There’s been a LOT of winter weather happening around the globe as of late, particularly on the East Coast here in the U.S., and it can be pretty uncomfortable using your smartphone with gloves on. If you have cheap touchscreen gloves, sometimes they don’t work; if you don’t have anything for touchscreens, you have to take your glove/gloves off to use your device. That’s not much fun for anyone, which is why we’re big fans of Mujjo’s Leather Crochet Touchscreen Gloves.

I personally enjoy finding stylish solutions to tech problems, and these gloves were a great choice for getting out and about and protecting your hands from the elements. First, the look of the gloves are sleek and elegant: the black matte leather is incredibly soft, and the crochet on the top half of the gloves give a two-tone look that makes them easy to pair with any outfit, from a business look to hanging out with friends attire.

Using the gloves, I found the touchscreen capabilities to be very good; I’d say my touchscreen success rate was around 80 to 90 percent with these gloves over a few days use. Sometimes I’d hit the wrong key when typing, but generally, they’re pretty proficient, and it was nice to not have to pull off a glove when I needed to check a message or answer a call.

Overall, the gloves proved to be a welcome companion on chilly mornings, or during cool evening walks, and I can definitely see a lot of different kinds of men and women using a pair of gloves like these. They’re a little pricey, clocking in around $100 for a pair, but for anyone who lives in a consistently colder climate, it’s a good investment. If you’re on a tight budget, Mujjo also offers other non-leather touchscreen gloves for about $30 (we didn’t get to test those, though), and if you’re looking for a full leather pair, they have those, too.

What kind of gloves are you using to get through the winter? Let us know in the comments.
