Originating as a military garment, boonie hats became popular items for anyone spending time outdoors — especially in the sun. Designed to offer significant protection from ultraviolet rays, these hats feature a broad brim that encircles the entire hat. Incorporating a lengthy strap that falls just in front of the ears, it’s easy to secure these hats in place during windy conditions. Perfect for gardening, fishing, or hiking in Saratoga State Park!!
