“My T3 hat was in a threadbare condition. As a university paleontologist I wore this hat for just over 30 years in arid desert conditions on every continent except South America. No doubt it was sweat that finally took its toll on the cotton. Still, it lasted beyond expectations and I wouldn’t have any other kind. Thank you for replacing it so quickly under your lifetime guarantee policy.”

    • 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.
    • We hand-sew each Hat using very strong thread; all seams are lock-stitched so they won't unravel. 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.)


    • Like its owner, your TH9 Tilley Hat requires a little care to look lovely for life.
    • Wash: Hand wash gently in warm water with mild soap. Do not use any fabric softener or bleach!
    • Dry: Gently wrap in towel to remove excess water. Smooth out any wrinkles and put it over a bowl that is turned upside down or stuff with tissue paper to maintain the shape of the crown. Let it dry with the brim turned down (like an umbrella).
    • Air Dry. When it is dry, shape it back by turning the edge of the brim up all around like it was when you first became enamoured with it.
    • Iron: Depending on your preference it may need a little touch up. If so, using the “cotton” temperature setting, iron the brim and crown area.
    • We are hopeful that you will enjoy the character your special Tilley begins to develop now and forever. Remember, it is guaranteed for life not to wear out.

    Great feminine hat!

    I'm a 44 year old woman, and I opted for the Natural color, and love it. This is my 3rd Tilley hat. I have the LTM3, and the charcoal winter hat. I wanted a more feminine look than my LTM3 as I do sport the messy short hair style. This hat is fantastic! I have Macular Dystrophy, so I need to protect my eyes. This hat does just that. You can wear it out on the town, or just when you go beaching. The added hat ribbons is a great accessory to change it up. Lightweight, cool on my head, and lots of compliments. Outstanding hat, and that is why I will never wear anything but a Tilley.

    Pros and Cons

    I bought the Natural colour because I live in the desert and didn't want to get too hot. I like it so much I want the Mocha too. Here are some thoughts on the hat after owning it for seven months and having used it in a number of environments. Positives: This hat is very feminine and stylish, it is great for sun coverage, it is so easy to travel with I just lay it flat in a suitcase or fold it and slip it in a shopping bag when I'm out, I always get compliments, it's not heavy, the strap works well in high winds. Negatives: It does wrinkle slightly but they can be ironed out, the large brim droops a bit in the front so you have to tilt the hat a little to keep it out of your eyes, though it still looks good tilted, the brim is a double layer of fabric making it firmer but the upper part of the hat is a single layer so it does not stay straight all the time, the pictures are a bit deceiving in that way. All said and done, I do love my hat and I would buy it again.

    Durable and nice looking

    I really love my TH9 - Mocha. We are strawberry farmers and I wear it every day of the hot prairie summer from May until September. It has faded in the sun, but still looks great. and it protects the skin on my face and neck. Our customers think its classy, and they notice where I am standing in the field.

    This is such a great hat, I was looking for something that was a little bit more feminine than my last hat and this was just the ticket...My husband and I are very active outdoors and I needed something that had a wide brim that provided extra coverage. An added bonus was the colored hat bands that came along. I love that you can change it up from time to tim.....Thanks for making such a great hat!!

    Beautiful hat!

    I just received this hat in the mail and I absolutely love it! My husband and I travel a great deal and this will be the perfect hat for style and sun protection. It is very feminine and versatile with the choice of hat bands for variety. I purchased the mocha but I might have to go back and purchase the natural, as well!

    It just arrived and already I'm in love with it! Why, why didn't I purchase both colours? It looks great, feels even better (even after taking it out of your travel suitcase - but why would you do that, when you can wear it:)). And I love the design, it looks so feminine! And I like the instructions too:)

World's Best?


    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!

    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!

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Soft and comfortable, it picks up sweat from your forehead and wicks it away to your temple area where it evaporates.

    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.

    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.

    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.
