Nice hike today, with some unexpectedly pleasant weather. Cloudy, but not too hot.





The Tilley was a valued companion. Not the coolest hat out there--yes, that's sweat on the front brim--but I do like the durability and versatility.  :tu:

If it's a particularly warm day, I will sometimes give my hat a good soaking in water. As the wet hat dries it provides some relief.

I bought one of those blue towel thingys, you wet it up then snap it really hard and it’s suppose to get much cooler? Didn’t even think of it, should have used it, oops.

Went out for lunch today. Since I was wearing my old Tilley, I chose a casual spot....





The lunch room was uncrowded, but service was DIY...





Still, I like eating anywhere a Tilley is acceptable....

Well I just ordered a T5MO in khaki! I usually wear a ball cap type had in the summer but I wanted to try something that would keep the sun off my ears.  Pics on arrival (assuming I can figure out the a imgur app.)

Tilley Hat thread bump.  :D

It's already hot here in Texas. Just ordered a Tilley Hiker's Hat, T4MO-1, in khaki . It comes with a cooling insert you soak in ice water and put up in the top of the hat to cool you. Hear it works decently.

This will be Tilley hat number 2 after my LTM6 in multicam.

Never heard of this brand before bumping into this thread, though recently bought a Buff hat that looks quite like it and I love it really - great for all sorts of outdoor adventures


Dream. Wish. Leave nothing undone. Repeat.

For a hike in the mountains, I would prefer a baseball cap.

I wear baseball caps when doing errands around town. For outdoor play, it's a Tilley or similar brimmed hat.

The exception, sometimes, is Winter. Sometimes in Winter I'll wear a baseball cap with a wool or fleece beanie over the top of that: insulation plus a bit of glare relief.

Similarly, I occasionally pair up a Buff fo sun protection with a baseball cap. If I lived in an area with more rain.....maybe a baseball cap that could fit under a rain jacket hood. I've done that fishing, too. Although I've also stood out in the rain with a Tilley dripping water down the back of my neck....... (Actually, the Tilley does a decent job of rain protection. As it gets wet, the fibers swell and shed rain pretty well.)

But in general, I like to protect my ears and neck from the sun, so a wide-brimmed hat like the Tilley is my go-to.

The hat is ancient...... I have no idea what model it is or if they still make it. Just your basic canvass Tilley with a double chin strap (very effective) and a few brass vents. I love it and hope it lasts the rest of my life (good chance there.).

The chin strap has long since been replaced with paracord. No real reason, I just had some on hand.

The stick is a Komperdell Camera staff. I saw it in an REI and really liked it. It has been a great stick. I broke the cork ball on the top (entirely my fault). I called Komperdell and they had a new one in the mail to me within a couple days. No charge. Just excellent customer support.

I added some duct tape and bank line to the stick for repair/first aid use. I do this with most of my sticks.  :tu:
