“This by far the best bag you can buy in this class. Clever design, lightweight, comfortable, great build quality, and it swallows a ton of gear” -Marsel van Oosten, 2018 International Wildlife Photographer of the Year

GuraGear today announces the relaunch of the storied Kiboko camera backpack line and the companion Et Cetera line of accessory cases and pouches. A cult classic among outdoor photographers since 2009, GuraGear’s, Kiboko bags are specifically designed for traveling to and shooting in extreme conditions, such as Africa and Antarctica. Customer demand led Andy Biggs, GuraGear’s co-founder, to update the product and the result is the Kiboko 2.0 line.

“The Kiboko 2.0 line of camera bags allow photographers to travel to their destination with the lightest weight bag possible. The bags are durable, well-built and fully functional. I use different sized bags, depending on the trip and equipment I am carrying, from our 16L bag for mirrorless camera systems all the way up to our 30L bag for large wildlife lenses,” explained co-founder and award winning wildlife photographer Andy Biggs.

The Kiboko 2.0 backpacks feature side-by-side, front facing zippered panels which fold open toward the center of the backpack. This unique butterfly configuration reduces the footprint of the bag while shooting and limits exposure of delicate gear to the elements. The dual access panels also increase the storage efficiency of the bags, allowing 2 DSLRs or mirrorless cameras plus lenses, to be stored with room for more. Constructed with Dimension Polyant VX-21, a patented four layer laminated high-tech sail cloth fabric, the backpacks are water resistant, durable and extremely lightweight. Each pack features ergonomic handles, tripod and water bottle stowage and removable seam sealed rain covers, for use in torrential downpours.

“This by far the best bag you can buy in this class. Clever design, lightweight, comfortable, great build quality, and it swallows a ton of gear” -Marsel van Oosten, 2018 International Wildlife Photographer of the Year.

The product line comes in three models, each focused on specific equipment:

  • Kiboko 2.0 30L is designed for pro-sized DSLRS and super-telephoto lenses, or, simply a lot of gear. Due to depth restrictions in overhead bins, the 30L does not have a laptop compartment.
  • Kiboko 2.0 22L is designed for DSLRs or mirrorless cameras with grips, and up to a 15” laptop
  • Kiboko 2.0 16L is designed for mirrorless systems, and up to a thin 13” laptop

The Et Cetera line of accessory pouches and cases helps keep all your chargers, cables, radio triggers, noise cancelling headphones, batteries and other accessories organized and accessible. There are three pounches and two cases for a multitude of packing options.

GuraGear has partnered with B&H, one of the world’s largest independent retailers of photography equipment. Kiboko 2.0 backpacks and Et Cetera accessory bags are available in the United States exclusively at http://www.bhphoto.com and their New York City SuperStore.
