    The One Thing Nudists Will Wear: a Tilley Hat

    Toronto, Canada (July 2011) For the 9th year in a row, Tilley is proud to be the Official Hat of the American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR) Annual Convention.  The 2011 AANR Annual Convention will be held August 8-14 at Laguna del Sol in Wilton, California.

    The AANR members know a thing or two about sun protection and appreciate the benefits associated with wearing a Tilley Hat. All Tilley Hats have an ‘Excellent’ UV Protection rating of UPF 50+ – the maximum rating given.  And not only do the Hats offer sun protection, they are also versatile, easy to care for, and ideal for travel. In hot weather with features like moisture management anti-sweat bands, mesh in Hats, lightweight breathable fabrics, and vents hidden from the sun but open to air, Tilley has your summer covered.

    Here are some more fast facts about the Tilley Hat, recommended by hundreds of dermatologists as a key form of sun protection every year:

    • Guaranteed for Life Not to Wear Out (all except Raffia Hats – after all, they are made of Raffia!)
    • ‘Insured Against Loss’ for 2 years
    • Stain and water repellent, are crushable, packable and tie in the wind. All Hats float (except the Raffia and wool Hats for the cold).
    • Secret Pocket in the crown of every Hat
    • Look Great, Feel Comfortable in over 50 styles suited for any season, any activity or function

    Recreationists may decide to ditch the clothes, but a Tilley Hat and a smile are a must when practicing safe sun.
