The Real Strong One: Tilley’s Hemp Hat

Hemp (Cannabis sativa) has been prized and cultivated for its strong, durable fibre (and for its nutritious seeds) for thousands of years. Hemp would seem a natural material for Tilley, already well-known for their long-lasting, outperforming hats. One of their latest hemp creations, the medium-brim TH5 Hemp Hat, provides all the functionality and classic lines of a Tilley in a tough 100% hemp construction.

Much like cotton, hemp fades in the sun, meaning the TH5 Hemp Hat will develop its own character over time and the adventures taken. And it may look and feel like linen, but Tilley’s hemp is tough as nails, and won’t let you down on trail after trail. We found the weave to be exceptionally breathable and very comfortable next to skin.
