TRU-SPEC Military Boonies are a type of military hat designed to provide soldiers with protection from the sun and other environmental elements during combat operations. Boonies were originally developed for use by the US military during the Vietnam War and have since become a popular accessory for military personnel, hunters, and outdoor enthusiasts.
The TRU-SPEC Military Boonies are made of durable, lightweight materials that are designed to withstand harsh conditions. The hat is available in a range of colors and camouflage patterns to match different types of military uniforms and environments. The wide brim of the hat provides ample shade for the face, neck, and ears, while the ventilation holes in the crown of the hat help to keep the wearer cool and comfortable.
TRU-SPEC Military Boonies also feature an adjustable chin strap to keep the hat in place during high winds and other adverse weather conditions. Additionally, the hat can be customized with additional accessories such as insect netting or camouflage netting to provide additional protection and camouflage for the wearer.
Overall, TRU-SPEC Military Boonies are a highly functional and practical accessory for military personnel and outdoor enthusiasts who require protection from the elements while engaging in outdoor activities.
The boonie hat was introduced to the United States Armed Forces during the Vietnam War, when U.S. Army Green Berets began wearing them in the field, along with Australian and Army of the Republic of Vietnam units. These hats were locally procured; the camo cloth was usually salvaged from other uniform items or with the former from a parachute or made up by the tailor. The name is derived from "boonie", the abbreviated form of boondocks (itself originally American military slang derived from Tagalog bundok, "mountain", during the Philippine-American War. Made to current U.S. Military specs.
