What it is
Tilley Endurables has been designing and making products in Canada for over 30 years. With a collection of 50 hats in their line, this medium brim raffia fedora is the perfect choice for looking chic and staying cool.

Why we love it

Protect your lid and your face, plus look super-stylish in this lightweight but durable straw hat. Travelling this summer? No problem. You can pack it flat or stuff it in a beach bag, and it will come back to life. They promise. Plus, it’s guaranteed to block 98 percent of harmful UVA and UVB rays as it has the highest sun-block rating (UPF 50) and the brim can be turned up or down. Sweat much? It comes with three removable sweatbands for easy washing (gross, but good to know). Caught in the rain? No problem, it’s treated with a water resistant finish that repels rain (just don’t get caught in a torrential downpour).

My hat’s off to that.
