Product Care

Sportswear Product Care

Machine wash cold with like colors. Use mild detergent. Gentle cycle. Do not use bleach. Tumble dry low. Iron inside-out.



  • 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.

  • 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 30 will allow only 1/30th 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.

Great shorts! Review by Jeff
Absolutely the best shorts I've ever worn. They are my summer uniform, lightweight, cool, fast drying. Wish they had two back pockets. A little disappointed they no longer come in the cinder color.

Superlight Short Review by Scotty
Lightweight, durable, do what they say. Durable enough to take the abuse from poling and dry super fast! I'm a 32-33 and a Medium fits perfect.

Light Review by KH
I'm a big fan of Simms clothing as it always performs and wears well. These shorts are no exception. Very light and comfortable. However I was surprised it only has one back pocket! A quick look at other Simms shorts, most have only one back pocket. And it's located on the right side. Since I usually put my wallet in the left pocket it's a slight annoyance. Simms, I'd love to see all your shorts have two back pockets!

superlight shorts Review by dale Perez
I wear my superlights everyday during the hotter months and they keep me cool and comfy. They extremely durable against the rigors of boat poling. These are the best fishing shorts I have ever worn.
