Tilley has been making this particular Cotton Duck Hat for over 30 years. If you're keen on classics this Tilley Hat is the one for you. After all, if it ain't broke…
While this snap up Cotton Duck Hat is generally considered a sailing style, the origin of it is in the army. The side snaps were designed for soldiers who needed the brim out of the way when firing their rifles. However, the snap up sides also offers extra stability in windy conditions on the water. So whether on the sea, or on land, this Hat will keep you protected from the sun & rain.

This is my third Tilley hat. Only required since previous stolen, they’re that desirable! Bought it to keep off the African sun but its good for anywhere and the rain too. The fold up sides are perfect for my job (photographer/cameraman) when using camera viewfinders.

Its already travelled over 3000 miles with me, most if it on my head of course, keeping the sun off my head, nose and ears whilst travelling in an open top car. The straps give you the confidence your expensive new hat is not going to blow off but in fact not once did it ever feel like it would, even at 80 mph on the French motorways! Great quality hat and great service from e-outdoor. Should have bought a Tilley years ago, nothing else comes close.
