base collection will be available in limited quantities at 12:01am EST on December 8 at www.columbia.com/starwars. Columbia branded retail locations will also sell these intergalactic jackets when those stores open that day. To commemorate the 1980 release of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, only 1,980 jackets of each style in the broad Echo Base Collection were produced. These premium jackets are individually numbered and contain several references to Star Wars and the characters who wore them. The collection was inspired by the original costumes that are currently maintained at the Skywalker Ranch archives.
Han Solo Echo Base Parka: When cold weather hits, the limited-edition Han Solo™ Echo Base parka will keep you warmer than a hug from your favorite 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.
Luke Skywalke Echo Base Jacket: 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.
Leia Organa Echo Base Jacket: 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….
In addition to offering the three key styles, Columbia is partnering with Harrison Ford on an extremely limited run of brown parkas – the Han Solo Echo Base Archive Edition. Each of these parkas are hand-signed by Harrison Ford and will be only be available in select Columbia stores. And even better, this jackets help a good cause! 100% of the proceeds from these signed jackets will go to Conservation International, a global organization dedicated to protecting nature.
