Just like the coursing meanders that draw salmonids into the fern-laced recesses of the Pacific Northwest, fishing runs through your life. Simms' Cascadia Cap knows the territory and comes equipped for precip with a waxed cotton canvas façade, a moisture wicking interior sweatband, and a plastic-clip closure. One size fits most.
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.
The material isn't as thick as I expected for an oiled/waxed hat but it will do. Since about all you can find these days in those dang trucker hats, this one will get the job done for fall and winter fishing. The clip closure at the back is my favorite type but it works.
If you fish hard you'll get a season or two out of this hat before you need another one (about like any other hat that sees the elements). But, it's only $25. You can afford to replace it as needed.

Bought this to replace my 5 year old Simms wax cap that was lost recently. The quality has dropped significantly, the material is thinner, the terry sweatband has gone and the velcro has been replaced with a cheap plastic clip that keeps slipping and looks like it will break at any time.

Ever since the days of my being a Duck Hunting Guide in the Mississippi Flyway, I loved a waxed cotton canvas cap. These caps keep your head warm and dry and they look better and better with time and wear. SImms hit the nail on the head with this one too! The comfort and adjustable strap allow this hat to become an heirloom for your offspring!! Yes, it'll be around THAT LONG!
