    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. 

    Standard for the best in the biz.

    Gura Gear bags have long been known for there premium quality and genius simplicity. Photographers like Gura Gear pro team Marsel Van Oosten have been using the gear for years. Combining our Kiboko camera bag, Chobe everyday brief and Et Cetera Accessory pouches for the ultimate working photographer carrying kit.

    Great Add-ons for a Kiboko Camera Bag!
