X-PAC® VX-21 by Dimension Polyant is the most light-weight and durable fabric ever for ultimate protection from the elements. We were the first to implement this material into camera bag design.

Built in high visibility blue lining, never forget to zip up again! The Kiboko Backpack line adds an extra layer of protection with this visual cue.

Our bags are infinitely configurable and come with plenty of extra divider types to accomodate any setup imaginable. Our dividers are also made out of Artillion Foam which is the same stuff used in motorcycle helmets. High impact protection, low weight and profile.

The Kiboko 16L stays within international flight carry-on size regulations. The bag comes in at only 3lbs freeing up weight to bring extra gear instead of extra bag on your next trip.

X-Pac VX-21

In all of our gear we use X-Pac VX-21, a sailcloth-inspired laminated rip-stop nylon. This is the gold standard in materials for bags. Even after years of abuse it holds up as a durable, water resistant, and utlra lightweight material. Some of our legacy users are still using their original Kibokos from 10 years ago.

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.
