WELLENBRECHER 'WAVE BREAKER' BOONIE HAT

Well·en·brech·er from the German wellen 'wave' and brecher 'breaker'

The perfect companion to our field shirt, the Wellenbrecher boonie is a brand new addition to our "Wave 2" release. Each boonie is dyed identically to the jacket, and matches well due to it's identical fabric blend. Details on the dying process below:

Wellenbrecher's unique coloration results from a special dying process applied to a German desert Tropentarn donor hat. Unlike standard "over-dying" we use a reactive dye which only binds to cotton fibers. Wellenbrecher's slightly iridescent blue-gray appearance is color fast, and will not leach or fade. Post dying, your hat is clear of residual chemicals and clean enough to put in a baby's mouth.

 

Delivery Time:

Wellenbrecher boonie hats will be shipping the week of August 20th, after which they will be a normal in stock ready-to-ship product. Honestly though, they will likely be sold out well before then. We do not have very many.

Sizing:

Measure the widest circumference around the top of your forehead where the lip of the hat would rest. This measurement in cm is your European hat size.

Color Bias:

The color of the tan in the Tropentarn affects the dye result. Not all Tropentarn jackets are the same. There is roughly a 10% difference in color. Ranging from light khaki to a more yellow sand. This base color effects the Wellenbrecher dye result. You can compare the photos below to get an idea of what to expect. We can make no promises to as to the hue you will receive.

Specs:

  • 35%/65% Poly Cotton mix, dyed permanently 
  • Generous amount of heat vents in crown of the hat
  • Leather buckled chin strap

Condition:

We have sorted all of our donor boonie hats carefully. Expect a clean, quality product with no damage.

  • Snaps on the crown and brim to fold a side of the hat
