Remaining true to the original Kiboko DNA, the 22L+ features a unique butterfly flap access system which allows you to easily get to multiple bodies, lenses, and all your photo accessories without exposing all your prized gear. Kiboko backpacks are made of high-tech materials designed to balance weight and durability. Used by some of the fastest sail boats in the world, VX-21 has a superior strength to weight ratio while remaining abrasion- and tear-resistant. VX-21 is expensive, but your gear is worth it.
Sized to fit the most stringent of international carry-on requirements without sacrificing carrying capacity; this gem can carry up to a 500mm f4.0 lens, and up to a 15" laptop, in style. The Kiboko 22L+ was made to travel with a beefed up harness system that features memory-foam shoulder straps, a vented and padded back panel, a removable waistbelt and shoulder straps that can tuck away when not needed. The bag also has a convenient solution for carrying a tripod.
Can the 22L+ accomodate big bodies with L-brackets like the Bataflae 32L? No. Because of the laptop compartment and the 9" overall depth requirement, the main compartment of the 22L+ is not as deep as the Bataflae 32L and cannot accommodate certain configurations like a body with a grip and an L-bracket. Will a Nikon D3x body fit? Yes, we've used dual bodies configured as shown in the photographs above, but we recommend placing the bodies along the center spine. Smaller bodies without grips like the Canon 5D or Nikon D700 have no limitations.
Yes, the Apple Macbook Pro 17" will fit in the laptop compartment. Why any one travels with a 17" MBP is beyond us, but knock yourself out. No, we're not picking on you, but we prefer to travel as light as possible and the MBP 17" at 6.6 lbs weighs more than the backpack itself.
What lenses will it fit? There is not much that won't fit. There are only three common focal lengths that are too big. The Canon and Nikon 400mm f2.8, 600mm f4.0, and Canon 800 f5.6 fit perfectly in the Bataflae 32L but not the 22L+.
As always, each Kiboko 22L+ comes complete with a custom-fit rain cover and a no-nonsense warranty.
