Necessity is the mother of invention. What happens when you have a need, and you can’t find a ready-made product that satisfies it? You make your own…and that’s just what Alex Tilley did. Tilley hats are feature rich, including a secret compartment to stash a little cash or your passport, and they float and block 98% of the sun’s harmful UV rays. Did we tell you they are insured and guaranteed for life? Several styles are available for both men and women.
