Style + Tech = Mujjo Touchscreen Gloves

presented-by-fiat-manual-280x70Behold the first-ever content series between Digital Trends and The Manual. The Bromance has begun. Since there are a plethora of brands out there melding style and technology, we thought we would take this opportunity to profile one item per week for the month of October, breaking them down and offering each of our unique takes on their tech and style components.

For the whole series, click here; to learn why you’re about to get down with Ethiopian lambs, read on…

It’s nearing that time of year when the gloves come out and we all look like fumbling idiots for half the year. We drop coffee, we can’t retie our boots and we sure as hell can’t use a smart phone. Even with Siri up in the mix, calls, texts and emails require a full fledge ‘pull over and gloves off’ to get even the simplest memo off. And no, we don’t live in a cave. We are well aware of the gloves out there that can be used with smart phones, but aren’t they pretty ‘etsy’ looking? Mujjo is delivering serious man gloves that are both stylish and tech savvy.

These gloves are stars in our book. First off, we didn’t know lambs in Ethiopia made for such damn luxurious leather, and we definitely didn’t know they had awesome isolation properties. Because of the 100% wool lining, they keep our man mitts nice and cozy, as well.

The design of the glove is pretty on point, too. It’s simple, black and matte. Nobody is trying too hard here, which is refreshing. We appreciate the lack of an elastic band around the wrists; my wrist didn’t eat a McGriddle this morning, thank you. Instead Mujjo offers a slick leather strap and two studs to choose from, depending on the size of your wrist (they come in four hand sizes, as well). Finally, the gloves are treated, making them wind and waterproof as well as soil resistant and they even include anti-microbial properties.

You had us at anti-microbial properties.

We’ll cop to it – we have a germaphobe streak, and we defy anyone who regularly rides the NYC subway not to develop one as well. So we actually welcome the cold weather, because it allows us to handle the wide germ-tastic world without fear. That is until, as our good friends at The Manual point out, it’s time to operate our phones.

Turns out, Ethiopian lambs aren’t just luxurious; they bathe in nanotechnology! How else does Muiji manage to suffuse their gloves with the ability to close the circuit that makes capacitive touch screens work? And we’re not talking about just the tip of the index finger, either. These things work no matter what finger you’re using, and no matter the angle. You could probably type with your knuckles, if your knuckles were limber enough.

We couldn’t agree more that our other options for warm-fingered phone handling leave us cold; these things make us feel like the future of tech isn’t in our hands – it’s on them.
