The Simms Women's Sungaiter keeps your skin safe longer thanks to Solarflex UPF50 stretch fabric.Read more...
The blue skies and sandy shores of the tropics beckon. Spending a full day under the sun requires stepping up your sun coverage. The Simms SunGaiter™ 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. A longer cape for enhanced neckline coverage, and enough height to fit over the back of your fishing cap. This newly styled women's sungaiter has a hole in the back of it to slip a ponytail through.
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.
