During winter months, we need to keep our fingers warm, but also want to be able to use our phones. Most companies solve this problem for us with light knit gloves that have a finger and thumb designated for touch capacity. Mujjo is different. Their Touchscreen Gloves are thick, double-layered in fact, and warm, and most importantly, all-over touch-capacitive. From fingertip to wrist, you can access your screen with Mujjo's Touchscreen Gloves.

Mujjo Touchscreen Gloves: The features
This is Mujjo's second rendition of the Touchscreen Gloves, the first being thinner, and a single layer. This updated version has a new design, better protection from cold and wind, and two layers of protection.
The most important feature is still the same; the entire glove is interwoven with touch capacitive thread, so every inch of material works with your touchscreen.
The Touchscreen Gloves come in three sizes, small, medium, and large, and they form fit to your hand so you don't have to worry about stretching them out.
Mujjo Touchscreen Gloves: What I like
Obviously, the best feature of the gloves is the fact that they are all-over touch-capacitive. Whether I'm swiping with my finger, my thumb, my palm, or my knuckles, it'll work on my screen. The interwoven capacitive material is across the entire glove, including the grip pattern on the palm.
Speaking of grip pattern, The silicon pattern across the palm and fingers of Mujjo's Touchscreen Gloves gives you that extra bit of grip that you don't normally have with a pair of gloves. The silicone is "sticky" so it improves your grip, but it does not collect whatever fluff and dirt you may brush against.
Most touchscreen gloves are made from a fairly thin knit, which is absolutely not friendly for really cold weather. Mujjo's Touchscreen Gloves are double-lined with 3M's Thinsulation, which is a fleece inner layer. The stretchy outer knit is thick and tight, so you have flexibility but warmth.
I have not yet used these gloves in the snow, but I've used them in very windy conditions in about 47 degrees Fahrenheit and my hands stayed perfectly warm.
Mujjo Touchscreen Gloves: What I don't like
The way the gloves are stitched together, there's one single spot on the thumbs that has a drop in touch capacitive support. It's where the seams meet. The material is so thick in this one spot that swiping doesn't work well, or at all sometimes.
On any other pair of gloves, having a seam at the thumb wouldn't matter at all, but because I use my thumb to swipe across my screen a lot, this little thing is an annoyance.
I have learned to readjust the glove so that the seam is off to the side of my thumb instead of right at the spot where I swipe.
This is the only flaw in an otherwise perfect pair of touchscreen gloves.
Mujjo Touchscreen Gloves
The bottom line here is that if you wear gloves in the winter, and you own a smartphone, you really should get a pair of Mujjo's Touchscreen Gloves. They're extra warm and double thick with a fleece lining. They have a silicone grip line pattern across the palm and fingers to help keep you from dropping your phone. And, they are completely touch-capacitive from the tips of the fingers to the wrist cuff.
