Boonie hats were originally introduced by the U.S. Army to protect soldiers from sun and rain, but also to conceal their outline and add camouflage. Australian's will know this style of hat as a 'bush hat' or 'giggle hat'. This particular boonie hat is waterproof for increased protection when it starts pouring down.
As with all good boonie hats, this one features a foliage ring for adding vegetation for improved camouflage. It also has two ventilation holes on either side. An adjustable chin strap completes the boonie hat design. A classic hat for fishing, hunting and hiking, providing essential protection from scorching sun rays and wet weather.

Really pleased with the quality of these hats. Just like army issue.
Excellent quality hats! Had it out in plenty of rain and its 100% waterproof, you also don't overheat so it breaths really well. Have worn it pushing through soaking wet scrub and undergrowth in the rain, when pushing through head first with this hat on its remained fully waterproof and kept the rain / wet off my head and face. Both of which remained nice and dry despite the harsh weather.
Awesome hats, 100% recommended!
