Washable, crushable, high sun protection, classic look (depending on which design you go for), and sometimes a lifesaver!
There is a thin foam liner in the base that helps it float and has saved my head from many a scrape!, a neat wide lace that loops under your chin and round the back of your head keeps it in place in high winds (invaluable), which can be stowed away inside the hat when not needed! It's great for keeping your head cool in the summer and warm in the winter plus the wide brim keeps rain off your glasses and the suns glare to a minimum.
Being a Tilley hat owner is like joining a select club, each member is instantly recognised by their hat wherever they go by other Tilley owners, and usually a new friendship ensues!
One owner in America (works in a Zoo) has even had his eaten by an Elephant....... 3 times!, he later retrieved it each time (I don't have to tell you where from?), washed it, and continues to wear it!!
Here's a Preying Mantis wearing mine!!
There is a wide range to choose from, plus a great collection of other clothing items for the discerning traveler, the Tilley socks being a must have! I have walked many hundreds of miles in all terrains and have yet to have a single blister!!
They might not look like much, but trust me, these are a great piece of kit, 2 pairs saw me round the world in 8 months, washable in the sink every night, and they are dry and ready to go the next morning!
As I always say, “look after your feet, as without them......you can’t go anywhere!”
