Sportswear Product Care
Machine wash cold with like colors. Use mild detergent. Gentle cycle. Do not use fabric softeners. Do not use bleach. Tumble dry low. Do not iron.
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.
- Very comfortable Review by MaryS
OverallI am confident that this offers full protection from the sun. The fabric is light and comfortable and I like your choices of styles. I wish the neck were longer, perhaps with the option to open the bottom of the seams so it could cover the top chest area left exposed in your crew neck shirts. Still looking for a Simms-only solution for total coverage, but really like this for covering the face and neck.

- No good for anyone with a thicker neck. Review by BRJ
OverallItem is cut very small. It rides up in the back and exposes the back of your neck. Tight cut and shape makes you constantly mess with it to make sure it's actually doing what it's supposed to.
[Response from Simms Customer Care Team] - Thanks BRJ. Any chance you could provide us with the size of your neck. That information would be valuable to the product team. Please contact us at 888-585-3570

- New Sun Gaiter Review by Thunder
OverallSimms changed the cut of the new Sun Gaiter from the original design. The original gaiter was great for guys with thick necks but the new design is very restrictive. I wish you'd bring back the original gaiter or make two sizes.

- This thing is amazing Review by Alex
Overallthis is my first time using a sungaiter and I gotta say I am really impressed. I work installing solar panels in the Central Valley in California so it gets pretty hot out here.The Sun gaiter is not too tight on my face and it keeps my face cool. I will definitely be investing in buying more specially for the upcoming summer

- Awesome product Review by Tyler
OverallDefinitely the best neck and face sun protection on the market. This is the third one that I have tried and am finally pleased with it. Fits great and works just as well. Vents work well also to help keep cool on hot summer days. Also stays up well when running across the lake at high speeds. Happy with my purchase.

- Outstanding Review by Captain Duck
OverallAs a full time Captain, I'm in the sun and wind everyday. After making several trips to the skin doctors, I realized that I had to take action. I tried several face masks but until I got my Simms mask I had not been happy. I can now wear the mask in comfort and know that I have the protection I need!
