The external shell fabric used for our Kiboko line is X-Pac® VX-21 by Dimension Polyant which is extremely lightweight, durable and weather resistant.

The internal padding used on our dividers is Artilion foam which is the same padding used in motorcycle helmets. The reason we use this for the dividers of our bags is because Artilion foam gets stronger as it becomes more compressed therefore protecting your gear maximally. It is also extremely light weight.

Why 30L (no laptop sleeve) and 30L+ ?

“With the 30L, we built the largest capacity backpack possible - some of the largest super telephoto lenses fit.

With the advent of a new generation of telephoto lenses and full frame mirrorless camera systems, the time was right to trade a small amount of depth in the main compartment and add the laptop sleeve. The carrying capacity of the new 30L+ still remains unparalleled.”

Supertelephoto Ready

With 20 inches of length and 5.5 inches of depth, the 30L+ can carry many of the largest super telephotos., including this Canon EF 800mm f/5.6L

Our History

Solving for a critical need: Weight

Co-founders Trevor Peterson and renowned wildlife photographer Andy Biggs created Gura Gear to answer a problem critical to traveling to extreme locations: weight limits on photo gear.

En-route independently to East Africa, both Andy and Trevor got into some trouble with the carryon restrictions at Schiphol airport in Amsterdam. “I had packed two Nikon Pro DSLR bodies and 200-400mm f/4, 70-200mm f/2.8, & 24-70mm f/2.8 lenses, putting me past the weight limits. It took some convincing to get in the air, "-Trevor.

Talking over the campfire after a long day of photographing wildlife, Andy and Trevor discussed what the perfect camera bag would be. Literally on the back of napkin, the Kiboko backpack was sketched out. 

Over two years of development, eight rounds of prototypes, and one patent application later (and one very frustrated factory manager), the Kiboko camera backpack was launched.
