Tilley started life as a quest to find the ultimate cotton sailing hat and, over more than 30 years later, has grown to become a reputable brand selling a range of outdoor hats and clothing. Tilley's whole collection has been designed and engineered towards travel. By using fabrics that are pack-friendly, crease-free, lightweight, breathable and moisture wicking, stretchy, durable and UPF certified, the brand is able to deliver highly function, versatile and comfortable clothing to suit a range of outdoor activities, environments and conditions.
The Tilley hat range includes durable cotton sailing hats, lightweight and quick-drying Nylamtium® (Supplex nylon) hats and classic waxed cotton hats that offer year-round protection from the elements. Some of the features Tilley have designed for their collection include mesh ventilation panels, secret pockets, adjustable wind cords and mildew protection.
Proudly made and manufactured solely in Canada (where the brand can keep a watchful eye on production), Tilley apparel always meets the highest standards and all Tilley hats come with a lifetime guarantee and the company's promise that they will outlive any adventure you put them through. Tilley even boast one of their hats (belonging to the director of Bowmanville Zoo in Ontario) has been eaten by an elephant a total three times, having 'passed through' each time unharmed and lived to tell the tail. Often cited as the world's best made and most practical sailing hats, Tilley hats have come a long way from their humble beginning and the company has expanded to included clothing and bag lines to their range.
