    Materials

    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.

    handle needed on bottom

    First let me say i LOVE this bag. I have bought and tried MANY different bags and this is by far the best I have ever used. The one thing it is missing is some kind of minimalistic handle (not has big and sturdy as the side and top handles) on the bottom. When you have this open on a bed or table or ground and there is a need to move it, there is no way to gently pick it up. Say, for example, you have it on your bed packing it for a trip and you need to move it to the floor without having to zip everything up, you simply want to grab a handle on the top and bottom and move it over. There is no way to move it in the horizontal position. I got used to simply putting my hand under the bottom and grabbing the handle on the top, but sure do miss a way to get a better grip on the bottom.

    Great bag for telephoto lens

    I had a old gura gear 30L bag that could easy take my 600mm lens on one side and 2 pro bodies, small lens like 100-400, 70-200 lens and Teleconvertors but it was time i had to pick a new bag. Only con with this was i couldnt put a laptop into the old bag.

    I picked up a new gura gear 30+L bag with provision a new laptop. I think this is slightly thin in terms of width but doesn't have any issue in terms of having my 600mm lens, 2 pro bodies, 100-400, 2 teleconvertors. Now I can also put my laptop inside. But be aware that bag becomes pretty heavy but there is no choice. I am happy i can take it as a carry on bag

    Nicely designed and thought out backpack for working pros.

    I don't own a lot of camera backpacks but for times I need a backpack for real work the Kiboku 30+ is the one. Uniquely designed, it holds a lot of gear. I’m a Canon shooter as you might know our lens and bodies are bigger and with that said the bag swallows all of kit when a roller simply can’t do the trick due to terrain, or practicality. It holds 2x Canon bodies R5/R6, RF 24-70, 70-200, 15-35, 100-500, DJI Air 2 drone package, Audio bits, shotgun mic with room for more thanks to two very spacious and useable outer zip pockets, not padded but due to the material it pops out. For those gigs you need a laptop to show client work on location, it holds my 16” MacBook Pro. Two side flex pockets to hold my gimbal/travel tripod on the go with a secure buckle.

    First of face the facts, a backpack this loaded will be heavy, it not magically going to feel feather light. I find the suspension system a little on the stiffer side as it uses thicker foam pads (*I’m a smaller build, maybe that’s why) but still very comfortable on a good trek.

    Pull handles are amazing along with super smooth zips. Quality materials are used throughout this pack. The butterfly opening is something to get use to coming from traditional one flap open bags but once you organize your kit/load out the right way wit this in mind, it’s awesome as it keeps things moving fast.

    Overall very impressed and is now my goto backpack when a full kit is needed.

    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.
