The Original Canadian Tilley Hat
The only hat to come with a lifetime guarantee...an international symbol of quality and durability
The legend of Tilley Endurables was born in 1980 when Alex Tilley, a Toronto art consultant, designed and manufactured the first Tilley Hat – determined to sacrifice neither practicality nor style in the pursuit of the best casual hat money could buy.
Since then the Tilley Hat has been worn by ever-increasing numbers of adventurers, sailors, travellers, sportsmen and outdoor enthusiasts who praise its durability, versatility, and natural elegance.
The only hat to come with a lifetime guarantee and a 4-page owner’s manual (available in 7 languages) the Tilley Hat has become an international symbol of quality and durability.
Tilley Hats were worn by Canadian troops in the Gulf War; they are also worn by America’s Cup teams
They are beloved of hikers, expedition members, sailors, journalists, long distance rally drivers, archaeologists, golfers, wildlife photographers – in fact anyone who spends time in the outdoors and needs comfortable and reliable protection from sun and rain.
The AMC Cancer Research Centre in the US certified that Tilley Hats block 98 percent of harmful UVA/UVB radiation.
Due to the particular nature of the fit of Tilley Hats, namely that they are designed to fit low and loose on the head of the wearer, they provide maximum protection from both the sun and foul weather - an ultraviolet protection factor (UPF) of 50+, the maximum rating given.
All Tilley Hats are water repellent, mildew-proof, packable, machine washable, shrink resistant and float. They come various fabrics, and 11 sizes, so they fit properly, and carry a lifetime guarantee of free replacement if they ever wear out. This unique guarantee is further enhanced by an insurance policy that provides a half price replacement in the case of theft or loss during the first two years of ownership.
