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.

    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.

    This hat was purchased to be part of my gardening wardrobe. It replaces a Columbia hat that no longer appears to be available, and which served me well for many years. Come Spring we'll see how it works. It is certainly oddly designed, and the fabric may not be as stout as it's predecessor.

    Lightweight boonie

    By Instructorj5

    from MD

    Comments about Columbia Bora Ii Booney Hat:

    Nice, lightweight hat to keep the sun off. Nylon will dry quickly if wet. Definitely needed to cinch it up for proper fit. Can't wait to put it to hard use in the summer.

    Perfect Sun Hat

    By SunshineLisa

    from Vale, Oregon

    Comments about Columbia Bora Ii Booney Hat:

    I couldn't wait for this hat to arrive in the mail as I'm outside everyday working on one project after another. I am so happy to report that I love this hat. It's super light and I find myself forgetting that I even have it on. Blocks alot of sun, which is what I needed. High quality and priced fair.

    Light, Cool, Comfortable

    By DarylB

    from Florida

    Comments about Columbia Bora Ii Booney Hat:

    As an avid kayak fisherman, I need as much protection as possible from the South Florida sun. I typically wear a baseball cap with a buff but it isn't always comfortable to wear the buff all day. So I was looking for something with a brim to keep the sun off my face, and especially my ears. This Booney is perfect for the job. It is super lightweight and very comfortable and I had no problem wearing it all day. When the sun gets really hot, I can poor some cold water on it without it getting heavy and soggy. I love it.

    Too thin on the top

    By Welia

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Columbia Bora Ii Booney Hat:

    I like this hat, fit good, and comfortable. But the top of the hat is too thin, way too thin. I don't think this is going to last for long.

    Great for all outdoor activities

    By Docshark

    from Wernersville, PA

    Comments about Columbia Bora Ii Booney Hat:

    I have one of these hats which I used last summer for hiking, nature photography, leading trail tours and kayak lake tours. I decided to purchase another this season in a different color. Very light but quite rugged. It packs very easily when I do photography trips. The brim does not get in my way when I'm looking through the viewfinder like a baseball hat. I would recommend this hat to anyone doing most any outdoor activity. When it gets windy you can cinch it down and change the size with the bungie cord in the hatband. A great product but then it's Columbia. Enough said!

    ..Great sun protection

    By Karinagail

    from Melbourne,FL

    Comments about Columbia Bora Ii Booney Hat:

    I love this hat. It is lightweight and adjusts to fit any size head. The under chin tie is important on those extremely windy days. I have not had trouble with sunburn on my face since I started using the hat. I still apply sunblock as a precaution since I am very fair skinned. There is really nothing negative to say about the Bora Bora.

    Comments about Columbia Bora Ii Booney Hat:

    I've been testing this style for years, looking for one that fit me and provided good protection. This is the first time I have found one that fit and provided good quality and fit.

    Very Functional hat

    By Skidmark60

    from Xenia, Ohio

    Comments about Columbia Bora Ii Booney Hat:

    I had been looking for a hat of this nature. I have a big brimmed cotton hat that is way to hot for summer use. This one is so light that you hardly notice it. In 2002 I had skin cancer removed from forehead and was even more pleased to see the SPF 50 rating. I look forward to many years wearing this hat and the protection it provides.
