Now that I have this hat, I couldn't be without it! The vent is particularly helpful in keeping the head cool, the size is perfect, and the chin strap means I never have to chase my hat down the trail again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lisa10 Great for safari
Both my husband and I bought these hats and they worked great on our safari. He has a large head (hat size 8) and it fit fine. The bill was a bit flimsy (as mentioned in other reviews) when our truck got going over 20 mph but it wasn't bothersome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tim258 Nice Coverage
A good functional summer hat with open vents that let a breeze in but with a wide brim that gives good shade coverage.
Ordered the "sage"; it looked tan on my screen. It's a little darker than expected with a hint of green.
It is a one size fits all;
I'm a 7 3/8 -7 1/2 and the elastic band inside is not at all tight on me.
I wish they offered more colors [Ex: NCAA school colors].

Just received this hat, might as well have a rag on my head. Can't even see as the brim gets in the way of what I want to see. Returning it as soon as I can.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PDXbob Booney hat awesome
I purchased this hat to see if I could finally find a Booney hat that performed well and looked good. I also liked the color. Oh and one that would stay on my head while sailing. This one does it all. I am very happy with this hat and the price was right too.

I found the hat to be very useful for outdoor activities. The adjustable head band makes it a very good fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fonz Bora Bora Hat II Booney
I used to wear a straw hat when doing my yard work here in sunny Orlando Florida. I replaced my straw hat with the Bora Bora hat and it was the best thing I did. The hat is much lighter. My head does not sweat as much as with the straw hat. The vents around the hat work great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1Texan Good enough for Aussies
My best friend lives in Australia, and this is the only hat she'll wear! This one-size-fits-all is actually large enough for large-size heads, and the brim is wide enough to provide plenty of protection from the sun. I've been buying these and sending them to her for a few years. I have one for myself too, and I think they are awesome.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BigJDub Great hat, but...
I really like this hat. It is a replacement for a Boonie I lost. This hat is very lightweight and cool but durable. My biggest complaint is the same as others, the brim is too flimsy/floppy. With a slight bit of stiffening to the brim this hat would be perfect. That factor causes me to give my rating of 4 rather than 5.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mbfirelt Great Fishing Hat
The Bora Bora II Booney is my most recent addition to my Columbia PFG gear. I believe the thing that I like best is that I dont have to remove it while running down the lake. Most hats will fly off your head. The brim of the Bora Bora flips up and the hat stays put. I purchased the dark grey color. It does get a little hot at mid day so I would recommend a lighter color version for long days in direct sun. Another quality product
