This boonie hat was developed for desert and harsh country usage, with UDT - US Navy Seals from the sixties and seventies in mind when doing the design! As a result from our sketches the boonie became a mix of old and new in the right aggressive look!
This hat is really soft and floppy and could easily be folded, a chinstrap keeps it firmly in place during desert winds and net holes keep warm air flow out from your head and a button on the front can hold your brim up to for example keep masking or mosquito net away from your face or if you just fancy a pirate/cowboy type look!
Durable ripstop fabric gives you a tough product with lots of usage years in it.
The Boonie comes in a anti IR printed m90K Desert camouflage and is Anti mosquito Permethrin treated*
A bit shorter brim than the original Swedish Armed Forces boonie this is set apart as a more compact hat and suitable for being netted for sniper use!
NOTE! From factory the fabric is coated in Permethrin to decrease the risk of biting insects, this is clearly stated in product description, on hangtag on the product!
The anti-mosquito will still have effect after 70 washes in ordinary temperature (20-25℃), but in 60 ℃, it will be kept about 10-20 times washes!
Usage of Permethrin is common on outdoor gear like mosquito netting etc and also for example on US and British uniform clothing. Please note you must also respect the environment – Permethrin is toxic for Cats and Fish (water source), do not expose them for this clothing, we also advise you to clean your treated clothes at a cleaner that has professional cleaning equipment to minimize the Permethrin getting in to the local water. We want you to understand this but leave it up to you as customer to honor the above info. Remember the products were made for usage in deployed environments with disease spreading insects and not for unnecessary use.
