These timeless glasses were first developed for US Air Force pilots under the name 'Flight Goggle 58'. The Original Pilot is still produced in Southbridge, Massachusetts, unchanged since 1958. Only technical improvements were made. Material and workmanship are of the highest quality. This makes the frame extremely durable. It can be easily adjusted to the respective face shape and nose. The hardened mineral glass is scratch-resistant, protects against UVA and UVB rays and makes the world brilliant. Bayonet brackets are ideal for helmet wearers such as motorcyclists or skiers and of course for all airplane and stroller pilots.

There are three sizes to choose from. The design is timeless. A palette of three frame colors – gold, silver and matt silver – make the choice large. So everyone can find exactly their model.

Size S: frame width 125mm, glass width 52mm, weight 38g 
Size M: frame width 132mm, glass width 55mm, weight 42g

Shipping to the EU

We ship parcels abroad with UPS. The total price including shipping, customs and VAT will be shown to you in the last step of the checkout process before you complete the purchase. All costs are already paid here in the shop, nothing is due upon receipt (DDP - Delivered Duty Paid).


You can return most items for a full refund within 14 days of delivery. Items must be returned in new condition (i.e. unworn, unwashed, with all tags etc.). We will pay for the return postage if the return is due to an error on our part (you received an incorrect or defective item, etc.).

You can expect to receive your refund within one to two weeks of the package being delivered to the Post Office/UPS, but in many cases it will be quicker. This includes the time it takes for us to receive your return from the carrier (1 to 3 working days), the time it takes for us to process your return once we receive it (1 working day), and the time it takes for your bank, credit card company, Postfinance, Twint, etc. to process our refund request (immediately up to 10 working days).

If you want to return an item, please indicate whether you want a refund or an exchange.

Availability in store

Most, but not all, of the items displayed in the web shop are in stock in our physical stores. Motorcycle clothing may be held in our off-site warehouse in winter due to space constraints, just as heavy knitwear, coats or autumn/winter hats may be held in our off-site warehouse in summer.

Single items and sale items are also often held in the off-site warehouse.

Red Wing and other footwear is stocked year round.

It is best to enquire about a specific item before visiting.
