You’ll love how comfortable you will feel while wearing this impressive headgear, which effectively keeps out the heat and sweat so you don’t end up with a clammy hat.

[/tab] [tab]One user regrets that despite being the best fishing hat on the market, the Booney II only comes in a one-size-fits-all configuration, and it can prove to be too snug for users who have large heads, but will make the perfect headgear for people with average-size heads.

Another user has found issues with the brim, which measures three inches. This can be a concern when worn in high winds as it is flappy, wavy and soft to make it resistant to any efforts of shaping you may want to do with that specific part of the hat. [/tab] [/tabcontent] [/tabs]
