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.
