PORTLAND, Oregon Columbia Sportswear has unveiled three limited-edition, high-performance jackets inspired by Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The collection represents the first movie merchandise collaboration for Columbia and will be available in very limited quantities on www.columbia.com and Columbia’s retail locations beginning December 9.
The high-performance jackets, featuring Columbia’s industry-leading technologies, take unique design inspiration from three main Rogue One characters: Sergeant Jyn Erso, Captain Cassian Andor, and the Imperial Death Trooper. Each jacket features special design details connected to the character and their allegiance in the film.
The Columbia team worked closely with Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media throughout this collaboration to ensure that the jackets are an authentic representation for discerning Star Wars fans. Constructed with Columbia’s Tested Tough promise and designed with a deep nod to characters in Rogue One and the overall Star Wars franchise, each jacket will stand up to the cold, wet weather of the winter season. Details on each jacket follow:
- Jyn Erso Rebel Jacket: Crafted of stretch twill cotton, Sergeant 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. The Jyn Erso™ Rebel Jacket sells for $400.
- Captain 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-Heat Reflective lining reflects body heat back to the wearer, and Omni-Tech waterproof breathable fabric keeps you dry and protected. Genuine leather debossed Rebel Alliance patch and premium fabrics pay tribute to this character. The Cassian Andor™ Rebel Parka sells for $500.
- Imperial Death Trooper Jacket: Waterproof, breathable and fully seam-sealed, the Imperial Death Trooper Rain Jacket is packed with the same features as Columbia’s award-winning OutDry Extreme Diamond Shell Jacket. Reflective Imperial Army shoulder details showcase 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. The Imperial Death Trooper™ Jacket sells for $450.
“We are extremely pleased to announce a first of its kind, outerwear collaboration with Lucasfilm,” said Joe Boyle, Senior VP of Columbia Brand Merchandising and Design. “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.”
