Columbia Goes Rogue With ‘Star Wars’ Jackets

From a galaxy far, far away come three “very limited-edition” high-performance jackets by Columbia.

Star Wars Columbia jackets

We may not have lightsabers or hyperdrive, but on December 9th Columbia Sportswear gives us jackets fit for a Star Wars hero, heroine, or villain. The Star Wars-themed jackets accompany the latest franchise film, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

According to a press release from the brand, the jackets incorporate “industry-leading technologies” designed for cold, wet winter weather.

Rogue One: Columbia’s Star Wars Jackets

There are three jackets in the limited-edition line. Each is modeled after a character in the new film.

Jyn Erso Rebel Jacket ($400)

This steampunk-esque stretch twill cotton jacket sports a “leather-look.” It has an insulated vest that can be worn separately or layered with the jacket. There’s even a leather embossed Rebel Alliance patch.

Captain Cassian Andor Rebel Parka ($500)

This one’s fit for the frigid cold with a lined hood with detachable faux fur. The jacket uses Omni-Heat Reflective lining to reflect body heat, and Omni-Tech waterproof breathable fabric. This one also has the Rebel Alliance patch. Score one for the good guys!

Columbia Star Wars Cassian Jacket

Imperial Death Trooper Jacket ($450)

For those more attracted to the Dark Side, the Imperial Death Trooper Rain Jacket is a tricked out version of Columbia’s OutDry Extreme Diamond Shell Jacket. Inspired by the “Death Trooper’s imposing armor,” it has reflective Imperial Army shoulder details and “pop color chest zippers.”

We can’t all be buddies with a Wookiee, but these jackets are a decent consolation. As soon as we can get ahold of one for testing, we’ll see how it holds up to a blaster (or snow storm).
