Source the trailhead, hike hard, break sweat, build camp, erect fire, big stretch, mixed drink, soak in DEET, then throw on a headlamp and storm the lake's perimeter. Simms’ Guide Short is primed to work as hard as you do, with a water-resistant finish and improved fabric that dries quickly, wicks moisture, and shields your skin from harmful UV—with UPF50 sun protection.

FABRIC TECH:100% Nylon
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.
