A two-hour session in subzero wind can turn your hands into fumbling, half-frozen claws. The R5® Wool Lined Lobster Mitts offer our warmest hand protection for sessions in truly frigid water and air, making sure you can still turn your keys when you get back to the car. Made from durable 7mm wetsuit neoprene laminated to a merino wool jersey liner, the articulated panels conform to the hand for a snug and comfortable grip, and the split-hand construction allows for better dexterity than a conventional mitt design. The merino is chlorine-free, soft next to the skin and stays warm when wet, while the polyester jersey dries quickly and adds durability. Seams are externally sealed to eliminate leaks, and high-stress areas are secured with glue dots, 1cm bartacks and Melco® reinforcements.
