 AVIATOR TRAVEL JACKET FUNCTIONS

 AVIATOR TRAVEL JACKET

 HANDS-FREE HOODIE

BECAUSE...

- We were truly surprised to learn that there are no "travel" clothing brands making their products in the USA. 

- They say that it would cost too much to make jackets with tons of features in the USA because the American Factories are not set up properly. 

- We want to disrupt the logic behind this theory. We made our samples here and the outcome is top notch. Our factory is fired up for the opportunity to make such a high quality travel jacket. 

- We don't want you to pack another jacket for your next trip. The Aviator Travel Jacket will take you through your journey with function, comfort, and style.

AVIATOR TRAVEL JACKET DETAILS

 The Aviator Travel Jacket has a timeless design and a modern fit. The zippered pockets have inner earphone outlets and holders which keeps the wires free of snagging.  

 The Aviator Travel Jacket comes with an anti microbial hood that retracts back into the collar when not in use. Our Hood will double as a sleep mask while traveling. 

The Aviator 3 Way Cuff can be worn standard, fingerless (shown), or as a full mitten.

Never lose your keys with the our utility key clasp. The expandable band help you never have to take your keys off to open the door.

 Keep you passport, wallet, and cash in this zipper secure chest pocket. 

The microfiber cloth comes in handy to lean screens and glasses. 

The earphone placeholder is on both sides of the collar.

There are inner earphone outlets from all pockets.

ABOUT THE TWO HOODIE STYLES

 Our All Weather Fleece protects you from the elements: This technical fabric is designed to be weather proof (rain, snow, wind) making it perfect for any outdoor activity.  It has a smooth finish on the face and a micro polar fleece interior. This fabric breathes and will keep you incredibly warm during the cooler months without the bulk of a heavy jacket. The contrast cuffs and waistband are a lighter weight nylon fabric with extra stretch for comfort and performance. 

Our Cotton French Terry is designed with comfort first: Just like your favorite sweatshirt except with 3% stretch for added mobility. Not only is this fabric incredibly soft, it has remarkable durability. This 15oz brushed cotton fleece is knitted 1 mile from our Los Angeles factory. The waistband and cuffs are made from the same yarn but in a 1x1 rib for comfort and style.

OUR STORY

Aviator was born on Kickstarter 2.5 years ago with The Red Eye Hoodie. We have successfully launched 4 projects here with the help of thousands of incredible backers. Our goal is to move our successful Kickstarter products to our website  www.aviatorusa.com post Kickstarter, where we continue to sell our products at retail. 

COLOR OPTIONS

PROUDLY MADE IN THE USA

There are so many positives to making our products in the USA. The factory we use in Los Angeles has been in business for 20+ years and is one BIG happy family. It's no secrete why they make premium products for some of todays top brands. For me and the Aviator team, we find it extremely beneficial to have a direct relationship with every contractor who have a hand in making our products. We are in the factory everyday working side by side with the cutters, sewers, and finishers to insure everything is done properly. We know you will appreciate the Aviator difference of making things locally.
