Exploring the deserts of the Southwest requires a hat that's light, sun-blocking and breathable, and the Sunday Afternoons Women's Quest Hat satisfies all of these requirements.

Quest Hat product video
For all the ladies who venture into the great wide open, the Quest Hat was designed by a woman with you in mind. It has to be functional—lightweight fabrics, integrated wicking sweatband, strategic ventilation—but it has to look great too, so we’ve given you several colors to choose from. Maybe your day’s quest is to summit a fourteener, or maybe you just want to find an ice cream cone. Either way, the Quest is always along for the ride.
Great for river trip but...
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
The color and breathability on this hat make it perfect for dry desert heat, but it does run a bit small. I'd recommend sizing up to be safe. This would be sweet for a river trip, but on my most recent backpacking trip, I found the stiff back brim to be bothersome against the brain of my pack. One thing I really love is the thin wire in the brim that allows you to mold it to your preference...and that's kind of unheard of for a hat that packs down as well as this one. Overall, I'm digging it.

Really great breathability, even in dry desert heat
