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.
