Mother Nature has her ways of testing our priorities. Biting bugs will challenge the resolve of the even the most dedicated angler. Keep those annoying little buggers off your skin with the tech-heavy BugStopper® Hoody. This men's quick-drying hoody sports InsectShield® for long-lasting relief from biting insects and COR3™ fabric to fight odors and wick moisture to keep you dry through it all. It's rated to UPF 50 for sun protection, and the arms and shoulders are cut for a full range of motion and a natural cast.
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.

I wish I could post some pictures of this shirt for the review. I successfully thru hiked the Pacific Crest Trail this summer from Mexico to Canada from April 15th to September 24th. I wore this shirt EVERY SINGLE DAY. It was my hiking shirt, sun protection, sanity from bug protection, lightweight, breathable, warm enough to block the wind but not too heavy that you felt like you were in a sweat box shirt. From the desert to the summit of Mt. Whitney, to the north Cascades, this thing kicked absolute a**. After almost 3000 miles of constantly wearing my pack, it finally starting wearing down a little (still doesn't have a hole all the way through the fabric) bit in the shoulders underneath the straps. Other than the shoulders, and maybe the smell from wearing it so often in all types of weather and grime and sweat and grit, this shirt is still usable. Thank you for such a fantastic piece of gear and for the help making my hike so comfortable. I had trouble justifying the steeper price tag right away, but after I put it to use, I wish I could buy these for everyone I know.

Did a great job keeping flying pests away while fishing in the Western Woods of Maine this June. Just the right weight to keep me comfortable at night and while fishing and very comfortable. This will definitely be worn when not fishing too.
