Catching fish on a fly is all about matching the hatch. But what about when the hatch is a swarm of diabolical little needles-with-wings determined to suck every last drop of blood out of your body? Well that's where Simms BugStopper® Net Sombrero comes in. The wide bucket-style lid delivers 360 degree coverage, with the bug-stymieing protection of no-see-um mesh fixed to brim and a drawcord closure at the bottom.
Insect Shield® repellent apparel provides long-lasting, effective and convenient personal insect protection. The active ingredient in Insect Shield® is so tightly bonded to the fabric fibers that it retains effective repellency throughout the lifetime of the product. This is well beyond the lifecycle of most other products on the market which typically last only a number of washes.
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.
