The Alliance Cold Weather Padded Vest was a light-colored, padded vest issued to Alliance to Restore the Republic members serving at Echo Base on the ice planet Hoth. The vest was part of the Alliance's cold-weather armor set.
Echo Base soldiers wore two versions of the vest. Those stationed inside the base typically wore a vest with a high padded collar, while those serving on the Hoth exterior wore a smaller, thicker vest without a collar that fit over their thermal flak jacket. Both versions of the vest could be adorned with the individual's rank insignia.
