Lightweight, breathable sun protection for your face and neck, so you can spend more time on the water.
Some days, when the fish are biting, so are the bugs. On these blazing hot, buggy days, the Bugstopper® SunGaiter™™ is sweet relief. Powered by Insect Shield® UPF 50 Solarflex® stretch fabric, this lightweight, breathable gaiter protects your face from the bites and sunburn. A longer cape improves skin coverage at the neckline and a taller fit allows it to fit up and over a cap.
The blue skies and sandy shores of the tropics beckon. Spending a full day under the sun requires stepping up your sun coverage. The Simms SunGaiter™™ helps you spend more time on the water with less sun exposure. Made from lightweight, quick-drying stretch fabric, it features laser-cut breathing holes, so you don't feel like you are breathing through a balaclava. The Solarflex® fabric offers UPF 50 protection and covers from the top of your nose down to your shirt collar with enough height in the back to fit over or under your favorite fishing hat.

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.
