Armadillo Hawk Raptor Long Sleeve Zip Top



  • MIL/LE ONLY


Hawk from the Raptor range uses a merino rib knit fabric for rapid heat and moisture transfer in summer while in the winter the honeycomb like structure traps air to give a buffer of warm air next to skin.

Hawk is designed with a figure hugging fit and is designed to be worn next-to-skin as a functional baselayer garment. The raglan sleeves provide seamless shoulders while the flat lock stitching allows layering without bulky seams. The generous cuffs keep the sleeves in place and the high neck zipper allows venting when required but also traps in warmth and protects the neck area against cold or abrasive outer layers.

The Hawk is a popular year around garment although most users are initially introduced to the style during their winter activities.

Easy Care Merino
In an ideal world your clothes would never need washing. We can't promise you that, but we can offer you the very next best thing. Your Armadillo resists the build up of odour so can be worn for longer without getting smelly (days, or even weeks, if you have to). And when you do finally have to wash it, nothing could be simpler.

Machine Washable
No need for high temperatures or special detergents because merino is self-cleaning in water and naturally releases dirt and odour even in a cool wash. Simply wash it at up to 40°C with all your other clothes using your usual detergent.

Quick Drying
Your lightweight Armadillo will line dry quickly. Or just leave it on a hanger overnight. If pushed for time, you can tumble dry on a low heat, but do so sparingly and you will prolong your garments life.

Who Likes Ironing?
After washing, merino recovers its shape without wrinkling. Even when folded up small for travel, it unpacks crease-free at the other end. So you should never need to iron it but if you want to, use the wool setting. It really is that easy to care for.

And Finally RIP
Treat it with respect and your trusty Armadillo will give you years of loyal service. And when the time finally comes to say goodbye, dont just throw it away. As a protein, merino fibre biodegrades in soil within 12 months, releasing valuable nutrients. Put it in the compost heap, use it as a weed suppressant or simply bury it. The natural cycle is complete.
