Interesting features on a new boonie hat

I've had one of slangvel's basic (no vents, no tensioning cord, no signal panel) boonies in Multicam twill for quite a while now. It's become my go-to weekend cover for most of the year. Old school cool, indeed!

Seeing this thread makes me think I'm about to be a repeat customer. Thanks Dave!

By the time you cut it, get it sewed, put the VS 17 panel in it $25 is not bad.

Where are you getting plenty of old boonie hats in MC for cheap? Most of the ones I saw were 15-20$.

Why would you come in here and piss on his work? If you don't want one, don't get one. He is doing it and people want it.

This pisses me off to no end. Tell you what, you do one and show it. Then tell us how much you have into it.

Slangvel,
can you a boonie/patrol cap with a terrycloth or chamois headband for absorbing sweat?

Dave,

"South African style paratrooper jacket" sounds pretty neat, man. How's the new job? Sorry I didn't get a chance to see you when you were in this neck of the woods.

Dave,
Glad to see that you are stil making superb patrol hats and boonies. I still have some of your early ones. Gave away several to friends overseas and a few to neighbors here in Florida. Guys he does super work, look forward to the slangvel cut paratrooper MC smock. Make mine XXL.

My neighbor Paul is retired air force from CT, so he got 1st dibbs on one of your awesome military camouflage boonies. He loves to ride his lawn tractor with it on. He is a postal carrier here on base and sometimes I see him wearing the boonie driving home. One satisfied customer. Cool
Wait! There's PCs too?

Slangvel, hoe gaan dit? Of is jou Afrikaans nie baie goed nie?

Have you got a couple of pics of the Para jacket to throw up?

When I saw this boonie, I knew exactly where I'd seen it before.....the SADF....

Good job.

You guys don't have yours yet? I'm wearing mine. My wife says it's goofy but she has no taste in clothes you wear while killing people.

I give it an A+. I'm gonna order some more in different colors.
just got mine in the mail, 5 day turn around from paypal to opening the box. top notch work, got mine with the 1.5 inch brim and some velcro on back for nametape/cat eyes/fun meter and a 1" velcro square on top for IR tape. very impressed. i will be returning the 5.11 boonie i just got and try to get another from slangvel in nutria brown.

Nah.

Only thing I’ve got is a mailman with PTSD from me flinging the door open and yelling "MULTICAM?" when he’s messing with the mail box.

I think they’re gonna make me get a PO box after this…

Imagine poor Sneaky's mailman, when he melts outta the bushes and puts a Randall to his throat..."Out there, you are the lawr...Here, Im da lawr...Let da package go...LET...IT...GO..."(poof, melts back into the bush with his box, while the mailman cries like Sheriff Teasle) Big Grin

Doctorich:

Wish I could have dropped down to see you when I was up in Vermont. I went to Arkansas to open up a new Vet Center for the Department of Veterans Affairs, got that done then reitred early in march. I've seen over 5000 veterans for PTSD/Readjustment Counseling/TBI related issues between 2005 and 2008, that was in addition to my normal duties, needless to say it burn't me out. I developed a unique relationship with the then center director at the VAMC at White River Jct., they say the operational adjective was he "hated" me because I made sure the vets got the needed sevices they were justly due and intitled to. These last couple years helping our veterans has been the icing on the cake/the very best time of my life, as I closed out my professional career.

Will stay in touch, the SA Para Jacket is cut ready for assembly. I can't wait.

Dave
