The LTM6 AIRFLO® Tilley Hat is designed with a wide brim
and 3/4" polyester mesh built into the crown. This lightweight Hat offers
superb ventilation and is made from Tilley Nylamtium®, a strong
water-and-mildew resistant form of nylon.
Fabric made from 100% supplex
nylon Tilley Nylamtium®. Mesh made from 100% polyester.
The fabrics 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.
You still need SPF 30 sunscreen and sunglasses with UV filters! Children
especially need the UV filters in their sunglasses as non-filtering
glasses will increase the size of their pupils, allowing even more of the
damaging UV rays to enter. This often causes cataracts and retinal
problems later in life and has happened in Alex Tilley's own family.
Although Tilley Hats block 98% of UV rays, some rays COULD enter through
Tilley hand-sews each Hat using very strong thread; all seams are
lock-stitched so they won't unravel. The brass is from Britain and is the
best there is. All Hats are made with such care and dedication that one is
as good as another.
