From safaris to backyard barbeques, keep the bugs at bay with this Tilley Insect Shield® hat! Insect Shield Insect Repellent Apparel features a patent-pending treatment proven to be extremely effective against insects. EPA-registered Insect Shield repels mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers and midges or no-see-ums. Insect Shield is odorless, colorless and does not change the feel of the garment. Insect Shield is effective through 70 washes. Offers excellent protection from the sun: Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) of 50+. Oval brim provides ample shade and rain protection for face, ears and back of neck; brim is structured to hold its shape. Hidden rip-and-stick pocket in the crown stows ID, hotel key or money; sewn-in tag for your name and telephone number should hat become lost. Transpor Dry Layer sweatband does not absorb perspiration, forcing vapor and moisture to exit to outer wicking layer where it spreads and evaporates. Closed-cell foam in the crown makes hat float if it goes overboard, making it a great companion for boating too. Hat includes a tuckable, adjustable wind cord; cord stays hidden in crown when not in use. Hat is preshrunk; machine wash on delicate or hand wash in cool water and smooth and reshape to air dry.
This hat from Tilley will help protect you from mosquitoes, ticks, no-see-ums, and other biting insects. Treated with an odorless and invisible Insect Shield repellent that is bonded to a 100% cotton duck fabric. Will keep performing through 70 washings.
