Working your smartphone in cold weather used to mean you’d have to make some stylistic sacrifices, such as having to wear those ugly capacitive gloves that never quite work on your touchscreens – or, worse, those silly fingerless gloves that look right off the set of ‘Oliver!‘ or ‘Les Misérables.’
But a new line of gloves from the Dutch designer label Mujjo will let you stay connected without having to look like a Dickens-era pauper. The breakthrough in Mujjo’s new nanotechnology gives control to practically your entire hand (versus only a few fingers in most other capacitive gloves). Tap away using Mujjo’s matte-black glove, made of supple Ethiopian lambskin, and you can expect your device to respond as if you were working on a balmy June afternoon.
Lined with 100% wool and resistant to wind and water, the Mujjo gloves are surprisingly sleek. Adjustable wrist straps maintain the slim contours – and help retain body heat, which means you can now work on your phone or tablet in the coldest conditions and still look like the gentleman you undoubtedly are.
