ever seen a yellow boonie hat?

Has anyone seen the bright yellow boonie hats that the highway workers wear? I've been looking around for one. They help protect you from the sun plus I think one would be good to wear especially when cutting close to a road. Does anyone on here have one or know where to get one? Thanks.

Yeah, I didn't know the panels were mesh. The top looks like its a solid piece though. Right now I use a khaki color boonie hat and it does a good job covering my face, neck, and ears. I just like the hi-visibility of the other one.

I bought mine from Gemplers. Bass Pro Shop also has some other hats that cover the ears and neck and have UV protection as well.
