I had that tale in mind at the time.  Once bought, you never need another hat (especially if you keep the receipt)

If my Tilley needs a wash I wear it in my post walk shower.  Trouble is it acquires a bit of "character" between washes which disappears in the cleaning process and you have to start all over again!
Díoh!! Now my wife says I need to wear my Tilley in the shower if it needs washing. Previously it has just gone in the washing machine.

It's great if you need a shower but don't want to wash your hair, much more stylish than a shower hat.  Mind you, I always at least rinse my hair when I shower but Mrs N doesn't - perhaps it's a lady thing.

I donít need to worry overly about washing my hair. I have the upgrade that provides greater brain cooling and aids creation of vitamin D, which is useful in north east Scotland.

I'm much the same - built in solar panel.

I've discovered over the last few very sunny and hot days that my Sundays Afternoon Adventure hat, is not only very good at protecting, my face, ears, and head from the sun but the peak has the effect of directing cool air onto my eyebrows area, which I find very nice. Not a lot but enough for me to notice and appreciate. I'm tempted to convince myself that the curve of the peak is acting like an 'aircraft wing' and compressing the airflow in a particular direction?

Perhaps you should ask that nice Mr Bernoulli.

Quite pleased with my new cricket umpire's hat - tested in anger on Black Combe yesterday. Stayed on my head even though quite breezy at times on top, and the built in sweatband works a treat.
