This is the boonie cap issued within the US Army. The boonie cap has a floppy brim that goes all the way around. This kind of brim is great for keeping the sun of the wearers neck and ears when out in the open. The brim measures about 2.5?.
It is also nice for when it’s raining by helping keep it off the ears and neck more so than a regular hat. There are wire mesh vents in the top to help keep the wears head cool. Around the cap is loose webbing loops. These can be used for attaching small items to the hat, typically used to attach local vegetation for increased camo. There is a simple draw string for securing the cap to the wearers head.
These hats do not stretch at all so you will need exact or very close sizing.
