UPF50+ Sun Mask
The Simms SunGaiter is a UPF 50 rated face mask that protects the wearer from damage caused by direct contact with the sun's harmful UV rays. Simms’ Sun Gaiter keeps your skin safe longer thanks to Solarflex UPF50 stretch fabric, a longer cape for enhanced neckline coverage, and enough height to fit over the back of your fishing cap. The SunGaiter is designed to make adding this accessory much easier and more comfortable than prior offerings. Laser cut breathing holes provide seamless transition of breath out of the garment ensuring your sunglasses will not fog up. The longer cut of this sun mask provides additional coverage of that difficult neckline area that is so often overlooked. Pair the Simms SunGaiter with any of their UPF50 long sleeve shirts and a standard ballcap and you'll stay safe while out on the water.
The Simms SunGaiter is one size fits most. We offer the SunGaiter in six colors: Current, Flow Camo, Grey, Simms Camo, Slate Blue and Water Splash Capri.
- Quick-dry, breathable stretch fabric with laser cut breathing holes
- Longer cape for better sun coverage at neckline
- Tall enough to fit over back of fishing cap
- FABRIC TECH: Solarflex™ UPF50 stretch fabric
Simms Technology in SunGaiter
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.
