Sun Protection You Can Count On!

Ivan Orsic / Jul 29, 2015

At Simms, sun protection is a critical component of their sportswear offering. Through a combination of fabric construction, design and fishing, they offer a wide range of clothing that features a minimum UPF of 30 (very good) to UPF of 50 (excellent). UPF sindicates how much of the sun's UV radiation is absorbed. A fabric with a rating of 30 will allow only 1/30th of the sun's UV rays to pass through and reduce your skin's UV radiattion exposure significantly.

Simms expanded line of Solarflex offerings continues to deliver ultimate sun protection, bolstered by technically superior designs that fit and performa flawlessly for all on-the-water applications. Anglers will welcome the high-quality UV protection inherent in these mainstay pieces.

Here are our Top 3 Choices:
