The Boonie Hat is a wearable hat used by Viet Cong guerillas, North/South Vietnamese civilians, and in limited numbers with PAVN special operations units in ArmA 3. It was added with the release of the S.O.G. Prairie Fire Creator DLC.


A wide brim hat, it is often worn by Vietnamese civilians as an alternative to the Non La for shade against the sun. Members of the Viet Cong and the PAVN's elite Dac Cong operatives also wear Boonie Hats in lieu of their standard-issue pith helmets.

No matter the variant, all Boonie Hats weigh 10 "mass" units. They do not provide any safety from small arms fire or explosions.


  • Green: All-green colour scheme.
  • Black: All-black colour scheme.

Military/guerilla versions of both colour schemes are also available, featuring an emblem of either the People's Army of Vietnam or the Viet Cong.
