When it came to wetsuits and wetsuit accessories, we wanted something warmer, more flexible, better fitting and tough enough to withstand extended use. Looking to what divers, sailors and fishermen had been using all these years to stay warm, in and on the ocean, we tried wool. For comfort and performance, we blend merino wool with polyester, and it’s this merino/polyester blend lining that gives our wetsuits their added warmth without added rubber. We make wetsuits in four weights for all water temperatures – R1® (warm), R2® (cool), R3® (cold), and R4® (frigid) – and in several cuts for men and women. Patagonia wetsuits are decidedly warmer than standard nylon-lined suits, but they also wear longer, dry faster and are made from post-consumer recycled polyester, merino wool softened without chlorine, and no PVC.

I picked these gloves up for kiteboarding as my other gloves didn't seem to do the trick for keeping my hands warm in colder conditions. I have been wearing 3mm gloves but the problem was my fingertips would start hurting probably due to circulation. I have tried these mitts twice now in sub 40 temps. first time using them kiteboarding it was 37 degrees and I actually had sweaty palms. used them again but when it was 32 degrees. how cold is that for kiting? so cold my gloves would momentarily freeze onto the control bar. I say kiting in those conditions aren't recommended but these gloves will keep your hands warm through the experience.
