    Tilley excellence - 4/27/2015
    By: from Birmingham, AL

    At 34 years old, I'm starting to worry more about the beating my skin has taken from the sun all my life. I purchased this hat to help provide more shade for my face, neck, and ears. I decided on a Tilley based on the reputation and reviews I've seen on the company. The hat itself is EXCELLENT. It's crushable and you are encouraged to wash it often. I would highly recommend this product!

    Tilley is an awesome hat - 2/16/2015
    By: from Cherry Hill, NJ

    I bought this Tilley Airflow hat to replace another brand hat and the comparison between the two hats is so distinct it's hard to believe. This Tilley AirFlow hat is much more comfortable to wear and it's lighter & better looking. I wish I found the Tilley AirFlow hat before I spent so much money on my other hat. I can't wait until I leave for my trip through Central America and get to really enjoy the comfort, style and usefulness on an every day basis. I ordered a size that I believed was accurate but it was too small. I made the exchange by phone for a bigger size and received it in 5 days. I returned the first hat to the local Orvis store with no problem at all. Great job Orvis, on the hat and also with your service!!

    TILLEY TWINS - 9/30/2014
    By: from St Louis MO

    I Bought a Tilley Airflo Hat for my Dad's 90th Birthday. But it was too small. I kept it for myself and re-ordered another one for him. He loves the wide brim. It keeps the sun off of him while he works in his garden or when we go fishing and the Airflo lets the breeze through. Well constructed!

    Quality sun protection! - 8/29/2014
    By: from Atlanta, GA

    This is an extremely well thought-out hat. It provides excellent protection from the elements and includes the dual head/chin cord which prevents the hat from flying off in high winds. It is very light-weight and is vented at the crown to keep your head cool. It floats! And it is a very nice-looking hat which should last for years (especially with Tilley's guarantee-for-life deal).

    Color not as Shown - 8/24/2014

    Very disappointed with the color. In the catalog and online, Khaki appears lighter--almost like a light sand color. It really is a olive/khaki color. Sending it back.

    A Must Have Hat - 7/22/2014
    By: from California

    This is the best hat. It packs easily, washes beautifully and gives great protection from the elements. My hat has been around the world. It has been on my head in the Andes, crossing Cape Horn in 100 mile and hour winds, horse back ridding in the bioreserve in Buenos Aires, fishing in Alaska, in Mongolia and the Gobi Desert where I was searching for dinosaur bones. Recently It protected my while on Safari in Africa. After all those exciting adventures I unfortunately left my beloved hat under the table in a cave in the South of France after a huge lunch and too much wine. Boohoo. I was delighted when my new hat arrived just in time for my trip to Machu Picchu and the Galapalos. Anyone with this hat on their head demands respect. This is a hat for a discriminating person that wants the best in comfort, function and style. Everyone needs a Tilly

    amazing hat - 6/20/2014
    By: from Cos Cob CT

    Look, it's not inexpensive but it fits great, it has a pocket for a credit card or cash, etc., it is vented well so it is cool to wear -- and Tilley will replace it for two years if you lose it! And it looks good too. So what's not to love?

Find your hat size easily!

How to measure for a hatHere’s how you can find your correct hat size quickly and easily: Using a cloth measuring tape, measure around your head at the point at which your hat normally rides (approximately 1” above your ear). Pull the tape tightly enough to get an accurate measurement, but do not pull it too tightly. If your measurement is between two hat sizes, order the larger size.

Your hat should fit securely, but not tightly—if you shake your head back and forth vigorously, the hat should stay put. The same goes for bending forward: if you bend down, your hat shouldn’t slip off. Make sure, though, that your hat doesn’t bind or pinch. If it does, we recommend you exchange it for the next larger size.

Your hat will break in with wear. Over time, your hat will conform to the unique shape of your head, creating a one-of-a-kind fit. With proper care, your hat will provide many years of faithful service.
