Through a combination of fabric construction, design and finish, Simms offers a wide range of clothing that features a minimum of 30 UPF (very good) up to 50 UPF (excellent). UPF is the Ultraviolet Protection Factor indicating the quantity of the sun's UV radiation absorbed. A rating of 50 allows only 1/50th of the sun's UV rays to pass through the fabric, thereby reducing your skin's UV radiation exposure significantly. All of Simms' UPF finishes last the life of the garment, an industry standard of 30 washings.
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 Simm's 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.
