Tilley Travel and Adventure Clothing
Tilley Endurables, the Canadian company long recognized as the maker of high quality outdoor hats, was started in 1980 when Alex Tilley needed a good hat for sailing and couldn’t find one, and decided to make one himself. He spared no effort, sought advice from a milliner, sailmaker and hat maker, and, as he says “got it right”. Only afterwards, when he saw that he had an outstanding hat, did he decide to sell it through stores. The sale of the original hat, and expansion into a range of hats and travel ware, has benefited from Alex Tilley’s imagination and insistence on outstanding quality.
Tilley’s travel and adventure clothing is designed for the practical traveller, with ease of care, versatility, durability and security features. Functional and comfortable, the garments pack small yet look great straight out of the suitcase or backpack. Like the Tilley hats, Tilley clothing is made in Canada. We are pleased to offer garments from Tilley’s Different Drummer Legends and Venture Trek lines.
The Different Drummer Legends garments are made from 100% nylon that is wind resistant, treated for water and stain repellency. The material is a soft, durable, lightweight fabric that is very comfortable. The fabric provides excellent UV protection and is rated UPF 50+, the highest rating possible. Garments in the Different Drummer Legends line carry Tilley’s lifetime guarantee not to wear out. Guarantee details are included with each garment.
The Tilley Venture Trek fabric is 89% ripstop nylon with 11% polyurethane for durability, stretch and comfort with water repellent finish. This fabric is slightly stiffer than that used in the Different Drummer Legends, but with a bit more stretch and water repellency. Venture Trek garments will air dry in less than 5 hours with good ventilation. Although extremely durable, the Venture Trek line is not guaranteed for life.
Tilley Travel and Adventurer Clothing is designed for easy care, truly wash and wear. The clothing can be hand washed (cool) in a hotel sink and air dried overnight (or faster). Clothing air-dries more quickly if wrung out within an absorbent towel after hand washing. Tilley clothing benefits from being smoothed out and drip-dried on hangers in a well-ventilated area after being hand washed. The clothing can also be machine washed (cold), tumble dried (low). Do not iron the Venture Trek garments. Ironing is usually not necessary for the Different Drummer Legends, but if desired, iron using a low setting. To retain the water and stain repellency features, do not bleach, do not dry clean and do not use fabric softeners. If washing with other items, wash with like colors.
If your Tilley Different Drummer Legends clothing ever wears out, Tilley will replace it for free. ‘Wearing out’ means rubbing a hole through an item through abrasion. If a garment rips, Tilley will repair it as economically as possible for you. If a zipper breaks or such, send the item back to Tilley who will gladly repair it for you. Mail your garment, with $8.95 to cover shipping, directly to Tilley Endurables:
