NOTES:

Cana­dian ap­parel man­u­fac­turer Til­ley is well-known for its hats, and has been mak­ing them since 1984. Each hat’s la­bel bears the phrase “hand­crafted with Cana­dian per­snick­eti­ness” along­side a life­time guar­an­tee. The

LTM6 Air­flo is Til­ley’s best-sell­ing model. It fea­tures breath­able and wa­ter-re­sis­tant Sup­plex ny­lon fab­ric, plus a 3⁄4- inch polyester mesh around the crown for ad­di­tional ven­ti­la­tion. The brim is 31⁄ inches at front

2 and rear, with 21⁄ 2- inch sides and a foam core that al­lows the hat to float on wa­ter. We found the sweat­band on this hat to be par­tic­u­larly soft and com­fort­able, as well as mois­ture-wick­ing. The front and rear wind cords are a clever touch, and they can be tight­ened against the head by slid­ing the fish­er­man’s knot tied on the rear cord to re­move slack.

PROS:

Dual wind cords keep the hat from shift­ing dur­ing strong gusts

Se­cure hook-and-loop clo­sure on the large hid­den pocket keeps valu­ables from slid­ing out Huge range of sizes and col­ors to choose from

CONS:

The brim on our sam­ple seems to be a few de­grees off-cen­ter from the crown, caus­ing the hat to ap­pear slightly crooked no mat­ter how much we ad­just its po­si­tion. Shor ter brim sides limit sun pro­tec tion from cer tain an­gles
