Yes and yes. OK they are expensive but a very good hat, I've got the wide brim type, no complaints whatsoever
I never get lost, just don't always know where I am!

Bought one last year after months of trying to justify the cost :-X  Wish i had bought one years ago, cannot be beaten . I got the one with ventilation round the top as its main purpose is for a sun hat, but it does work well in rain

If you ever get sunburn on your bold head you'll know why the they're so good.

I finally bit the bullet and bought one a couple of years ago. It's fantastic; I wish I'd bought it sooner!

On my second one now. The first has become well worn and scruffy so used in the garden, but still first class protection.  Ideal for us old farts with bald heads.  It also keeps the sun out of the eyes and off the tops of the ears, so I find it effectively makes me feel cooler.
Also bril in the rain!

I have a Black LTM6 for use from Autumn to Spring and I love it however, throughout the summer I tend to revert to my Tarp Hat, just as comfortable but considerably cheaper, especially if you purchase one of their slight seconds

How much should Tilley hats be? - The only ones I've ever seen (not that I've looked a lot) are £60-70 - seems a lot to me compared to the £5 baseball cap I often wear.

Edit: Also - dont they blow off in wind?

Thay have a chin strap and another strap at the back which I'm told is for going under your ponytail ::)
