Just in time for Rogue One, Western Chief has released a collection rain gear inspired by the dark side of the force.

Western Chief launched a new collection of Darth Vader rain gear for children on Monday to accompany their wide collection of licensed rain boots.

“We’ve had incredible success with our licensed boots and rain gear, and we’re excited to introduce this iconic character to Star Wars fans new and old,” said Karl Moehring, CEO Washington Shoe Company who own Western Chief. “It’s great to be able to make great quality boots available to families that we know kids and parents will love featuring their favorite characters.”

The Star Wars themed collection includes a Darth Vader raincoat with a partial mask and cape, coordinating printed rain boots, an child’s size umbrella and lighted rain boots, which flash with every step. Footwear is available in children’s sizes 8 to 1.

The collection retails for $18-$50. Products are available at Western Chief’s website and at select retailers including Nordstrom and Stride Rite.
