Everyone seems to be looking for the perfect hat, and I finally found mine.

About a year ago I bought a Tilley T3. Iíd read a lot about them and knew a couple of people who owned one, so I decided to give one a try. I was in Omaha on business and visited a local store that carried a variety of Tilley styles. After trying a few on I decided the T3 was the one for me. The brim is large enough to protect my face and neck from the sun and itís flexible enough and formed in such a way that it doesnít interfere with my string when I shoot my bow. Iíve put it through some pretty tough field tests over the past year including a 2 week stay in Uganda and itís held up to everything Iíve thrown at it. One trip through the washing machine and it looks almost new.

If youíre still looking for a great hat, I suggest that you give Tilley a try.

Here are a couple of pics of the Ugandan field test:

Brian, If I might ask and assuming you're the one with the pickaxe in hand, what is the knife on your belt?
Thanks,

Bit the bullet a couple years ago and bought one after looking at them for a couple years (price held me back). I will never own another brimmed hat for working outside. Great Hats!!!!!

I own a Tilley TH4 (Brown Hemp) and am enjoying in on my stump shoots. I may give it a try on a hunt someday.

Mine's been to Uganda, Belize (twice), Cambodia, China and various parts of Mississippi. Good value in the long run.

I have had mine for over two years now and it has become my standard wear for the outside. It fits great and is made with outstanding quality

They're pretty good. I had two of them, the only thing you need to watch out for is, they get a sweat stain pretty quick along the brow area, but whatever you do, don't use a stain remover. The hat will fall apart at that area when washed. I know, it happened to me. Tilley replaced the hat free of charge, but, the 2nd one still got a pretty good stain along the fore head area, and I have not used stain remover, just simple washing and it still came apart a little.

I'll not get another one, because I've found a great hat that can take a beating and stay together ( a good ole' boonie from the army, navy supplier) and it cost 1/3 of a Tilley.

But they're still a good hat, Tilley just needs to add a little more material to the fore head area.

Not saying that Wolfhaven did not have an issue with his hats, but I have washed mine many times on the gentle cycle with my regular detergent and have had no issues with the hat falling apart or showing any signs of weakening.
