The temperature is dropping, the wind is howling, and snow is starting to fall – like it or not, winter is here. For those of us in places with actual seasons, that means winter jackets, hats, and gloves. As a life-long resident of the midwest, it’s something I’ve grown used to. I’m still not used to is the frustration of trying to use my iPhone without freezing my hands or feeling like an I have literal fat fingers. The All-new Mujjo Touchscreen Gloves are the ideal solution to staying warm without losing the ability to use your device when the weather gets gross.
Mujjo’s All-new Touchscreen Gloves ($47.43 from Mujjo’s web store) are premium gloves that provide excellent fit, comfort, and style. The gloves are constructed with a combination of 4-way stretch-knit fleece and “laminated” 3M™ Thinsulate™ to offer better warmth, wind protection, and a snug fit.
Unlike cheap cotton or “touch” nylon gloves, the Mujjo Touchscreen Gloves entire finger surface works on smartphone screens. This means you get more reliable, consistent touches when wearing the gloves and using your device. The palm and fingers of the gloves also offer a subtle ribbing to provide added grip. This is useful for wearing the gloves while doing various outdoor activities, proving grip where cheaper touch gloves would be rendered useless.
After wearing the gloves for a few weeks of Chicago winter, I’ve found that they are incredibly comfortable, fit great, and provide ample touch support. Whether I was wearing them while cycling, on a walk, or running errands, I was able to comfortably use my phone and maintain reliable grip on whatever I was holding.
My personal favorite use for the gloves was while cycling or running outdoors in the brisk winter air. The gloves offered enough warmth and wind protection to keep my fingers from feeling frozen. The grips on the gloves were perfect on bike handle bars, allowing for comfortable control and dexterity on the brakes and shifters.
The main drawback of the gloves, in my usage, was that they are dense and don’t offer any kind of connecting hook (like many thicker gloves). This means that they aren’t easily folded into a pocket, and they can’t be clipped to a zipper on a jacket. Testing them with three different jackets, they were a bit too big to close the pocket comfortably.
The solution I typically found was to put the gloves in a backpack when not in use, or leave them hanging out of my pocket with the hope that they didn’t disappear on me. Ultimately, this was mostly a non-issue, as I don’t frequently wear a coat or jacket without also wearing gloves in the winter.
Living in the midwest means dealing with the elements. When the weather turns cold, having comfortable gloves that provide warmth without being restrictive is important. Having tried (literally) dozens of different gloves, the Mujjo Touchscreen Gloves are the best balance of warmth, function, and comfort at a great price.
