Canoe and Kayak Store is an independently owned, specialist paddle-sport store based in Gloucestershire. We also have a store in South Wales inside the Cardiff International White Water Centre, where you can Demo our boats and paddles on the course.

Our roots trace back to the year 2000 when Richard (having paddled since he was a child) was offered the chance to buy a canoe business. Loving the industry but not liking the company he decided to set up his own – opening a shop in Gloucestershire and leading to where we are today!

    The T3 is the very first Tilley hat ever made, using the original Tilley fabric, an incredibly durable sailcloth - Cotton duck 10oz 100% cotton. Originally made for keen sailors, the T3 has a brim that can be snapped up on either or both sides, making it flexible for all activities, on and off shore. Tilley cotton hats are ideal for every weather condition, from blazing sun to monsoon rain, via rough seas and roaring winds!

    Buyers Guide

    Like footwear, your Tilley Hat must be sized properly. To find your hat size, use a tape measure and draw it right around your head. For the best-looking and most comfortable fit, please make sure that the bottom of the tape touches right above your eyebrows while resting straight around your head. Hold it there comfortably and do not pull tight! Tell us this measurement in inches or centimetres. We’ll take it from there.
    You may also refer to our Hat Sizing Chart below for an easy reference to your Tilley Hat size.
    If you already know your regular (not a Tilley) hat size, please ask for one size larger when you order your Tilley. For instance, if you’re sure you’re a 7¼, order a 7⅜.
    The Tilley Hat fits more comfortably than other hats. It’s designed to be worn low on your head and slightly loose. It should be held on by gravity, not by painful pressure on your forehead! When it’s windy, use the cord!
    Most Tilley Hats and Caps are guaranteed for life not to wear out.
    We pride ourselves on making the finest outdoor Hats and Caps, and treating our clients in the fairest way possible. If there is a problem caused by poor workmanship or faulty material, please send your freshly washed Hat or Cap to us and we'll replace it free - whatever's fair. Exclusions: damage caused by misuse or improper care.
    Unbleached Tilley Hats and Caps will be replaced free* if they ever wear out, mildew or shrink.
    Proper washing of your Tilley Hat or Cap is necessary to ensure it lasts, and does not shrink.
    While our Raffia and Shantung Hats are strong, they are not guaranteed for life because after all they are made from straw or paper. But like all Tilley Hats and Caps they do come with a two year, all perils insurance policy.
    Be sure to include a note with your Name, Address, Telephone Number and Email Address. Mail it to us with a cheque for £6 (UK clients) £10 (Europe clients) £10 (International clients) or the type, the number and expiry date of your credit card to cover the shipping cost and we'll replace it FREE. If you would like your well worn and loved Hat/Cap back, we will be pleased to send it back to you with your new one. Just ask.
    Please wash and dry your item before sending in for guaranteed replacement.

    With your Hat or Cap, you’ll be provided with ‘The Straight-Shooter’s Statement of Loss of a Tilley Hat’ insurance policy. The insurance is for two years, all perils, 50% deductible, and is not issued by Lloyds.
    We understand the anguish of losing this reliable companion, or of having your dog terminally gnaw it. Should that happen, we’ll replace your late, lamented Tilley at half the current catalogue price.
    The details – you may replace your lost, stolen or destroyed Tilley Hat or Cap with the exact same style for one-half the present catalogue price, plus taxes and shipping. If you want another style, we’ll credit 50% of the current catalogue price for the style you lost.
    To claim under the insurance policy – send your Straight-Shooter’s Statement of Loss form, (which should be in the left side of your bottom dresser drawer, if you followed Alex Tilley’s advice) OR send us a valid proof-of- purchase (which can be, either, a copy of the original sales, a copy of the credit card statement with purchase circled – Please be sure you block out your credit card number. Be sure to include your name, address, phone number or email, model number, colour, size and method of payment.
    Please note that the Kids Toppers are not Insured against Loss.
    Machine-wash your cotton, nylon or hemp Hat, delicate cycle preferred, separately, using warm or cool water, or simply wash it by hand, gently using a scrub brush with any soap that does not contain bleach, or any type of whiteners.
    While the Hat is damp, smooth and re-shape by hand, then set it out to air-dry. Don’t put your Tilley in the dryer – it will come out misshapen and totally lacking in joie de vivre.
    When the Hat is dry, simply re-stretch it by putting your knee in the crown and pulling firmly on the opposite side. Then rotate the Hat over your knee and pull the opposite side(s). Although we pre-shrink all our fabrics, fabric will always contract then expand, as do denim jeans. Whenever you’d like the Hat a bit looser – on those hot, muggy days, for instance – take it off and give it a quick re-stretch.
    Tilley Hats and Caps are NOT meant to be put in the dryer. Only our waxed cotton Hats may be put in the dryer, tumble low, to rejuvenate the wax finish every few washes.
    Some of our Hats (particularly Women’s styles – TH8, TH9, TMH9 and TCH9) and the warm-weather Caps are hand-wash only. Check the woven label inside the Hat or Cap for specifics.
    Raffia and Shantung Hats are not washable. They can be spot cleaned with a soft, dampened cloth. The removable sweatband piece at the front of the Hat may be hand-washed in warm water and soap and then air-dried.
    Wool and wool felt Tilley Winter Hats and Caps are Dry Clean Only.
    Wash your Tilley Hat frequently or sweat stains may bond to it. Sweat may also eventually rot the fabric, and it will disintegrate. As you do with all clothing, wash your cotton, nylon or hemp Tilley Hat often.
    We have found no universally applicable way of getting these stains out; perspiration is composed of many chemicals, and the composition of each person’s sweat is unique.
    Some Tilley fans have had some success with Palmolive® dish detergent and warm, not hot water. Once the Hat is wet you can pour the detergent directly on the stained area and use a medium to soft brush, even a toothbrush, to scrub the area. Rinse in cool water, reshape and let it air dry.
    Do not bleach or use a detergent with any type of whitener. Our cotton Hats can turn yellow if washed with a detergent that contains a “whitener”. If that should happen, use TINTEX® Colour Remover to restore it.
    When the Hat is dry, simply re-stretch it, like an American sailor showed us, by putting your knee in the crown, and pulling firmly on the opposite side. Although we have mercilessly pre-shrunk the Hat, the cotton and hemp will always contract and expand, much like denim jeans.
    The fabric of ALL Tilley Hats, including Raffia and Shantung, has been tested and rated UPF 50+, the maximum UV protection rating given for fabrics.
    UPF stands for Ultraviolet Protection Factor. A UPF rating is granted to apparel or gear that has been tested and proven to block a certain amount of ultraviolet radiation. UPF is similar to SPF, except that UPF means UV testing was conducted with equipment rather than on people's skin. SPF rating only applies to lotions applied directly to the skin, not fabrics.
    NO! The UV rating refers to the ability of the fabric to block the sun, not necessarily how much protection the person under it receives. This is all relative to where the sun is positioned in the sky (the time of day), as well as how much sun is being reflected from the surface of water, sand, snow, pavement and so forth.
    Along with fabric that has been certified UPF 50+, a brimmed Hat offers the necessary protection for your ears, temples, cheeks and neck.
    In addition to wearing a Tilley Hat, we strongly recommend the use of sunscreen with a minimum SPF rating of 30, as well as wearing sunglasses with UV filters.
    Unlocking the UPF Code
    Fabrics are assigned a UPF rating number and a protection category depending upon how much UV radiation they block out.
    UPF 15-24 is "GOOD" UV protection, blocking out at least 93.3% UV radiation.
    UPF 25-39 is "VERY GOOD" UV protection, blocking at least 96% of UV radiation.
    UPF 40-50+ is "EXCELLENT" UV protection, blocking 97.5% or more UV radiation.
    UPF50+ is the MAXIMUM rating given.
    Tilley fabric has been tested according to international textile standards ASTM D6544 and labelled to ASTM D6603. These are the highest standards for UV fabric testing.

    Tilley T3 Khaki Snap Up Brim Hat ,  On

    I absolutely love my Tilley Hat, it is a god send when Canoeing to keep the rain off my face and off my glasses whilst paddling, not only that, its brilliant in the summer too, I have had it for half a year now and cannot recommend it enough, keeps my head warm and dry and there is even a mozzie net to go over it to keep those pesky flies away in the summer. The price does seem high, but for a product that has a lifetime guarantee and blocks UV rays, floats, and is insured against loss you really cant ask for more, its basically a hat for life. Big thumbs up from me. Fast delivery from the shop too.

    Hi, My name is

    My Phone Number
    My question about Tilley T3 Khaki Snap Up Brim Hat is...

    With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

    You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


    With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

    So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

    Estimated Delivery Dates

    Estimated Delivery Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.

    The dates we provide are based on indications given by our suppliers. Whenever we get updated information from our suppliers we will endeavour to update the Estimated Delivery Dates provided on product pages.


    Thanks for choosing his item ...
