This is the inside of a fishing hat I've had for about eight years now. Quite simply I could not do without this piece of fishing equipment. If you can't read the label in this photo, here's what it says:
_THE TILLEY HAT- THE FINEST IN ALL THE WORLD
INSURED AGAINST LOSS, GUARANTEED FOR LIFE
(Replaced Free if it ever wears out)
It floats, ties on (front and/or back), repels rain, blocks UV rays and it won't shrink. It comes with eight "brag tags" in the security pocket plus a four page owners manual.
Ten ounce USA treated cotton duck; The best British Brass Hardware; Hydrofoil headband for superb anti-sweat comfort; handcrafted with canadian persnicketiness.
Machine/hand wash warm frequently (sweat permanently discolours fabric). Reshape, Air dry, then re-stretch over knee._
I love how those canadians spell color...
Anyhow, I've lost this hat - twice. Both times it was replaced free of charge. The ties for wind protection are some of the most elegant simple pieces I've ever seen on a hat, it floats (trust me I've tried it), and the stash pocket in the top is perfect for a fishing license. If you want a hat that does it all call the folks at Tilley Endurables. You will not be disappointed.
