“My Father, Roger Hadfield, has worn Tilley clothing from Tasmania to Croatia, from sojourns on tropical islands to canoe trips in the boreal forest, and in vehicles ranging from Model Ts, antique tractors and Rolls Royce Touring cars, to high-performance ski-boats, and vintage aircraft of many types. (And my mother, Eleanor, wears it too!)”

Fabric

    • Made from 100% hemp fabric that softens and fades over time but remains durable. It is the world's strongest natural fibre and does not require herbicides or pesticides in crop production. It is truly an environmentally friendly crop.
    • The fabrics of all Tilley Hats have been certified to block 98 percent of harmful UVA/UVB radiation and deliver an ultraviolet factor (UPF) of 50+, the maximum rating given.
    • You still need SPF 30 sunscreen and sunglasses with UV filters! Children especially need the UV filters in their sunglasses as non-filtering glasses will increase the size of their pupils, allowing even more of the damaging UV rays to enter. This often causes cataracts and retinal problems later in life and has happened in my (Alex Tilley's) own family.
    • Yes, Dorothy, there can be truth in advertising. For instance, although our Hats block 98% of UV rays, some rays COULD enter through the ventilation grommets.
    • We hand-sew each Hat using very strong thread; all seams are lock-stitched so they won't unravel. The brass is from Britain and is the best there is. All Hats are made with such care and dedication that one is as good as another. Your Tilley will be equal to that presented to a president or princess. ("Hi, Duke! How long have you had your Tilley?" could be an effective opener.)

Care

    • Wash it frequently or non-removable sweat stains will mar it and possibly rot it. Machine wash on delicate cycle separately or hand wash in cool water. Do not use bleach as it remains inside the Hat, slowly rotting it. Smooth and reshape the Hat by hand and set it out to air dry. When the Hat is dry, simply re-stretch it, as an American sailor showed us, by putting your knee in the crown, and pulling firmly on the opposite side.

    TH5

    Light weight, durable, good looking hat. I have bought six Tilley hats in three years, and the hemp hats serve me best foe comfort and sun protection.

    A bit disappointed

    I have a number of Tilley hats. Living and working on a farm in Australia the hat has to absorb a good deal of sweat. The hemp hat did this more effectively than the nylon ones I have. The hemp was certainly very comfortable to wear. However, the fabric started to rot around the eyelets. (I know I have acid sweat - my metal watch bands used to corrode.) I reported the fabric problem to Tilley and they replaced the hat. Full marks for that. Just something to bear in mind. Rod Hoare (Binda NSW, Australia)

    Great Skin Saver

    I recently had to visit my doctor to have a non-cancerous growth removed from my scalp. He informed me that the sun could in fact trigger this type of growth to turn into Melanoma. He saw my Tilley T3 sitting beside me and asked if it was a Tilley. I said yes, and he went on to say that I am wearing the best hat made for skin protection, and in fact he wears them as well. He, nor I, have a thick head of hair anymore so the hat is a necessity. So now you guys at Tilley can add "Doctor recommended" to you list of reasons why Tilley is the best hat in the world. I now own 9 Tilleys and I am sure I am not done collecting them yet! Keep up the good work!

    Fantastic Hat

    This is my second Tilley hat after purchasing the TWC4 Outback. This hat is lighter and breathes a bit better and is better suited for summertime and warm weather wear. I have been wearing it for about two weeks now and I'm totally happy with it in every way. It won't be my last Tilley hat purchase either. There are a few more I want to add to my rack :)

    Love this hat!

    I have three Tilley hats and the TH5 is my hands down favorite. Why ? Because the TH5 does something my other Tilleys don’t do, it breathes. During hot weather the nylon hats are like wearing a plastic bag on your head. The TH5 is so much cooler and more comfortable. I just wish they came in more colors. Please Mr. Tilley can we have a tan TH5? Tan is a very nice color for a hat and I promise I will buy one of the first as soon as they are for sale.

    Superb Quality

    This is a go anywhere hat. Most of the time mine is kept in my car to meet all eventualities such as the snow at the moment but it really came into its own on a Caribbean cruise earlier this year and a Baltic cruise in June. I wouldn't leave home without it!!

    Great all around hat

    Love the hat. I find myself wearing this hat most of the time out of all the Tilley hats I own. You won't be disappointed! It's a buy, buy, buy! IMO!

    What A Great Hat

    What a great ALL Purpose hat. It keeps your head dry, keeps the sun off your head, face, nose and ears and is extremely comfortable. It gets softer each time you wash it and is wonderfully floppy!

World's Best?

  • HERE'S WHY TILLEY HATS ARE ACKNOWLEDGED 'THE BEST IN THE WORLD.'

    APPEARANCE AND COMFORT:
    To protect you from the sun and rain, Tilleys fit lower than other hats. This also tends to give one a rather dashing appearance! For your comfort, they're held on by gravity, not painful pressure on your forehead. On a hot muggy day, you'll especially appreciate this!

    THE GUARANTEE:
    Your Hat is guaranteed for life (yours, mine or its) not to wear out or fall apart. We're delighted to think that yours may be passed on to the next generation!

    INSURED AGAINST LOSS:
    With your Hat, you'll be provided with "The Straight-Shooter's Statement of Loss of a Tilley Hat" insurance policy. The insurance is for two years, all perils, 50% deductible, and is not issued by Lloyds. We understand the anguish of losing this reliable companion, or of having your dog terminally gnaw it. Should that happen, we'll replace your late, lamented Tilley at half the current catalogue price.

    EXCELLENT SUN PROTECTION:
    The fabric of all Tilley Hats have been certified to block 98 percent of harmful UVA/UVB radiation and deliver an ultraviolet factor (UPF) of 50+, the maximum rating given. Yes, Dorothy, there can be truth in advertising. For instance, although our Hats block 98% of UV rays, some rays COULD enter through the ventilation grommets.

    GLARE PROTECTION:
    Many Hats have a dark underbrim to reduce glare from water, sand and pavement.

    REPELS RAIN:
    Not perfectly but usually quite adequately. The brim channels water away for improved foul-weather protection.

    FLOATS:
    A layer of closed-cell foam in the crown, and sometimes in the brim, provides the Tilley's positive buoyancy. This is a boon to boaters and fishermen/women/people. Good grief! People have told us that this foam layer has helped save their lives. Double your money back if it doesn't save yours. Apply personally....

    TIES ON:
    The Tilley comes with a tuckaway, adjustable, fore 'n' aft Wind Cord. When it's calm, the Wind Cord stays hidden in the crown. When there's a breeze, place the part with the sliding knots behind your head. When it's windy or you're sailing, use the chin part too. See the Owner's Manual, which accompanies each Hat, for amplification or visit our Facebook page to watch the Tilley Hat Wind Cord tutorial.

    WON'T SHRINK:
    After washing, smooth and reshape the Hat by hand and set it out to air dry. When the Hat is dry, simply re-stretch it, as an American sailor showed us, by putting your knee in the crown, and pulling firmly on the opposite side.

    4-PAGE OWNER'S MANUAL:
    You'll find it a good read. It's also available in Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Spanish. Please specify if it should be other than in English.

    HYDROFIL® ANTI-SWEAT BAND:
    Soft and comfortable, it picks up sweat from your forehead and wicks it away to your temple area where it evaporates.

    SECRET POCKET:
    Inside the crown is a good-sized pocket sealed with Velcro®. In it, carry your I.D., hotel key, $10 bill (in your case, a $20), plus 50¢ for an emergency phone call.

    BRAG TAGS:
    There are 8 of these in the Secret Pocket. You'll have fun with them; they can even get you into trouble, if you wish.

    UMPTEEN SIZES:
    Most hat makers make 4 or 5 sizes; we make 13, and even individual Hats beyond that size range when necessary. As a matter of principle, no one shall be deprived of the pleasure and privileges of Tilley Hat ownership simply because of an uncommon head size.

    BUT WHAT MAY BE MOST WONDERFUL OF ALL?
    Those who wear Tilleys usually have innate good taste, creative minds and uncommon intelligence. Everybody knows that! And the Hats serve to identify such people to each other - immediately. Because of these exceptional yet shared traits, virtually always, especially in foreign countries, Tilley wearers greet each other. Friendships have been formed because of the Hat, and that can be the nicest thing of all.
