Insect Repellent Hat

This hat drives biting insects away with a bonded-in insect repellent. The odorless EPA-registered repellent permethrin is bonded to water-repellent 10-oz. cotton duck, providing safe protection from mosquitoes, ticks, no-see-ums, and black flies without the greasiness, odor, and time-consuming application of sprays or lotions. From Tilley Endurables, Canada's premier purveyor of travel clothing for over 25 years, the hat is sewn by hand with all threads lockstitched so they won't pull loose. It blocks 98% of UV rays for a UPF rating of 50+ (the highest possible) and its wide, down-sloping brim shields your neck and face from sun and rain. Air vents and a moisture-wicking headband keep your head cool. The crown has a hidden pocket, and an adjustable cord secures the hat in breezy conditions. Crushable and packable, the hat maintains its insect repellent effectiveness through 70 washings.
