Bora Bora™ II Booney 4.6 5 41 41
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. October 29, 2014
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. September 19, 2014
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. July 21, 2014
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. June 16, 2014
Safari Hat Fit good. Lightweight. Great chin strap that worked on Safari :) April 17, 2014
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! March 17, 2014
..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. March 17, 2014
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. January 7, 2014
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. December 13, 2013
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. December 1, 2013
Perfect Fit This hat fits my big head just perfectly! I normally wear an extra large and this one is comfortable. Great Quality! October 25, 2013
Great Coverage Runs a little small but I have a real big head so maybe that factor in overall a great hat thats not a heavy bulky one October 23, 2013
Bora hat Great hat for hot summer days. Lightweight, drawstring works great to accommodate different sized heads. Great sun protection. September 2, 2013
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. August 17, 2013
Excellent product Quality material, good brand, size just right, fits the picture, and radiation shield. August 6, 2013
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.. July 25, 2013
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. July 7, 2013
Bora Bora Excellent hat. I have a gigantic head no baseball cap can fit, yet this fits perfectly at the largest setting. It really does fit all. The shipping was quick and the sunburn on my neck is grateful for the new protection. June 30, 2013
Good sun blocker This hat has a comfortable band and provides excellent ventilation. Arizona sun is extreme and this hat does the job. June 28, 2013
Great Hats we love these hats - we are a landscape design/build and maintenance company in dallas, TX - and we give these to our crews to wear throughout the spring/summer/fall - they love them! they shade their necks and are lightweight and cool! the quality is great - we usually give out a new one each year, but the guys are wearing them every single day for at least 4-5 consecutive months - doing some pretty dirty work, during some very hot weather! June 26, 2013
You did it again ! A hat that stays on at speed on the water, and keeps me dry. June 22, 2013
Cape Cod Lacrosse summer staff hats!! All hail the ultimate Boonie!!! I put my entire staff in this lightweight, breathable hat to keep them cool and safe from harmful UV rays. May 29, 2013
Bora Bora I wanted a hat that will protect my ears, face and neck from the sun while I walk. The hat does an adequate job in that matter. My only complaint is in spite of the mesh sides the heat retention is more than I had hoped for. Over it is a good product. May 21, 2013
This product is versatile and comfortable to wear I enjoy the Bora Bora II Booney. It is comfortable. The size is adjustable and when it is windy, it holds securely with an elastic adjustable band. The brim is wide enough to protect the face from sun. It also has UPF 50 protection. A light mesh fabric allows for air circulation under the cap. My only criticism is when the hat hangs around my neck and it dangles behind my back, the button used to secure the size presses into my back while I am in a seated position. As a solution, I often find myself taking the hat off when I am seated. April 28, 2013
Bora Bora II Booney I lost my original Columbia Booney in one of the many gardens I've worked at. Not surprisingly, no one returned it. Gardeners covet this hat. This one has a drawstring for a tighter fit (valuable in Kansas winds), making it even better than the one I replaced. I was smarter this time and ordered the sage color so my dirty fingerprints won't show as much. April 25, 2013
highly recommend I am the owner/operator of a landscape business in PA. I couldn't be happier with it! The cinch in the back allows you to tighten it on windy days and loosen it up when not. The brim is larger than my last booney and keeps the back of my neck completely shaded. The brim is larger than other booney hats I've owned/tried. On a side not, it is made of synthetic material and is very thin and light. The hat was large for my head (mine measures about 22") but the cinch takes care of that. I have only used this hat for a few weeks, so I cannot comment on durability. April 23, 2013
Call off the search party! It fits! I have a 24.5-25" head with thick hair and this actually fit!! No, you don't understand, it's extremely difficult/nearly impossible to find hats that fit AND look good on this girl's noggin. After searching for years, on the internet and over a few states I found this in Arizona right before I had to spend some major time in the sun. It was a lifesaver. Thank you!! April 1, 2013
excellent gead cover light wieght and grat protection March 31, 2013
Great Sun Protection It fits very well because of the adjustable strap. It offers great sun protection for your face and ears. I would recommend this to anyone who works outside in the sun. March 2, 2013
CAMINHO SANTO AMARO bought THIS HAT for my daughter to walk with me and in Midsummer the temperature 40 degrees centigrade. The performance was excellent. Columbia for congratulations, continue always innovating December 26, 2012
Perfect Hot Weather Sun Hat The Bora Bora II Booney is simply the perfect hat for spending an entire summer day in the field, along the stream, or on the lake or ocean. Great sun protection, light weight, comfortable, durable, and easily adjusted to your preferred fit. I bought one for bass fishing in Pennsylvania last spring and now I have two more for California and Utah. They've performed well from sea level to 10,000 feet, on the ocean, stream side, and on the lake. December 18, 2012
Bora Bora™ II Booney This hat would be spectacular if it had a hidden Velcro closure compartment for dollar bills in the Brim. Additionally if it was available in Dark Navy Blue, it would be easier to sell as a Uniform item to our Fire department in Florida which uses a much poorer design sun hat for our 2,250 employees as sun protection head ware. November 28, 2012
This product has excellent quality This hat is great to take it anywhere!!! all my family has one and I was the only one missing it! it`s easy to fold and pack in my back pack or purse or just carry it. Excellent quality and the most important i feel protected from the sun. It`s very light and keeps my head cool. October 26, 2012
The perfect hat! The perfect hat for the landscaping man!! August 23, 2012
Booney Awesome, love it!!! A must have for those sunny days at the beach, yard work and fishing. August 6, 2012
An oasis on my head! No amount of sunscreen can offer what this hat can. I spend many hours a day exposed to the sun. This hat not only protects you from the sun it actually helps keep you cool and looks good doing it... August 5, 2012
Wide Brim Hat for Gardening Too Purchased to use at beach and while gardening. Brim is firm, which is better than I expected. Good coverage to protect whole face. July 22, 2012
Good hat I like the hat. The material is light. There is adjustable strap and you can secure the hat. I wish the brim is larger and protect more area on my face. July 20, 2012
Great hat I really liked the old style and wish they still made it, but so far this is a great hat. The brim could be a little wider and I wish it had air vents all around like on the old model. June 27, 2012
Perfect walking hat! This hat is great! It is light, comfortable (adjustable) and looks sporty, not dorky. Actually, I wore it today on the boardwalk and a complete stranger told me I looked "WOW". That was unexpected, but it must have something to do with the hat!! I like this for travel (fits in suitcase and is crushable) and I will be able to sit in beachchair and this pliable hat will allow me to rest my head back. I tucked the chin straps up inside, but will use them when walking in a stiff wind. I love the adjustable one-size and I LOVE the ventilated strip. I could feel the breeze on my head, yet I was protected from the sun. I just ordered this in another color! Great hat! April 16, 2012
too large fit, too narrow brim I live in Wyoming where we have an average of 320 sunny days a year. The brim on this hat wouldn't protect my face as well as the previous Columbia hat I had that my sister left on the beach in Baja. The hat has an elastic hat band adjuster but because it was so large when I drew in the elastic it unsightly gathers formed. March 16, 2012
