"This new Hat is a little work of art." June Walls, Toronto, Ontario *GUARANTEED FOR LIFE *INSURED AGAINST LOSS *EXCELLENT SUN PROTECTION *REPELS RAIN *TIES ON IN THE WIND *MACHINE WASHABLE (WON`T SHRINK) Styled after the popular T5 and LTM5 Hats, the TH5 Hemp Hat features a semi-sloping brim for sun and rain protection and a high crown for ventilation. Why Hemp? Not only do our Hemp Hats look great, but they have a soft linen-like look with a 'tough as nails attitude'. In fact, Hemp is the world's strongest natural fibre. It is breathable, and naturally resistant to UV light, mould, mildew and salt water. Tilley Hemp fabric has been tested and certified as having a UPF 50+; this is the maximum UV protection rating given.
