Now you can bring your Star Wars fandom to the mountain thanks to a new line of snowboarding gear. And you won’t need a tauntaun to stay warm. Fans of the franchise and fresh powder can kit themselves out from head to toe in galaxy gear celebrating the original trilogy. There’s Boba Fett-themed camouflage and a dark side print, with Imperial ships cruising through a field of stars. The gear includes snow jackets, pants, mittens, and boots. There’s also snowboard decks to match both themes. It all goes on sale starting October 12, 2022 on the DC Shoes website. Just in time for the first (Kessel) runs of the season.
We can’t wait to see this Star Wars gear on the slopes. Some of the cool details include gorgeous artwork on the dark side board. Darth Vader and stormtroopers adorn the top while hands clutch a red lightsaber on the bottom. People who don’t snowboard but are obsessed with Boba Fett can pick up the camo hoodie, complete with a patch on the chest that looks like his armor’s blinking display.
If you lean more towards the light side, check out this fan-made snow gear. Now you don’t have to make your own Hoth pilot suit in order to cosplay on the mountain. We’re sure wearers of this gear will get tons of compliments and appreciative head nods while riding the chair lifts and cruising down the slopes. Star Wars fans are everywhere after all.
Heading to Hoth in your new Star Wars swag isn’t the only way to show off your fandom. There’s plenty of swag for all occasions. Stay indoors with some hot cocoa and build one of the many, many Star Wars LEGO sets. There’s even a Funko advent calendar for the upcoming season.
