Description

Australian military forces issued these hats to troops in the Second World War. The design was adapted from British Army hats that were issued to soldiers in hot climates. It’s different from a patrol cap, which does not have a brim all the way around. How to Wear a Boonie Hat You’ll notice most boonie hats have a fabric tape band around the crown. This will feature a series of branch loops. Modern anglers may use this to store small pieces of gear. Soldiers had a different use for them. It does take practice to wear a hat like this. To get the position right and to figure out how to get it on and off without a lot of effort. Once you have it down, it should be comfortable and effective. The Tied on Top Method If you don’t want the strap, some companies do make “modified” boonie hats. They may have extra bands in the crown to keep it tight on your head. This would be a better solution than a removable strap. Some companies offer these as well, but it may be a waste. The odds on losing a removable strap are high. The Bottom Line Some people prefer to wear a boonie hat without the strap. You can loop the strap over the top of the hat and tie it in place. It gives the hat a cowboy look, which can be cool. This gets rid of the strap problem but makes new ones. If it’s a sunny day, you are at a greater risk of burns. The tied strap is going to pull up the brim at the sides. Also, any wind will pull your boonie hat off.

When military forces were using boonie hats during the Vietnam War, this was a foliage ring. Troops would stuff vegetation into those rings. It increased camouflage for added protection. You can tighten the strap to prevent choking hazards. Many people find this uncomfortable, though. The Rear Strap Loose Method You may hear the term giggle hat used interchangeably with boonie hat. A giggle hat is the Australian Army version of the boonie hat. The difference is minimal, but there is one. The Australian Army giggle hat should have a thinner brim. If your brim is in your way, there are solutions. The easiest way to fix a problem with a wide boonie hat brim is to tilt your hat. Adjust its position so you can see what you need to see. The Under Hat Method

Why do Wales fans wear bucket hats?

Boonies are a multi-use sort of hat. You can adapt them from casual everyday wear to hunting and fishing. They offer superior protection and a lot of advantages over similar hats. Just make sure it’s the kind of cap you want. If the string is too annoying to you, try a slouch hat or a patrol cap. There are a lot of quality fishing hats with smaller brims as well. People may also call this a bush hat. A bush hat is often characterized by a wide brim that is down. That’s where the name slush hat also comes from. Some people prefer this method because of how it pulls the brim aside. Those not used to a boonie hat and the wide brim sometimes find it annoying. And it’s true, the brim of a boonie hat can obscure your vision. However, the wide brim is a feature of the hat. It keeps rain and sun away better than other hats. Also, remember the purpose of a boonie hat. This was something a soldier would wear as camouflage. Troops didn’t want a hat that defined their face. The brim is good at obscuring you from view.

The design of a boonie hat is ideal for hot, humid conditions. It can keep rain off your face and prevent moisture loss through sweating. It shields you from the sun and allows air circulation.Similar to the tied on top method, instead of looping it over the hat, do it under. The strap is on your head but under the hat. This is better at avoiding sunburns. However, in a tight fitting hat, this will be very uncomfortable. The Strapless Method Let’s take a look at what a boonie hat even is, where they came from, and how to wear a boonie hat. What is a Boonie Hat? Wearing a boonie hat is not as simple as wearing a ball cap. The retention strap string often throws people for a loop. If you’ve never worn it before, it can be confusing. The Front Strap Method
