Lightweight, extremely hard-working, UV-protective hat with medium brim and mesh panel for breathability.Read more…
Made from 100% supplex nylon (Nylamtium®) this UV-protective hat is lightweight yet super tough.
The hat is lined with high-wicking polyester mesh and has a ¾” mesh section at the crown for enhanced breathability and air circulation.
There is a secret pocket in the crown, sealed with Velcro. The underside of the brim is darker in colour to help reduce glare. The fabric repels rain. It’ll float if it falls into water. And, a fabric tie helps to keep it in place if the wind picks up.
What more could you ask for? A lifetime guarantee against it wearing out? Don’t worry, Tilley have got that covered too.
*A note on Sun Protection.
Fabrics of all Tilley Hats are certified to block 98% of harmful UVA/UVB radiation and deliver an ultraviolet factor (UPF) of 50+, the maximum rating. Although Tilley Hats block 98% of UV rays, some rays COULD enter through the 3/4" mesh.
Front: 2 5/8" Back: 2 3/4" Sides: 2 1/8"
Nylamtium (durable nylon supplex)
We pioneered the testing of fabric for UV penetration in the UK over fifteen years ago. The health risks are now, of course, more widely recognised. All Rohan fabrics for hot weather, that carry the sun icon, are tested for their Ultraviolet Protection Factor and rated UPF 40+.
We were the original lightweight revolutionaries. Back in the 1970’s we realised that cutting weight without losing performance meant that you can take less and do more. Everything we make is engineered to achieve this.
