The Rolls Royce of the outdoor/adventure hats!

A superb outdoor hat for every occation. "It floats, ties on (front and/or back), repels rain, blocks UV rays and won't shrink."

It is made of ten-ounce USA-treated cotton duck, best British brass hardware, hydrofilheadband for superb anti-sweat comfort.

Good solid hat. Protects from the sun and rain. Because of its construction you can stuff it anywhere. Chin strap keeps it one when the wind picks up. Washes easy.

Having said that, I now rarely use one. I find it takes up too much room in my pack and have gone over to layers of bandanas which weigh nothing. Plus I feel like a geek with it on. But that is a personal opinion. Looks good on bird watchers. Which is why I gave it to my Dad. (•:

I agree, it is ridicilously expensive for a hat, but this is not just a hat! This one really feels totally genuine and I really love this hat!

It offers good protection against sun, rain and wind and is the true adventure hat!

Bombproof !
Yes they are not cheap. They are very durable and provide great protection from the elements! Tilley hat's are guaranteed for life! I have had one replaced 3 times from wearing it out. Due to the fact I ware one five days a week about nine months of year for work,surveying. I also ware one on most outings in the mountains. It's a great piece of gear!

Tilley - best hat ever
Tilley hats are the best hats made. Who else guarantees their hats for life plus insures them for loss? For anyone spending anytime at all outdoors the UPF 50+ rating is an added bonus making it a healthy hat as well. They even have winter hats for those of us living in colder climates. If you are looking for an all round great hat, look no further than your nearest Tilley dealer.

Hands down best hat ever!
I have never encountered a company that has a replacement policy like Tilley. I have worn out 2 of the Hemp TH4s, returned them to Tilley with my forms and have received my new hat. I currently own 4 different Tilleys and swear by them for sun protection. My wife and I found a selection of their hats on sale at the Post Falls ID Cabelas and stocked up. Go to to see their wide selection of hats and clothes.
