UPF50+ Sun Mask
The Simms SunHood is a UPF 50 rated face mask that protects the wearer from damage caused by direct contact with the sun's harmful UV rays. Increase your armor and fight damaging sun exposure with the full coverage of Simms’ hardworking SunHood. Features include UPF50 Solarflex stretch fabric that fits over the crown of a hat, keeping lids fixed during blustery conditions. Or wear it around the neck as a comfortable, convertible gaiter. The SunHood wears like a ski mask, but is much lighter and more breathable. Many anglers prefer the full hood design as it makes it easier to keep it in place and fits nicely under a ball cap. Laser cut breathing holes provide seamless transition of breath out of the garment ensuring your sunglasses will not fog up. Pair the Simms SunHood with any of their UPF50 long sleeve shirts and a standard ballcap and you'll stay safe while out on the water.
The Simms SunHood is one size fits most. Available in three colors: Flow Camo, Grey and Simms Camo.

Simms Technology in SunHood
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.
