We bought these hats in Western Australia and they quickly became our favorites. We like them because they fold up and we can easily have them with us, they keep the sun off our faces and necks, they have a strap so they stay on even if the wind is blowing, they keep our heads cool, and although they aren’t waterproof – they will keep the rain off your face.

The sun’s rays are very hot in Australia and they have a high incidence of skin cancer, so they are very serious about wearing hats when outdoors. If you are out in the sun without a hat, your friend will likely say, “Hey mate. Where’s your hat?”

Laurie thinks these hats are a bit silly looking, but we wear them anyway, because of all their great features. We discovered that the best place to buy them is from an Australian store on Ebay. Their price is really low and customer service is great too.

In Australia this hast is known as a Kimons, Boonie, Military Hat, Bucket Hat, Fishing Hat, Camping Hat, Hunting Hat, Wide Brim Hat, Outback Hat, or an Outdoor Hat.
