Why, when Tilley will replace it for free?

Re: Hat recommendations

I did a little shopping --- e-bay, amazon, etc --- Tilley's must be well loved the going price is $65 or more and no one is selling a used one...

I also seem to recall my Tilley being fully insured against loss, but looks like now they pay only 50% towards replacement and only for 2 years.

Did they change their policy?

Seems like it. But, you're now going to replace it for the same cost of buying another cheap hat, if you lose it. Still a great deal.

For others that are searching, not all Tilly's are the same. There are approx 30 models of men's wide-brim hats alone and more for women.

Some are more rigid, but tend not to have much ventilation. Others are flexible and cooler, with net-like ventilation.

Re: Hat recommendations

Bought one of these at the local Home Depot for $10. Has a foam panel in the top so it floats, provides good shade, looks decent, folds flat for easy packing. My buddy has a Tilley and for the life of me I cannot see any way that it is even worth twice what I paid for this, let alone seven or eight times!

Style is certainly compatible. However, canvas doesn't sound like a great material for sweating and I'm curious if it can be washed without distorting. "One size fits most", never fits me. Tilley's are sold by specific hat size.

Yes they do, but it works only if the floating part is kept in the hat itself. If you take it out to wash the hat and then forget to put it back in, it will sink like a rock! Not that that has ever happened

The Tilley is machine washable: the Home Depot hat is not. Apples and oranges!
