Gura Gear Launches New Color for Bataflae

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.

Gura Gear Giveaway!
If you’ve followed Canon Rumors for a while now, you probably realize that I am a rabid Gura Gear fan. I could be called a camera bag dork, I just love their stuff that much. They are my Louis Vuitton, and a lot cheaper and more functional! I’ve taken my Kiboko all over the planet and it works the same as when it was new, I don’t think you can get a better travel backpack then what Gura Gear produces.

Gura Gear has recently been launching a wide array of new products. Most notably the Bataflae line. New 18L, 26L and 32L bags. I recently purchased (nope, they didnt give them to me) the Bataflae 18L and 32L.

So I thought we could give away some Gura Gear products, I know whoever wins them will love them. We will have 4 prize packs of Gura Gear accesories and one Bataflae 18L & accessory pack to give away as a grand prize.

Gura Gear Announces The Bataflae 32L & 26L Camera Backpacks

GURA GEAR ANNOUNCES THE BATAFLAE RANGE OF CAMERA BACKPACKS FOR TRAVELERS
Introducing the camera bag with an innovative patent pending multi-access system designed for traveling visual artists. OGDEN, UT (September, 2012) – Designed by Gura Gear, the company that developed the revolutionary Kiboko photo bags, the Bataflae represents the next evolution of creative design and refinement for photographers and videographers featuring a patent pending butterfly multi-access system and stowaway harness. Bataflae is aimed at traveling photographers needing to navigate through the world’s airports with carry-on compatibility and a lightweight durable design.

Bataflae’s unique patent pending butterfly multi-access system features a smarter way of carrying and accessing camera gear. The unique configuration maximizes the interior space making it possible to work out of the bag with multiple bodies attached to lenses in the field. Available in 32L and 26L variants, the Bataflae swallows professional size DSLRs, medium format systems, and long lenses. The butterfly flaps provide access to just the gear needed, useful in tight environments like tour vehicles and stadiums, or in rough conditions where exposing the entire kit is less desirable. There are times, however, when opening the bag completely is helpful, like loading and unloading or in studio environments. With the quick pinch of a buckle, the butterfly flaps release to a full traditional opening.

Gura Gear Bataflae 32L & 26L Camera Backpacks

Available in black, grey, and tan, the Bataflae is PVC-free, features durable materials, flawless craftsmanship and the world’s best zippers, YKK RC Fuse with a weather resistant coating that repels dust and water while remaining flexible and easy to operate.

Additional innovative features of the Bataflae include a M.O.L.L.E. compatible side attachment system that allows for unique multi-point tripod/monopod configurations as well as the attachment of other accessories with the innovative quick-hook side straps. Each bag comes with a removable seam-sealed adjustable rain cover/ground cloth, fully riveted handles, and color-coded zipper pulls that can easily be operated with gloved hands. Two full-length external accessory compartments on the front allow for the storage of travel documents, light jacket and snacks, while the multiple internal mesh pockets and a fully adjustable divider system help keep gear organized.

Bataflae is Bislama (Vanuatu) for ‘butterfly’.

Bataflae 32L and 26L are available for pre-order at www.guragear.com or by calling +1 (801) 823-2809.
