Mother Nature has her ways of testing our priorities. Searing sun and biting bugs will challenge the resolve of the even the most dedicated. That's why we combined our InsectShield® and SolarFlex® technologies in our BugStopper® SunSleeve™. The ultralight sleeves keep two of Mother Nature's most tenacious hazards at bay, biting bugs and hot sun. The quick-drying, breathable sleeves are curved for a natural fit that stay where you want them, so you can keep your eyes on the water and your hands on the rod.
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.
