Tiger Stripe Boonie hats, berets and Cowboy hats

At much prompting from kammo-Man to show a few of my tiger boonie hats, Ive decided to start a new thread, since I couldnt find an existing one. If there is, please excuse me :)

 

here are my two favs, both SOG black boonies that reverse to tigerstripe. both are designed the same way with a green band on the tiger side, and what feels like straw sewn inside. Bob at Vintage production has one that is identical and Ive seen two others which are almost identical.

 

thanks

Now that wee hat is one of the most crude boonies I have ever seen , but the funny thing is every one is pretty much the same .Not in a fake way but in that "Hi I have been there and am made from Scraps " way .

They are all stuffed with a weird straw so I am wondering is that to code ??

Keep posting ...

More .. more .

Please

This is my favorite tiger stripe boonie hat.

 

It isn't mine but I hope to have it one day. w00t.gif

 

It was worn by my friend in 70-71 while he was in two III Corps A Dets.

He shortened the brim by simple cutting it.

I don't believe I have ever seen a real tiger stripe boonie hat with a neck cord. This is something that's seen on civilian type tiger stripe pieces.

Nice headgear guys. Paul I am looking forward to you blowing up your pics. If you need help we have a "HOW TO" thread I can point you to.

 

This is an old thread on boonie hats plus there may be several others scattered around the forum.

Are those old photos you are working from? Are they digital or just the printed pic? I may be able to help you and save the printing cost and time. If they are in a form that can be emailed then I can edit them in less that 30 minutes and have them posted. Let me know if I can help in any way.

Here is a quick shot of mine that Paul mentioned. I have put more detailed photos in the pinned tiger stripe thread.

Hi guys, not a boonie or cowboy but how about a baseball cap. I got this in the grouping of a pilot in the 71st SOS, I don't think he wore it much. It has a hideous lime green lining and the number which I assume is a size. The Major's leaf is theater-made, his slant pocket shirt and flight suit have the same style of rank. Mark
