The adult version of this hat won an Editors’ Choice Award in 2018, and the kid’s version packs the same great features into a tinier product. From sun to rain to snow, we reached for this hat to shelter our favorite little faces. This cap boasts 50+ UPF plus a neck cape to increase sun protection on long days outdoors. “This is set-it-and-forget-it sun protection,” one parent says. “I never had to worry if my 5-year-old’s neck was covered. And it’s so light it didn’t bother him to wear it.” The Ultra Adventure Storm has a cinch to customize fit, and is also waterproof, so it keeps kids’ heads dry on rainy hikes without the confining feeling of a hood.
