What does 3XDRY®
technology mean to you?
It keeps you dry on the outside and dry on the inside all at the same
time, ensuring constant comfort. The nylon fabric repels moistures and
stains from the exterior of the Hat. The interior polar fleece
transports moisture to the exterior of the Hat where it evaporates,
ensuring comfort. The Hat also dries significantly faster than other
fabrics after outdoor activities or washing. The soft and breathable
polar fleece interior works to keep your head cosy and comfortable
during the coldest days.
Like all Tilley Hats the 'Soft Shell' Winter Hat is crushable and
packable, easy to tuck-away in a bag when indoors and ready to be
popped back into shape when headed outdoors. Tuck-away ear warmers in a
comfy cotton/spandex blend keep not only ears warm but also offer
‘staying power’ in windy conditions. A secret
pocket in the crown is large enough to hold credit cards, hotel key and
some emergency cash. Typically Tilley, it is Guaranteed for Life not to
wear out and insured for two years against all perils. The 'Soft Shell'
Winter Hat is also sun protective. It has UPF 50+ protection, the
maximum rating given.

Your Hat is guaranteed for life (yours, mine or its) not to wear out or
fall apart. We're delighted to think that yours may be passed on to the
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.
Inside the crown is a good-sized pocket sealed with Velcro®
In it, carry your I.D., hotel key, $10 bill (in your case, a $20), plus
a quarter for an emergency phone call.
I think you'll find it a good read. It's available in either English or
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.
HOW TO MEASURE YOUR HEAD:
Tilley Hat fits lower and more comfortably than other hats. The lower
it sits, the larger at that point is one's head circumference. To find
your Tilley size, simply measure around your head, just above the
eyebrows. Or refer to our Hat Sizing Chart for the easy reference to
your Tilley Hat size.
If you already know your regular hat size, please ask for one size
larger when you order your Tilley. For instance, if you're sure you're
a 7 1/4‚ order a 7 3/8.
