Now made from lighter and stretchier 3mm 85% natural rubber/15% synthetic rubber, Patagonia's durable R3® Yulex® Split Toe Booties keep your feet warm and comfortable in cold water while offering excellent dexterity and control.
With a fast-drying 95% polyester (51% recycled)/5% spandex inverted microgrid thermal lining and an 88% recycled polyester/12% spandex exterior fabric, they have an internal split toe and heel lock to improve performance, a flexible Supratex back for increased comfort and durability, and a micro gasket at the ankle cuff to help prevent water entry.
Diamond-grip, nonmarking soles provide reliable traction, and a Y-strap closure holds the bootie snug to your foot for a snug fit; the hook-and-loop patch is stretchy for increased flex as the foot and ankle move. Pull rings at the heel make the booties easy to get on and off, and are triple bartacked for strength. 100% external seam sealing eliminates leaks; all seams are triple glued and internally taped.
The exterior fabric and interior lining are solution-dyed—using 86% less water than conventional dyeing—and laminated with water-based AquaA™ glue that’s free from harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The natural rubber content is derived from sources that are Forest Stewardship Council® certified by the Rainforest Alliance. Made in a Fair Trade Certified™ facility.
Suggested water temperatures: 48–55° F/9–13° C.
