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.

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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fishing Hat The Bora Bora II Booney is my most recent addition to my Columbia PFG gear. I believe the thing that I like best is that I dont have to remove it while running down the lake. Most hats will fly off your head. The brim of the Bora Bora flips up and the hat stays put. I purchased the dark grey color. It does get a little hot at mid day so I would recommend a lighter color version for long days in direct sun. Another quality product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Hat! As an Aquatic biologists who works in Texas, we're in the field constantly and often in direct sunlight and during long hot summer days. The hat is very popular with my coworkers and I recommend it for anyone spending time in the field or just enjoy being outdoors. Excellent product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good sunshade I have a couple different generations of this hat. I use this hat for my travels and fishing. It has a wide brim that keeps the sun off your eyes. This hat is very light and packs well. My original hat had the mesh all around and my last one had the mesh venting only in the front. I found the all around mesh kept my head cooler. Not sure why they changed that design. Perhaps they can make the top with a more breathable natural material than polyester. I love the hat but one thing they need to improve on is the stiffness of the brim. After long uses and washes, the brim become floppy and droops. Otherwise, I am very happy with the hat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice hat I had been wearing a fedora made from paper braid. But, it was making my head too hot, so I was shown this hat and bought it. I like the nice wide brim. It does a better job shading my eyes. I thought with the mesh ventilation panel that it would help keep my head cool. It doesn't. The hat is made of 100% polyester. Polyester has a tendency to hold the heat in rather than let it escape. However, I'm not sure if putting the mesh panel on the top of the hat would accomplish that. Since, I got tired of having sweat drip in my eyes, I had to buy a band to wear under the hat. The band helps to soak up the sweat. It would have been nice if this hat had that feature built in. Overall, though, it is a nice hat and I'm really glad that I have it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bora Bora II I like the hat a lot. The quality is very good. I enjoy that the hat is easily adjustable and breathable. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I shave my head and the fabric makes the top of my head itch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Standard Field Gear As fish biologists, we're in the field constantly and often in direct sunlight and during long hot summer days. We've have chosen the Bora Bora II Booney as one of two standard hats issued to our field crews to protect them from the sun while being light enough to keep their heads comfortable. The hat is very popular with our crews and I recommend it for anyone spending time in the field. Excellent product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great I've only worn this once for golf, but the sun protection was great, the One-size-fits worked great, and overall the hat is very comfy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best hat for working outside Love this hat for being outside for a long time. The strap is comfortable and keeps the hat on even in high wind. I get much better coverage from the sun, and since my skin is very sensitive I can only wear SPF 15.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits my husband's larger head This is a great sun protection hat. It looks great on and the bonus is that it fits my husband's larger head. Not many hats fit him, even when they are sized as an XL. BUT, the best color is Black. Please bring back the black color as my husband does not want another color.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great hat, a little "floppy" Overall, I really like this hat. It works very well for providing shade, and is comfortable. My only wish is that the brim had a little more rigidity to it. When the hat first arrived, it had been folded so that the brim in front of my eyes flopped down and blocked my vision. Fortunately, this hat doesn't "remember" folds and bends very long. That said, the brim does droop a lot. On the plus side, it can be stuffed into a bag with no concern.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight boonie Nice, lightweight hat to keep the sun off. Nylon will dry quickly if wet. Definitely needed to cinch it up for proper fit. Can't wait to put it to hard use in the summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Sun Hat I couldn't wait for this hat to arrive in the mail as I'm outside everyday working on one project after another. I am so happy to report that I love this hat. It's super light and I find myself forgetting that I even have it on. Blocks alot of sun, which is what I needed. High quality and priced fair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, Cool, Comfortable As an avid kayak fisherman, I need as much protection as possible from the South Florida sun. I typically wear a baseball cap with a buff but it isn't always comfortable to wear the buff all day. So I was looking for something with a brim to keep the sun off my face, and especially my ears. This Booney is perfect for the job. It is super lightweight and very comfortable and I had no problem wearing it all day. When the sun gets really hot, I can poor some cold water on it without it getting heavy and soggy. I love it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too thin on the top I like this hat, fit good, and comfortable. But the top of the hat is too thin, way too thin. I don't think this is going to last for long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for all outdoor activities I have one of these hats which I used last summer for hiking, nature photography, leading trail tours and kayak lake tours. I decided to purchase another this season in a different color. Very light but quite rugged. It packs very easily when I do photography trips. The brim does not get in my way when I'm looking through the viewfinder like a baseball hat. I would recommend this hat to anyone doing most any outdoor activity. When it gets windy you can cinch it down and change the size with the bungie cord in the hatband. A great product but then it's Columbia. Enough said!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ..Great sun protection I love this hat. It is lightweight and adjusts to fit any size head. The under chin tie is important on those extremely windy days. I have not had trouble with sunburn on my face since I started using the hat. I still apply sunblock as a precaution since I am very fair skinned. There is really nothing negative to say about the Bora Bora.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sun hat I've been testing this style for years, looking for one that fit me and provided good protection. This is the first time I have found one that fit and provided good quality and fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Functional hat I had been looking for a hat of this nature. I have a big brimmed cotton hat that is way to hot for summer use. This one is so light that you hardly notice it. In 2002 I had skin cancer removed from forehead and was even more pleased to see the SPF 50 rating. I look forward to many years wearing this hat and the protection it provides.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Odd Design, Hope it Works This hat was purchased to be part of my gardening wardrobe. It replaces a Columbia hat that no longer appears to be available, and which served me well for many years. Come Spring we'll see how it works. It is certainly oddly designed, and the fabric may not be as stout as it's predecessor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sits a little low Great hat, lots of shade, and seems to have good airflow. It keeps my head cool and keeps the sweat out of my eyes. It does seem to sit a bit low on my head. I have tried adjusting the elastic band, but for some reason it always ends up resting on the top of my ears.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Hat I bought this hat a year ago and never wore it because I have another hat that I love from REI. Then I wore it while doing stand up paddle boarding, fell in the water, and I couldn't believe how well it held up while wet. I was so impressed, I bought 2 more, a 2nd one for me in another color, and one for my husband. It's now my go-to hat for water activities. It's one size, but quite adjustable..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Father's Day Gift My Dad loved this gift. Just right for yard work around the home. Size is adjustable via draw string which make this hat stand out among others. Great Quality and very comfortable to wear.
