The gray Bataflae 18L Backpack from Gura Gear is a bit smaller than their 26L version but still holds its weight in gear. Store your standard or pro DSLR, medium format or video camera as well as a 300mm f/2.8 lens with hood reversed and lens collar attached or a 70-200mm f/2.8 attached to a body. In addition, there's a dedicated pocket for your 13" laptop, tablet or iPad.

Gura Gear includes their M.O.L.L.E. side strap system that allows you to attach your tripod or monopod in any one of multiple locations. Moreover, quick-hook side straps give you the freedom to attach additional pouches and equipment on the exterior of the pack.

The pack comes with a very useful rain fly that also doubles as a ground cloth for when you're shooting nature or simply need to remove the pack in marginal weather. The handles are all riveted for extra strength and the adjustable shoulder straps are quite comfortable. The zippers are all color-coded, YKK water-repellent and come with pulls that are easy to use when you're wearing gloves.

The front of the pack has two full-length exterior pockets that can be used for ID, tickets, passport or other travel documents. No need to search through the interior for papers you need rapid access to. These pockets are also large enough for a jacket, snack or book. Inside, the divider system is padded and movable giving you the opportunity to arrange and organize your gear as you see fit and need. The interior also has multiple mesh pockets for all small stuff that normally gets lost in the bottom of traditional packs.

The shoulder straps are supplied with extra strong buckles. For construction, the pack is made from a durable combination of nylon and polyurethane. It also includes padded air mesh and an additional nylon lining. Extra features include an exterior water bottle pocket, key fob, expandable exterior mesh pocket, touch fastened strap keepers and lockable main compartment. When the bag is not needed, it comes with a very handy storage bag to protect it from dust and dirt. The pack comes with Gura Gear's 5-year ultimate warranty for the workmanship.

          Comments about Bataflae 18L Backpack (Tan):

          The Bataflae 18L is quite lightweight but very sturdy. Because the dividers use high-density padding, they can be thinner than on other bags and backpacks. That means that this backpack can carry almost as much as much larger bags. If you've got a lot of equipment, it's a perfect daypack. And if you've only got a "reasonable" amount of gear, this backpack will hold it all.

          I wish Gura Gear would come up with a more reasonable name for the Bataflae 18L, but this pack is a delight to work with. Heartily recommended.

            Comments about Bataflae 18L Backpack (Black):

            I often fly regional jets on the way to assignments. Consequently, larger rolling cases tend not to fit and I'm often forced to gate check a bag full of equipment. On a recent assignment, the airlines damaged a Nikkor 70-200mm lens. I decided that on my next assignment that required traveling by regional jet that I would use the Gura Gear 18L backpack, as it was cheaper than the lens repair. This bag held two Nikon DSLRs and 5 lenses, as well as an SB-910 strobe and CF cards. It worked like a charm AND it fit in the over head bin. In short, it solved my problem when flying on small, regional jets. It also makes a great everyday bag, too.

              Comments about Bataflae 18L Backpack (Gray):

              This thing is pretty huge, I can fit Einsteins, a camera, and lenses no problem. Comfy, lots of dividers, light, sturdy. Only one thing, they could have easily made room for a 15" Macbook if the zipper was about a quarter inch longer. Mine fit in with little effort, it was just getting it out that was a pain. I spent a half an hour (fortunately I was at home at the time), and eventually succeeded by locking down the end of the zipper with a clamp, looping a shoestring under the computer, bracing the backpack against my feet and pulling really hard. Not something I'd recommend, but the pack is plenty deep to allow you to put your 15" in the main pocket on top of the dividers and things. It would get five stars if they had made the zipper go around the top of the pack so you could get larger computers in and out easily. Hopefully there will be an design revision.

                no problem in holding Nikon D7000 with Sigma 50-500 attached. It still has ample room for lenses and other accessories

                wish bottom had some sort of rubberized coating for toughness with many types of surfaces.

                  The bas feels light, but made of strong and durable material. You can fit a ton of equipment despite its small appearance. The shoulder pads are comfortable with various points of adjustments. The pockets are nice and plentiful. I have my D800e with grip attached, plus the set of f4 Nikon zooms and 35 and 85 1.4.
