Tilley Continues Sponsorship as the official Hat of

American Association of Nude Recreation Annual


Toronto, Canada (June 23, 2014)

For the 11th year in a row, Tilley is proud to be the Official Hat of the American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR) Annual Convention. The 83rd AANR Annual Convention will be held August 10-17 at Sunny Rest Resort in the beautiful Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.

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
  • Made in Canada

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