Paracord Hatband for a Boonie Hat

A boonie hat , also known as a bush hat is a form of wide-brim hats what are commonly used by military forces. Its design is similar to a bucket hat but with a stiffer brim. Often a fabric tape band of 'branch loops' is sewn around the crown of the hat. This 'foliage ring' is meant to half additional vegetation as camouflage. A strap provides stability. The crown may be vented with rivets or mesh panels, Snaps may also be provided with which to fix the brim in the style of an Australian bush hat. Here is where you can buy one of these hats but you can go to any army surplus store.

This hatband is very easy to make it may look a little intimidating but its one of the easiest knots I have done so far and it looks awesome! You can use as much paracord as you want; I used 30ft.  This is just one of many different ways I came across that you can tie paracord to your hat. This is the video I used to make it...
