I wanted this hat for walking in our unpredictable British weather(ok, it is predictable, it's going to rain). I visited my local Ellis Brigham but unfortunately they didn't have my size in stock but I was able to establish the size I needed, which I ordered from the website. The hat is perfect. Not too lightweight that it would get blown around. It feels really comfy. It feels QUALITY. I like the padding in the top and the handy little pocket in the top. The first hat I've ever had that comes with a manual. An actual care manual. It looks like it will last me a lifetime. Fantastic.
A good hat
I purchased this hat in preparation for bicycle touring in Ireland and mainland Europe over the summer. I'm leaving tomorrow but so far this hat has been amazing. The size is perfect, the style is good and it has the Tilley quality they're known for.
