If you are a photography enthusiast, you probably have a love-hate relationship with your lens caps or covers. They are all that stand between your precious and expensive lenses and deadly scratches. However, they are such a pain to keep track of because of all the different sizes. You always have to remember where you store the cap when you are using the lens so that you don’t lose it. One simple solution is to replace all your lens caps with Kuvrd Universal Lens Cap 2.0.
The Kuvrd Universal Lens Cap 2.0 is a flexible, rubbery cover that stretches over the lens. Because the cover stretches over the sides of the lens as well, it actually provides more protection than a standard lens cap. What’s more, you can place a cover over both ends of the lens giving it even more protection.
The Kuvrd Universal Lens Cap 2.0 holds on really tight to the lens and it won’t come off no matter how you shake it. On the other hand, you can remove it in a flash by just grabbing the edge and peel it right off. You don’t have to worry about missing a shot because it took too long to remove the cap.
Because the Kuvrd cap is stretchable, you can stretch it over the lens even with a filter or a lens hood on. If you are paranoid, you can stretch it over a lens with its cap in place. Or you can use it to protect your other equipment like flashes. The Kuvrd cap is both waterproof and dustproof, providing your lens maximum protection against the elements.
You may be wondering about the 2.0 suffix and what it means. The Kuvrd Universal Lens Cap 2.0 is an update to the original. There are a few improvements made over the original. Firstly, there are now 2 sizes available, the Micro that fits 54 – 76mm lenses and the bigger Magnum that fits 72 – 122mm lenses.
The material itself has been improved and is now 25% more stretchable than the original. The other improvement is that there is a white cross on the center of the cap. You can use the cross to color code your lenses to make them easier to identify with just a quick glance.
The Kuvrd Universal Lens Cap 2.0 is by all means not cheap compared to a standard lens cap. However, you only need the few that are required to protect the lenses that you bring along with you. Since they are universal, you don’t need new ones when you swap your lenses or get new ones.
