- Product Care
Sportswear Product Care
Machine wash cold with like colors. Use non-chlorine bleach. Tumble dry low. Remove promptly from dryer. Dryer sheet not recommended. Low iron.
Products using the COR3™ Technology fabric finish have a UPF rating of 30 or greater, properties to minimize odor and outstanding wicking performance for important moisture management. The anti-odor finish helps control odors caused by a wide range of microorganisms (mold, mildew, algae, yeast) is compatible with virtually all fabrics. All of our performance cotton clothing utilizing COR3™ also feature COR3™ EZ. The "EZ" means easy care and indicates that garments featuring this treatment will travel well and resist wrinkles.
Insect Shield® repellent apparel provides long-lasting, effective and convenient personal insect protection. The active ingredient in Insect Shield® is so tightly bonded to the fabric fibers that it retains effective repellency throughout the lifetime of the product. This is well beyond the lifecycle of most other products on the market which typically last only a number of washes.
At Simms, sun protection is a critical component of our sportswear offering. Through a combination of fabric construction, design and finish, we offer a wide range of clothing that features a minimum UPF of 30 (very good) up to UPF of 50 (excellent). UPF stands for Ultraviolet Protection Factor and indicates how much of the sun's UV radiation is absorbed. A fabric with a rating of 50 will allow only 1/50th of the sun's UV rays to pass through. This means the fabric will reduce your skin's UV radiation exposure significantly. All of our UPF finishes last the life of the garment, an industry standard of 30 washings.
- Love the BugStopper but... Review by Kurt
OverallLove these shirts with the repellent in the fabric. Shirt looks great but I've noticed Simms is cutting the cuffs different called Sun Cuffs. Instead of a traditional straight cut it's tapered so there is "additional" coverage on the top of the hand. Since I'm taller (6' 2") this extra material pulls and gets caught up when I move. The older style with straight cuffs worked perfectly for me.
These would be 5 stars if they can open the cuff a bit or start offering "Tall" sizing!
