This hat style was worn by early Vietnam advisers and Special Forces. Our high quality replica matches the details and material of those originals. When you turned the hat inside out the bright lining allowed helicopters and aircraft a good visual aid to show “friendly” troops during air strikes or medivac missions. Made of heavy weight cotton with chin tie and air vents.
These Vintage Style Tiger Stripe Camo Boonie Hats are made from original patterns issued during the Vietnam War. These 100% rip-stop cotton reproductions wear just as well today. Feature metal mesh side vents, 3" brim, nylon chin cord and webbing.
