Find our in-depth review of the Pilloon Travel Jacket below and learn more about its quality, features, and shortcomings.
Designed to be the ultimate travel jacket, every aspect of the Pilloon travel jacket is carefully thought through. It is equipped with features that meet the needs of travelers and solve the problems they face.
It is versatile enough for any adventure and stylish enough to complement chic travel outfits. Its innovative design even won the 2019 iF Design Award and is nominated for the German Design Awards 2020. Here are the features that make the Pilloon stand out from other travel jackets:
Men’s Sizes: XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL, XXXL
Women’s Sizes: XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL
Materials: Gore-Tex, AirTex, and WarmTex
Color Options: Cosmic Black, Deep Sea Blue, Dusty Blue, Arctic White, and Himalayan Pink
Construction: The Pilloon jacket features a three-layer construction using high performance fabrics. The outer shell is Gore-Tex, which is impermeable to water, rain and wind. The hand-warming pocket, gloves, and eye mask are made of Warmtex, a special fabric with heat-generating properties to provide warmth and coziness. AirTex has millions of tiny pores that allow perspiration to escape but water can’t seep through giving the jacket its waterproof yet breathable properties.
Fit: The Pilloon is available in cuts and sizes for both men and women. It has a fitted cut that is fashionable but runs small. To determine what size to order, obtain your chest, waist, hips, and torso measurement and add 8cm to your torso length. If you’re in between sizes, round up and order the next size up. To have room for layering, it is also a good idea to order a size bigger.
Pockets: The Pilloon travel jacket has enough pockets to hold everything you need and want on your person. On the sides are two thermal pockets for keeping hands warm. Two safety pockets hold valuables such as passport, travel documents and electronics securely and easily accessible. Two large hidden pockets hold everything else you want to have with you. The pockets are well designed and positioned, concealed and have zipper closures.
Sleep Experience: Equipped with a built-in neck pillow, an eye mask built into the hood and gloves that extend from the sleeves, the Pilloon jacket is designed to provide the essentials for quality and comfortable sleep on the go: support, comfort, warmth, and darkness. The pillow blows up in two seconds to provide support and correct head position for sleeping when seated. Pull the eye mask from the hood and use the strings to adjust its fit so it blocks light completely. Slide the hand warming gloves out of the sleeves and close your eyes. You will sleep soundly and wake up well rested, not with sore muscles.
Protection from the Elements: Thanks to the three-layer construction and high-performance fabrics, the Pilloon travel jacket is ready for any situation you might encounter in your travels. A sudden downpour? No need to worry even if you don’t have your travel umbrella, as the Pilloon is completely waterproof. The fabric, zippers and seam tapes can withstand even the heaviest of downpours to keep you and your valuables dry. It is an excellent windbreaker and raincoat.
In case of spills, not even hot coffee will seep through or stain the jacket. In cold weather, the hand warming pockets and built-in gloves will keep you warm and cozy. When it is hot or you’re engaging in vigorous activities, the breathable AirTex fabric allows perspiration to escape keeping you cool, dry and comfortable.
Care: Maintenance is simple and straightforward, as the best travel jacket should be. No high-maintenance demands. It’s machine washable and doesn’t stain or wrinkle. Just throw it in the washing machine, rinse twice without using fabric softener, and tumble dry on medium heat. It dries fast and doesn’t need ironing.
