Cotton. The word sends chills down any outdoorsman's spine. Getting caught in a nasty downpour wearing cotton is beyond miserable. Cotton is going through a transformation and through technological advances with certain types having some impressive wicking ability.
The Tilley Organic Airflo T5MO hat is made almost solely of pre-shrunk organic cotton. Organic cotton uses no toxic chemicals, synthetic fertilizers, or pesticides in its manufacture. Tilley has designed the T5MO with a ¾ inch mesh strip in the crown to accentuate wicking. The brim gently slopes down to help keep the sun out of your eyes.
The biggest fear with the T5MO is it will soak up all the sweat from your forehead and leave your noggin wet and uncomfortable. Tilley built in an anti-sweat band that works amazingly well. It captures the perspiration from your forehard and wicks it away quickly.
Tilley offers a couple other neat features to the T5MO. The hat floats in case it somehow ends up in the drink. The small pocket under the brim is ideal for stowing some cash, hotel key, toilet paper, etc. The hat gives you UPF 50+ to provide sun protection.
The Tilley Organic Airflo T5MO hat gives the comfort of cotton, wicking ability, and some other unique features. Tilley offers a lifetime warranty if you ever wear out your T5MO. If you do, send its remains to Tilley and it will be replaced for free. If you lose your hat within the first two years of purchase, Tilley will replace it at half-price. The Tilley Organic Airflo T5MO list at $77.The T5MO is equipped with a wind cord to prevent you from losing it during strong winds and other missteps.
