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.
- Comfortable, and they do what they say they will do. Review by Boppa
OverallThese are great. They feel cooler than having your arms bake in the sun, and eliminate the need for slathering sun screen on your arms. One pair lives on my boat, another in my house, and I have given a pair to each of my 3 grown sons.

- great sleeve, if beige Review by platypus
OverallBeige sleeves are cool and comfortable for paddling in FL.
However, the cami sleeves are coarse and irritate the skin, so buy the beige only.

- Great in the Heat Review by GearJunky
OverallI used these on the McCloud river in 90-95 degree heat for 6 days. They did a great job of protecting my skin from sun while letting the breeze through. They were also great to soak in the river through out the day to keep cool!
