Rated 4 out of 5 by PNWfemale 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.

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.

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.

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 Marymouse 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 SB503 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 DanielL 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.
