Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST HAT EVER ** This is an update for my past review ** I've owned this hat for awhile now and it's the best hat I've ever owned. My first review stated "a little pricey", I'd like to revise that to ==> "WORTH EVERY PENNNY"..! In HOT weather it keeps my head "cool" and in cold weather it keeps my head "warm". I also find when you need to wash this hat, just rinse it off in the shower, Pat down with a towel and put it on a jar or similar to dry. Mine drys in about an hour or so. Follow Tilley's measuring guide and Order a size larger than you would a regular hat and it should fit great. I sometimes forget I'm wearing it... ...YES, Tilley's are that comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very popular hat I have had this hat for about 3 years. It's a good hat. If you hike Half Dome you will probably see a dozen other people wearing one just like it. It is not exactly a warm weather hat and it is not a cold weather hat either, but it does very well at staying on my head when the wind is blowing. If you spend an afternoon on any of the peaks around Lake Tahoe then you will appreciate that. I have watched a few basball caps soar away. A previous review explained that it does not breathe well and the sweat band becomes saturated. That is my experience as well. I gave it four stars because it is a rugged hat and it pretty much does what Tilly says it will do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Hat for all occasions I have had one of these hats for 5 or 6 years. I use it regularly around the neighborhood but where it really shines is when I travel the world to SCUBA dive. It holds its shape, washes like a dream, folds flat in my luggage, drys fast. I use it as a sun hat, wind hat, umbrella and even when I feel a little chill. I have even snorkeled with it on my head when in an equatorial area with very strong sun. Strong wind can force the flap down over my eyes, but mostly it stays out to prtect my face. When I get home from a long trip I just throw it in the washer and lay it flat to dry. Comes out great. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product as advertised! This hat was recommended by friends who had them. I liked the way their hats looked on me and I usually don't look good in hats with brims all around. I like the fact the hat comes in specific sizes (I have a big head and got a size 7 5/8. It is made well and is washable and has a life-time guarantee. The air vent is great making my head cooler. I did notice the front of the hat tends to squish my bangs and make them sweaty since it sits lower on my face than most hats, so I either brush my bangs up inside the hat or switch off once in while to one of my baseball hats which do not flatten my bangs but which provide less sun protection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible hat - abuse it; wash it; like new I use this as my everyday hat; initially for fly fishing, backpacking & traveling. But, I am a cow veterinarian, so once the newness wore off; it also became my everyday work hat. Often lots of manure and sweat covering the hat so when it's time to head off on a leisure trip, I throw it into the washing machine and then air dry it; comes out looking brand new! Great chin strap, typically I don't use it and just fold it into the top of the hat but on a windy pass it keeps the hat firmly on your head. Great hat in heat or rain. I work in the Central Valley of CA. with summer temperatures often over 100 degrees, the hat has an excellent built in sweat band and is much cooler than most straw hats. Worth every penny.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not great for really hot weather The hat looks nice, but in really hot, humid weather, when I need a sun hat the most, I find that the hat does not breathe well. The mesh is a plus, but the rest of the fabric is waterproof/non-breathable. In particular, the sweat band is sealed on the outside by this waterproof fabric, so it just gets wetter and wetter and never evaporates any sweat until the hat is removed. It is fine for cooler weather and also sheds rain pretty well. I wear mine for social occasions when I want something that looks nicer than the hats I have that can perform in the heat. Not a great value for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best broad brim hat ever! I have had this hat for three years now. I wear it both at home and on the trail. It is one of the most reliable pieces of gear I own. It is seemingly indestructible. It washes easily in the washing machine and come out looking brand new every time. The hat regains its shape even when scrunched up for hours in my pack. The down side is, if you want that "I've-been-on -the -trail -for-months " look, it is best not to ever wash it. The chin strap and the one at the back of the head keep it from blowing off even in the strongest wind. One of the best designed items I own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What I expected Bought my first Tilley to take granddaughter to Disney world 10 years ago (still have it). I washed it and hung it to dry before taking Granddaughter on family trip up the east coast. When I arrived at Ashville,N.C. I realized my Tilley was hanging in the washroom back in Texas, so I found another REI. Newer, broader brim with a nice breeze, it is now my favorite outside hat. Good fit( Although I have a big head), it kept the sun away at civil war battlegrounds and the rain away at Mt. Vernon. What a keeper.

Will the ventilation holes at the top allow sun in? Looking at this for my Dad but he doesn't have much hair on the top of his head and can't tell if the sun could get through the holes?

Asked by: Sunmama
The holes on the hat will not typically let in sunlight.

My head measures 22-1/2.  Not sure whether to go smaller (22-3/8, or a bit larger 22-3/4).  22-1/2 isn't available.

My head measures 21 5/8" which you say in your info is a hat size of 6 7/8".  But you only show a 7" as the smallest size to order on your order form.  How do I order a 6 7/8?

Asked by: Jsu1955
Based on your measurements, we recommend a 6-7/8 size. As of June 2017, we are out of stock of the size 6-7/8 and do not know when it will become available again.
