I'm sure you'll enjoy your new Hat! Like a Rolls-Royce, it's rather special, so let me tell you a bit about it. The Hat was conceived in frustration and born of necessity. As a corporate art dealer and consultant I had become, over the years, rather 'picky' regarding quality, and I couldn't find a hat that quite met my standards - or my boat's (a 31' mahogany, brass, teak, varnish and fiberglass Brandelmayr-designed sloop). A proper sailing hat had to float, stay on, be unshrinkable, last indefinitely, and be attractive. In January 1980, I decided to have one made, not only for myself, but for other sailors. Fortunately, I knew nothing about headgear so I didn't realize that it was thought impossible to make such a hat. I received design advice from a milliner, information about materials from a sail-maker, and then I oversaw its manufacture by a local hat maker. By March, some prototypes were ready. My family and I tested them on a marvelous charter in Belize where we encountered trade winds, reasonably small waves (because of the offshore reef), beautiful islands, superb snorkeling, and friendly people. (On the last day of the charter, at the same moment that I steered us aground, I managed to wrap the anchor line tightly around the propeller shaft...)
Now don't get the impression that the Tilley Hat is just for sailors! It is equally at home in the desert, in the Himalayas, in the garden, as well as on the golf course, by a trout stream or whilst strolling through London in the rain. Tilley Hats are issued to Canadian troops when they go to war or on peace-keeping missions.  --Alex Tilley

Tilley T4
Wide down-sloping brim for those who prefer ample sun protection and shelter from rain. Great hiking and Kayaking hat for any weather! Material: Cotton Duck. -Won't Shrink!
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.
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.
CERTIFIED SUN PROTECTION:
The fabric and style of all Tilley Hats have been certified to block 98 percent of harmful UVA and UVB radiation and deliver an ultraviolet factor (UPF) of 50+, the maximum rating given.
FLOATS:
A layer of closed-cell foam in the crown provides the Tilley`s positive buoyancy. This hat is a boon to paddlers and fishermen!
THE GUARANTEE:
Your Hat is guaranteed for life (yours, mine or its) not to wear out or fall apart. We're delighted to think that yours may be passed on to the next generation!
The cotton-duck T4 was designed especially with canoeists, and kayakers in mind, and do we love `em!
It has also made a hit with gardeners and with others who need the ample sun and rain protection provided by the down-sloping brim.
