My winter Tilley is predecessor to current offered winter Tilley. I’ve owned mine for 14 winter seasons. Two summers ago, my ear flaps were a bit tattered for wear, I had it dry cleaned before bringing into HQ in Don Mills. The ladies asked if I was trading it in, seriously...not happening!! There was no out of pocket expense to fix the ear flaps. Hat was finished reasonable well, work schedule delayed my pick up. Hat looks good as new, good for another 14 plus seasons of Canadian winters!! My particular hat has ear warmers as well as forehead warmer. This hat has a impervious liner between layers of hat, when it snows, it never penetrates into the inner part of hat, thus keeping head dry and warm. When outside and the winds are blowing with or without the snow, my head is toasty warm, and for what I’ve witnessed for last fourteen winter seasons, this particular investment has more than paid for itself!!
