Fess up, who owns a Tilley hat?

I hit my mid 40's so I figured it was age appropriate to get my first Tilley hat. This shot was from this afternoon's hike at Hilton Falls Conservation Area. It was a warm, sunny day that required some head sun protection.

Post your Tilley hat photos:

I use a khaki boonie hat for lawn and garden work. Used to just hang out in the sun with no protection and a shaved head, then I started getting paranoid about every weird freckle.

I wear a mesh safari style hat by DPC, similar to this.

Having a shaved head, I have several hats like a Tilley. I have never, however, actually ever found a Tilley hat in the 7 3/4 or 7 7/8 size necessary to fit me. I would like to try one on before buying it.

I've got a big head ... so many people have told me. My Tilley hat is a 7 7/8 size. I wouldn't buy one unless I could try it on either. Mine is the Airflow LTM5.

Next time you're in Vancouver,B.C. check out their store at 8th and Grandville, they have all their hat's in all sizes to try on. I'm on my second Tilley Hat as my first went walkabout without me.

And just today, over on ADVRider, I was commenting on how I have only found one brand of modular/flip-up motorcycle helmet to fit me. In addition to being large, my head is round, and is largest in diameter right above the temples. That pretty much means that only Shoei and HJC helmets fit me comfortably in a modular helmet. I am guessing on the Shoei, since I have not found any XXL MultiTec to try on. The XL MultiTec is too small, but it seemed to be the correct shape.

I have several Boonie style hats, but at the rate I loose hats I don't see the need in having a Tilly brand hat.

I prefer a Camo Gortex Cabelas Boonie for the wet woods.
I prefer a cotton boonie when on the boat

The dog replies, "Eff that, pour me a Flying Dog."

I have a coupla straw hats, made like an Amish hat but "creased" like a Tilley and with a wider brim; lots of shade for working in our prairie. Mesh safari hat looks appealing; looks like it'd be shady but cool.

Hats on fellas are making a comeback, aren't they? Albeit in a much more casual style than in the '40s through the early '60s. I read somewhere that it was President Kennedy being seen so often without a hat (more than his predecessors) that led to the early-'60s demise of gentlemen wearing fedoras, et al, in public.

I have a Tilley. The stash pocket is useful for stashing stuff. I can also use it to bail out boats.

I happen to have two!

Why? you ask! Since they have a lifetime guarantee!

Because my wife pilferred my first one, and won't give it back!!!

Soooooo, in reality, I still only have one.

They are great fishing hats!
