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!
Even though they fit gently, Tilleys won't fly off because when there's a breeze, you use one or both parts of the tuckaway Wind Cord (see TIES ON below).
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:
The insurance is for two years, all perils, 50% deductible.
A layer of closed-cell foam in the crown, and sometimes in the brim, provides the Tilley's positive buoyancy.
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.
Not perfectly but usually quite adequately. Happily, the brims of the cotton-duck Tilleys actually become stiffer when they get wet, not floppier, helping to protect your neck, face and glasses.
The Lighterweight Nylamtium® Tilleys are excellent at repelling rain.
SECRET POCKET: ( shhhhh!)
Inside the crown is a good-sized pocket sealed with Velcro®. In it, carry your I.D., hotel key, license, £10 note (in your case a 20)...toilet paper!...
Sweatband fabric, TRANSPOR® DRY LAYER offers superior moisture control technology. Perspiration slides through the inner layer to the outer wicking layer of the fabric where it spreads and evaporates. It will keep you cool and dry in the heat.
CERTIFIED SUN PROTECTION:
The fabric and style 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.
Certified Sun Protective Hat
Like footwear, your Tilley Hat must be sized properly. To find your hat size, use a tape measure and draw it right around your head, just above the eyebrows. If you give us the measurement (inches or centimetres) , we’ll give you the right size. Or refer to the Tilley Hat Sizing Chart for an easy reference to your Tilley Hat size.
HOW TO MEASURE YOUR HEAD:
As mentioned above, a Tilley Hat fits lower and more comfortably than other hats. The lower it sits, the larger at that point is one's head circumference. To find your Tilley size, simply measure around your head, just above the eyebrows. Tell us this measurement in inches or centimeters. We'll take it from there.
You`ll find it a good read.
Machine wash on delicate cycle or hand wash in cool water. Do not use bleach. Smooth and reshape the Hat by hand and set it out to air dry. Wash it frequently.
MADE OF TITANIUM AND KRYPTONITE:
Hardly! The lighterweight Tilley (LT) Hats are handcrafted of a strong, laminated, waterproof nylon, Tilley Nylamtium®; the nylon fabric (93% Nylon, 7% Spandex) is tightly woven with a DWR finish. Other Hats, are created from 10-ounce (per square yard) cotton duck, a tough, soft, closely woven, mercilessly preshrunk, water-and mildew-repellent, canvas-like material. The hemp hats are engineered from 11-oz. hemp, nature’s performance fabric®. Hemp is the world’s strongest natural fibre.
