This is ol leather.

Its seen many years of hard use, been swimming several times.
Copped hail, rain and being stomped on.
but a bit of leather conditioner every few months makes it suple and comfortable.

You cant see the shape real good, but it rolls forward over my eyes so I look from under the edge, with nust a little movement I can cut off the sun and see.

The back fully covers my neck.
This old workhorse is a beauty

Well seeing that ebay had 15% off everything today I couldn't resist any longer.  I ordered a Tilley TTW2 in olive.   Pics and thoughts on arrival!  :woohoo:

I got an Echo backpack blower this season.  A great investment.  Now instead of a whole day of raking it takes me just a couple hours of blowing.  Even does a decent job on powder snow.  :tu:

I don't know how large your yard is but a shopvac works fairly well.  Just put those hose on the opposite end and off you go.  I also was out blowing leaving and sweeping.  Makes fast work of my small yard.

Just found this thread.  My good old olive T3 has been a companion on many a hike, dog walk, shoot, camp and paddle over the years. I have however just ordered a new one!  Not because I've worn out my old one (though no-one could blame it, if it was) but because they've got a sale on ATM and I ordered a different colour.

Sweet looking colour on the new one  :tu:.

I own two olive green ones, one for EDC and one as back-up (by now, you guys know how my brain works, right ...  ::)).

All I can say is that I really like my Tilley hat(s)  :tu:.

I used to wear a cap most of the time, but after I bought myself a Tilley the cap stays home when I go for a nature hike, or on vacation.  I still use the cap to go to work,  or for daily use.  But for hiking, nothing beats the Tilley.

Thanks - I know I will have one before summer gets here. My current hiking hat is a similar one with a back cover that protects your ears and neck from the sun.  :cheers:
