We bought hats like these 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 both our faces and our neck. Another necessary feature is the strap which keeps them on protecting us, even if the wind is blowing. We find that 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?”

In Australia this hat 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. They are very common and you see them everywhere downunder.
