“I had traveled in Italy from Rome to the Amalfi Coast, then Rome and north to Florence, Venice and Tuscany (total of 16 days) with 2 pieces of ‘carry on’ luggage (one tote and a 20" upright) due to 90% Tilley merchandise within. Your Spring 2009 catalogue was shot in Italy, so I brought a copy with me and had fun finding the locations and showing the catalogue and connecting with people in Positano.”

- Made from 100% Harris Tweed wool.
- Harris Tweed is the world's only commercially produced HANDWOVEN tweed, and is protected by an act of parliament. Authentic Harris Tweed carries the Orb certification mark, assuring that 100% pure new wool has been dyed, spun, handwoven and finished in the Outer Hebrides. We are priviledged to be working with Donald John Mackay, a renowned weaver based at Luskentyre on the west coast of Harris, and we fully support initiatives to preserve traditional handweaving in the Outer Hebrides.
- Harris Tweed is a truly versatile fabric, strong and naturally weatherproof. As many as 30 different colours are included in the yarns, producing a unique depth and complexity of colour, inspired by the natural environment of these remote islands.
- Tilley Winter Hats are made of fine quality wool. Although they may not shrink if you machine-wash, don’t take a chance: have them dry-cleaned because they are made mostly of wool.

These hats are amazing. They are comfortable, well made and fit really well.
I have seen a review that critisises them in the rain, well I'm sorry thats rubbish. I wouldn't argue that they are water proof because they are not but I wear mine in the rain with no problems. If I am out in heavy rain I wear something more appropriate like the Outback Hat, just like I wouldn't wear a cardigan in the rain.
I thought the Tilley wool hats were good but these up the game even more. Well done Tilley.

I've had one for more than two years but I don't wear it often because the rain soaks thru it in no time. Spraying with the recommended waterproofing does not help either......

More is better.
Thanks for the latest Harris Tweed hats. They are absolutely brilliant. I have added them to my other hats so the choice of what to wear each day as become a little harder.
HERE'S WHY TILLEY HATS ARE ACKNOWLEDGED 'THE BEST IN THE WORLD.'
APPEARANCE AND COMFORT:
The downward slope of the brim, both front and back, is intentional: the slope protects your forehead and the back of your neck from wind and snow as much as possible. The slope looks rather dashing, doesn't it?
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.
A FOREHEAD WARMER? AND EAR WARMERS?:
Some years ago, I went out for a walk on a cold, windy winter's day. The wind chill was memorable. After a short while my forehead was so painfully cold that I had to retreat home. Remembering the admonition that 'there's no such thing as bad weather, just bad gear,' I decided that a forehead warmer was necessary. That's why it's there, and I find I use it, and the ear warmers, fairly often.
FOR HEAT AND HARD KNOCKS:
Inside the secret pocket in the crown of the Hat is a thin layer of closed-cell insulating foam. Heat rises, and the foam stores some of it. This dense foam also softens accidental blows to the noggin. From time to time people tell us how the peculiar qualities of their Tilley Hats have probably saved their lives!
DON'T LOSE YOUR HAT:
The Hat has cotton/spandex knit tuck-away ear and forehead warmers that ‘hug’ your ears and forehead, providing staying power in high winds. Either way, your hat will stay where it belongs!
4-PAGE OWNER'S MANUAL:
I think you'll find it a good read. It's available in either English or French.
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.
FOR YOUR CONSTANT COMFORT:
Inside the Hat, you'll see at the back a removable Size-Equalization Device held in by Velcro®. Its purpose is to permit you to maintain the same comfortable size regardless of the ear warmers, or forehead warmer, being up or down.
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 50p for an emergency phone call.
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.
