This is the second Tilley hat that I have purchased. The first one was bought approximately 20 years ago and is still going strong, although too battered and stained to wear in public! In view of the quality of Tilley hats, I had no hesitation in ordering a new one. I found the service from e-OUTDOOR to be excellent. I was kept up-to-date with the progress of my order by regular e-mails and the hat arrived much sooner than expected. Full marks for service.

I just received my new Tilley T3 hat and it is a perfect fit and what's more looks good on me. It is also the most comfortable hat I've ever worn (maybe because it fits properly?). I recommend following Tilley's hat sizing guide. It worked great for me.
What other company insures a hat against loss for 2 years. I can't think of one. Not only that, Tilley give a life time warranty on the hat and should it ever wear out they will replace it. Just make sure you register your hat on Tilleys website to activate your warranty.
The hat also has a pocket in the crown for a bit of emergency cash or whatever small items you might want to put in there. The hat has an adjustable strap to secure it in windy conditions.
I've never really been a hat person until now. Maybe because I've never found one that suited me or fit me properly apart from baseball type caps. That said, I can guarantee that my new hat will get a lot of use on my hikes in the mountains and in general on hot sunny days. I love my new hat.
I have to mention the exemplary service from e-outdoors. I had a small query which concerned the velcro closure on the pocket. Apparently tilley decided not to include the velcro on their newer hats. I wanted the one with the velcro closure if possible.
I was out when the reply came through saying that they could supply that particular one if that was my preference. Noticing that my hat had already been dispatched before I could confirm my preference I asked if it could be confirmed which hat had been sent. My preference for the velcro closure on the pocket had been anticipated and the correct hat sent.
First class service and communication from e-outdoors.
Delivery was super quick too. I opted for free delivery and my hat arrived at 10:30a.m. on the second working day after ordering. Can't fault that. Top service, great communication, fast delivery and a great fitting and good looking hat. What's not to like?
