For blazing sun and biting bugs this longbill lid packs UPF 50 protection and proven Insect Shield® tech. Simms' BugStopper® SunShield Hat delivers 360-degree protection thanks to an extended bill, removable SolarFlex® sun cape, and inherent Insect Shield® protection. Nylon Tactel® fabric with a Teflon® HT DWR finish bucks rain and stains, while the UPF 50 stretch fabric back protects your neck. Additional features include an inner-wicking, quick-dry mesh sweatband and convenient snaps for securing the cape to hat.
Insect Shield® repellent apparel provides long-lasting, effective and convenient personal insect protection to help battle insects some of which may carry diseases such as West Nile virus and Lyme disease. Insect Shield Repellent Apparel has been registered to repel mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers, and midges (no-see-ums). The active ingredient in Insect Shield is so tightly bonded to the fabric fibers that it retains effective repellency throughout the lifetime of the product.
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.
