The Tilley Hat Owner's Place
« on: May 27, 2018, 04:35:19 AM »
Picked up a Tilley AirfloLTM6 back when Gander Mountain a town over was going under. Think i got it for 40ish bucks. It finally got a good wearing doing yard work yesterday. I'm a redhead so it works well to shade my noggin while mowing and weed eating. It's more comfortable than my Outdoor Research Helios, breathes better too. I'd say I would pay full price for one knowing the lifetime warranty it has and the comfort it provides.

I'm going to have to look into that. All my work clothes made by Dickies are hard used and are awesome for the price.

All my shirts are dickies, the hats ok, it just seems very light and flimsy, the top seems to have a piece of cardboard in it idk if it’s just for show and I’m suppose to take it out or it stays?

I don’t remember where I was but I did the same thing, there was a huge box full of hats and for some reason these two just jumped out at me, one all leather, made down under, I did some research and it was a pretty expensive hat, and that’s just down there let alone paying to get it up in the US. Then another that also wasn’t a cheap hat, I think I ended up paying $2 each, the Mrs still thinks it’s a waste, heck even if I only ware it once it’s still not a waste for that price!

I've had this Tilley for about 10 years. I think I picked it up in Vancouver, Canada.   :think:



Great hat.

This style is one of my favorites. I've worn this hat hiking, camping, kayking, canoeing, and just walking the dog.

This style Tilley is actually a lot like the older style Army hats worn by US forces early in the Vietnam era. One of the reasons I'm attached to it.  :salute:

I've been wearing a Tilley for almost ten years.  I have worn out several and had them all replaced under warranty until my last one when I felt like I'd taken enough freebies and bought my first Airflow one, which I wear all year round.



I still have my last two, one of which has the big R in it meaning it's been replaced, and another that wore out and I never had replaced.  If I should change my mind about that, I can do it pretty well any time.

Megan has a nice oilskin one that I like very much and wouldn't mind having one as well for rainy days.



If I'm not careful, I could find myself owning a dozen of them!

OK, that's just wrong.

But, when faced with such insanity, I get my Tilley nice and wet and then head outside to do what I need to do. Then I spend the next 15 minutes sucking down iced tea. Just a word of experience thar.......... :rofl:

When the Fall rains arrive, and I'm going to be standing around in a wet stream, trying to fool some stupid fish, I turn to a waxed Filson lid:

In summer, I tend to wear a straw hat more often than my Tilley, it's lighter and cooler. The Tilley offers better shade, especially when the sun is low in the sky, and can be crumpled when packed, makes a great spring and fall hat for me, and stays on my head better in a wind. The Tilley is also my favourite folk festival hat. 30+ years of ownership, several hats.

The Tilley is almost impossible to remove from my head with both straps utilized. Gale-force hat.  :tu:

An original Tilley was my work hat for seven years. In that time it faded from khaki to almost white, and all but disintegrated. The effect of the New Zealand sun combined with summer sweat.

Yep. One of the great things about it was how it stayed on even when driving an open tractor at top speed, into exactly that wind force. :hatsoff:

Between this and that.

I bought my first Tilley a couple of years and and it's been my trusty companion since the day I got it.  The pic bellow was taken during our trip to Austria last years, some things have changed in this setup for this year's Austria trip (Rebar got replaced by a Vic Evo28, the Garmin Fenix got replaced by the Casio GWG-1000-1A3ER, and the MTO Pioneer X also came along this year), but the Tilley was one of the first things I packed. 

I even got a second one, just the same as my first one, to have a spare .... (and so it begins ... :ahhh).

I still have the Swisstool and the Signal, and I thought those two cover everything the Rebar does, like replaceable cutters and dedicated drivers etc ...

And I really like the Evo28, it's the first SAK that was able to take the place of my trusty Swisschamp (which I also brought along to Austria, be it in my camera bag).

I've always wanted a Tilley.  I may finally succumb to the urge this year.  I was wondering if anyone here has a Montana Fedora, and if so, would share your thoughts on it.  Cooler weather is around the corner and I was thinking of trying one out.

Been looking closer at Tilley and think I may have decided on the TTW2 Tec-Wool hat.  Now I just have to decide what to sell to pay for it  :think:  :rofl:

Cool! My dad was always a "driving cap" style hat wearer during the cooler months.  I had considered that type as well.  Looks like you have a couple.  Could you recommend one?

The second row down? The black one I got as a gift, it’s from glock but I put a MT.o patch over their symbol, the black/white is from headblade, I lived off of their product, and that gray was my grandfathers.. I really don’t know my things on hats, sorry.

I have one of those leather hats, and yes they are quite expensive at around $80.00 each.

But very comfortable and virtually indestructible.

I have shaped mine for comfort and Ill take a picha when I get home and post it.

But its mostly winter wear, it gets way too hot in summer.

In summer I wear an Acubra hat, made from Rabbit pelts.
It breathes better and isn't so hot to wear, my favourite is the Cattleman, its higher and more comfortable to me.

When you are bald like me, ya needs ta wear a hat.
Nothing worse than a burnt scalp and its one thing you can easily get in Australia ....sunburn

This is an Acubra Cattleman  at around $160.00 it aint cheap
