ThePolaris hat from Tilley is new for spring/summer 2019 and features 3XDRY® Bio PFC freefinishing technology, from Swiss fabric specialistSchoeller, that is based on renewable resources.  Mimicking the protective plant cuticle that repels morning dew and heavy rain it fends off water and dirt so effectively it literally runs of the fabric, while the interior absorbs moisture and wicks it away – as a result it is incredibly quick to dry as well as offering the wearer UPF50+ sun protection.

Other ingenious features include a hidden sun shield which drops down to protect neck and shoulders and a nifty little Velcro tab at the back where sunglasses can be stored when not in use.  There is also a Tilley deboss moisture wicking sweatband and reflective wind cord and embossed logo tab which can be seen in low light conditions.  Thick foam under brim stops it from flapping in the wind and of course the hat floats! – there is also the iconic secret pocket to store valuables. The Polaris Hat is also Guaranteed for life, a testimony of its craftsmanship and the mark of quality on most of the Tilley collection!

The Polaris is the perfect hat for all water sports from sailing whether it be hoisting the main sail or lying on the deck with a G&T, to paddle boarding and everything in-between.  It is also the ideal travel companionas it protects from the sun and rain and stores sunglasses and valuables and is lightweight and easily packable.

The Polaris Hat is offered in Royal Blue for SS19.
