It’s nothing special and readily and widely available on the internet, a multicam boonie hat made by Propper with Crye Precision material.

I just got it to take it along on my trip to Greece in July this year. Hopefully it will protect me from the blazing Greek summer sun and not make me look like a complete fool. Although I’m not sure if the latter can be avoided though, hah!

Initially I was looking for a hat to shield me from the harsh sun in Greece and I was thinking what better than a boonie hat?

But which color to pick?

Black, khaki or coyote brown were the ones I had in mind as I didn’t want to get a camo pattern. So I was looking around on Ebay and found various US, European and Chinese sellers. But none of those were really appealing, as their quality didn’t seem on par with the quality of brands like 5.11 or Propper.

Black would be way too hot in the sun and  khaki and coyote brown well just are a tad bit dull and boring.

And I just couldn’t resist getting the multicam version, eventhough I told myself not to get any camo pattern, because I don’t know whether the military guys would like a civvy like me wearing it.

We’ll see how it turns out in July.

There was en error in my previous ebay auction, which prevented people from outside the US to bid on it. I have ended that auction and made a new one.
