Tilley’s medium-brim outback hat is made with sturdy 100% cotton with a synthetic wax finish. It is very hard-wearing, and carries an impressive UPF 50+ sun protection rating.
The synthetic wax finish has the character of traditional waxed fabrics, but not the sticky hand feel often associated with them.
There are four metal eyelets at the crown for greater air circulation. A secret pocket inside, sealed with Velcro. 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.

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.
