Bora Bora™ II Booney is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 107.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Functional hat This is a great hat for all types of people who enjoy outdoor adventures! I bought this hat specifically for paddling - great features include an adjustable neck drawcord AND an adjustable head drawcord - exactly what was needed on a very windy lake! Brim is wide and protect face and neck from the sun. Lightweight and breathable fabric with mesh air vents kept me cool while portaging. A great hat for a great price!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great travel hat! I bought a similar Columbia hat that I wore for years, but which became stained from multiple trips. I bought the Bora Bora II Booney hat and find it an excellent replacement. It is light-weight, ventilated, comfortable, fits on people with large heads (I have a large head and do not find most Tilley hats comfortable). Price point is great. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light weight, nice coverage Rims are a bit floppy, but I guess they sacrificed material to make it very light weight. Can hardly feel it on your head. Not sure how it would fare on windy days. 3" rims provide good sun coverage. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hat for sun and rain! This hat is amazing! I bought it to keep my bald head protected from the sun and it does an amazing job at that! Very light-weight and breathable. I have a very large head and was a little afraid of ordering without trying it on, but it fits great and has a drawstring for people with normal sized heads. It's also a great rain hat. Water just beads up and rolls off. The hat dries very quickly as well. Great product Columbia!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great summer hat Love the lite weight of this hat. Most hats make my head too hot. This one is lite and ventilated makes even the hottest day tolerable. I live in the Florida Keys and summer is extremely hot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has great features. I wore this hat on a recent trip to Israel. It provided the protection I needed from the intense sun. In addition, the mesh panels were extremely breathable and kept me cool as we walked around the ancient ruins. I would highly recommend this hat for any trip you are planning to a hot sunny area.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shades of Booney So, my family is new to camping this year, and we've been doing a lot of it. Ultimately though I determined that I needed to keep my rather thinly haired head covered and protected. I looked around a bit, but had been happy with other Columbia purchases so I decided on this. My only wish is that the brim were slightly stiffer, but overall I am VERY pleased with this. It is light - very light on the old noggin, while keeping it from feeling like an egg that is frying while in direct sun. The venting allows you still feel a light breeze in the hair while your own stifling head heat escapes. This in now an essential part of my camping gear!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good hat The hat did exactly what we wanted it to do - keep the sun off our faces. The only negative is that we got caught in a rainstorm and ended up with super floppy (comically funny) hats. The drawstring adjusted the hats to fit my husband's big head as well as my teenage son's smaller head.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Light, adjustable, big enough for my big hair, offers excellent sun protection for my face. Love it! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Hat for Fishing and Anything Outdoors This hat is a must for anglers, especially out on the water. I used to simply wear a regular ball cap out on the water because it didn't make my head hot like other fishing hats in the past. Unfortunately, I would always come back sun burnt on my neck and even my face. This hat has eliminated that problem and keeps me cool on account of the mesh and wicking head band. Once again, Columbia delivers! Not to mention, it's very stylish as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hat The size was a bit larger than expected but it is adjustable and fits well once adjustments were made. Lightweight and easily packed away for trips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great travel hat I was surprised to see how lightweight this hat is and the fit was perfect. I love the blue color and sun protection. This hat as UV protection . This style was recommended to me by a friend and I am glad they did.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Strap Breaks Everytime I have had 3 of these and all of them have broken within the first summer. The material, fit, and just about everything else is great. The little part that holds the hat to my head always breaks. The springs are gone or the plastic breaks. Very frustrating to spend the $30 every summer. I have learned my lesson.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing I was really excited to get this hat. I have several Colombia products that I love; in fact the only toque I will wear when I'm out in the winter is Colombia. I wore this hat on three hikes. The first it was a little floppy but I expected that from the reviews. The second it rained so the hat got wet. It was floppier but I figured it wold dry out and return to normal. When dry the top layer of fabric lifted up and bubbled everywhere. This weekend I went backpacking I couldn't tolerate wearing my hat because it got so floppy that the sides were touching my face. On a sunny 30° day with a 30 lbs pack I want a hat that I can count on to keep the sun of my face and certainly don't want it to be so floppy that it's giving my face a hug. I also expect outdoor gear to be able to withstand a bit of rain without being damaged. My husband has a similar hat, that's a different brand, that he paid half has much for that doesn't show any wear from the same three excursions. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hat for working in the garden I bought this hat for my father to work in the garden. He loves it and especially appreciated the sun protection. The hat is a little on the bigger side, so if you have a medium to large head it would fit well, but if you have a smaller head it big feel a bit big (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight and durable Great hat to protect face and neck while in the sun. I live in Utah and wear this when I am hiking out in open trails and the hat does a great job of shielding my face and the back of my neck from the sun. Great price too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fishing and Camping Hat I bought this hat for a camping and fishing trip. It has a nice sized brim for protection from sun damage, nice vents to keep you cool, a drawstring for easy resizing, and an adjustable strap that kept it in place during some very windy boating. Looks good, too. This is an awesome hat, especially at its price point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fishing Hat A little more floppy than I anticipated but still a good product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just as expected... I bought this for my husband to wear while out doing lawn work, at the beach, etc. He usually wears a baseball hat but this provides more coverage from the sun on his neck. It has ventilation so it breathes. It is adjustable so he was able to get the perfect fit for him. I got the fossil color and it is the perfect tan shade. This is just what he was looking for!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good hat and not huge Finally a hat that has not given me a headache! It's not tight and it's not huge so I drown in it. I also don't look too bad in it but the best part is it's spf and drs fast. I'd recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Airy and Nice The hat fit well when I tried it on, but actually haven't had the opportunity to wear it out and about due to rainy / cold weather. Look forward to taking it with me on an adventure trip in a couple of weeks. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Hat for sunny hot weather! Great hat to block the sun from face, ears, and neck. It's a one size hat, but resizes with the drawstring very well. I wear L or XL size hats and this hat resizes to fit me perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hat I really like this hat. Don't get me wrong, you're not going to be the most stylish guy on the block, but it's light weight, repels water nicely, provides lots of shade, and breathes really well. It's a great hat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sun Hat I have had skin cancer removed on my ears and I live on the South Texas Gulf Coast so this hat is perfect for keeping the sun off my head. Cool in our Texas summers, but the brim will flop around in any wind. The adjustable size is a nice feature, just be advised the hat is sized large to accommodate everyone. I'm a 7 3/8" and I have to cinch it up quite a bit to get a snug fit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The hat that saved my face!! I took this hat with me to very sunny locations in my travels. I am fair skinned and dislike sunscreen most of the time. This hat worked well in keeping the sun from burning me up. If your fair skinned like I am spend the money. It will be worth it in the end

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Hat for all kinds of weather This was an incredibly functional hat. I liked the zip tie in the back to adjust the fit around your head. The chin cord was great win windy conditions. The mesh was awesome in the heat and humidity. The water repellency did its job well too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from SwimDad Got this to keep the sun away as my job keeps me outdoors a lot. Wore it yesterday for the first time - went from very sunny to a downpour in about 15 minutes. Hat did it's job - kept both sun and rain away. Very lightweight (appreciated), but the brim didn't hold it's shape as well as I would have liked in the rain (not appreciated). Only reason I don't give this an excellent rating is I wish the brim were slightly larger/slightly sturdier. Other than this, a great product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too Floppy I ordered this hat for golfing. Like the look but the brim is too soft and does not hold shape. It has an adjustable string but I found it too large for me. Still a nice hat just doesn't work for my needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My New Best Friend Now that I have this hat, I couldn't be without it! The vent is particularly helpful in keeping the head cool, the size is perfect, and the chin strap means I never have to chase my hat down the trail again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for safari Both my husband and I bought these hats and they worked great on our safari. He has a large head (hat size 8) and it fit fine. The bill was a bit flimsy (as mentioned in other reviews) when our truck got going over 20 mph but it wasn't bothersome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Coverage A good functional summer hat with open vents that let a breeze in but with a wide brim that gives good shade coverage. Ordered the "sage"; it looked tan on my screen. It's a little darker than expected with a hint of green. It is a one size fits all; I'm a 7 3/8 -7 1/2 and the elastic band inside is not at all tight on me. I wish they offered more colors [Ex: NCAA school colors].

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sorry hat Just received this hat, might as well have a rag on my head. Can't even see as the brim gets in the way of what I want to see. Returning it as soon as I can.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Booney hat awesome I purchased this hat to see if I could finally find a Booney hat that performed well and looked good. I also liked the color. Oh and one that would stay on my head while sailing. This one does it all. I am very happy with this hat and the price was right too.
Date published: 2016-06-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect sun protection I found the hat to be very useful for outdoor activities. The adjustable head band makes it a very good fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bora Bora Hat II Booney I used to wear a straw hat when doing my yard work here in sunny Orlando Florida. I replaced my straw hat with the Bora Bora hat and it was the best thing I did. The hat is much lighter. My head does not sweat as much as with the straw hat. The vents around the hat work great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good enough for Aussies My best friend lives in Australia, and this is the only hat she'll wear! This one-size-fits-all is actually large enough for large-size heads, and the brim is wide enough to provide plenty of protection from the sun. I've been buying these and sending them to her for a few years. I have one for myself too, and I think they are awesome.
Date published: 2016-06-19
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great hat, but... I really like this hat. It is a replacement for a Boonie I lost. This hat is very lightweight and cool but durable. My biggest complaint is the same as others, the brim is too flimsy/floppy. With a slight bit of stiffening to the brim this hat would be perfect. That factor causes me to give my rating of 4 rather than 5.
