Tilley Airflo Review

Apparel Pro Reviews

Bottom Line
The Tilley Airflo (tested the LTM6IS Tilley Airflo Hat with tuckaway neck protector and Insect Shield) is an excellent hat. It’s supremely comfortable, repels mild rain, stays put in the wind, and most importantly it offers great sun protection due to the wide brim, neck protector and UPF 50+ material. The Airflo is light, washable, and easy to convert from a normal brim hat to one with a neck protector with two optional modes. I have abused the hat over the past year, doing yard work, trail maintenance, camping trips, and it has been incredibly durable, with only a slight fraying by the neck protector tuck away. Tilley’s hats come with a lifetime guarantee against wear, and my old Tilley hat is going on 20 years strong.

I sure sign of a good sun hat is that the Melanoma International Foundation has endorsed the Tilley Endurables Hats And Clothing.

Overall Rating: 4.5 Flamin’ Chili Peppers

MSRP: $89

Brian has been part of the Mtbr team since 2007, where he has become an integral member of the review and test staff, specializing in technical articles. He likes to push the limits in all the sports he obsesses in, whether it's mountain biking, whitewater kayaking, extreme skiing, or sport climbing. He takes those same strengths and a good dose of insanity to his reviewing and writing on mountain biking products, creating technical, in-depth and hyperbolic articles. Whenever he's not on the bike, he might be found watching MotoGP racing, otherwise look for him out on extremely technical singletrack.

    Did that really just happen?

    Yep, made it through 53 years of being an outdoor guy (lots of sun), which according to my dermatologist I have done pretty good? Wear a hat, sunglasses, cover up and wear sunscreen!
