Tilley Hats, purpose-built for making the world...better.

The Tilley Hat for Rotarians

“THE  GIFT  OF  HONOUR”

Above is the first Tilley Airflow R6 Hat; it's enjoying a soft breeze at Hilary's and my home on Lake Muskoka, in March, 2018.

Here’s Why You’ll Enjoy it ---

  • You’ll look good and feel great in it!
  • You’ll make new friends.
  • Guaranteed for life not to wear out. Take a peek at the nearby Guardian (UK) article.
  • Lightweight (4 oz.) and crushable.
  • Won’t shrink. If it ever ‘contracts’ simply put it over your knee and pull.
  • Repels rain: Quite well. The brim stays stiff and won’t collapse when wet.
  • Blocks the sun; certified 50+ sun protection. (The highest.)
  • The olive underbrim prevents glare.
  • Machine washable. However, doesn’t the best ‘outdoor’ hat in the world deserve hand washing?
  • It floats: there’s a 1/8-inch thickness of closed-cell foam located in the secret pocket in the crown. The Hat will float longer than I can! This foam has also protected many a head.
  • It’s packable and later looks neat: To remove wrinkles in the crown, simply apply hot water inside and out. It’ll look beautiful in the morning. (The wind cord dries slowly.)
  • Velcro-sealed secret pocket: It’s not really secret, but it’s a handy one: hotel key, license, spare $10 …
  • The material is our special laminated nylon (Nylamtium – I made up the word). The mesh is strong polyester.
  • Handcrafted in Canada where I would keep a watchful eye.
  • Unless requested otherwise, I’ll autograph the inside of your Hat -– just for fun.

ENJOY YOUR TILLEY HAT; MAY YOU OUTLIVE IT

Our Tilley Hats for Rotarians come in 10 sizes (6 7/8 through 8).

If you don’t know your size (or a friend’s size, for a surprise) measure the circumference of a comfortable-fitting hat in inches or centimetres, then tell us that number. (FYI: head circumference in inches divided by pi [3.14] gives us the head size. In the UK, it’s off by one size…)

The Hats I have selected come in three styles, the R6, the R5, and the R3 with its snap-up brim.
The only noticeable difference among the three is the brim size: the R3 is about ¼ inch (1 cm) wider than the R5; the R6 is about the same amount bigger than the R3.
IF YOU PLAN TO ORDER ONE, CONSIDER DOING IT NOW, BECAUSE WE WERE SOLD OUT LAST SUMMER!

DID YOU KNOW?
Interestingly, (and quite wonderfully!) strangers sporting Tilley Hats nearly always chat with each other, or at least tip their Hats, especially in foreign countries. I don’t know of any other item that creates this kind of instant fellowship.
