GTC says "this is the only travel hat you'll ever need in a lifetime!"

We love Tilley hats in our family, especially the little secret pocket and the owners' manual!

We reckon they are the perfect  womens' hat for travelling,as you can roll them up and stuff them in your suitcase or pocket,  and then they are still perfectly shaped when you need them.

Brilliant for on the beach, you can also smarten them up for a more dressy look by turning the brim down all the way round, and tying a pretty scarf or even a beaded necklace round the crown."

 
  • GUARANTEED FOR LIFE
  • INSURED AGAINST LOSS
  • EXCELLENT SUN PROTECTION
  • REPELS RAIN
  • TIES ON IN THE WIND
  • HAND WASH GENTLY IN WARM WATER WITH MILD SOAP. AIR DRY.

The TH8 Hemp Hat is, indeed, elegant yet hard-working. Can be worn brim up all the way or jauntily tipped to set the tone for any occasion. Add your personal panache with a scarf, vibrant hat band or eye-catching pin. The all-around wide brim offers a lifetime investment in sun protection and style.

Why Hemp? Not only do our Hemp Hats look great, but they have a soft linen-like look with a 'tough as nails attitude'. In fact, Hemp is the world's strongest natural fibre. It is breathable, and naturally resistant to UV light, mould, mildew and salt water. Tilley Hemp fabric has been tested and certified as having a UPF 50+; this is the maximum UV protection rating given. Like its owner, your TH8 Tilley Hat requires a little care to look lovely for life. Please read Washing Instructions below.

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).

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.

FLOATS:
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.

TIES ON:
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.

REPELS RAIN:
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.


WON`T SHRINK:
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.

You still need SPF 15 sunscreen and sunglasses with UV filters! Children especially need the UV filters in their sunglasses as non-filtering glasses will increase the size of their pupils, allowing even more of the damaging UV rays to enter. This often causes cataracts and retinal problems later in life and has happened in my (Alex Tilley`s) own family.

4-PAGE OWNER`S MANUAL:
You`ll find it a good read.

BRAG TAGS:
There are 8 of these in the Secret Pocket.

SECRET POCKET:
Inside the crown is a good-sized pocket sealed with Velcro. In it, carry your Brag Tags, I.D., toilet paper(!), license, hotel key, £10 bill (in your case a 20), plus 20p for an emergency phone call.

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR HEAD:
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 centimetres. We`ll take it from there.
 
WASHING INSTRUCTIONS:
Like its owner, your TH8 Tilley Hat requires a little care to look lovely for life.

Wash: Hand wash gently in warm water with mild soap. Do not use any fabric softener or bleach!

Dry: Gently wrap in towel to remove excess water. Smooth out any wrinkles and put it over a bowl that is turned upside down or stuff with tissue paper to maintain the shape of the crown. Let it dry with the brim turned down (like an umbrella). Air Dry. When it is dry, shape it back by turning the edge of the brim up all around like it was when you first became enamoured with it.

Iron: Depending on your preference it may need a little touch up. If so, using the “cotton” temperature setting, iron the brim area while being very careful not to apply any heat to the very edge where the trim is sewn on.

We are hopeful that you will enjoy the character your special Tilley begins to develop now and forever. Remember, it is guaranteed for life not to wear out.

OUR GUARANTEE:
If you ever succeed in wearing out your Tilley Hat (and some have), send us the remains and we will replace it free. If you want to keep your faithful, old, worn-out friend, tell us and we`ll return it to you. We understand.

Remember: Upon purchase, your Hat is covered by a two-year, all-peril, 50% deductible, Hat Insurance Policy to take the pain out of loss or irreparable damage.
 
How to find your ideal Tilley Hat; either measure around your head so the bottom of the tape is just touching your eyebrows, or choose one size larger than your normal standard hat size.
