The Gear Junkie: Star Wars Jackets

by Stephen Regenold

Columbia Sportswear nods at the upcoming release of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” with a limited run of winter jackets.

The outerwear was actually inspired by “The Empire Strikes Back,” but it coincides with the new film release this week.

Dubbed the Echo Base Collection, Columbia worked with Lucasfilm to replicate the look worn by characters on the fictional planet of Hoth.

The Han Solo Echo Base Parka, Leia Organa Echo Base Jacket, and Luke Skywalker Echo Base Jacket compose the line, each costing $400.
