Tilley – Inspired by life outdoors

Hats off to this classic, Canadian headwear and clothing maker!

Since their founding in 1980, Tilley have made a commitment to crafting products of the highest quality, we still have customers coming in regularly with Tilley hats that were bought upwards of 30 years ago and have looked after their owner’s head all over the world. Despite being bleached by scorching heat and soaked through repeatedly for years and years, these hats never seem to die. Durability, innovation and performance are at the root of everything Tilley produce.


A legacy built from a sailing hat

Proudly Canadian since 1980! Four decades ago a need for a tough sailing hat became the birth of the Iconic Tilley hat. Since then Tilley have continued to craft and design with the same thought and care, lasting performance, durability and authenticity. You know a Tilley hat when you see it. Today, their products carry the same stamp of quality, care and craftsmanship that they are very proud of. It is hard to venture into the outdoors, be it hillwalking, paddling, camping or simply getting away on a holiday without seeing a Tilley proudly perched upon somebody's head.


The Signature Grommet

You can find the classic grommet (a ventilation hole) across our range of Tilley hats, it has been their classic mark of function and quality for more than  a generation.

Craftsmanship and Features

It takes 23 pairs of hands to make a Tilley hat, a precise and practiced process. Each Tilley hat is designed and made so that it can do the following – stay on in the wind thanks to their good fit a drawstring chin strap, be unsinkable thanks to lightweight materials and a removeable foam pad in the roof of the hat, last indefinitely thanks to tough materials and an excellent quality build, protect its wearer from the elements thanks to water resistant treatments and again… excellent materials, and lastly, the hat still needs to look good. We believe that with these beautiful materials and features all thrown in and with such a highly regarded legacy, they certainly look awesome.
