The Red Eye Hoodie was the very first style we designed. The idea was born from the need for a garment that had the style and function to take you from the plane and 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...

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.

I am a a wool fanatic! A large portion of my wardrobe is wool. I've experienced a lot of different qualities, fits, styles, functions. Let me tell you... This hoodie is beyond amaz... view moreing. The hand of the fabric is light, but soft and sturdy, you can tell it's a quality that won't fall apart or pill up with wear. The sleeves that are long enough to really and comfortably make use of the thumb holes in the cuffs. The hood is tall enough to have an elegant drape around your face, and deep enough to fit your whole head, even with a ponytail. The size guide gives an accurate representation of what size to order and how it will fit you. If I were to knit-pick I would say the center back length could use another 2 inches - but seriously the rest of the hoodie is soooo awesome, it's easy to overlook that part. I want one in each color! ...and I hope they make more different colors in the future! view less

The hoodie is not a light blocker. A small, semicircular lining in the front of the actual hood, serving as an eye-shade, covers too small an area to effectively block light. This ... view morespecial section requires precise placement and even then is not fully effective as a light block. I thought the hood itself would block the light. It misses the whole point of the hoodie being a sleep mask. I really don’t know what I’ve purchased besides a thin layer of clothing with an oversized hood. Having bought three because the potential light blocking function of the hood seemed brilliant, I should have saved my money. view less
