The Foundation's Seal of Recommendation is granted to sun protection products that have been reviewed by and meet the stringent criteria of an independent Photobiology Committee. One of the first programs offered by the Foundation, it quickly gained acceptance from consumers for setting the standard for effective sun protection with sunscreen products, sunglasses, specially treated auto and residential window film, umbrellas, clothing and laundry products that wash UV protection into clothing. To earn the Seal of Recommendation, a manufacturer must provide scientific data showing that its product sufficiently and safely “aids in the prevention of sun-induced damage to the skin.” The data are reviewed by a volunteer committee of photobiologists – experts in the study of the interaction between ultraviolet radiation and the skin.

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 useful for sun and cold. Review by Gordon
OverallI find these good for sun protection and for extra warmth on cooler mornings. They are light easy to carry and cool on even the hottest day especially if you dip them in the water from time to time. No more sun block thanks Simms.

- Very Coarse fabric made large blisters on elbows Review by platypus
OverallI recently bought a pair of blue/green cami sunsleeves as I really like the beige ones I bought last year to use for paddling. I noticed the fabric on the cami sleeves was MUCH coarser than the beige.
I wore them for 4-41/2 hrs paddling, and only realized they had caused very large blisters on the back of my elbows when I put my elbows on a table that evening, also irritated the general area so it was inflamed and swollen with fluid. ( Now 4 days later, they are sores and the skin is still quite tender.)
I was unaware of any elbow discomfort while paddling, other than noticing that generally the fabric felt coarse on my forearms.
The store accepted them back and I bought a second beige pair. We checked the fabrics of all the sun gaiters, sungloves and other cami sleeves - the only thing that is coarse is the cami sleeve.
Can't imagine why Simms made the cami gloves & gaiters in a nice fabric, but not the sleeves. Hope they fix that!
Otherwise, I love the beige sleeves.

- Just As Described Review by Nate Taylor - Denver
OverallLet me start by saying that I love the sun sleeve. What I think makes it great is that it not only protects you from the sun, but on the evening ride home he keeps you warm. Non slip upper arms ensures that it stays where you want it and the oversized bottom allows the sleeve to cover the top of your hands. If you like head buffs then you will love this product.
