      I would never have seen myself as ever wearing a Tilley Hat; in fact, this brand has been a bit of a joke between my husband and me, because we tend to think of these hats as hats for old people. In Western Canada, there are Tilley Endurables stores all over, and countless outdoor and sports retailers that carry Tilley products. While this brand is mainly known for its distinctive hats, they also carry clothing. When I received a hat last year before a European trip, I was skeptical, especially when I found out that my husband spent $80 for it. I thought it was mostly a joke, but I have, grudgingly,

      come to really appreciate this hat.

      The first feature of these expensive hats that makes them an investment is that they have a lifetime guarantee against wear and tear. They also have SPF 50, are completely washable, air dry in two hours, crush completely for easy packing, and have brims that you can wear up or down. All of these features were on the tag when I received my hat, but it wasn’t until I began to wear it during my traveling adventures around the world and my closer-to-home adventures while fishing and hiking that I truly began to appreciate it and think that, just maybe, it was worth the hefty price-tag. I had to read the owner’s manual a few times to learn about all of the features, but the features that I appreciate the most by wearing it are following:

      The hats come in all styles, shapes, colours, fabrics, and even sizes, which is quite unusual with hat, which are usually either large or small. My particular hat is made of a breathable nylon with a broad brim, so it really protects against sun and rain, plus the brim can be turned up. The fabric is breathable and ventilated, with two ventilation holes on both sides, so even when my head is sweaty, my head and hair doesn’t feel hot. It has an adjustable ...

      strap that I wear when it is very windy out. Because it is tan, it tends to show the dirt but I have washed it numerous times, and it never shrinks or fades, and it dries quickly-I have hand washed it while in exotic and remote places, and it dries quickly. It packs easily in a suitcase or backpack and folds completely flat, but then snaps right back into shape. I love the anti-sweat band that takes away wetness from my head, and the dark strip under the brim is also glare-resistant, so if I don’t have my sunglasses, I still can see in the sun. It is also comfortable, and although
      I generally do not like hats at all, this one feels good on. My very favourite feature is a secret pocket in the top inner area of the hat that has a Velcro opening, and is big enough for cash, credit cards, or hotel keys. I love this pocket and I use it for everything. It means that while traveling, I do not have to bring a backpack or purse, plus the valuables are hidden, so I don’t need to worry about pick-pockets. I admit that I love my Tilley Hat.

      Tilley hats and clothing are available in Tilley Endurables stores in Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto; however, most sporting goods and clothing stores throughout Canada carry Tilley products.
