The boonie hat was introduced to the United States Armed Forces during the Vietnam War, when U.S. Army Green Berets began wearing them in the field, along with Australian and Army of the Republic of Vietnam units. These hats were locally procured; the camo cloth was usually salvaged from other uniform items or with the former from a parachute or made up by the tailor. The name is derived from "boonie", the abbreviated form of boondocks (itself originally American military slang derived from Tagalog bundok, "mountain", during the Philippine-American War. Made to current U.S. Military specs.;

Location: MTI’ve been wearing my boonie almost every day this year as it’s been ungodly hot. Whether I’m out in the open sun or in the forests of Alberta, my head, ears and neck are protected from the elements. No sunburns, tick bites or glare from the sun. Golf, water sports and even baseball games can’t stop this hat. Love it.

Location: CAI bought one for my Husband, and he loved it! However, he had to fight off our young sons for the privilege to wear it, so I ordered two more, so our sons can be just like Daddy! The hats are sturdy, and fit very well, and all three of my guys love hanging things from the loops.

Location: SCExactly what I was looking for. Lightweight, but good coverage for yard work and it also looks cool. My last military issued hat that was very similar lasted 20+ years and I believe this one is made of the same quality.

Location: NYNice boonie. I bought it online based on my head measurement, however, I am a bit concerned over the warning in the hat about shrinkage. The cammo pattern is great! Pure John Wayne! The material is thinner than the boonie I was issued in the military, maybe that's a good thing.
