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:

    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.

        Very lightweight hat, wicks sweat so the hat doesn't get heavy on my head. Great protection against sun on my face and neck.
