A formidable hat for great protection from the elements.

The LT5B Tilley Hat offers a medium brim and is made with a breathable nylon fabric featuring a weather and stain resistant finish.

The tightly woven fabric provides great abrasion resistance and continues to keep its great shape no matter what situation you put it in.

Excellent breathability ensures you stay at your best no matter what the conditions and superior comfort means once it's on you wont want to take off.

A secret pocket allows for a small amount of storage and a dark under-brim finish offers great glare protection.

Front Brim: 2 5/8", Back: 2 3/4", Sides: 2 1/8"

Tilleys are replaced free if they ever wear out, shrink or fall apart. 

A layer of closed-cell foam in the crown, and sometimes in the brim, provides the Tilley`s positive buoyancy.

When it`s calm, the Wind Cord stays hidden in the crown. When there`s a breeze, place the part with the sliding knots behind your head. When it`s windy or you`re sailing, use the chin part too.

The Lighterweight Nylamtium® Tilleys are excellent at repelling rain.

The fabric and style of all Tilley Hats have been certified to block 98 percent of harmful UVA/UVB radiation and deliver an ultraviolet factor (UPF) of 50+, the maximum rating given.

Men's Clothing size guide

Measuring tips

Take your actual body measurements as they are more accurate than measuring over your clothes or shoes.

Collar: Measure around the base of the neck where the collar sits.

Chest: Measure the chest at the fullest part, placing the tape close up under the arms.

Waist: Measure the natural waistline.

Inside Leg: Measure from the crotch to where your trouser is normally worn on the shoe.

Jacket Length: Measure from the centre back of your neck to your hemline. The length measurement will vary depending on the style.

Feet: Use a ruler or tape measure to measure your foot (from the heel to the tip of your longest toe) Be sure to measure both feet. Many people have feet of different sizes. Fit to the larger of the two.

Was it worth the money? Well I couldn't find another hat as stylish, as light or as smart so I had to have it!

Tilley hat

Been put off buying one for years due to the price but they are a fantastic hat - fit, style, quality. Finally bit the bullet and bought one - not disappointed. Still not sure they are worth the price though!

Tilley Magic

A very comfortable hat. Comes with ingenious cord system to ensure it stays on your head even in windy conditions. This is my second Tilley hat; I had my other one for about three years then lost it -- unfortunately outside the 2-year "replacement if lost" guarantee that Tilley offer on all new hats.

Tilley LT5B Breathable Hat

I have 2 of these hats, and from first putting each on I have to scream out loud they are the most comfortable hats I've ever worn, and brilliant in all weather conditions - and with such absolute style and quality too.
Expensive ? Yes ! But you get what you pay for, and in this case, these hats are definitely the Rolls Royce of hats.
I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Chapeau Tilley splendide!

I bought a Tilley hat after having tried a friend's. Go Outdoors staff were most helpful and knowledgeable, especially regarding the fit. Tilley advise a loose fit, with the hat kept secure by the straps. After much discussion I decided to ignore this and bought a size that felt normally comfortable. Having since worn it on several extremely hot days I am happy to report that is comfortable and secure (albeit on a very windy boat trip I was pleased to use the straps!) and keeps its shape well.

The LT5B Tilley

Bought the tilley after much pressure from my son who has had one for a few years .I am delighted with mine and although expensive is worth the money .Son is jealous as his earlier one now discontinued does not have a tilley tab on the back .

Best investment ever

I bought a new Tilley to replace my last one which was well over 20 years old and had been around the world. The new one fits like a glove and shouldn't shrink if it gets wet.
While site seeing in The Canaries I was tapped on the shoulder and asked "is that a Tilley you're wearing". We are still firm friends after many years.
Hopefully some honest person will read the postcode in my old hat and return to my previous address.
Well done Gooutdoors for stocking great products.

Tilley Hat

Great Hat

I do a lot of water sports, canoeing, kayaking, sailing, narrow boating. Last week we had force 8 gusts and heavy rain. The Hat stayed on and kept my head dry. In the afternoon I had to drive a planing fast boat. So the wind was combined with driving into the teeth of it at 30mph. The Hat still stayed on. The next day was still windy but the sun shone. I am a bit of a ginger and burn easy but all was good. The tops of my ears remain unburned.

Quality Product

Bought this for Summer use but having done some research its pretty good at keeping the rain out as well. Lightweight and breathable. You can get it into shape so you dont feel like your wearing a cheap floppy hat. I'm pretty self conscious when it comes to wearing headwear but I got the thumbs up from my daughter, so I must look okay wearing it.

Tilley LT5B Breathable Nylon Hat

Excellent, cool comfortable hard wearing and stylish. Great for hot summer days, will buy a heavier one for English winters.
It is my 3rd Tilley hat, would not consider any other brand.

Tilley LT5B Breathable Nylon Hat

Great snorkelling hat. Just back from two weeks in Sri Lanka and this hat went through everything including wearing it whilst snorkelling. It got really grubby with the dust on safari's. Just got it out of the washing machine - good as new. It's a really comfortable fit and the sweat band soaks up a lot without feeling uncomfortable. Expensive but worth every penny.

A good hat

Tough, comfortable, practical. Keeps the sun and rain out of the eyes, And breathable enough to be comfortable on a typical English summer's day. Really does stand being squashed in the bottom of a bag, and comes back to shape.
Too cold to touch for winter use, which is why I also have a Tilley wool hat.
