I've only worn this once for golf, but the sun protection was great, the One-size-fits worked great, and overall the hat is very comfy.
I would recommend this product.

Love this hat for being outside for a long time.
The strap is comfortable and keeps the hat on even in high wind. I get much better coverage from the sun, and since my skin is very sensitive I can only wear SPF 15.
I would recommend this product.

This is a great sun protection hat. It looks great on and the bonus is that it fits my husband's larger head. Not many hats fit him, even when they are sized as an XL.
BUT, the best color is Black. Please bring back the black color as my husband does not want another color.
I would recommend this product.

Overall, I really like this hat. It works very well for providing shade, and is comfortable. My only wish is that the brim had a little more rigidity to it. When the hat first arrived, it had been folded so that the brim in front of my eyes flopped down and blocked my vision. Fortunately, this hat doesn't "remember" folds and bends very long. That said, the brim does droop a lot. On the plus side, it can be stuffed into a bag with no concern.
I would recommend this product.

Nice, lightweight hat to keep the sun off. Nylon will dry quickly if wet. Definitely needed to cinch it up for proper fit. Can't wait to put it to hard use in the summer.

I couldn't wait for this hat to arrive in the mail as I'm outside everyday working on one project after another. I am so happy to report that I love this hat. It's super light and I find myself forgetting that I even have it on. Blocks alot of sun, which is what I needed. High quality and priced fair.
I would recommend this product.

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.
I would recommend this product.

I like this hat, fit good, and comfortable. But the top of the hat is too thin, way too thin. I don't think this is going to last for long.

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 would recommend this product.

I love this hat. It is lightweight and adjusts to fit any size head. The under chin tie is important on those extremely windy days. I have not had trouble with sunburn on my face since I started using the hat. I still apply sunblock as a precaution since I am very fair skinned. There is really nothing negative to say about the Bora Bora.
I would recommend this product.

I had been looking for a hat of this nature. I have a big brimmed cotton hat that is way to hot for summer use. This one is so light that you hardly notice it. In 2002 I had skin cancer removed from forehead and was even more pleased to see the SPF 50 rating. I look forward to many years wearing this hat and the protection it provides.
I would recommend this product.

This hat was purchased to be part of my gardening wardrobe. It replaces a Columbia hat that no longer appears to be available, and which served me well for many years. Come Spring we'll see how it works. It is certainly oddly designed, and the fabric may not be as stout as it's predecessor.
I do not recommend this product.
