Our Solar Sombrero is made with 100% lightweight nylon with HT Teflon® treatment and features a wide brim.
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.
Nice fit, classy appearance but the fabric in the crown is thin and does not give me comfort that it will protect my head from the sun. I placed a bandana in there, now and all is well.

Have had this hat for a couple of weeks now. It's big but that is okay with me, rather too big then too small. nice wide brim. Stayed on my head even with boat up on plane. Light weight. Good covereage to ears and back of neck.

Best hat for sun protection. Very light and love the detachable neck strap. The fit and feel is "just right".

Picked one up @ Duranglers last week. Without a doubt the best summer fishing hat I have ever owned. Warning this hat will not make you a better flyfisher or increase your catch!
