      EDIT: The website refers to this as the Lighterweight LT3. Please edit the
      title to reflect this. In addition, because Tilley makes so many styles of
      hats, please refer to your hat as the LT3 throughout your report as opposed
      to "the Tilley". You wouldn't refer to the MSR instead of the Whisperlite
      International if doing a stove report.

      understand what you're talking about.

      EDIT: This backpacking background is good, but it's a bit long. Even though
      it's 103 words, that's still 3 words over the limit. Please trim it down a
      bit. In addition, we really need information on whether you tent, tarp,
      bivy, or hammock; and can you elaborate a bit on lightweight vs. ultralight
      vs. heavy packs. I'm sure gram weenie's would like to know an average amount
      of weight you carry in a pack.

      EDIT: Please change owners to owner's.

      > up Hetch Hetchy. The hike started as a warm several miles up hill
      Edit: Might be nice if you elaborated to the reader what Hetch Hetchy is,
      how steep, where geographically, etc.

      > you ever lost it in the water it's nice to know that it would float.
      EDIT: Please change "you" to something else. "You" is not allowed in reports
      for various reasons. Try "the user" instead of "you"

      Edit: Do you only wear it around town simply cause it has a lifetime
      guarantee? In addition, is this hat overkill for wearing around town?

      Edit: Did you find that it's easily stained by sweat? What about stains from
      dirt or food?

      > same time it is very absorbant and does a good job wicking sweat and
      EDIT: change absorbant to absorbent.
