Peak Design: Bino Kit and Cover

At Peak Design we’ve always got a few stews in the cooker. Towards the end of our most recent Kickstarter campaign we announced 3 new products that will ship in the Spring/Summer 2015 timeframe, hopefully sooner: CaptureBINO, Bino Kit and Shell. Sign up here to get updates on the development and availability of our newest gear.



For those familiar with our Capture Camera Clip, Bino Kit works exactly the same. For those wondering what the heck a Capture Camera Clip is, read on.

CaptureBINO consists of two parts: an aluminum quick-release clip that clamps onto your backpack/belt, and an aluminum adapter that screws into your binoculars. The adapter slides and locks into the clip. It can be released by pressing a little red button on the clip and sliding your binos out in the reverse direction of how you slid them in. The system is extremely secure – capable of holding over 200 lbs (90 kg) – far more secure than a strap. Unlinke other binocular pouches and holsters out there, CaptureBINO keeps your binos very quickly accessible and does not add a bunch of unnecessary bulk to your gear.


Any set of binos with a 1/4″-20 tripod mount. Some cheaper binoculars don’t have this mount, but most prosumer and professional rigs do.






Shell will be created in two sizes, small and large.

The small version is intended to cover small to medium sized SLRs and mirrorless cameras (squeezing a Canon 5D/Nikon D600), and a standard zoom (55-200mm) lens when retracted.

The large version is intended to cover medium to large SLRs (loose on a Canon 5D/Nikon D600 to Canon 1D Nikon D4), and a lens up to a 70-200 F2.8 lens (without hood).

The intent of Shell is protection from water and dust, not to create a waterproof, hermetic seal for your rig. It will allow you to carry and operate your camera in rainy and dusty environments. It will not be submersible – it’ll be more like a rain jacket.

Peak Design: What is Slide?

What Makes Slide So Great?

Slide is a camera strap, but one that’s different from every other camera strap out there. Slide is more than just a neck strap, sling strap or shoulder strap. Slide is a new kind of camera strap that incorporates everything we love about existing straps, as well as feedback from thousands of photographers worldwide. In a nutshell, we think Slide is the most thoughtfully designed camera strap ever created.

  • Wearable as a sling strap, shoulder strap or neck strap.
  • Quick connecting with one hand, using our patent-pending Anchor Link™ connection system.
  • Smooth on one side and grippy on the other, and instantly reversible depending on your preference.
  • Comfortable even with the heaviest of pro cameras.
  • Made of tubular seatbelt-style webbing with padding on the inside for less bulk and a clean, classic look.
  • Compatible with ARCA-type tripod heads, so you can place your camera in the tripod without unscrewing anything.
  • Quickly customizable and adjustable. It can attach to multiple places on your camera and quickly cinch to fit your body type or activity.
  • More than strong enough to hold any pro camera/lens/accessory combo


Peak Design: What is Clutch?


Why Does Clutch Take the Cake?

Clutch™ is the only quick-connecting, quick-adjusting camera hand strap ever made. Clutch gives you security when you need it, but also allows instant access to your camera’s controls. With materials and hardware inspired by high end climbing gear, Clutch’s simple, rugged design can only be described as “dead sexy.”

  • Quick connecting with one hand, so you can add or remove it as needed.
  • Quick adjusting, so you can tighten it when you need extra security and loosen it when you need to access your camera’s controls.
  • Low profile and unobtrusive compared to other camera hand straps on the market.
  • Made from premium materials and custom hardware inspired by high-end climbing gear.
  • Designed to work with or without battery grips, and strong enough to hold any pro camera/lens/accessory combo.
