    Dec 7, 2017, 1:26 PM - Columbia jackets????? #1

    Haven't seen any other threads about this, but....that came out of nowhere. Anyone else thinking about jumping on these things?

    The Luke looks pretty good to me, but the Han is probably more wearable day to day.

    I saw them. They look very cool (errr... warm). But not much use to me here in Florida.

    Can you see a price? On the Canadian site, there's nothing about pricing. I've been trying to guess where they'll come in at - regular Columbia coat plus...say....a hundred bucks for licensing?

    Its in the fine print below the email signup and clock. Limit 5 at $400 each

    I'm surprised a thread on these didn't appear a lot sooner.

    High quality and practical/functional Star Wars jackets is like a dream of mine. I'm so tempted to buy one but I just bought a nice new winter jacket last year, so it's hard to justify $400 for something I'll hardly wear.

    And they've limited production of each jacket to 1980.

    I saw this thread at work earlier... These are nice looking, functioning jackets, but I can't justify $400 for a jacket.. especially with Christmas coming in a few weeks

    Han Solo's jacket was brown, not blue.

    My last columbia jacket lasted me nearly a decade's worth of winters. So I counted it as an investment and bought the Rogue One Cassian jacket last year. Extremely warm and comfortable. You can spend $300-500 on one of their insulated jackets, so I didn't mind the price to have some more Star Wars in my day to day life. With that being said, they aren't screen accurate, so if that bothers you, I'd steer clear.

    There is a brown version available. Read that a couple days ago.

    If only it got colder longer here. We get a few days a year, maybe, where you could wear that thing. Too much to sit in a closet 360+ days a year

    It's a shame they feel the need to charge so much for something like this.
    Would love to get my niece the Leia coat, but that's just ridiculous.
    I never wish a business to struggle, but would love for these companies to get stuck with a few.
    Maybe then, the pricing would be appropriated and more fans could enjoy the offerings.

    I would say that these are more "inspired by" than anything else. It's a cool idea, but honestly I would want a dead on accurate (or nearly dead on replica) for that kind of money.

    Low end Columbia Ski Jackets where in the $200+ range in the 1980's,
    So while expensive, other current jacket makers can run into the thousands for even a wind breaker depending on the brand.

    The Rogue One jackets sold out in minutes last year as well. Such a joke they allow 5 jackets per person.

    These sold out in all 3 styles , all sizes in like 3 minutes last night online. So frustrating, I was in the process of buying a solo Parka in Large and it was sold out before I completed the transaction.

    The scalpers had had them up on eBay for $800 4 minutes after the sale started .

    Ridiculous.

    Oh gee, what a surprise /s

    This happens everytime. No one should be shocked by this. Glad they ignored doing any imperial-hoth themed jackets/items like all these companies ever do. These designers for products are quite literally fixated squarely on Rebel characters, vader and standard stormtrooper like 99% of the time despite the Hoth theme. Pathetic

    Yep, this was destined to be a gold mine for bots and scalpers (probably using bots) from the start.

    Don't feed into it by paying above retail for these on eBay.

    Yeah, $400CAD I might have bitten on the Solo, but $500CAD was silly for a fabric jacket. Shame.

    I might have been in for a Han Hoth at 150. Not at 400.

    They look great. $400 for a limited run, quality jacket isn't too far fetched.
