Introducing the Lighterweight Mesh Hats, the newest generation of Tilley Hats.

And it weighs only about 4 ounces!


Tilley lighterweight Mesh Hats are ideal for the outdoor enthusiasts looking to keep their cool. This Hat is lightweight, breathable and comfortable because the crown is made of strong, unique '3-D' polyester mesh which blocks sunlight, but allows air to pass easily. LTM8 has been engineered with a water-repellent, UV protection 3" mesh crown with a lighterweight Supplex® nylon brim. Designed to be very lightweight & breathable the Tilley lighterweight Mesh Hats have been tested and certified as having a UPF 50+, the maximum UV protection rating given.

The LTM8 Mesh Hat is styled with the broader brim size of the Tilley LTM6 model and T4 Cotton duck models.

Brim Measurements: Front and Back: 3 1/4" Sides: 2 1/2"

If you give us your head measurement (inches or centimetres) on the Sizing Guide on the website, we’ll give you the right size. Or refer to our
Hat Sizing Chart for the easy reference to your Tilley Hat size.

HERE'S WHY TILLEY HATS ARE ACKNOWLEDGED 'THE BEST IN THE WORLD.'

APPEARANCE AND COMFORT:
To protect you from the sun and rain, Tilleys fit lower than other hats. This also tends to give one a rather dashing appearance!

For your comfort, they're held on by gravity, not painful pressure on your forehead. On a hot muggy day, you'll especially appreciate this!

Even though they fit gently, Tilleys won't fly off because when there's a breeze, you use one or both parts of the tuckaway Wind Cord (see TIES ON below).

GUARANTEED FOR LIFE:
Tilleys are replaced free if they ever wear out, shrink or fall apart. They're so carefully handcrafted by us in Canada, and made of such strong materials, that many outlive their owners. Final words in the Owner's Manual? "Pass it on!"

INSURED AGAINST LOSS:
We understand the anguish of losing this reliable companion, or of having your dog terminally gnaw it. Should that happen, we'll replace your late, lamented Tilley at half the catalogue price.

With your Hat, you'll be provided with "The Straight-Shooter's Statement of Loss of a Tilley Hat" insurance policy. The insurance is for two years, all perils, 50% deductible, and is not issued by Lloyds.

FLOATS:
A layer of closed-cell foam in the crown, and sometimes in the brim, provides the Tilley's positive buoyancy. This is a boon to boaters and fishermen/women/people. Good grief!


People have told us that this foam layer has helped save their lives. Double your money back if it doesn't save yours. Apply personally....

TIES ON:
The Tilley comes with a tuckaway, adjustable, fore 'n' aft Wind Cord. When it's calm, the Wind Cord stays hidden in the crown. When there's a breeze, place the part with the sliding knots behind your head. When it's windy or you're sailing, use the chin part too.

See COMFORT above, and the Owner's Manual, which accompanies each Hat, for amplification.

REPELS RAIN:
Not perfectly but usually quite adequately. Happily, the brims of the cotton-duck Tilleys actually become stiffer when they get wet, not floppier, helping to protect your neck, face and glasses.

The Lighterweight Nylamtium® Tilleys are excellent at repelling rain.

WON'T SHRINK:
They, in 1980: "Alex, you can't make a cotton hat that won't shrink!"
Me: "But what if we boiled the material first? Mercilessly preshrunk it?"
They: "Well, I guess that would work."
It did and does.

HYDROFIL® ANTI-SWEAT BAND:
Soft and comfortable, it picks up sweat from your forehead and wicks it away to your temple area where it evaporates.

CERTIFIED SUN PROTECTION:
The fabric and style of all Tilley Hats have been certified to block 98 percent of harmful UVA/UVB radiation and deliver an ultraviolet factor (UPF) of 50+, the maximum rating given.

You still need SPF 15 sunscreen and sunglasses with UV filters! Children especially need the UV filters in their sunglasses as non-filtering glasses will increase the size of their pupils, allowing even more of the damaging UV rays to enter. This often causes cataracts and retinal problems later in life and has happened in my (Alex Tilley's) own family.
