Columbia Bora Bora Booney II Hat
Perfect walking hat!
This hat is great! It is light, comfortable (adjustable) and looks sporty, not dorky. Actually, I wore it today on the boardwalk and a complete stranger told me I looked "WOW". That was unexpected, but it must have something to do with the hat!! I like this for travel (fits in suitcase and is crushable) and I will be able to sit in beachchair and this pliable hat will allow me to rest my head back. I tucked the chin straps up inside, but will use them when walking in a stiff wind. I love the adjustable one-size and I LOVE the ventilated strip. I could feel the breeze on my head, yet I was protected from the sun. I just ordered this in another color! Great hat!

Great for all outdoor activities
I have one of these hats which I used last summer for hiking, nature photography, leading trail tours and kayak lake tours. I decided to purchase another this season in a different color. Very light but quite rugged. It packs very easily when I do photography trips. The brim does not get in my way when I'm looking through the viewfinder like a baseball hat. I would recommend this hat to anyone doing most any outdoor activity. When it gets windy you can cinch it down and change the size with the bungie cord in the hatband. A great product but then it's Columbia. Enough said!

I am the owner/operator of a landscape business in PA. I couldn't be happier with it! The cinch in the back allows you to tighten it on windy days and loosen it up when not. The brim is larger than my last booney and keeps the back of my neck completely shaded. The brim is larger than other booney hats I've owned/tried. On a side not, it is made of synthetic material and is very thin and light. The hat was large for my head (mine measures about 22") but the cinch takes care of that. I have only used this hat for a few weeks, so I cannot comment on durability.

Light, Cool, Comfortable
As an avid kayak fisherman, I need as much protection as possible from the South Florida sun. I typically wear a baseball cap with a buff but it isn't always comfortable to wear the buff all day. So I was looking for something with a brim to keep the sun off my face, and especially my ears. This Booney is perfect for the job.
It is super lightweight and very comfortable and I had no problem wearing it all day. When the sun gets really hot, I can poor some cold water on it without it getting heavy and soggy. I love it.
