CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. The winner is:

Little Gray Bird


CANADA IS A LAND of vast wilderness, with virtually limitless options for outdoor adventure. It was outdoor adventure that gave rise to the famous Tilley Hat, often called the World’s Best Hat. Canadian sailing enthusiast Alex Tilley made the prototype of the Tilley Hat in 1980 for himself and his family to wear while sailing on his boat Karmananda (karma + ananda, which means bliss in Sanskrit).

The hat evolved over the years, other clothing items were added to the lineup, and the company came to be called Tilley Endurables. It got a big lift when Alex discovered that people loved to wear his hat and clothes while travelling. To learn more, read Ode to the Tilley Hat.

Now Tilley Endurables are known to Canadians and around the world as the makers of great travel clothes. And they still make hats, lots of hats, in a surprising range of styles from a rakish raffia fedora for men to a chic vintage cloche for women. But the travel hats are the stars, if you ask me. And I should know.

I’ve been wearing my hemp Tilley Hat on every trip I’ve taken in the last six years. I bought my beloved hemp hat, pictured above, at the Toronto Pearson Airport in 2009 and I literally never leave home without it. Tilley Hats are designed to be rugged, durable, practical and stylish. They come with special features, like a hidden pocket, they travel well and they are guaranteed for life.

A Tilley Hat would make an ideal gift for the traveller in your life. For Canadians, it will be delivered by Christmas if you get your order in by December 17, 2015. You can order online here, on the Tilley Endurables website.
