“Hot and sunny expedition rife with potential exposure for team members seeks headwear to provide shade, comfort and breathability. Will consider all offers, but would prefer Tilley.”
Now, if I told you this is the advert we sent out to the world of hats you might raise an eyebrow, which is fair, because we didn’t. Luckily someone heard about Swim1000 before we set off and wrote, saying, “Tilley make the best hats in the world, you should probably get some.”
So we did.
A lifelong obsession with Crocodile Dundee ensured team Medic DZ didn’t take his hat off during his time on the Missouri. This proved inconvenient when in the shower but helped maintain his cool factor when in a canoe with a giant boob.
There was only one case of overheating (or sunstroke) on Swim1000, and this just happened to be when the team member in question forgot to wear their Tilley. Enough said. Tilley, we love you.
