Best all around shiets

Light weight and Cool in the summer. But a great base layer for winter time. I know I just bought it but looking forward to wearing it along with the other great Simms product

Not a good fit for me

I put down "it runs large" but truthfully this is the only Simms product I have ever bought that I don't like. I got several Simms hoodies I love. It just doesn't fit. Wish I had a size smaller, but the built in gaiter concept that caught my attention and made me pay more for a fishing shirt than I ever have, just seems awkward. A button or velcro below it on the shirt itself to secure up the gap at the neck mine has would be a nice addition

Great product

I really like this product and stoked to purchase it at a great price. I’m 5’9” 175 lean build. The medium size is a perfect fit for me. I took a chance because this was the only size available and I’m glad I did. I read reviews that state these run large in size so the medium is the one for me. The camo version is great for this smaller streams and creeks

Shirt lives up to its name, it is actually cool to the touch. Wore the shirt for the first time with temperatures in the seventies and it was almost too cold.

My New Favorite Fishing Shirt

This shirt is perfect for sunny south Florida days - keeps the sun off of you and the cooling effect is noticeable without being too much

The perfect hoody

All I can say is that I bought 4 of these shirts. Two that use and two that I store is case they discountinue this shirt. It has happened too many times. The first hoodies that keeps me cool and allow me to wear a mask and hoody on a boat going full speed without getting twisted or blown off. I could do without the pocket in the back (that can get scratchy) but other than that, it's perfect.

Best Hoodie For Flats That I've Ever Worn

I'm a hoodie geek and IMO this is the best hoodie for salt water flats on the market. Fabric is light and protects from sun. Built in buff works well as buff alone or buff+hood. The hood-to-buff snaps bring new levels of control and custom fit. Back pocket is fantastic. Packs small. Love Simms to make this in a few blue camo variants. I'm usually a L, but the Medium is perfect for my fit and ego :). I own two of these.

Expensive but worth it

I’ve had several sun shorts and this is the best hands down. Not cheap but quality is first class and I can actually tell a difference in how this one is both more effective and not as hot to wear in warm weather. Worth the $$$
