Comfortable, reliable and understated, yet with secret depths (or in this case, pockets) and just plain nice—it'll come as no surprise that Tilley hats are Canadian! Alex Tilley was fed up with all the hats he'd found—they either blew off, or had to be cinched on painfully tight, so he decided that he could improve on them: and thus was born the Tilley hat. They've become so popular that travellers the world over are constantly meeting new friends through the "Tilley hat network"! Tilley places such confidence in their hats—and in the assurance that you will, too—that they even come with an insurance policy: if your hat is lost, stolen or destroyed within 2 years of purchase, you can get a second one half price! Additionally, if it just plain wears out, once in its lifetime, they'll replace it for you. Completely free!
