Made from a high-quality 50/50 polyester-cotton blended fabric specially developed for the Pitchfork product line, the modern re-interpretation of the classic boonie jungle hat will become your trusted companion – no matter if in hot, cold or rainy conditions. The fabric has a technologically advanced "near infrared" (nIR) treatment to reduce the visual signature when viewed through a modern military night vision device.
While keeping the classic shape of a boonie hat, the top is slightly slanted measuring 40mm high in the front and 50mm in the back. On the upper area a 50 x 50mm loop surface can be found to attach an IR reflective patch. On the sides eyelets for air circulation can be found: Small enough to keep rain out, large enough to ensure basic ventilation. Around the hat we used the same polyester-cotton material instead of stiff webbing ensuring an all-around low IR signature. Hidden underneath the circumference a shock cord is sewn in that allows infinitely variable size adjustment for a perfect fit, keeping the selected size by a cord stopper in the back. The brim is slightly less wide than usual. Just right as we find. All other features found on standard models like the chin strap or a neck cover have been left away. Functionality thru simplicity.
The Pitchfork Boonie Hat is available in S/M (55-58 cm) and L/XL (59-62 cm).
