Simms Solarflex Guide Gloves

by Simms
Color: Sterling

For saltwater we often need a glove with palm protection for handling fish and pulling anchor ropes. These gloves are strong and give you all the protection you could ever need.


Crank on the oars, pole into a head-on wind toward tails at 11, and give your hands hope against harmful UV rays with Simms' guide-approved gloves. SolarFlex® Guide Gloves feature plush UPF 50 stretch fabric on the back of the hand, full-coverage cuffs, and water-resistant goat leather palms. Added material bolsters protection in the index and middle fingers, while pairing snaps ensure your gloves stay connected when not in use.

FABRIC TECH:SolarFlex® stretch fabric –;92% polyester/8% spandex

At Simms, sun protection is a critical component of our sportswear offering.  Through a combination of fabric construction, design and finish, we offer a wide range of clothing that features a minimum UPF of 30 (very good) up to UPF of 50 (excellent).  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.

The old design was far better.

I find this new design to be a huge step backwards, especially for tropical use. They are going to be way too hot.
