Good news! You don’t need to gut a tauntaun to stay warm this winter. Thanks to Columbia Sportwear, you can pick up a Star Wars jacket or parka inspired by the Echo Base sequence from The Empire Strikes Back.
The assortment includes Luke’s, Leia’s and Han’s Hoth gear coats. And apparently since Han’s coat is blue, does that put to rest the debate as to whether Harrison Ford wore a blue or brown parka in The Empire Strikes Back?
Here are the write ups from the Columbia site…
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.
The officially-licensed, limited-edition Luke Skywalker™ Echo Base Jacket will keep you warmer than a tauntaun while you take on the Empire.

You’ll stay warm and dry whether you’re patrolling an ice planet or getting ready for a duel with your father.
