Gura Gear Launches New Color for Bataflae
« on: January 07, 2014, 06:52:16 PM »
Gura Gear is excited to introduce the newest limited edition color in the Bataflae 32L – Stone Green. Stone Green was inspired by our recent work in the field and will be available exclusively in the Bataflae 32L beginning in Mid-January 2014. The limited edition Grey and Tan colors of the Bataflae 32L were discontinued last fall, and we 32L_StoneGreen are currently out of stock of the Grey Bataflae 32L and have limited quantities remaining of the Tan Bataflae 32L. Pre-order the new Stone Green today to receive it in the first shipment later this month. If you have any questions, please contact Sarah Hamilton at sarah@guragear.com or +1 (801) 823-2809.

CR’s Take I love the Bataflae 32L bag, I think it’s the best travel bag when you have to move lots of gear. Below is the gear inside my Bataflae 32L right now. I’m currently travelling through Florida, Costa Rica and Suriname. I’ve never had a problem with getting this bag onto an airplane as carry-on. As it sits, it’s a solid 40lbs of gear!

I like this bag as it’s a backpack, a rolling bag would be quite cumbersome when travelling to locations that do not have paved paths. This bag itself weighs about 4.5lbs, which is extremely light for a backpack.

There’s no laptop pouch in the 32L, which is ok, as I wouldn’t want 40lbs of gear on top of the laptop if the bag falls that way, the Bataflae 22L does have a laptop sleeve. That being said, every airline I’ve flown with allows a separate laptop/messenger bag, which I use for laptop, headphones, media tools.

There’s no perfect camera bag, as most of us have more than one. If you’re in the market for a versatile gear mover, take a look at the Bataflae line of bags.

Where did you get the yellow caps on the big lenses?  I need something better than stock for the 200mm f2, 400mm f4, 600mm f4.

Thanks.

That's a good question. The only alternatives to Canon's caps that I'm aware of are Don Zeck Lens Caps and LensHoodie/OPTECH Caps. If there are some other products, I'd love to hear about them as well.

I have the older Kiboko, and use it to carry a 500mm and 300mm, plus an assortment of other items, including two bodies and teleconverters. I keep the Canon lens shades and leather covers on the lenses with this Gura bag. I would not to leave the lens shades behind.

$45,000 worth of gear (give or take).

That's a lot of eggs in one basket.   :o

I've owned several rucksacks, but settled on the Lowepro Flipside 400. The security features alone it provides, with its body-side access, makes it hard to even consider other bags.

I've got a metal lathe and I'm thinking I can just turn some plastic, put a lip on it, then glue in a strip of some sort of material that will compress a little.  I can easily turn a lip that fits inside and if I angle that a bit then the compression material will get tighter as I push it in.  Then I just need some sort of way to make a handle, probably copy the Zeck lens handle.

Watcha think?

I use the optech caps.  A friend uses tupperware plates or lids.

Notice that you can not see the tripod foot.  I put the foot up in the bag (side that opens), so I can pack around it - batteries, card wallet, etc.  How do other people pack their bag?
