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.

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.

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.

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

Rated 5 out of 5 by GNT1028 Great Hat!
As an Aquatic biologists who works in Texas, we're in the field constantly and often in direct sunlight and during long hot summer days. The hat is very popular with my coworkers and I recommend it for anyone spending time in the field or just enjoy being outdoors. Excellent product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bostonfisherman good sunshade
I have a couple different generations of this hat. I use this hat for my travels and fishing. It has a wide brim that keeps the sun off your eyes. This hat is very light and packs well.
My original hat had the mesh all around and my last one had the mesh venting only in the front. I found the all around mesh kept my head cooler. Not sure why they changed that design. Perhaps they can make the top with a more breathable natural material than polyester.
I love the hat but one thing they need to improve on is the stiffness of the brim. After long uses and washes, the brim become floppy and droops. Otherwise, I am very happy with the hat.
