  • 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.

cool look, can't wear um.. Review by speyed
very cool look....really would like to like them..

two things

the drawstring, velcro tab mean you have to drop um just about to take a leak...drawstring drives me nuts...

I'm not sure if its the material inside the shorts or the edges of the drawstring velcro assembly....but these shorts skin my junk...Ha Ha till it happens to you and your a mile up river hiking back. Tried every position imaginable and nothing helped...painful as hell...I don't wear shorts under shorts to wet these are useless to me now..

Back to my good old guide shorts...homely but comfortable!!

Great fit, drys quick, decent cargo pockets. Review by Exceeded expectations
I'm not one to buy anything online without seeing the product in person first. I was coming up on a fishing trip to Hawaii and wanted a good pair of shorts to pack so I went out on a limb and ordered a pair. One thing I should mention is a size 34 waist fits like a size 36 waist. The overall length was perfect; I didn't feel like Larry Bird while I was out there in the flats off Honolulu. The bottom of the shorts just covers the knee. The overall fit and comfort far exceeded my expectations. I'm thinking about buying another pair just to wear around the house. I highly recommend these shorts for any surf angler or anyone looking for a quick drying short that packs easy.

Sizing/labeling way off Review by Heapstack
Simms tags/labeling on these shorts says XL. Open the booklet, and the sizing chart says XL is 40-42" waist. Tag inside the shorts says XL. The sticker that says "surf short blue cloud camo" says 38" waist. Wish I'd have seen the conflicting info before I bought them. Way to small. Cmon Simms.
