Back pain and stiff necks are caused by bad postures. When we travel on a plane or a train, seats curve in and have headrests that stick out. We slouch as our neck accommodates to the shape of the headrest.  

Pillion’s built-in neck pillow provides extra cushions over our shoulders so our head can naturally tilt backward instead of forward. This takes the tension off our back muscles, helps circulation and induces cozy sleep when we’re on the road. 

To sleep: Give 3 to 4 blows to inflate the hidden pillow under the hood. 

 To hide: Press for 2 seconds to deflate.

Warmtex is a special fabric that regulates body temperatures by interacting with human cells. We apply this to the eye mask, sleeve gloves and side pockets to provide extra warmth for cozy sleep.

Striking perfect balance between style and utility, Pilloon Jacket is a result of functions meeting fashion

It’s designed to boost the quality of our sleep during our journey. Only a true rest can get us sharp and ready for our next pursuit!  

Comprised of professionals in advanced garment technology, production and marketing, the AirOgo team is led by a fashion designer with over 10 years of experience in a renowned private label and she is shortlisted for the “40 under 40 in Asia” Design Star in 2010. The AirOgo Team is talented in designing fashion that accommodates to people’s needs and looks cool at the same time. Pilloon Jacket is versatile enough to meet challenges in different situations, and stylish enough to easily complement our work and sports outfit.  

The number “17831121” on the logo is to memorise the date the Montgolfier brothers created the hot air balloon, the first successful human-carrying flight technology. It was the first time people saw the overlook of the earth up in the sky, with a wider view and broader horizon. That is why we named the jacket “Pilloon,” the integration of the word “pillow” and “balloon.” 

We offer 7 sizes for men and 6 sizes for women. A unique offering from a bespoke fashion designer results in precious measurements and perfect fit even for orders online.  

 Five unique colors have been selected by AirOgo fans from the WGSN latest fashion trend forecast. It's effortless to look stylish. 

Risks and challenges

Every projects encounter challenges. The risk for a design project often lies in turning a concept into design, prototypes and final products. Our teams are industry professionals of different disciplines who have extensive knowledge in every steps of making fashion. We have already created our prototypes and gone through revisions. We are now ready for mass production!

The production process is often the reason for delay. We have close prior working relationship with the factory and we closely monitor the manufacturing of every jackets. The major risk that we foresee is the long Chinese New Year holiday in China. But realizing this potential risk at this early stage allows us to include important factors into our negotiation and communication with the factory.
