Most of the lightest weight Tilley hats will not protect you from the rain in any useful way. By adding a dry wax finish to their lightweight cotton fabric Tilley have made a hat that will protect you in the worst downpour. It's still just as washable as all their other hats too.
HOW TO MEASURE YOUR HEAD
Like footwear, your Tilley Hat must be sized properly. To find your hat size, use a tape measure and draw it right around your head. For the best-looking and most comfortable fit, please make sure that the bottom of the tape touches right above your eyebrows while resting straight around your head. Hold it there comfortably and do not pull tight! Tell us this measurement in inches or centimetres. We’ll take it from there.
You may also refer to our Hat Sizing Chart below for an easy reference to your Tilley Hat size.
If you already know your regular (not a Tilley) hat size, please ask for one size larger when you order your Tilley. For instance, if you’re sure you’re a 7¼, order a 7⅜.
The Tilley Hat fits more comfortably than other hats. It’s designed to be worn low on your head and slightly loose. It should be held on by gravity, not by painful pressure on your forehead! When it’s windy, use the cord!
You’ll find our ‘round’ crown styles (i.e. T3, LTM3) and our ‘oval’ crown styles (i.e. T4, LTM6, LTM5 etc.) measure the same circumference but feel slightly different on your head. If you can fit two fingers flat between your forehead and Tilley Hat then the size is correct, even though they may feel different due to the crown style. If used to a ‘round’ crown style, it may take you a few days to get used to an ‘oval’ crown style.
Much like your clothes, individual fabrics feel different on, even when they’re the same size. For example, your lightweight nylon LTM6 Tilley Hat will feel different than your TH4 hemp Tilley Hat. Due to the varying fabric weights, each Hat offers its own unique feel.
