“This hat kept me burn-free after a summer of guiding in the Utah deserts,” says our tester. “The 2.5-inch brim is just large enough to ensure full coverage of my nose, ears, and neck, but it didn’t interfere with big packs stacked up high behind my head.”

The ¾-inch band of mesh around the top helped vent on baking hot days, and the 100-percent organic cotton is guide-worthy tough. Downside? Sticker shock. $82; 3.5 oz.; tilley.com
