Cast into legend by the long range reconnaissance patrols of MACV-SOG during the Vietnam War, the Boonie Hat is an icon of adventure and perseverance. Our Scout RS Boonie Hat carries on that legacy, blending modern materials with the original recce-style design featuring a low-profile crown and narrow brim.
Durable and breathable, our ripstop blend of nylon and cotton has a light DWR finish to resist moisture. Tailorable headband tension and full venting with no-see-um mesh provide all-day comfort.
The Scout's foliage ring, modernized with hypalon, accommodates mosquito netting for comfort and safety. It can also be used to secure ghillie netting or improvised foliage for camouflage.
A discrete, flat pocket under the crown can secure documents, cash, or maps.
