When blue skies and bright sun are the order of the day, it's time to step up your sun coverage. The Simms Sun Hood helps you spend more time on the water with less sun exposure. Made from lightweight, quick-drying stretch fabric, it features laser-cut breathing holes, so you don't feel like you are breathing through a balaclava. It dries quickly and offers your head, face and neck UPF 50 sun protection. It can be worn as a gaiter or fully engaged over your head.
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.
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.

Worth the money. I have tried others but they don't compare

Steching came off first time I used it. Also got a sweater that the lettering came off first time I wore it. Not to happy to pay that much money and this happen. Not a good first time impression.

This is an awesome hood! I love it. it is comfortable and air flows through material very well so I don't get hot.
There is one minor flaw that needs to be addressed. This is my second hood and I bought the first one about 3 months ago. The first one was also great but the holes in the mouth area of the material stretched out a lot after only 3 months time. I was hoping the new one I just received last week would have had improvements in this area but it did not. If Simms will address this issue with some stitching around the holes or some other fix, it will be perfect. Please note that I am a charter captain in Florida and I have worn my hood 70 of the last 90 days and so it has been used well.
I highly recommend this product!
