    Fantastic!

    The mark of good product design is 'simple, yet elegant.' The kurvd universal lens cap more than hits that target. Within seconds I have thousands of dollars of glass both protected and ready to use. We'll done!

    Replaced ALL my lens caps!

    I already had a couple of these and decided to replace ALL of my caps with them. So easy to cram in a pocket or back in the bag. The new versions are not as thick and thus I had one get a tear in it after only being on a lease for less than a week and and taken on and off less than 5 times. Not sure where it happened. I still love the product though!

    Truly a "One size fits all" solution.

    I travel for weeks at a time, mostly to areas with no camera store offerings, and saving space on the "spares" is a huge benefit. My lenses cover from 48mm to 105mm, and these ULC's are a perfect answer. What a great idea!

    So useful

    these have been great for me, I am never worried about keeping my lenses safe now and it's so handy having KURVD lens caps that fit all my different lenses, gives me so much piece of mind knowing they are well protected!

    This makes protection all new. They work great.

  • Will it work with lens hoods?

    Oh you bet your bottom it does! Although from an initial glance it might not seem to work, the Universal Lens Cap does function with a lens hoods! If the lens hood is first mounted either in normal fashion or in reverse, the ULC can be stretched over it, covering it no problem! In fact, the ULC is more versatile than you might think!

     

    Will it work with my lens?

    99.99% chance it does! The Universal Lens Cap has a stretch range of 60mm to 150mm! In a nutshell, every lens has a diameter that is in between that range of 60mm and 150mm minus a few extremes on both ends. And if you're still apprehensive about it, click on the link below to view the comprehensive list of lenses that the ULC will cover! Chances are, your lens is on that list! :)

    ULC Compatibility w/ Lenses

     

    Is there a lip that keeps the cap off the glass?

    The ULC does not come into contact with the front glass unless intentionally pressed to touch the glass or is taking a blow from dropping the lens. Dirt, by default, does not come with your packaged ULC. If dirt, fine sand or debris enters in the inside of the ULC, there is no need to worry. We’ve already infused a special coating into the material of the ULC, making it so any collected finely grained silent killers (dirt, sand, debris, etc.) can be washed off and dried, looking brand new, within seconds.

     

    What if there is dirt on the inside (of the ULC) and that bit hugs the front of the glass very tightly?

    The ULC does not come into contact with the front glass unless intentionally pressed to touch the glass or is taking a blow from dropping the lens. Dirt, by default, does not come with your packaged ULC. If dirt, fine sand or debris enters in the inside of the ULC, there is no need to worry. We’ve already infused a special coating into the material of the ULC, making it so any collected finely grained silent killers (dirt, sand, debris, etc.) can be washed off and dried, looking brand new, within seconds.

     

    Have you tried using this lens cap with any lenses that have a twist-on lens hood? E.g. with the lens hood on and reversed (my usual transit arrangement)?

    I’d be worried that this would catch on the lip of the hood and make it a pain to remove. Yes, we have! We have stretched the ULC over Lens Hoods both ways and it works just fine! Not a pain to remove and it doesn’t catch the lip of the hood!

     

    When the ULC is mounted on the lens (stretched onto the lens), what prevents it from touching the glass if the middle of the ULC is pushed into the lens?

    It would be a problem with the Nikon 14-24, because of the large curvature of this lens. With the Nikon 14-24, what prevents the ULC from touching the glass is the uniquely shaped fixated lens hood. Nothing prevents the ULC from touching the front glass except for the lens’ filter ring or fixated lens hoods. We purposefully included a protruding circle in the middle of the ULC, acting as a shock-absorbent barrier incase the lens falls glass first onto concrete. In no way do we state that the ULC is SHOCK-PROOF or DROP-PROOF but it is SHOCK-ABSORBENT in the sense that does absorb shock and increase the chances of lenses working after having been dropped. Our intention was to create a ‘cushion’ for the shape and glass of any lens and it still works just fine for a large curvature shaped lens like the Nikon 14-24!

     

    I’m a stickler for Traditional Lens Caps, so what if I don’t lose my TLC? What benefit does the ULC provide?

    Great question! The ULC:

    1. Provides greater aesthetic-, glass- and internal-protection to lenses.
    2. Can stretch OVER the TLC creating a SUPER LENS CAP.
    3. Ensures the TLC never falls off.

    I feel like the ULC will take up more room in a photography bag or camera case. Is this true?

    Nope! In fact, photographers have used the ULC as ways to better insulate their lenses, substitute the velcro walls for ULCs, and layer on multiple ULCs creating bumpers from other camera gear! If anything, it creates more room in your bag while increasing padding and protection for your gear.
