A quick-drying hoodie with sun protection for fishing during the dog days.

When the sweltering sun threatens to end a long afternoon of tossing carefree casts, cover yourself with Simms' Solarflex® Hoodie. The quick-drying comfort and UPF 50 sun protection of lightweight COR3™™ fabric lets you keep chasing that elusive two-footer through the dog days of summer. The durable and flexible sleeve construction supports a range of movement, letting you cast from any angle. The hoodie features a flat-seam finish that creates a plush, next-to-skin feel.

Features

  • Quick‐drying, wicking, anti‐odor & UPF 50
  • Flat‐seam construction
  • Raglan‐sleeve design for unrestricted movement
  • Hood designed to wear over cap

Tech

100% polyester.

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 of our 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.

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.

Waders

The #1 tip to prolonging the life of a wader is drying your waders. It is important to dry your waders out after each use. We recommend drying the inside first (if damp) and then the outside. When drying the outside you can pull your gravel guards up until the feet are dry and then flip them down to dry the rest of the wader

  • Washing - Use a front load machine or hand wash. Use cold water and normal detergent that does not contain bleach. Once you have washed the waders make sure you dry them properly start by drying the inside first. Never put your waders in the dryer, the heat will adversely affect the seam tape on your waders and will void your warranty.
  • Fit - We offer more sizes than anyone, a good fit goes a long way to extending the life of your wader. Make it clear that people should use their exact measurements as we have already provided extra room for layering and movement.
  • General Care - Do not store inside your car for long periods of time excess heat will damage your waders.
  • Use A Mat - Always put your waders on using a protective mat to shield the neoprene feet from rocks.
  • Proper Layering - Do not wear jeans under your waders. Jeans are highly abrasive wearing on your waders from the inside out. More importantly jeans and sweatpants do not transfer moisture away from the body. Use proper layering (to view our layering collection, go here). Using layers such as these will help wick moisture away from your body and assist in the waders ability to breathe.
  • Stains - most stain removers will work fine on our waders. As long as the stain remover does not contain bleach you should be okay.

Footwear

For maximum thoroughness, remove laces prior to cleaning. Use specialized boot cleaner, saddle soap or maybe a mild dishwashing soap with luke-warm water.

  • Do not use bar soap or detergents.
  • Do not place wet boots close to a heat source (fireplace, campfire, wood stove, radiator, heater, sunny windowsill) as this can weaken adhesives and cause materials to become brittle or shrink.
  • Dry using natural methods (air dry) and try to keep them out of the sun for long periods of time.

Boots dry faster when positioned upside-down. If desired, stuff a sheet or two of newspaper into each boot to absorb moisture. Change the paper each hour. If you see any mold on your boots, brush in a mixture of 80% water and 20% vinegar.Over time the use of leather conditioners may provide increased water repellency and can prevent cracking and drying of the leather.Store boots in a place where temperatures are stable and normal. Do not store boots in attics, garages, car trunks or any unventilated spaces.Never put boot in washing machine.
