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).
GUARANTEED FOR LIFE:
Tilleys are replaced free if they ever wear out, shrink or fall apart. They`re so carefully handcrafted by us in Canada, and made of such strong materials, that many outlive their owners. Final words in the Owner`s Manual? `Pass it on!`
INSURED AGAINST LOSS:
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 catalogue price.
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.
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....
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 COMFORT above, and the Owner`s Manual, which accompanies each Hat, for amplification.
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.
They, in 1980: `Alex, you can`t make a cotton hat that won`t shrink!`
Me: `But what if we boiled the material first? Mercilessly preshrunk it?`
They: `Well, I guess that would work.`
It did and does.
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.
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.
