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. 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’.

The company’s heritage began on the back of the ubiquitous napkin by a team of passionate individuals while enjoying a refreshing break on safari in Africa. The goal was to answer the question of what the perfect camera bag looks like. The scribbled notes (later deciphered with clear minds) described a bag that should be big enough to hold long glass, but small enough to carry on regional jets, wrapped in a clean understated lightweight design. It should have a comfortable, yet stowable harness for simplicity and ultimate portability in backwater airports. The resulting Kiboko was proof enough that Gura Gear’s purpose in life was to travel a lot, eat great food and draw on napkins. After a few years the resulting ideas have grown in to a full line of carrying solutions for visual thinkers.
At Gura Gear, we have always paid careful attention to detail and quality in every aspect of our business. Our products are durable, lightweight, and fully functional. We stand by every product we deliver, because we’ve used it in real world environments. We design for our lifestyle and those that appreciate traveling with purpose. We pursue our passions, often from behind the viewfinder, but never from a couch, unless that couch is on the deck of a lodge overlooking the northern wilderness after a long day of chasing bears. You can find us in airports, Land Rovers bumping across the Serengeti, freezing our collective rears off with penguins in Antarctica, and hiking to our favorite local Utah canyons. Every once in a while, we even sit in an office.
