The One Thing Nudists Will Wear... A Tilley Hat

Tilley Continues Sponsorship as the official Hat of American Association of Nude Recreation Annual Convention

For the 7th year in a row, Tilley is proud to be the Official Hat of the American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR) Annual Convention. The 2009 AANR Annual Convention will be held August 10-16 in Depew, Oklahoma.

The AANR members know a thing or two about sun protection and appreciate the benefits associated with wearing a Tilley Hat. All Tilley Hats (including the four new styles debuting at the upcoming Outdoor Retailer Show) are certified UPF 50+ and are guaranteed for life not to wear out and come with a 2-year, all perils 50-percent deductible insurance policy against loss or theft. Tilley Hats also float, are water-repellent, crushable and packable, have a secret pocket in the crown, tie on in the wind, won't shrink, are machine washable, and come with a 4-page owner's manual…a good read, and it's available in seven languages!

Recreationists may decide to ditch the clothes, but a Tilley Hat and a smile are a must when practicing safe sun.

About The Tilley Hat / Alex Tilley
The Tilley Endurables story began in 1980 when Alex Tilley was sailing his thirty-foot sloop on the waves of Lake Ontario and his hat blew off, again. This was a regular problem for Alex, so he decided to develop a hat that was long lasting, comfortable, sun- protective and would suit the needs of sailors.

More than 305,000 Tilley Hats are manufactured every year, primarily in Toronto, Ontario. Alex's attention to detail, design and production goes into every Hat that is made and sold by Tilley Endurables – Alex calls it Canadian persnicketiness.

Tilley Hats are sold though five family-owned stores and 2,600 associated retailers in 18 countries worldwide.
