It’s the season that just keeps on giving! As winter picks up, we’re stoked to announce a new collaboration between our friends over at Peak Design and Vallerret Photography Gloves. For a limited time, we’re offering a discounted bundle for the Peak Design Capture and any Vallerret Photography Glove. 

Peak Design and Vallerret Photography Gloves

If you’re not already familiar with Peak Design, you’re missing out. With the tag line "The leaders in Carry", Peak Design is an innovative camera bags and accessories company based out of San Francisco.

What is the Capture:

The Captureis the piece that started it all for Peak Design. The idea for capture was born in 2010 when founder Peter Dering embarked on a 4-month trip around the world where he quickly discovered the impracticability of travelling easy with a DSLR camera. He returned to San Francisco and spent 10 months designing a solution that would help photographers in their quest for easier travel which eventually became the Capture. He launched the product on Kickstarter and the rest is history.

The Capture is a metal clip that clamps onto any backpack strap, belt or bag. It comes with an Arca tripod-compatible plate that screws into the bottom of your camera. Your camera locks into the clip where it’s held securely until you’re ready to use it. When you’re ready to shoot, press the lockable quick-release button to remove the camera.

If you’ve ever been out hiking, biking or travelling, you know the pain of having to take off your backpack to get your camera or the risk of having your camera dangling from a strap around your neck. Often in these situations, you need your camera fast so you can capture the moment you’re seeing before it disappears, whether it’s a unique ray of light, a perfect moving composition or genuine human interaction. The Capture saves you time and makes shooting on-the-go super easy.

But can I trust it?

Yes. We have been using this device for years and we can personally attest that the Capture does indeed securely hold your camera in place. The clip holds well over 90kg (200lbs), to say it strong enough for the heaviest of pro cameras and lenses is an understatement. 

What if I don’t hike or travel much?

The Capture’s capabilities reach far beyond just hiking and travelling. It’s great for winter photography too when the ground is covered with snow and you need to go hands-free for a bit. Instead of taking off your backpack or trying to find a dry place to put your camera, you can quickly clip it to the strap liberating both of your hands.

Get the Deal

Here’s the deal. For 10 days only, we’re offering a discount on any bundle that includes the Peak Design Capture and any of our Vallerret Photography Gloves. This is a one-off opportunity that is only valid while supplies last so if you’ve been sitting on the idea of bulking out your photography kit with a Peak Design Capture and a pair of warm Photography Gloves, this is your chance.

Similar to the Capture, all of our gloves are designed with the sole purpose of making your life as a photographer easier and simpler. We have optimized our design to make it photographer friendly with the FlipTech Finger Caps held back by magnets, super sticky palm print for extra grip, warmth and high-quality materials. It’s no secret that we think winter is the most magical time of the year and with the right gear, there’s no reason every photographer can’t be out there enjoying it just as much. Our glove range will keep you warm from light winter to the Arctic and you can check out all of our gloves here
