Tilley Endurables

Fifty Sense Seal of Approval

Tilley Endurables have been know for their travel hats for years. There is a reason why they are considered one of the best hat manufacturers in the world- they stand behind their products. They are committed to making sure they have a hat that fits the consumer perfectly and they work to keep the customer for life.

How many hats do you own that are insured against loss, guaranteed for life not to wear out and fit to exactly your size head? We have had Tilley hats for years and had the pleasure of trying out some different styles. Two will be review when they are on the market.

The Tilley 'Soft Shell' Winter

Many of our testers live in the northern climates. How wonderful to find a great looking hat made for the winter season. This stylish hat had unique tuck-away ear warmers that add staying power in the wind.

This hat has a secret pocket large enough for credit cards, cash or a hotel key which helps prevent theft when traveling. It is also lightweight, crushable, packable, and can be thrown into the machine washer and dryer

The Tilley T3 Hat

You can’t go wrong with their most sought-after Tilley Hat has a medium-sized brim that snaps up in the Aussie manner. This is our favorite canoe hat because it has excellent sun protection, repels rain, ties in the wind and is machine washable. We would definitely take this on safari too. Two colour combinations feature dark underbrims which help to reduce reflection from water, snow and sand. A lifetime investment in sun protection and smart appearance.

Fast-Drying Tilley 'Travel' Socks

Were you aware that Tilley has more than just hats? Check out their website to see some exciting travel accessories. We tested their comfy socks that are guaranteed hole-free for 3 years and to dry overnight, virtually always.

Not just for travel! Your feet will thank you for providing arch support and moisture ecape panels for a dry and comfortable fit. Our mid-calf length socks will wick away moisture and help prevent blisters. Two pairs are all you need to travel the world - wash them in a sink in the evening, wring in a towel, and they`ll be dry for morning. They even have Al[ajsan to reduce odor causing bacteria and UV protection.

Tilley Travel Underwear

Now this “hat” company has underwear. Tilley Endurables can now be known for not just hats, but travel wear. Travelers have a right to insist upon dependable clothing that can withstand whatever the world has to offer. Function is important also, but not at the expense of comfort, and they aim for clothing you can launder in a hotel sink in the evening, hang to dry, and wear neat and ready to go to breakfast.

We tested both the men’s and woman’s briefs. We found they are fast-drying and sweat-defying, they will neither chafe nor bind. The fabric wicks away perspiration better than cotton to keep you cooler and drier in the summer, and warmer in the winter. The stain, odor and bacteria resistant fabric is lightweight and long-wearing. It keeps its shape and appearance, never riding up after repeated wear.
