The Red Eye Hoodie was the first style we designed for Aviator. The idea was born from the need for a garment that had the style and function to take you from the plane, through your journey. A nice and easy pullover hoodie was a great place to start. By adjusting the hood shape we were able to create a hood that can double as a sleep mask. We added a mitten feature to whatwe call the "3 Way Cuff." This comes in handy when you need to stay warm or when you don't want to touch anything with your bare hands.
The Merino Wool jersey is perfect for anyone who wants to wear more and pack less. It can be worn for several days without ever needing to be washed. It's also incredibly soft and offers a more refined look and feel than cotton. Learn more in the Merino Magic tab below...
At Aviator, we source our merino wool from New Zealand because they maintain strict laws protecting their sheep and have banned the cruel practice of mulesing. New Zealand Merino's are treated ethically and are carefully sheered each spring.
Merino Wool is the Most Sustainable Fiber
Wool is a natural and renewable resource. As long as there is grass to eat, sheep will continue to produce it. When disposed of, wool naturally decomposes into the soil and slowly releases valuable nutrients back into the earth.
