Simms Guide LS Shirt

The Simms Guide LS Shirt is a long sleeve sun protection shirt designed to provide the wearer protection from the damaging effects of exposure to UV Rays. Simms engineered the Guide Shirt with latest in performance fabric technology and construction techniques to provide anglers will the most functional long sleeve sun shirt to date. Using a durable, quick-dry UPF50 nylon fabric, the Simms LS Guide Shirt offers wearers a lightweight feel that enables wet clothing to rapidly dry to maintain comfort. Furthermore, this fabric serves to pull moisture away from the skin to reduce chaffing and discomfort and keep the wearer cool on those hot summer days.

From Simms:
Spring in the Rockies means baetis littered back eddies, the off-key chorus of awakening cicadas, and overtime for guides chasing hatches of playoff proportions. For fishing seasons without sleep, Simms’ Guide LS shirt is a feature-rich river ally—always at the ready. Pro-inspired architecture stems from easy-wearing, quick-drying nylon fabric kitted with UPF50 sun protection. When the heat flares, stay fresh thanks to a vented mesh-lined back panel that amplifies airflow. Roll up sleeves, lock them in place with button retainers, and cast all day in comfort. And keep it simple, smart, and in-focus with fly box compatible chest pockets and a sunglasses cleaning chamois at the shirt’s hem.

As mentioned, the Simms Guide LS Shirt is just awesome for sun protection securing the highest rating possible for garments: UPF50. However, no matter how well the shirt protects, if it's not worn, it cannot do it's job. That's why Simms improved upon the air flow for user comfort - they achieved this enhancement using vented back panel lined with mesh. Free airflow now pushes warm air away from the body as cooler air enters. What's more, the nylon fabric is very lightweight so the shirt doesn't weigh down on the wearer at all. An updated style is an additional benefit that some may appreciate as it allows wearers to maintain a clean look should they wish to wear the shirt off the water. Great option for any outdoors activities: fishing, hiking, camping or gardening among many others.

We offer the Simms Guide Long Sleeve Shirt in four sizes: Medium - 2XL and two color options: Indigo Blue and Olive.

Simms Technologies in Guide Shirt

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.
