Simms Ebbtide LS Shirt
The Simms Ebbtide LS Shirt is a long sleeve sun protection shirt designed to provide the wearer protection from the damaging effects of exposure to UV Rays. Redesigned for Fall 2015, Simms' Ebbtide shirt maintains the same level of quality that made previous versions a favorite among fishermen. Simms constructed the Ebbtide shirts with two things in mind: 1) provide complete sun protection 2) maintain comfort and functionality - they achieved both in this long sleeve UPF50 shirt. Constructed from a 100% polyester dobby fabric, this shirt provides a maximum UPF50 sun protection rating that completely protects the wearer over the entire area the shirt covers. Additionally, Simms lengthened the Ebbtide's shirt cuffs in order to extend the coverage further down the hand. This was a very intelligent decision and one that came about as they tested the shirt. While fishing anglers are always active causing their shirt cuffs to slide up and down.
Levitate toward effervescent waters and commence casting in Simms’ lightweight Ebbtibe shirt. Tailored for clean, versatile living this go-anywhere long-sleeve breathes easy, bucks moisture, and blocks sun with high-strength UPF50 protection. Features include fly box-compatible, hook-and-loop secure chest pockets, back venting with Burltex® mesh lining, and extended cuffs for wrists in need of respite. Straight Hem and Traditional Fit come standard.
In order to retain comfort, Simms incorporated many design features focused on keeping the wearer cool. The back yoke of the shirt utilizes mesh vents that allow hot air and moisture expelled from the body to leave the interior of the shirt. The shirt's overall light weight is also another feature appreciated by many anglers. Redesigned dual chest pockets serve as an excellent storage solution for maps, licenses or money while out fishing - the design of these chest pockets is very streamlined with closures hidden away.
We offer the Simms Ebbtide LS Shirt in four sizes: Medium - XXL in a single mist color pictured above.
Simms Ebbtide Sun Protection
As fishermen, we spend countless outdoors exposed to the sun's UV rays both directly from above and those reflected off the water's surface. Put in such a vulnerable state, it's of the utmost importance to take proper precautions to protect oneself from any harmful effects that could come as a result. With a UPF 50 sun protection rating, the highest achievable, this shirt provides the proper coverage for a full day of fishing and according to the American Cancer Society, UPF clothing is the single most effective preventative measure one can take against skin cancer. The shirt's modern fit affords free range of motion and won't catch on line or rigging while making casts.

UPF50 Rating: 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.
