Fans who were lucky enough to snag tickets for the premiere weekend of “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” can show up looking like characters straight out of the film thanks to a new, limited collection of jackets from Portland-based Columbia Sportswear.
The first-of-its-kind collaboration between Columbia and the film franchise has produced what looks like a pretty stylish trio of high-performance wear that does more than just stamp logos on a existing line.
Columbia says in a news release that the jackets will not only stand up to the cold and wet weather, but also the discerning taste of Star Wars geeks as they are an authentic representation of what is worn in the new spinoff film.
Here are details on the three jackets, as described by Columbia:
- Jyn Erso Rebel Jacket: Sgt. Jyn Erso’s jacket features rugged leather-look details on the sleeves and throughout the garment. The quilted, insulated vest can be worn separately or layered with the jacket to complete your rebel ensemble, and features genuine leather debossed Rebel Alliance patch. Price: $400.
- Capt. Cassian Andor Rebel Parka: Built to withstand the harshest conditions, Cassian’s parka features a sherpa lined hood, with detachable faux fur trim detail. Omni-Heatä Reflective lining reflects body heat back to the wearer, and Omni-Techä waterproof breathable fabric keeps you dry and protected. Genuine leather debossed Rebel Alliance patch and premium fabrics pay tribute to this character. Price: $500.
- Imperial Death Trooper Jacket: Waterproof, breathable and fully seam-sealed, with reflective Imperial Army shoulder details showcasing allegiance to the Dark Side, along with striking design lines and pop color chest zippers that take inspiration from the Death Trooper’s imposing armor. Price: $450.
“We are extremely pleased to announce a first of its kind, outerwear collaboration with Lucasfilm,” Joe Boyle, senior VP of Columbia brand merchandising and design, said in a statement. “Star Wars is arguably the most globally recognizable film franchise in the world, and presents us with an unparalleled opportunity to showcase our brand and premier technologies.”
The jackets will start showing up, in very limited quantities, on Columbia’s website and in select retail locations around the U.S. on Dec. 9. The Seattle Columbia store, at 290 Pine St., is one of the 12 locations which will carry the line.
“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” opens in theaters on Dec. 15. Check out more photos at Columbia’s “Rogue One” page.
