Does your old toque leave your ears out in the cold? Is your trusty beanie not so trusty on windchill days? Sunday Afternoons’ Alpine Quilted Trapper is your new must-have for the harshest winter conditions. Made from 100% recycled main body fabric with Primaloft Aerogel Cross Core insulation, this hat means business. We found the Quilted Trapper very warm—a little too warm for ski-touring unless you’re in extra-cold, exposed conditions. But it’s very versatile: Quilted ear flaps can be worn up or down, and the brim is crushable for optimal packability.

Like all Sunday Afternoons headgear, it boasts UPF 50+ sun protection. And the brim is especially welcome for cutting down on glare—an option that typical winter headwear can’t offer.
