Simms Bugstopper SunSleeve - Ash
Mother Nature has her ways of testing our priorities. Searing sun and biting bugs will challenge the resolve of the even the most dedicated. That's why we combined our Insect Shield® and Solarflex® technologies in our Bugstopper® SunSleeve™. The ultralight sleeves keep two of Mother Nature's most tenacious hazards at bay, biting bugs and hot sun. The quick-drying, breathable sleeves are curved for a natural fit that stay where you want them, so you can keep your eyes on the water and your hands on the rod.

Insect Shield repellent apparel provides long-lasting, effective and convenient personal insect protection. 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. This is well beyond the lifecycle of most other products on the market which typically last only a number of washes.
Through a combination of fabric construction, design and finish, Solarflex offers UPF50 sun protection. UPF is a measure of how much of the sun's UV radiation is absorbed by the fabric. A UPF 50 rating means that only 1/50 of the sun's UV radiation will pass through the garment.
