Boonie hats are a fantastic option for all outdoor enthusiasts, comfortable and protective from the elements. Created to keep harsh sun and driving rain out of the user's face. The protection it provides is second to none, a great piece of gear to take hunting, camping, hiking and paintballing.
This boonie hat was styled after the classic GI boonie hats, not only does it come in the best colour...black, but it also has waterproof properties. Being waterproof is a huge boon, stopping your head being soaked if you're outdoors whilst it happens to be raining.
- Waterproof material
- Styled off of the iconic GI boonie
- Comfortable nylon chinstrap
- Eyelets for added breathability

Looking at the label they may be made in Germany
I was a bit apprehensive about a non military surplus item, but have to say this is a quality item. It’s not heavy which is nice and as for waterproof it certainly is, the chin strap is handy for those windy wet days. It certainly is light and ventilated enough that when the sun comes out it’s really not an issue. Better than waxed cotton waterproof hats by miles.
Happy that these are also available in larger sizes
Great value here
Working outside means you need to protect yourself from not only the sun, but also the rain! This hat accomplishes both of those duties flawlessly. Having the narrower brim means it will not sag and flop like many other hats of up to double the price! Since I'm living in Queensland (Australia) and conveniently my partner is from Christchurch, I was going to send her in to the retail store to pick up some gear I had my eyes on, however when the sale for free shipping to Australia popped up I decided I couldn't wait any longer (and she would probably get the wrong stuff anyway). I placed my order on a Thursday evening and the very next Wednesday I received all my goods! You cant even send a post card between Australia and NZ within that time frame! Love it! Cheers
Had this about a year now. Fits well. Covers ears. Keep your head dry in the rain. Head gets hot during hot days, due to it being waterproof and black.
