7mm Patagonia R5 YULEX Mittens
Made with Patagonia's neoprene-free material, Yulex, these 7mm Patagonia R5 YULEX Mittens are the ultimate in warmth and comfort. These mitts feature a recycled microgrid polyester lining for additional warmth as well as sealed and taped seams (taped in high stress areas) for serious durability. Articulated panels create a comfortable fit and the silicone 3-D print on the palm maximizes grip.
Yulex is a line of neoprene-free wetsuits crafted from natural rubber and hypoallergenic materials. These sustainably made and fair-trade wetsuits are warm, flexible and durable. The renewable Yulex material comes from hevea trees and is a great replacement to conventional and skin-irritating neoprene. If you experience dermatological reactions to neoprene, a Yulex wetsuit is definitely worth checking out. Learn more about Yulex from our neoprene allergies and hypoallergenic wetsuits blog post.
Patagonia does wetsuits differently. They stand behind every suit with a lifetime warranty (does not cover wear and tear, of course.)
