In the race for first crack at prime water, Simms' Rivershed® is the hoodie you grab on your way out the door for its dependable warmth and comfort. Made of no-pill fleece with an impressive warmth-to-weight ratio and UPF 50 sun protection, the men's full-zip hoodie features hand-warmer pockets to thaw chilled fingers.
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.
