Gura Gear Introduces New Adventure Backpack for Photographers

Gura Gear Introduces New Adventure Backpack for Photographers

Gura Gear, a CR favourite, has launched a new bag which is sure to be a hit for professional photographers everywhere. From their release:

“We are excited to introduce the newest addiition to the Gura Gear product line, the Uinta adventure backpack system. Named after the majestic Uinta mountain range located right in our backyard of Northern Utah, the Uinta is the ultimate adventure pack ready to haul camera gear and hiking essentials wherever your travels take you.

The Uinta is an adventure pack designed to utilize our new modular photo inserts and tripod and hydration system. Small Pro and Medium Pro Modules as well as a Tripod & Hydration System (THS) are available as separate components.”

JVL’s take:
We all tend to pack our bags to capacity, or even beyond it, often forgetting we need basic survival gear for ourselves. A bottle of water, an apple, maybe a sweater. The modular nature of the Uinta gives you the opportunity to choose how much space you need for gear, and how much for everything else. I could have used this bag when I went to Iceland a few years ago. I also know CR swear’s by his GuraGear packs and won’t hear about anything else from anyone else. From what I can see (I don’t own one myself) I tend to agree that if you need to max out your gear in a bag that works perfectly, GuraGear is the choice of many pros and amateurs alike.

Gura Gear has a special when you purchase a Uinta with the Small Pro and Medium Pro Modules; you receive a free Tripod & Hydration System when you mail in this form. (Valid until February 28th 2014)

You can see full details on the bag, including many photographs on the Gura Gear website.

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.
