The durable and flexible sleeve construction supports a range of movement, letting you cast from any angle. The hoodie features a flat-seam finish that creates a plush, next-to-skin feel.

FABRIC TECH: 100% polyester

Technologies

  • Products using the COR3™ Technology fabric finish have a UPF rating of 30 or greater, properties to minimize odor and outstanding wicking performance for important moisture management. The anti-odor finish helps control odors caused by a wide range of microorganisms (mold, mildew, algae, yeast) is compatible with virtually all fabrics. All of our performance cotton clothing utilizing COR3™ also feature COR3™ EZ. The "EZ" means easy care and indicates that garments featuring this treatment will travel well and resist wrinkles.

  • 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.

Sportswear Product Care

Machine wash cold with like colors.  Use mild detergent.  Gentle cycle. Do not use fabric softeners.  Do not use bleach.  Tumble dry low.  Do not iron.

  1. Short and sweet consideration

    80%

    I have acquired at least 50 of the hoodie and non-hoodie SPC50 shirts since they were first released. Being an avid wingshooter, trap, skeet and Striper sportsman these were my go to, recommend to everyone warm weather sun protection shirt. However, last week I visited a Bass Pro and while wading through the clothing, stumbling into an old clothing friend (UA), there it was. Yes friends a UA hoodie but better constructed (personal preference) than my beloved Simms Hoodies. Being 10 bucks lighter than the same same for my Simms Hoodies did catch my eye (at first), but frankly at 71.5 years old I really didn't spend much time worring about saving 10 bucks a shirt, I tried it on and I'll be damned it was the hood portion (paneled) that sold me on UA's new and improved version. Yes it was the structure that layered onto my hat allowing for complete easy of movement for all of the cross-over uses that grabbed my immediate attention. (One note about why, I'm a large normally but for all my outdoor activities using a XX or even better a XXX size accomplishes exactly what I want, shade and sun protection, and most importantly no/zero restrictions for shooting and/or any type of fishing) Now I'd probably not considered the 10 bucks savings if the [other brand] wasn't simply better constructed and removed the floppiness of the Simms Hoodies I so dearly loved (still great products, but just one man's experienced opinion here). So try them both on, it's always great to have two patterns giving us choices for our specific needs.

  2. Perfect for long floats

    100%

    I bought a Solarflex hoodie off a fellow guides recommendation and have since bought more. I couldn't ask for a more comfortable shirt to wear while rowing in the heat of the summer or even on the occasional day off, hiking into the backcountry, this shirt keeps me cooled off and extremely protected from the sun with the hood. Great job with this one Simms!
  3. LS spc50 Hoodie fishing/hunting crossover pullover shirts

    100%

    Being a long time patron of everything SIMMS, 3 decades, these LS Hoodie spc50 shirts are used for both fishing Stripers in Quebec and all Trap, Skeet, dove, quail hunting, etc., wherever sun protection is needed. At times they'll be layered over each other for warmth, and perhaps more protection from the sun.
  4. Better than expected

    100%

    I got one of these for a mangrove fishing trip in Mexico. It was terrific. I could wear it with the hoodie up and a baseball cap and it covered my ears and neck and part of my face. It was cool and I wore it all day even it very hot sun. The thumb holes on the sleeves were also great keeping the sun off my hands. I liked it enough that I bought another one.
  5. The SunShirt!

    100%

    This Shirt is everything that it claims to be, the coolest fitting long sleeve shirt I've ever worn.
    Wear it 3 days in a row, it won't smell!
  6. My New Perfect Drift Boat Shirt

    100%

    What a great Summer Drift Boat shirt. 50 UPF for sun protection and the extremely comfortable fabric keeps me COOL in the direct sun. I love being able to pull the hood up over my hat for hot sun protection and when outside temperature cools down, I slide on a Simms Fleece and the hood keeps my head warm. Another winner for the Simms Team!
  7. Favorite fishing shirt

    100%

    I wear this hoody every time I'm on the water. I never get sunburned, it's light and fits great.
  8. Everyone should own one of these!

    100%

    I bought this hoody for a two week trip to Wake Island to do some flats fishing. I have been looking for a lightweight sun hoody for many years and finally found what I was looking for. The fit is great! I'm 6'1" and 175lbs and the medium fits great and has long enough sleeves for my arm length. The ability to pull the hood up to cover your neck from the sun or hold your hat on in the wind was a huge bonus. I know this piece will end up on spring ski trips as well to help protect me from the reflected sun off the snow. I will warn consumers that fresh cut coconut juice will stain the shirt, who knew?!
