Constructed of lightweight, breathable Supplex nylon with a cooling 3/4" AIRFLO mesh band in the crown, this topper provides excellent sun protection, ventilation and moisture management - and may very well be the last hat you ever buy!
Designed with a medium brim that snaps up Aussie style, the Tilley Endurables LTM6 Airflo Hat features a 3/4-inch polyester mesh in the crown for coolness and comfort during hot days and strenuous activities.

I am a big guy and the 8+ fit me fine. It breathes well, has taken a beating, covered in saltwater, sweat, dirt, etc. It keeps on performing. Thank you Tilley hat, for showing me that hats are awesome!

Size: The instructions say that for a properly-fitting hat, you must be able to get two fingers between the forehead and the headband. I started with a size 7-3/8 and worked up to a 7.75. I could still not get two fingers between my forehead and the headband. So I finally called Tilley. I told them I can get two fingers all the way around that hat except for the front of my head. I said the hat already about touches my ears, how much bigger do I need to go? She said people's heads are different shapes and the two-finger rule apparently doesn't apply to all. She asked me if I could turn the hat without much friction and I said I could. She said if I was comfortable with the fit, my hat was fine despite the two-finger rule.
I then told the gal at Tilley's that I ordered the hat from Amazon and it came all scrunched up in a bag and the brim appears to be damaged. I asked if the brim would bounce back. She said no. The wires inside that brim were probably permanently damaged. I told her that I'm not blaming Amazon for the hat coming scrunched up in a bag. I too am a seller on Amazon, and the blame needs to squarely rest with the seller sending these hats to Amazon's warehouses (not Tilley's). That seller is scrunching these hats inside plastic bags to save space (Amazon charges sellers by the square inch for space). Sellers who provide Amazon with these hats need to provide them in boxes that protect the hat. And I have made Amazon aware of this by giving that seller a 1-star rating.
So moral of the story is to check the rating of the seller before buying this hat. This hat is great which you can read in all the other reviews. I did buy one of my smaller-sized hats where Amazon was the seller, and it arrived fine. When I tried replacing that hat with a larger size, Amazon as a seller was out of the hat so I picked another seller and disaster.
I also have a top end of the spectrum sized cranium.
I measured my head at 25 and 1/2 inches and tried the size 8, which was too small. So, I ordered the 8+ and it fits perfectly.
Tilley hats are designed to fit low, so when you measure your head get that measurement and add at least an inch to it if not 1.5 and get the corresponding size.
The hat fits great, it's comfortable, it's secure, feels well made. I look forward to wearing this hat for years to come.
Cost can be an issue with these hats, however I will say that my older one has been through the wringer. Dumped in the lake, dirty from my filthy hands, and stored in the backseat of my truck year round and it washes up to look like new, As long as you don't lose it it will outlive just about any hat.
Once you decide to ditch the baseball cap and get a real hat, you will not be disappointed with the Tilley!
The hat offers great protection. While my arms burned, no part of my head got sunburned except a bit of my neck I missed while applying sunscreen. The brim kept the sun out of my eyes and could be used to shield me from the occasional gust of wind or dust.
The chin strap works well even if it isn't super tight. Our first day had gusts of wind up to 50 miles per hour, and my hat stayed on without worry. While hiking canyons, I loosened the strap so I could easily slip the hat off and on as we darted in and out of shade. While off, the hat sat behind my head, keeping my hands free for water, camera, etc.
Bottom line, great hat for hiking and other outdoor activities.
