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.

Wish the fingers were longerThese are great gloves. Love that they have open palms and the fabric is lightweight. But I wish that the little and ring finger lengths were longer. I have a sun allergy that impacts the backs of my hands AND the backs of the fingers. I would love to have the fingers go all the way to the bottom of the nail bed. Even too long is better than too short as I can roll the excess back. I tried getting a larger size but the finger lengths were still too short.
Would love to see a version of these with longer fingers on all of them!
Simms Customer Service: Hi Virginia, We appreciate your feedback and we will relay your thoughts onto our Product Design Team. Thank you.
ProtectionSolid pair of lightweight gloves to keep my hands protected all day. I actually forget I’m wearing them while fishing.
Awesome! Buying moreBecause of the open-palm design, I can comfortably wear them all day in 100+ Arizona summer heat...I forget I have them on. The open-palm design also allows me to grip my sports equipment safely.
I have been using 3 pairs for a year (use them every weekend +)...they are holding up well, as long as I'm careful about taking them off. After a year, the stitching is getting fragile enough that it can break if I attempt to pull the glove off too hastily.
Absolutely Not Worth ItHad high hopes for these.
Once wet, the fabric stretches to the point that it interferes with fishing.
After just a few hours of fishing, and a handful of fish, stripping guards are already cut up - doubt these will be at all useful after another outing.
Great gloves, don't last longLoved these gloves, but they only lasted about 10 outings on the drift boat. Multiple holes appeared in both gloves. Bummer.

DECENT GLOVES BY ADRIANBought these gloves because of cuts from fishing lines. At first the gloves worked great, unfortunately after about the third day of use I got a hole right on the cut. I had to use my right hand glove backwards on my left hand to protect the cut.
[Response from Simms Customer Care Team] - Thanks for the review Adrian. The gloves shouldn't have gotten a hole in them after 3 days of use. Please contact our repair center at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can gather more information.
Great designThese gloves are perfect for keeping your hands and wrists protected from the sun. Very comfortable with great design - the palm vent helps hands stay cooler, they snap together as a pair in between uses (brilliant!), and there is a handy loop to remove them easily.
I'm not a fisherman, but am currently allergic to the sun, and these allow me to enjoy the outdoors, worry-free. I wish they were available in a flesh tone.
I will add that the first pair I received had a defect, and the customer service at Simms is top notch. They shipped the replacements right away and were very pleasant to do business with. Thank you Simms!
Good fit and great protectionJust finished up 11 days in Ambergris Caye, Belize and these gloves more than passed the test. The fit was perfect...The leather landed right where it needed to protect my hands from the sun, stripping line, and those strong permit and tarpon takes. At the same time, I was able to be nimble for tying and taking photos. They truly became a second skin. Vast improvement over the thinner versions of the past. Nice job, Simms.
pretty goodI have had these gloves about two weeks now. Seem to be pretty good. I'm use to wearing fingerless in the winter so no problems with fit or feel. Hands protected. Saturday was a scorcher so no matter what you wore (uness it was an ice bucket) you were hot. Sizing was perfect.
Great productNice gloves. Serves perfect the purposse of protection from the sun. Light and you dont even feel you have them on...I still got to try them on fighting a big fish, I believe the leather protecting the index finger could be a bit light, but I still got to check that out. Great product do.
Great fit, durable for how thin they areAt first I was worried that these gloves wouldn't last a week due to how thin the material is but so far (20+ days of use) so good. The pads on the first two fingers help do a good job in helping you control the line when stripping so that's a plus. Fit was right on for me and I would say my hands are of average proportion and size. If you're looking for gloves to use for rowing or poling then the ones with fully padded palms might be a little better but for fishing these are great.
Great glovesI love the solarflex sun gloves. Great coverage from the sun. I always get cuts on my fingers from stripping my line but with these gloves I no longer have any problems.
