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
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
***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.
This hat has truly transformed my life and it protects my skin so I’m at my best for frog school every day
This hat changed my life. I have become a complete jungle man. Frogs immediately gravitate to me. I’ve started a frog training school. The only part of my old life that I’ve brought with me is my beloved coffee mug. This hat has truly transformed my life and it protects my skin so I’m at my best for frog school every day. Seriously, buy this hat. It’s incredible.
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.
Perfect for Being Out in the Merciless Sun
I really like these Columbia Bora Bora Booney II hats. I bought one in Fossil and liked it so much that I bought another in Sage for my husband (see pic of the two colors). The hats are floppy and you’ll potentially look ridiculous wearing them, but there’s nothing like taking your shade with you wherever you walk. The sun where I live beats down mercilessly in the summer and the skin temperature difference between being under shade or being under direct sun is enormous. I was skeptical about the value of the mesh area for cooling, but I can clearly feel a breeze passing through the hat when the wind blows, so it definitely fulfills its function. At first I considered buying a cool looking stiff-brimmed outdoor hat, but being very practical and caring less and less about fashion as I get older, I chose this Bora Bora hat instead. The Bora Bora hat can be folded up in your cargo short’s side pocket when you’re inside (and not wearing it – like when you’re in a grocery store) and then unfolded and worn again when you’re back outside. You certainly can’t do that with a stiff-brimmed hat. If you’re heading outside in the searing sun and don’t want to have to coddle a stiff-brimmed hat, then you need one of these practical Bora Bora hats.
very nice sun hat, easily fits a larger head, but not worth double the price of the competition
I also have a Tru-Spec boonie hat that I also like, but mostly use as a spare (stored in the car).
Great for the pool or beach!
Got this for my husband for Father’s Day and he loves it! We spend a lot of time at the pool and the ocean and it does a great job of protecting the sun from his face and neck. Thinking about getting one for myself as well!
This hat keeps the head cool as it shades the ears neck and face. Lightweight and adjustable, one soon forgets they are wearing a hat. I hate hats, however, I like this hat.
