Tilley Hats

The Tilley AIRFLO Hats - Cool Styles

The AIRFLO Story

These unique styles provide sun protection in a lighterweight construction incorporating mesh fabric into the crown for a cool and comfortable feeling.

These lighterweight Hats are engineered from Tilley’s signature Nylamtium, a newly developed, strong, water repellent and mildew-proof form of Supplex nylon. The gommets are solid British brass. The Hat is made by hand with the help, of course, of the small, powerful sewing machines needed to sew the tough material. Don’t worry about the strong threads pulling loose; they’re lockstitched, as are all the stitches in everything we make.

We use a special cotton thread that swells when wet, sealing the holes against rain. Will rain
enter through the grommets or mesh? Yes, but usually not that much; just enough to keep us
refreshed
. . .Tilley Hats are not sou’westers.

Like all Tilley Hats, the Tilley AIRFLO Hats protect from the sun, float, tie on in the wind, repel rain, are machine washable, and are crushable and packable. Guaranteed for life not to wear out, each comes with a 4-page Owner’s Manual and is insured against theft or loss for 2 years.

Ideal for tropical climates, hot days or strenuous outdoor activities.
