Brand Spotlight: Tilley

If you’re a seasoned hiker, chances are you’ve heard of Tilley.

Tilley overview

We’ve recently perfected our very own range of Tilley products here at Winfields Outdoors – so we thought it would be a great opportunity to share an overview of who they are, what they do and why we’re proud to stock Tilley hats. 

The Canadian brand was established back in 1980 by Alex Tilley. The founder created Tilley hats for sailing originally, which is why some of the hats still include two straps. This was so that sailors could prevent their hats from flying off at sea! 

Tilley hats are designed to be a lifetime investment, with every hat made to withstand tough environments and take durability to the next level – which is how the brand has been able to earn its sterling reputation as one of the best outdoor hat producers in the world. 

Once you’ve worn a Tilley hat, it’s more than likely that this piece of outdoor gear will feel indispensable for all of your future outdoor adventures.


Tilley’s passion for sustainability is one of the many reasons why we’re proud to offer a large selection of Tilley hats here at Winfields Outdoors. 

Becoming more sustainable has always been a priority for the brand and it’s safe to say that Tilley has set the tone for other outdoor clothing retailers. 

Tilley uses natural materials and sustainable fibres to make its hats, as well as recycled materials. The use of sustainable materials makes the quality of its products unparalleled, which is why Tilley confidently offers a Guarantee for Life with the majority of its hat selection (we’ll explain what is meant by that shortly). 

As of 2022, more than 65% of Tilley hats are now produced using recycled materials and sustainable fibres.

Guarantee for Life 

As we mentioned earlier, Tilley offers a Guarantee for Life programme for the majority of its hat products. 

What this means is that when you purchase one of the brand’s incredible hats that qualify for the Guarantee for Life programme,  you can rest assured that your new hat is protected from wear and tear, or any other reason that’s beyond your control. 

To access the Guarantee for Life, all you have to do is register your new hat through the Tilley website within 60 days of purchase. If you’ve recently bought a hat and you’re within the time threshold, click here to register your hat!
