Columbia unveiled incredible ‘Star Wars’ coats inspired by ‘The Empire Strikes Back’

Remember that time Luke Skywalker got so cold on Hoth he had to carve out that poor Tauntaun’s guts and sleep inside its carcass just to stay warm.

Well, what if you could wear a coat similar to his?!?!?

That’s pretty much what clothing company Columbia is trying to do with the release of three new coats all inspired by Episode V of the original Star Wars trilogy.

Columbia has released limited quantities of a winter outerwear collection based on the classic gear worn by Han Solo, Princess Leia, and Luke Skywalker in the Empire Strikes Back film.

Last year Columbia sold a similar collection of outerwear based on the wardrobe of Rouge One: A Star Wars Story characters.  

This new Columbia Echo Base collection includes two jackets and a parka that looks warmer than Chewbacca’s fur. Each piece is waterproof and comes with Columbia’s Omni-Heat reflective fabric meant to conserve body heat. The gear is actually quite sleek and appealing, especially if you’ve always dreamed of wearing Rebel Alliance gear.   

The jackets include slight shoutouts to the series including the rebel alliance logo and patches that have quotes from the movie. The Echo Base collection will be available on Dec. 8 and will retail for about $400. 

Don’t get wrapped up like an AT-AT on Hoth and forget to save the day because there will only be 1,980 garments available.
