Looks like the T2 may be discontinued. There are plenty other models to choose from, however.

Both Mr. cthoops (aka "Pegu Club") and I have Tilleys and absolutely love them.

Looks like Tilley have really changed their line, but the older models are still available from plenty of places on the web.

Tilley. I even wore mine for a year in Iraq. By the way, I also have a Fedora made by Tilley that I wear to work in the winter.

Re: Stylish and effective sailing hat

Last time I neglected to wear a hat while sailing, or a doorag while scuba diving....I couldn't brush my hair for 4 days. My bald spot was so sunburned and tender.....

Re: Stylish and effective sailing hat

If I could say one thing about the tilley - which is pretty hard - it is that it stays on your head in high winds without being tight. I hate tight hats, they give me a headache. My tilley stays on, is loose fitting and keeps my head cooler than any other hat I worn.

Re: Stylish and effective sailing hat

On the way to Abracadabra a few weekends ago for the first invitational race of the season, we stopped at the local West Marine to see if they had anything new in the way of headgear. I had yet to have found The Perfect Hat, and the day promised to be bloody hot and uncomfortable. Lo and behold, I discovered this: Columbia Bora Bora Boonie Hat



I don't know about "stylish," but it's so comfortable I tend to forget I'm even wearing it. Neither my neck, my ears nor my nose burned, and I was comfortable all day. My wife bought one, too, and had the same experience. We love these hats.

Re: Stylish and effective sailing hat

Jim, the reason that hat sells for 1/2 the price of a Tilley?

Is, nothing personal, because you have an average head. "One size fits all" it says.

Unlike Tilley, who make hats in real hat sizes, not just s-m-l or "OSFA".

I don't buy socks, hats, or belts that say "OSFA".

Re: Stylish and effective sailing hat

One of the best hot weather hats I own is one purchased many, many years ago in Florida. Nearly every flats guide in Florida owns one, and at that time they were known as a Florida Guide Hat. Now they're known as an updowner hat, they've been modified a bit and available, in regular hat sizes, at Bass Pro Shops.



There are several variations of this design, some of which come with a lanyard that clips to your shirt collar to prevent you from loosing the hat if it blows off. The back cover of some models, including the one I own, folds up and is held in place with Velcro.



I also own the West Marine hat pictured in some of the above posts and it works great. It's not a OSFA hat and from what I recall, comes in sizes S,M,L,XL.

Cheers,

Gary

Oh, a French Foreign Legion Baseball Cap. (G)

Nice to know they've got a shorter name now.
