Simms' Guide Flannel LS Shirt is a favorite of the people who spend the most time on the water: professional fishing guides. Made of warm, double-layered flannel, the men's shirt wicks moisture and provides UPF 50 sun protection. Angler-friendly details include gear-ready pockets and an easy-access tool stash near the lower hem.
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.
