I bought a Navy hat from the local WM store and immediately loved it. I've been wearing full brimmed hats exclusively for about 5 years now and found ALL of them leaning to one extreme or the other; too hard, hot and stylish or too soft, loose and sloppingly floppy.

This hat is the PERFECT combination of sturdiness and cool comfort, while maintaining a stylish rake and brim. I've now ordered additional hats in khaki and charcoal.

The hat is cooler than the featherweight floppy I wear while working in the yard because of its ability to wick the sweat as apposed to allowing it to flow into my eyes. I just haven't wanted to subject my new hat to that torture yet....especially dark colors....not sure how they will yet hold up to salty sweat staining.

Otherwise, I would say it's a complete "recommend".

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:

        Loved the hat when it came. Comfortable, lightweight, good brim shade. However, the chin strap broke on the third wearing. Looks like just poor sewing at the point of manufacture. Very disappointing, and from previous comments not an isolated case.
