The USA site is selling out quicker than the Canada site,  with the dark side version sizes M, L, XL and XXL the first to go. So far only the dark side XXL sold out on the Canada site. All sizes still available for the light side version (Canada site).

skywalker1973 , I noticed the same.  Seems like the Darkside is the more popular one.  The American's are going to start to buy from our side or they will just transfer the stock to the US side. The 2017 and 2018 jackets sold out right away.  This is first time it has been easy to get one. They must have made greater quantities of them. Hopefully sales will pick up in Canada or they will not allocate the same numbers of Jackets in the future to Canada.

Performance clothing is more expensive than a regular clothing because of the features, benefits and quality.  What you do miss when you get a limited edition Star Wars Columbia Jacket is the "sale" that would normally happen with this type of jacket.  The Jacket is $200 US or $259.99 CDN.  A good sale would put this jacket at $182 (30% off) and moving it to clearance would put it at 156 (40% off). 

In the past Columbia has sold out very quickly (within seconds) of these jackets and they were much more expensive jackets.  Last year it was the Empire Crew Jacket Replicas and they sold for $500 US and quickly sold out. Of course an original real one can go for $8000 US.  The first edition 2017 Hoth replica Jackets sold out within seconds and they went for $400 US. 

By the way the 2017 edition had a Han Solo Hoth Brown Jacket that was signed by Harrison Ford - they sold for $1980 ea.   Proceeds go to charity.

And this year the above Light Jacket can be purchased and signed by Mark Hamill for $900 ea.   Proceeds go to charity.   

On the USA Columbia web site, the Light version of this year's jacket has sold out on-line and only the XXS and XS versions of the dark side are still available .

I guess as limited edition collectibles I could maybe see the interest to pay a hefty mark up...but I would be wearing mine, and it isn't enough "star wars" for me.

If they had some really cool artwork on the back I may have been forced to grab one : )

congrats to those that scored it. they do look cool.

ambasah - look on eBay for the 2018 Empire Crew Hoth Jackets.  I think you may like those - I am thinking about getting one - I will be wearing it also -they are a little bit more Star Wars in your face with the Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars badging . It also has the CREW and Norwegian badging plus those bright orange stripes !!

Yes but will that prop allow you to walk into the first showing of the next Star Wars movie all nice and warm because you have a fantastic coat built for Hoth like conditions outside. And will that prop. make a statement to all your fellow Star Wars fans - that you are the ultimate Star Wars fan.   They will be so impressed that you will get a standing ovation.  Will your prop. back at your house get you that standing ovation.  I think not.  :)

Sounds like a great sales ad to me!

They sold out on the USA website a couple days ago but I see XXS and XS Dark Side as well as S and L Light Side are still available as of now on the Canada website.
