A Boonie Hat is a camouflaged hat that is worn by armed forces personnel all over the world. They come in many different camouflage styles, as prevalent in the military uniforms of different countries. These have a shallow crown and a stiff, flat brim that doesn’t bend down.
Boonie hats are mostly made of cotton and other breathable materials and often have side vents or a mesh component to make them wearable in hot weather. They have a chin strap to keep them in place and can also have features such as a neck flap or a mosquito mesh as per specific requirements.
