Can you let us know what you think of it.


only worn it for one (hot)  day so far and first impressions are very comfortable, it lets plenty of air in to cool your head but I would want to try it slogging up Kinder on a hot day before I say its fantastic. The brim is big enough to keep your face/neck and ears out of the sun and the straps look like theyre going to keep it on in  the wind. Are they worth 80? if you can afford it easily then yes but its a lot of money for a hat even though it has a lifetime guarantee. Having said that theres plenty of testimonials online as to how tough they are and the two year insurance against loss is something different.

Years ago, bout 12, I had one of these and it was very good. Got to much abuse when I started wearing it for work. https://www.campingworld.co.uk/Mobile/en/White-Rock-Outback-X-Lite-Micro-Fibre-Adjustable-Vent--Hat-STONE/m-m-5604.aspx

Recently brought a Tilley Hat.  First walk in the rain when my glasses have not become waterlogged and reduced visibility almost to zero.  Expensive but well worth it just to be able to read my map in the rain!

Can you tell me which model Tilly hat did you buy that protected your glasses from the rain please.
These boots are made for walking.... so long as the rest of my body agrees

At over 60, i feel i can find better value headgear.
Well made, but at 60 and above i would expect it to be.

Mine was the T3 Wanderer but I would imagine that any hat with a wide brim and sits low on the head would do the same job.
