We are all being encouraged to head outdoors and exercise more in a bid to see off the dreaded COVID-19. But the appeal to take those steps lessens when you are greeted with cold and wet weather and so being kitted out properly becomes a priority.
There are lots of outdoor specialists out there who market trendy practical wear. But for those who want something a little more special, then look no further than the latest creation from hat experts at Tilley.
The Canadian firm is always looking to step up and the new T1 wool hat is first class. It has been designed as a modern remaster of the Tilley original T1 bucket hat, but made from a warmer material to keep your head cosy during those cold walks out.
Using the original Tilley silhouette and Swiss made Schoeller® wool fabric, the hat is bonded with a C_Change™ membrane, which is not only heat reactive and water repellent, but also breathable to help regulate the body temperature.
Clever it is! And better still the brim is wide enough to keep the driving rain and snow from your face, but not so wide that it blows off your head.
And it is very stylish too, coming in beautiful olive, grey herringbone and charcoal mix colours and it is certified UPF 50 +.
Tilley enthusiasts will be pleased to know that the unisex hats also have the infamous “secret’’ pocket on the inside so you can stash your essentials for later and a Hydrofil® sweatband for added comfort.
But the best thing to say about the hats is that like all Tilley products, they are guaranteed for life, what more can you ask for?!
