Enter Page Title Here Let us introduce you to our great Canadian head warmers! In October 2004, we added the new Tilley Tether designed to keep your hat on in the wind. (Click on Images to see how the tether works and see "Don't Lose Your Hat" below.)

Unless you`re going deep into the polar regions, the Tilley Winter Hat may, all in all, be the best, most practical, general purpose one available anywhere. (The Hat should be, we've been developing it, improving it, redesigning it for years!)

May your new Tilley Hat make you want winter to last even longer! Besides being good-looking, warm and comfortable, here`s what makes it special:
  • Guaranteed for life
  • Insured against loss
  • Unique Tuckaway Forehead Warmer and Earflaps
  • Wool Exterior
  • Secret Pocket
  • Hidden tether feature keeps you from losing your hat in strong winds
  • Coated for stain and water repellency
  • Hydrofil® Anti-Sweatband
  • Tilley Size-Adjustment Device gives you a custom fit
  • Sizes: 6 7/8 - 8 3/8
  • Dry Cleanable

The Winter Hats are handcrafted in Toronto where all Tilley Hats and virtually all our travel clothes are made - and where I (Alex Tilley) can keep a watchful eye.

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 next generation!

It's also insured against loss. If you do lose it, or the family dog destroys it, we'll replace it within two years of the purchase date at half the current catalogue price, through our mail-order department. We always try to meet our clients at least half way!

With your Hat, you'll be provided with "The Straight-Shooter's Statement of Loss of a Tilley Hat" insurance policy. Again, the insurance is for two years, all perils, 50% deductible, and is not issued by Lloyds.

The downward slope of the brim, both front and back, is intentional: the slope protects your forehead and the back of your neck from wind and snow as much as possible. The slope looks rather dashing, doesn't it?

For material, we selected the same time-proven fabric that you probably would have: an excellent, soft, warm, wool, woven for us in Montreal. They know cold and snow in Montreal. Fashion too! Although the Winter Hats may not shrink if you machine-wash them, don't take a chance: have them dry-cleaned.

To make the Winter Hat rain and stain repellent, we've coated the wool. To make the interior as comfy as possible, we selected a strong, long-lasting, soft polyester. It's 'peached' to make it even softer, and to help it trap your body's heat.

The sweatband is made of comfortable, durable Hydrofil®, which absorbs sweat and wicks it away from your forehead so it can evaporate quickly.

Inside the secret pocket in the crown of the Hat is a thin layer of closed-cell insulating foam. Heat rises, and the foam stores some of it. This dense foam also softens accidental blows to the noggin. From time to time people tell us how the peculiar qualities of their Tilley Hats have probably saved their lives!

Inside the Hat, you'll see at the back a removable Size-Equalization Device held in by Velcro®. Its purpose is to permit you to maintain the same comfortable size regardless of the flaps being up or down.

Some years ago, I went out for a walk on a cold, windy winter's day. The wind chill was memorable. After a short while my forehead was so painfully cold that I had to retreat home. Remembering the admonition that 'there's no such thing as bad weather, just bad gear,' I decided that a forehead warmer was necessary. That's why it's there, and I find I use it, and the ear flaps, fairly often.

The new usually invisible 'tether' keeps you from losing your hat in strong winds. (Click "View More Images" to see how the tether works.) The tether is a hidden adjustable strap that fits comfortably on the forehead to hold the hat in place.

I think you'll find it a good read.

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.

As mentioned above, a 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. Tell us this measurement. We'll take it from there.

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. We've designed it so you can always make it smaller, but not bigger!

There! You've just learned more than you intended as to why a "Tilley" is the best-made and most practical multi-purpose hat in the world.

Tilley Winter Hats are made of fine quality wool. Although they may not shrink if you machine-wash, don’t take a chance: have them dry-cleaned because they are made mostly of wool.
