SOD Boonie Hat

We first published this article in June of 2008. Even today, we still feel that Italy-based SOD manufacturers the finest Boonie Hat available. In addition to Crye MultiCam and the standard Green and Tan colorschemes, SOD offers several Italian camo patterns. If you are looking for a Boonie, this is the one to get.

This is the first in a series of articles on the SOD line of products. I have already made mention of the attention to detail that the crew at SOD pays to their designs. For their boonie, they started with Crye’s already fantastic design and improved it even further.

The design features a wide brim with multiple stitching reinforcements. It is a little wider than the Crye hat but not was stiff as the Crye. The pile tape and, nylon webbing camo band, and barrel lock are all treated with the Multicam pattern.

The sweatband is terry cloth as used in the Australian boonie hat.

Additionally, where the Crye boonie has only one slash vent backed with mesh netting, the SOD features two.
