    Anyone else wear a Tilly hat out in the sun? I couldnt work in the hot days without it.. I start to feel sick if I wear just a ball cap. Its great to wear with rain gear too, keeps the water out of your neck and face. (http://www.tilley.com)

    I bought one last year. It is great. Just throw it in the wash and it looks/feels like new.

    Well worth the money. I have had one for years. Heat index has been over 100 here for weeks. Just soak the Tilley in water and you are good to go. Best thing is it stays on in the wind. Always windy here.

    Same here, 100+ temp, lots of rain and wind.. I just wear a ball cap. But there's other things I need first. (chaps, gloves, edger, trailer) and the $65 hat can wait until next year.. then I'll give it a try! :)

    Looks like quality stuff too..

    I'm gettin one, life time warranty on a hat? Plus "insurance" against loss or damage, sell you one for half price. Wonder how many wal-mart hats you will buy over the years.
