The Simms Currents Hoody is a long sleeve shirt/hoody hybrid garment exhibiting a mid-weight construction that is ideal for wear year round. Part of Simms Solarflex line of sun protection gear, the Currents Hoody provides UPF30 sun protection for all-season wear. As is always the case with Simms Fishing gear, the Currents hoody possesses the latest in fabric technology and most desirable performance features including moisture wicking nature and appreciated antimicrobial finish exclusive to Simms COR3 fabric tech.
The Currents Hoody is constructed using flat-seams which are essential to the garment's comfort and it's durability. Flat, or felled seams, are becoming more and more popular in sportswear as they are incredibly durable and less likely to get caught on obstructions - what's more, they are very comfortable against the body. Minimalist, lucid style stems from clean lines and full hood. The design of this hoody is unique in a number of ways - it's very simple and understated, without any unnecessary extras such as cords, drawstrings or pockets. From skiff runs to coastal streets to National Park beats and beyond, whatever the mission holds hunker down with this full-time hoody for exceptional head-to-hem comfort.
We offer the Simms Currents Hoody in two colors: concrete gray and white. Available in four sizes: Medium - XXL.

Currents Hoody Fabric Technology
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 Simms 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.
UPF30 Sun Protection
At Simms, sun protection is a critical component of their sportswear offering. Through a combination of fabric construction, design and finish, Simms offers 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 30 will allow only 1/30th of the sun's UV rays to pass through. This means the fabric will reduce your skin's UV radiation exposure significantly. All of Simms UPF finishes last the life of the garment, an industry standard of 30 washings.
