Tilley TM10 Wide Brim Hat with Cooling Mesh
In 2012 I forked out the big bucks and bought this hat. The Nevada sun seems to be a little brighter than anywhere I had lived before. I felt like it was an investment in my health and happiness.
It is now 2015 and I am very happy with the decision I made to own the TM10 Wide Brim Hat. The cooling mesh releases heat that will build up under any hat. I like to dip the hat in water on real hot days to help keep my head cool.
Shop around, and then shop Tilley
Before I spent $80 on this hat I compared it's quality and features to comparable hats. There are cowboy hats, there are bucket hats and there are straw hats. It was really difficult to find a hat that could offer the protection from the sun and also last for years and years. It was nearly impossible to find a hat that was both durable, fashionable, functional and fit me comfortably.
This page is pretty much a sales page for the hat. If you click thru the links I provide then you will be taken to the product on Amazon's page. The price is unchanged for you and I will receive a small commission from them.
Sizing for the hat is 78% true to size for most customers. If you are concerned about sizing then I encourage you to go visit your local specialty sporting goods store that carry Tilley Hat's and try on the product. You should be able to fit two fingers between your forehead and the hat.
Once you have the sizing figured out for your head then I think you will find the price on Amazon to be extremely competitive and convent. It's not uncommon for the store location to increase the hats cost to offset the cost of staffing.
