Get your Galactic Credits out for the next Star Wars and Columbia Sportwear partnership, after their successful Rogue One collection. Columbia Sportswear have unveiled three limited-edition jackets inspired by iconic characters in The Empire Strikes Back, and we’ve added them to our Fantha Tracks Christmas wish list.
The three jackets are influenced by the outfits worn by our 3 heroes Princess Leia, Han Solo and Luke Skywalker while in the Echo Base on Hoth.
If you are a Leia fan, the Leia Organa Echo base jacket is a must. It is a ladies fit jacket and vest combination and is not only waterproof but it is insulated with “Omni-Heat™ Reflective lining “ perfect for waiting for the Tauntauns to comeback from searching for Imperial Probe droids or maybe just going out for a walk to the park!
Luke Skywalker’s Echo Base-d Jacket is for budding Jedi and will protect you from the elements! Again it’s a water-resistant jacket and vest combination with a stowable hood with the same insulation to keep you warm while you wait for Han and Rogue Two to turn up!
For those scoundrels among you the Han Solo Echo Base Parka is essential to keep you warm. The Jacket is a parka style which is water-resistant, cotton-blend fabric and insulated with Omni-Heat™ Reflective lining it also features multiple closures, a leather Rebel patch, and quilted faux-fur trimmed hood. Columbia promises that it is “warm and full of surprises on the inside”
For Harrison Ford fans there’s even more exciting news as Columbia have produced an extremely limited run of the dark brown Han Solo Archive Edition parka. In partnership with Harrison Ford, Columbia endeavour to raise funds for Conservation International, a global organization dedicated to the protection of nature. Harrison has HAND-SIGNED each of these brown Han Solo Archive Edition parkas, and Columbia will donate 100% of the proceeds from their sale to Conservation International.
