Hey, everybody. My name is Robert Rodriguez, Jr. I’m a landscape
photographer, working primarily right here in the beautiful Hudson Valley
region of New York. For me as an outdoor photographer and hiker, nothing
beats a great backpack for getting my gear around. I’ve used lots of
backpacks from different manufacturers over my career, but for the last few
years, I’ve relied exclusively on Gura Gear bags. They’re light and well
designed. They’re strong, and most importantly for me, they’re really
comfortable on my back and shoulders, especially when I’m carrying lots of
heavy gear around. They just make my life in the field a lot easier,
whether I’m carrying stuff around out here on a long hike, traveling my
air, or just getting my gear from one place to another in my car.
I’ve been field-testing their latest model, the Bataflae 26L, for a few
months now. I have to tell you, I really, really, really like it. It’s got
some great new features over past models from Gura Gear, the most obvious
one being this beautiful new color that it comes in; a nice gray. I thought
I would share my thoughts and opinions, and also go over some of the key
features of this bag that make it a top choice for me, and help you decide
whether it’s the right bag for you.
We’re back here in my studio where it’s a little bit warmer than it was
outside, thankfully. Let’s get right into it. The Bataflae bag comes in two
sizes, a 26L and a 32L; ‘L’ stands for liters. The only difference, really,
between the two bags is the height. The 32L is about 4 inches higher than
the 26, otherwise, same width and same depth. It really depends on your
personal preference, how much gear you want to carry. For me, the 26L kind
of fit the sweet spot between the size, the weight when it’s loaded, and
