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.
- Excellent!, needs one minor improvement Review by JaPaK
OverallThis is an awesome hood! I love it. it is comfortable and air flows through material very well so I don't get hot.
There is one minor flaw that needs to be addressed. This is my second hood and I bought the first one about 3 months ago. The first one was also great but the holes in the mouth area of the material stretched out a lot after only 3 months time. I was hoping the new one I just received last week would have had improvements in this area but it did not. If Simms will address this issue with some stitching around the holes or some other fix, it will be perfect. Please note that I am a charter captain in Florida and I have worn my hood 70 of the last 90 days and so it has been used well.
I highly recommend this product!
