Here at TheWinDuck we are great fans of Mozo, the Finnish accessories maker, which became especially popular amongst Windows Phone fans thanks to its stylish and diverse cover offerings for the Lumia x50 series. Both Valentin and I have previously written about our experience with the Black Wood Back Cover for the Lumia 650 and the Zebrawood Back Cover for the 950 XL respectively. As the Lumia product line slowly but steadily began to reach its end of life, Mozo started to explore new market opportunities and – among others – announced products designed for Surface Pro devices. Today, I’ve got the opportunity to unbox and check out one of those products: The Black Golf Surface Pro 3&4 Folio.
From Mozo’s store description:

Unboxing and First Impressions
Available in brown and black, the Mozo Golf Surface Pro 3 & 4 Folio is a very premium-feeling and beautifully designed folio which – thanks to the PU (a type of plastic) material – feels both comfortable and smooth in the hand. While the back of the Surface Pro itself might feel more premium, the folio is both softer and warmer to the touch which might be an advantage during colder periods.
As you’d expect the folio doesn’t prevent users from using the ports and buttons on the device: Even when closed, the protective folio doesn’t block access to those vital parts of the Surface Pro 3 and 4.
Users won’t have to sacrifice in terms of functionality either as the kickstand can still be put into every possible angle. While changing kickstand positions might be a bit more tedious, it’s still great to see that Mozo has done everything possible to assure that users still can enjoy the full functionality of their device while protecting it from damages and dirt.
So far, it seems like the Black Golf Folio is a very elegant and professional way of protecting your Pro 3 and Pro 4 and I’m very much looking forward to spending more time with it to see whether the positive initial impressions hold true in everyday life.
So stay tuned to TheWinDuck for more coverage on the Black Golf Surface Pro 3/4 Folio.
Thanks to Mozo for providing us with the review unit!
