We have previously backed on Peak Design’s Kickstarter project and were always satisfy with the quality of their product. So obviously, when they announce their new project, we have pledged and backed again. Here is their latest Kickstarter: Slide and Clutch: Versatile Camera Sling and Hand Strap

A camera sling strap and hand strap that are quick-connecting, quick-adjusting, comfortable, versatile and classically beautiful.

Here is the description from Peak Design:

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.

Slide is:
•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.

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.”

Clutch is:
•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.

Got a camera neck strap that you absolutely love? Anchor Links will make it even better. Anchor Links are quick connectors that can be placed on the ends of any standard camera neck strap, giving it super-fast, uber secure quick-connection capability.

Anchor Links are:
•Super strong. Each Vectran®-corded Anchor can hold over 200 lbs.
•Low-profile, lightweight and unobtrusive. Plus, the Delrin® Anchor disks will never scratch your camera body.
•Adaptable to any standard camera strap, from your brand new OEM strap to your Dad’s vintage leather strap he used in college. Works with straps up to 12mm wide, which is a nearly-universal pro camera strap standard.
•The same connection system used on all Peak Design straps.
