Boonie hats are an all round fantastic piece of headwear, but genuine surplus boonie hats are even better. Tough lightweight material that protects against the elements whilst also being flexible enough to easily store. Boonie hats provide protection against the beating sun and driving rains, they also give more breathability than your standard hat, making them great for warm, muggy environments.
Eyelets sit on each side of this boonie hat, providing ventilation. A band is also sewn around this hat, leaving small openings that would have been used to add foliage, to give extra camouflage. This band can be used by campers or fishermen, to store items like extra hooks and accessories.
The latest shipment of these boonie hats DO NOT include chinstraps.
- Eyelets for ventilation
- Strap with openings for small storage
- Genuine British surplus
- Tough material wrapped in DPM
- Tabs for adding your own chinstrap

I found my hat to be just the right size. It's very cool and refreshing to put on and is nice and dark. Is alot better than the brightly colored hats you can get. Although it must have a chin strap. If the wind catches it, say goodbye lol.
Otherwise it more than what I expected and is better than any other hat I've had
Thank you so much!
Seriously a great boonie. I received mine in very good condition. I cant say too much about this as its just a good 'ol reliable boonie
The DPM boonie was to replace one I'd lost. It's listed as used but looked and smelled brand new. They do run small, maybe two sizes. I washed it and used a hat stretcher while it was still damp. It's fine now. Very pleased. Thank you Army and Outdoors.
