A boonie hat is a style most people recognize but few know the name of. It is a common hat used in military operations, and has a wide brim, similar to a fishing hat. The difference is that the boonie hat usually has a brim that is both wider and stiffer to keep it in place and prevent flopping. The boonie hat is usually meant to be part of a camouflage outfit and generally comes in various shades of camouflage pattern as well as in tan for desert use.

The boonie hat also has a bad around it that is designed to hold vegetation, allowing the wearer to have an even better source of camouflage when needed. The history of the boonie hat is generally traced to Australia, where similar hats are referred to as bush hats, or Australian bush hats. The US military took on the style of hat during the Vietnam War, and it has been a staple of the military uniform ever since.

The boonie hat is a popular choice today among hunters and fishermen, and even just for people looking for a great summer hat to keep the sun out of their eyes while working in the yard. Because of the military connection, the boonie hat manages to convey a sense of respect and power that other wide-brim hats do not.

They are also available from military surplus sources, which is a great choice if you want your boonie hat to be truly authentic. Since they have become so popular, many different manufacturers have started to make them, and they are sold from popular retailers around the world as well as through internet retailers.

Both types of boonie hat offer sun protection and of course the ability to provide camouflage.
