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

The Tilley Hat for Rotarians

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.

ENJOY YOUR TILLEY HAT; MAY YOU OUTLIVE IT!

HERE’S WHAT MAKES A TILLEY HAT SO SPECIAL

  • You'll look good and feel great in it, and friendships will be made.
  • 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.
  • Block 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

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!
Right now we have Hats and I expect the sales to be slow until April, so to encourage you to order now, the price is hereby reduced by $15 until the end of March: In Canada, that’s $118 vs. $133. The price of these “reassuringly expensive” Hats covers the cost of a required gift to RI, the embroidery, shipping, and postage.
It’s not bad if you keep in mind their lifetime guarantee against wearing out and the friends you may make...

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.

Quantity discounts.
We’ve been asked, and it seems fair to me. How about this:
5 Hats or more, please use the coupon code "5-HATS" to DEDUCT $9.00 for each Hat.
Please make one payment for all, and give me a single mailing address for the shipment.

We don't, of course, have a store. We presently work in a furnished loft (no heat or water or rent) above Hilary's welding studio in a two-car garage. Heated floor.
