Designed for hot and sunny adventures.
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. It's light but durable polyester fabric blocks 98% of UV rays and is treated with a water-resistant finish, while the hat itself features mesh ventilation along the brim to help keep your head cool and comfortable when you're scrambling along slickrock or exploring hidden side canyons.

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
