Providing the extended shade coverage the boony style hat is known for, the Glacier Glove Boonie Sun Hat offers anglers sun protection for their entire face and back of the neck. Glacier Glove has been an industry staple for over 30 years, known for their quality neoprene gloves that are used by commercial fishermen and dock workers, they have recently expanded into other markets. Their line of sun protection products displays the same level of quality that made them the leader in outdoor performance gloves. The Boonie Sun Hat is designed after the popular outback style boony hats that were first developed by Australian outdoorsmen who sought additional sun protection that their standard headwear simply could not offer. Glacier Glove took the idea a step further with their removable universal shade that extends down the back of the neck to the shoulders blocking sun from the areas that seemingly get burned no matter how many precautions are taken. The extended shade can be seen above in the photos - its that length of fabric on the back of the hat.
The entire Boonie is comprised of a lightweight material that is very cool and light on the head. Perfect for wear in any outdoor situation, but really excels for fishermen as it not only offers coverage, but also keeps shade in the field of vision for better sight when looking at fish. Whats more, the material possesses a UPF 50+ sun protection rating that shades over 97% of the sun's uv rays. One size fits most, however, the addition of the chin strap and cinching bead allows wearers to get a better, tighter fit to the head.
We offer the Glacier Glove Boonie Sun Hat in a single size available in the khaki color pictured.
