Columbia Sportswear Reveals Special-Edition Star WarsTM Collection Inspired by Boba FettTM Collection blends fandom and function with authentic Star Wars style made for the outdoors
Portland, Oregon – November 22, 2021 – Columbia Sportswear, in collaboration with Lucasfilm, is launching a special-edition collection inspired by Boba Fett, the most notorious bounty hunter in the Star Wars galaxy. These special-edition pieces feature intricate details honoring this legendary fan-favorite character and also possess the Columbia DNA of gear made for the outdoors. Available on Dec. 3, this collection is built for fans around the world to enjoy the outdoors in authentic Star Wars style while keeping them warm and protected against all the unpredictable elements the galaxy can throw their way.
These pieces will be available on columbia.com/StarWars starting at 12:01am EST on Dec. 3 and in-store at select Columbia-branded retail locations. (Store listings are online and listed below). This is the seventh time that Columbia has collaborated with Lucasfilm to build a distinct collection that honors the characters from the Star Wars saga in new and unexpected ways. Ranging in price from $40-$450 (US), the pieces include an array of outerwear and sportswear for men and women.
Columbia’s Boba Fett-inspired Collection incorporates rich, fan-friendly features with design cues reminiscent of Boba Fett’s armor alongside Columbia’s award-winning proprietary technologies. Built with subtle nods that true Star Wars fans will appreciate, the signature pieces in the collection offer active venting reminiscent of Boba Fett’s jetpack exhaust ports and other “easter eggs” throughout. The key piece also features the gold standard in warmth, a new insulation technology from Columbia released this fall called Omni-Heat Infinity.
The Columbia Boba Fett-inspired Collection features four styles:
The Boba Fett Interchange Jacket (MSRP $450) is a versatile 3-in-1 jacket that acts as armor against the elements. Crafted with both Star Wars fans and outdoor enthusiasts in mind, the jacket is available in both men’s and women’s sizes and silhouettes and features a sleek Omni- Tech waterproof shell.
o The comfy full-zip inner puffer can be worn separately or together and features Columbia’s new Omni-Heat Infinity thermal reflective lining for instant warmth and maximum breathability.
o Fan features include multiple design cues reminiscent of Boba Fett’s armor including a Mythosaur skull emblem and dash markings on the hood that mimic the same pattern found on Boba Fett’s helmet.
o Back ventilation in the shell is inspired by exhaust ports from Boba Fett’s jetpack and the comfort cuff design emulate the bounty hunter’s gloves and armor padding.
o The symbol featured on the chest remains shrouded in mystery, perhaps the vestige of an as-yet untold story
o A custom internal screen print and text is inspired by the original character synopsis from the Star Wars archives.
- The Boba Fett Hoodie (MSRP $120) rises to the occasion when temperatures drop. It’s constructed with a heavyweight cotton-blend and features a high-pile fleece lining and adjustable hood to provide comfort against the cold. Boba Fett-inspired details include dash markings on the hood and a signature emblem on the chest.
- The Boba Fett Tee (MSRP $50) is crafted with a comfortable yet durable heavyweight cotton- blend fabric that provides durability and comfort for whatever the day brings. It features an eye-catching graphic inspired by an early Boba Fett character sketch straight from the Star Wars archives.
- The Boba Fett Ball Cap (MSRP $40) is built to wear anywhere with water-resistant fabric construction and an up-leveled snapback closure. A Mythosaur emblem is featured on the front along with Boba Fett-inspired helmet dashes on the side.
