sunlight, but allows air to pass easily. LTM9 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 LTM9 Mesh Hat is

HERE'S WHY TILLEY HATS ARE ACKNOWLEDGED 'THE
BEST IN THE WORLD.'
APPEARANCE AND COMFORT:
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).
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
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

sometimes in the brim, provides the Tilley's positive buoyancy. This is a boon

The Tilley comes with a tuckaway

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.

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
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
Soft and comfortable, it picks up sweat from your forehead and
wicks it away to your temple area where it evaporates.CERTIFIED SUN
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.
