Hands on with the Kiboko Photo Backpack by Gura Gear

September 10th, 2009 by Juan A. Pons

The Kiboko photo backpack was created with the intent of creating the lightest photo backpack in the market in order to satisfy some of the strictest airline carry-on bag regulations, while not compromising on durability, protection, capacity or features.

The Kiboko is the brainchild of Andy Biggs, an accomplished african wildlife photographer who spends an enormous amount of time traveling, sometimes in very small planes, while leading his African Photo Safaris. Truly this is a bag designed by a photographer, for photographers.

Amazingly, this bag weighs only 4 lbs when empty, yet can hold an impressive amount of equipment. The bag is peppered with an assortment of very thoughtful and unique features, from the nice and big zipper pulls, the diagonally placement of one of the carry handles, to the dedicated storage compartment for the rain cover.
