It looks like the 3 Day Assault. It's an awesome pack. Their military line is top notch. I'm bummed they don't sell packs to fit the Nice frame anymore

Looks like I am done with Tilley.  This is the Tag inside my latest hat.

You'll have to find old stock.  Not surprised at companies sending manufacturing off shore.  I"m sure there are many available in stores that are made in Canada still.  Be a good time to locate and buy.  So going forward tho, any warranties will be off shore made product?

Well, that's very disappointing.  I very much I doubt they'll suddenly get a lot cheaper to buy  :-\

Allegedly they now have multiple tiers of products, and the China made ones are manufactured at a lower price point for big box retailers.

I believe some are and will continue to be made in Canada.  But, I was already at the point where I was looking at other brands.  With this development, I think it's time I start looking again- I should have a few years at least before I need to replace this one.

Maybe I'll go back to Akubra.   :think:

It saddens me to see an iconic company like Tilley going the same road like lots of others went on before them :-[

The new owner might be the reason  :dunno:

However, I think the T3 is still made in Canada.
At least the one I've got recently is  :tu:

Looks like I paid over $100 CDN for my Paddler's hat last year, which doesn't fit properly and is made in China.

smurf that, they have enough of my $$.

I could swallow $40 for a China made hat, but over a hundred.  Nope nope nope nope.

It is such a shame that another company is going the “Made in China” path.  I had been looking at getting a sun hat and Tilley was on I was looking at.  According to REI’s website the Wanderer is still made in Canada, but I’d want to verify first.

Nice hat, a little steep if you ask me, especially if your getting a made in china, I mean don’t get me wrong, my everyday rough wear hat is a made in china but I think I only paid $12 for it, and it’s lasted me about 12yrs.. now for a light sun hat I bought a dickies a few years back, it’s much lighter the brim is maybe an inch wider, and the top of the sides has a mesh all the way around, and I think I only paid $25 for that, there’s pics of it on the first page of this subject, here’s a pic of my every day, I have a second which I added three buttons around the back to add a drop cloth to keep the sun off my neck if it came time for it, it stores in a mesh pocket in the top of the hat,

You should be pretty safe on that one.  Given what I know now, I'd strongly suggest looking at the tag before you buy.

My Tilley hiker's hat couldn't keep me cool this summer even with the blue thing you soak in water to keep cool. I'm in the market for a big ass straw hat. 

It's hotter this year than the last couple of years.
