Very nice hat for the sun. Brim dips down in front to shade the eyes, and is long enough in the back to cover the next. The brim sides are straight for good side vision.

Many sun hat brims are too floppy to hold up in a breeze. This one has a plastic wire in the edge to keep the shape. The drawstring in the base holds it on your head in stiffer breezes.

The only improvement I would make is better ventilation. The four vents are very small. A mesh band would be better, as it can get hot.

We saw this hat while on a trip to Michigan. My husband had been looking for a hat to wear on our pontoon in Ohio. He would have preferred khaki. We ordered the hat online from home. What came was a very dark grey, almost charcoal color. Customer service sent a new hat. Same color.

    Comments about Tech Booney Hat:

    This lightweight hat has a good brim that keeps the sun off your face and neck while adjustable enough (along with the lariat) to stay on at 30+ mph cruising in the boat.
