Hats reviewed:

-TH5 Hemp Hat (Unisex)

Tilley hats arrive with a four-page owner’s manual with important information about how the hat was conceived, how to wear it, and the big-hearted Tilley guarantee.

The secret pocket in the crown is a perfect hiding place for your house key and plant purchasing money when garden touring. The hidden pocket also contains eight brag tags - interesting, fun, talking points to use in future conversations.

Tilley hats are available in a large number of unisex styles and a comparison chart is provided on the company website to make selection easier. Each hat is available in numerous sizes.

The tuck away, adjustable, front and back wind cord offers two ways to secure Tilley hats, depending on the degree of breeziness. Secure it under the chin for high gales or behind the head for light breezes.

Tilley hats are recommended to sit low on the head and be slightly loose (about the width of two fingers flat against the forehead).
