Geek Gifts: These ‘Empire Strikes Back’-Inspired Jackets Are Warmer Than a Tauntaun Carcass



It’s both wintertime and peak gift-buying season, so the folks over at Columbia sportswear have developed a mighty fine-looking line of Star Wars-inspired winter jackets sure to tickle any fan of a galaxy far far away.

Inspired by the rebel gear worn by Luke (Mark Hamill), Leia (Carrie Fisher) and Han Solo (Harrison Ford) while adventuring to the harsh Hoth winter in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, Columbia has designed a limited edition run called the Echo Base Collection. All three coats will be available starting at 12:01 a.m. EST on December 8, and will set you back about $400.

You’ll also need to be quick on the draw because Columbia is only producing 1,980 jackets of each style, in order to commemorate Empire Strikes Back’s 1980 release date. Jackets will be available online and in select stores in the US, Canada, Europe, China, Hong Kong, Japan and Korea. You can find more purchase details here and get the individual specs on each jacket style below.

“The officially-licensed, 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.”

“When cold weather hits, the officially-licensed, 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™ Thermal Reflective, it’s a lot like Han—rugged and durable on the outside, warm and full of surprises on the inside. Inspired by the original costume in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, the jacket features a faux-fur trimmed hood that allows you to slip past bounty hunters incognito whether you’re on the ice planet Hoth or a bit closer to home.”

“Stand fearless against both the Empire and the ice planet Hoth with the officially-licensed, limited-edition Leia Organa™ Echo Base Jacket. Crafted of durable, water-resistant, cotton-blend fabric and insulated with Omni-Heat™ Reflective, this versatile jacket and vest combination delivers a vintage look, feminine fit, and stylish details. Inspired by Leia’s Hoth costume in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, this rugged yet regal combo will help you lead with confidence whether you’re battling the elements or staring down a Star Destroyer.”

Thoughts on the accuracy and approvability of the Solo jacket?

Probably the same as the Hoth Leia one; nice for a fan, not for a Rebel Legion costume. Smile

These are very nice. Think people have already been putting them up on eBay for triple the price though...

Hmmm that’s some brave words, as a Tauntaun’s carcass is pretty damn warm.
