Allendale, NJ—Leica Camera and Peak Design collaborated to create the Peak Design for Leica Backpack Capsule. Stemming from a mutual admiration for design, aesthetic and craftsmanship, the Peak Design for Leica Backpack Capsule is a Peak Everyday backpack that features iconic Leica design elements.
“Thoughtful design with integrity is the crux of Leica’s iconic craftsmanship, which is why partnering with Peak Design to create this beautiful accessory made perfect sense for us,” said Roland Wolff, executive vice president, Leica Camera. “We’re eager for photographers to get their hands on this backpack so they can appreciate the seamless combination of stunning aesthetics and functionality it has to offer.”
With only 100 units available, the Peak Design for Leica Backpack Capsule comes in a black canvas—a first for Peak Design—with red stitching as a nod to the camera brand’s signature colors. It also sports the red Leica dot on the shoulder strap and bottom front corner. Moreover, Peak’s Everyday backpack is designed to provide accessibility, expandability and organization.
“Working with Leica feels surreal; their customers are as design-conscious as any on the planet. So when the opportunity arose to work together, not only did we jump, we took it as validation that we’re doing something right,” said Peter Dering, founder of Peak Design, maker of pro-grade camera accessories.
Leica Backpack Capsule Key Features
Staying true to its original functional elements, the backpack features quick access to all internal areas via dual weatherproof zippers. In addition, there’s a no-look, one-handed, patented MagLatch top hatch closure. The pack also uses a weatherproof 500D synthetic canvas shell on the exterior that sheds water.
Moreover, there are a minimal amount of dangling straps, adjusters and tails to help maintain a clean look. And internal, configurable FlexFold dividers protect as well as organize gear.
With limited availability of 100 units, the backpack is offered exclusively at Leica Stores and Boutiques. It is available November 20 through Dec. 31, or while supplies last. leicacamerausa.com and peakdesign.com
