Product Description

You don't have to be in Bora Bora to enjoy the benefits of this ultrabreathable Omni-Shade™ hat—but no complaints if you are, right? Featuring UPF-50 to block out 98% of harmful UVA and UVB rays and carrying the Skin Cancer Foundation’s seal of recommendation, this is definitely more than your average fishing hat. An Omni-Dry® moisture-wicking sweatband combines with mesh vents to keep you cool and to keep 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 to fit your head. An adjustable chinstrap adds further security. One size fits most. Imported.

        Had one before, but lost it out of my boat. I fish even in the Florida summer heat and this hat is perfect. It's cool to wear and it protects my ears, like the wide brim.

        Beware of Poor Quality from Columbia

          Comments about Columbia Bora Ii Booney Hat, Sage:

          I have had these hats for a number of years, mostly bought from [@] I bought them three at a time, because they get lost, etc. I considered them a necessity for my outdoors activities. No more.Reason? These hats have a fatal flaw. After about three months (or less!) of sun exposure, the top fabric rots from UV degradation, weakens, and shreds. When Ma Boyle ran the company they would replace the defective, sun-weakened hats, no questions asked. Now, they won't. And now, I have about six of these with shredded top panels.Last time I sent three shredded hats back to Columbia Sportswear, they returned them with a terse message the equivalent of, "They are more than a year old, so it's too bad for you. Please refer to our warranty." Problem was, they were bought under the Ma Boyle Warranty, so how could they be "too old"?When I told them this, the answer was something like, "That was then. This is now. We are not going to repair or replace your hats for you. And that's it".Same thing with some of their shirts and other clothing - poor quality that Columbia won't back up, because they know their fabrics weaken, stain, shred and fade. Columbia clearly has obviously abandoned their former concern for their reputation for quality. But - you still pay for that missing quality and support. I guess Ma Boyle's legendary quality was a victim of mass marketing, something like Coleman's, but worse. Beware, go elsewhere, like [@], for decent value in generic fabric products like hats and shirts and shorts. By the way - same with Sportif gsrments, too!This is not a "sour grapes" review, but an honest attempt to be fair about these hats, and to warn prospective buyers that they may not be getting what they think they are getting and paying for from Columbia Sportswear products ....

              I bought this hat for my husband for christmas and he needs a hat that covers well for when he is on the boat. It is very hard to find a hat that fits him just right and this is the one. The material is very lightweight yet durable. I give it a thumbs up.
