Featuring UPF 50 to block out 98% of harmful UVA and UVB rays and carrying the Skin Cancer Foundation’s seal of recommendation, the Bora Bora Booney is definitely more than your average fishing hat. An Omni-Wick™ sweatband combines with a mesh vent panel (which is non UPF) to keep you cool and the sweat from dripping in your eyes. Quick-dry properties mean that even if this hat takes a dunk with you, it’ll be dry in no time. An adjustable toggle customizes the hat’s fit to your head. An adjustable chinstrap adds further security.

Nice lightweight hat
99 helpful votes
This is the second sun hat I have purchased. I bought his full price, not as a reviewer. It is a lightweight hat with a floppy brim. I read some of the review of this product before buying it, and a few commented on being unhappy with the brim due to it being without structure. So I am noting here it is a floppy brim hat–like a fishing hat.
***Warning*** SPF concerns
280 helpful votes
***Warning*** This hat includes 50SPF(sun protection factor) to keep the sun off your head/neck/ears on those hot sunny days at the beach/hiking/yard work. What they don’t tell you is that it also includes 100SPF (Sex Prevention Factor). While wearing this hat it vastly reduces one’s chance of seducing your partner. My wife has stated repeatedly that my chances are 100% not happening. Otherwise it is a fantastic hat.
Great hat for sun protection.

I bought this hat to help protect my face while out on the water for a recent trip to French Polynesia. The hat is lightweight, collapses down to a small size for packing, is very breathable and provided the sun protection I was looking for. My head is slightly narrow but long and so I often have a difficult time get a hat to fit right. With the elastic draw string I got just the right fit. I was so pleased with my hat that I bought my father in-law one and he wears his anytime he is out in the yard.
In 107 Degrees – It’s Cool

Currently in a very hot northern Thailand, and this hat has done everything expected. It folds, it breathes, it stays on, and I don’t think it makes me look a dork.
Great for male or female and any head size.

I have a big head and this hat fits me perfectly. It also fits my boyfriend. I didn’t think the boyfriend would like it but he loves it! And so do I. It is perfect for all our hiking. It keeps the sun off most of your face. Maybe just your chin will be exposed to the sun, so be sure to always wear zinc oxide sunblock no matter what. I find that men I’ve talked to in our hiking adventures are adverse to putting the strap down and so if it’s really windy, you will stress that it’s going to fall off his head. I don’t mind having the strap down. It feels super secure like it’s not going to fly off my head, especially wiht the strap down.
Worth the money

Just got back from a week in Banff, Canada, We hiked a lot of trails and went up chair lifts and gondolas at high elevations. The hat kept my head cool and my face and neck protected from the sun. The MVP of the hat was the chin strap. On the open chairlifts, the wind was whipping fast and had big gusts. The chin strap kept the hat right in place, never felt like I was going to loose it.
A treasure on camping trips and days on the water

Especially for those with shaved heads, thin hair, or baldness, this hat is a treasure. Plenty of ventilation, flexibility to make sure that the brim of the hat can always block the Sun.
Love the hat
1 helpful vote
Wore this on a jetski, other than the brim fell a little and had to look forward or it fell in my face from the wind, it was great. Held the sun off my balding head and made me look like the old man of the sea, which I can take as I didnt get burned and it survived and held up under all the water. Nice and easy to crush and reform to normal shape, will use for fishing soon.
Great traveling hat for sun
1 helpful vote
This hat was perfect on recent trip. I could crush it up as much as I needed to when traveling, hiking. It has a brim that blocks the sun effectively. Be aware that it has no waterproof as I wore it one day in a downpour proved but description doesn’t claim it is waterproof. I wore it in some windy places and really appreciated the neck strap.
Lightweight and breathable, but packable??
1 helpful vote
Lightweight, breathable, comfortable hat is especially good for hiking adventures. It says it is packable, and I suppose it is (it doesn’t crunch like other hats), but the shape of mine was never right again (in particular the brim). If they’d accept a return, I’d actually prefer something else. I look back with embarrassment on my vacation pictures when I’m wearing the hat after it lost its shape.
