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
93 people found this helpful.
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
259 people found this helpful.
***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.

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 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.
Great for all kinds of outdoor activities
So, I read another review that said this hat had an SPF of 50 (a sex prevention factor) – too funny. I bought it for a trip to Hawaii, and my wife and I called it my “sex prevention” hat all week, and we got a good chuckle out of it. But seriously, this hat is really great. It’s comfortable, light-weight, water-wicking, and really shades your face and neck. It’s easy to adjust for many different sized heads. I wore it kayaking, hiking, horseback riding, boating, hanging on the beach, and for just about everything. Now that I’m home, it’s really great for hiking, yardwork, horseback riding, etc. It was perfect.
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.
Great had for spending the day in the sun.
I love this hat. It keeps my head, face, ears, and neck shaded while the vents keep me relatively cool. Its great for when you are spending the day in the sun (at the zoo, Disney World, softball tournament) and don’t want to slather greasy sunscreen all over your face. It also lays flat which makes it very packable for a trip.
Love the hat
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.
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.
Great traveling hat for sun
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.
