Tilley T3 Cotton Duck Hat - Olive


Tilley T3 Cotton Duck Hat - Olive


Brand: Tilley
Weight: 140 g         20 reviews
The Tilley T3 Cotton Duck Hat is Ray's number one choice when choosing a hat to protect him from the sun and rain. It's the same model that Ray wears during his canoe trips and is the most sought-after Tilley Hat.

They are durable and versatile, so if you are going to eat your hat then make sure it's not this one! Available in olive green and handcrafted from rain and mildew resistant pre-shrunk 10 oz 100% cotton duck. This fabric is derived from an incredibly durable sailcloth that is still used in boating today.

Please refer to the sizing chart picture for your appropriate size.

To find your hat size, use a tape measure and draw it right around your head. For the most comfortable fit, please make sure that the bottom of the tape touches your eyebrows while resting straight around your head. Hold it there comfortably and do not pull tight. The Tilley Hat fits more comfortably than other hats. It’s designed to be worn low on your head and slightly loose. It should be held on by gravity. For the proper fit, you should be able to easily insert two fingers, flat, between the middle of your forehead and the front of the Hat. The Hat should be loose enough that you can rotate it to the left and right, and lift it up and down, without friction on your forehead. When it’s windy, use the cord.

  I purchased this hat for my husband. It arrived very quickly and was packed really well. We used the guide to measure it online and it hits perfectly. He has worn it loads of times and he loves it. The hat keeps him cool and keeps out the rain and is very comfortable to wear. I would highly recommend this hat as it does exactly what it says it does on the website. Well worth the money.

  I ordered the wrong size despite careful measuring of the recipients head. Had to return the first hat but I quickly received the next size down. The hat is fantastic quality. I brought it as a gift and he absolutely loves it.

  Great piece of kit. Already used in the rain and the sun this summer. Essential protection if you are like me and burn at the first glimpse of the sun.

  The T3 is the definitive Tilley Hat, mine was supplied in perfect working order, with both brims buttoned up. Tip - always ‘park’ the Hat with both brims buttoned up. On wearing, with both brims unbuttoned , the crown and brims will be crisp and as new. Very good value and service from Woodlore.

  Something to review after several years of use, so I guess two wearings is premature. Good fit and very well made.

  The Tilley T3 hat is excellent quality, built to last and just perfect in my head. Suitable for hiking, jungle trekking, fishing etc. This is my 11th order from this website and it is never disappointed me. Shipping service is no.1. Thanks to all Woodlore Staff for the excellent service.

  I am very pleased with my purchase. The hat seems to be excellent quality. Have not used in the rain yet but shades from the sun very nicely. It's comfy to wear and stays on your head. Have not used it in strong wind yet so have not used both cords. I have not attempted to wash it yet. I would suggest that the Tilley sizing recommendation as per the included instruction manual is also published on the Ray Mears shopping site. This is because it recommends allowing for your flat first two fingers to be able to be slipped between the head band and your forehead. It's a bit late to read that once the item has already been ordered and has arrived. Fortunately I ordered the perfect size in that respect.
