Ever lost a lens cap? Not convinced how effective those traditional pinch-lock lens caps are at protecting your lens? Well, the guys at Kuvrd think they have a solution, in the form of the one-size-fits-all Kuvrd Universal Lens Cap.
The silicone lens cap is designed to securely fit onto any DSLR lens – its malleable material stretches from 60mm to 150mm. You simply wrap the lens cap around the front (or rear) of your lens. Kuvrd promises the lens cap will not fall off and that it provides extra protection for your lens.
With a lens ‘zip-locked’ securely inside the Universal Lens Cap, it is protected from the elements. The silicone design is waterproof, humidity-proof, dirt-proof and provides shock absorbency that a traditional lens cap cannot give. It should take a few bumps and knocks, no worries.
The two-time patented silicone Universal Lens Cap has a malleable shape so it can be packed away neatly or double up with a second cap over the front and rear of a small/ mid-size lens for total covering.
This all sounds really good. We’re looking forward to getting our hands on the Kuvrd Universal Lens Cap, to see if it’s as promising as it looks on the Kickstarter campaign.

The Kuvrd Universal lens cap has reached its crowdfunding target and estimated shipping is some time in March 2018.
If you back the campaign before its completion on 15th January 2018, a single unit will set you back $30.
As a bonus, if you share on social media, Kuvrd will throw in another Universal Lens Cap for free. Essentially then, whether you buy 1 or 10, you’re looking at around $15 per unit.
