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.
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.
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.
- Awesome Product! Review by Capt. Rob
OverallI was getting ready to move the boat to the Bahamas for 6 months of fishing and needed superior protection from the sun. Took along six SolarFlex Hoodys and after my six months the shirts did not show any wear or tears and my arms, neck and face were pass the test from my dermatologist. SIMMS products are the best and when I finished the day of fishing with the owners friends, I was the one who was not complaining about the brutal Caribbean Sun!!! Thanks SIMMS.....

- Bought for Paddling But Great for Yardwork!!! Review by Susan
OverallHusband and I have both had melanoma and feel much safer out in the sun with this Hoody. Mesh face shield is great not only to keep from fogging up sunglasses, but to help filter out dust, etc when mowing, etc when mowing and doing yard work. Great product. A full hood option would be great too!!!

- Great warm weather sun protection Review by JIM L
OverallBought the shirt for a bonefish trip to the Bahamas. I found it to be cooler than my button-front fishing shirts, and the neck is MUCH cooler than a Buff. Only downside is lack of pockets, but a sling pack took care of that. I ended up washing it out each night and wearing it again because of the comfort and great sun coverage.

- Very functional Review by Jason P
OverallI bought this online just to have for the Summer. Used it on a pack-in trip this past weekend. My bottle of suntan lotion blew up in my pack, so I was glad to have this. Two days on the water without sunscreen and not a hint of sunburn! Lightweight and very comfortable. Only thing I would change is to make it an actual hoody versus the "up and over" neck gaiter style, but that is just personal preference. Doesn't change the function. About to order another for longer pack-in trips!

- great idea, not great fit Review by Shaun
OverallThe material feels great against the skin and I imagine will perform well in the hot summer sun, however the fit leaves something to be desired. I am 6'2" and about 260lbs. I bought the XXL because the XL would have not had long enough sleeves. The XXL has proper sleeve length however is very wide and baggy. It would be nice to have a 'tall' fit as to have the proper length without the bagginess.
