As an owner of two Tilley Hats I am very happy in the sun.
There may be a Tilly Hat for every lifestyle.
In 2012 I visited my skin doctor for an annual check up. I was a new resident of Nevada and I had already gotten a few sunburns. As I was sitting in the exam room I saw a pamphlet for the Tilley Hat. It seemed like a stylish wide brim hat and there were many different looks available.
When the doctor asked if I had any questions I asked her if she recommended I wear a wide brim hat in the sun. It came highly recommended. At that point it was already decided. I was going to try out a Tilley Hat and see how I liked it.

The Tilly Hat has UPF 50+ protection from the sun which translates to fewer sunburns.
These are the two styles of Tilley Hat that I own myself. The TM10 is my first one. Then I got the LTM3. Each hat has its own advantages. As an example, the snaps on the LTM3 lets me look a bit more Australian. Right now I am limiting myself to just two Tilley Hats. There are a few other styles that I really like. But for now I just don't have the closet space for additional hats for summer. Perhaps when I put away my winter hats I will find the space for an additional Tilley Hat.
