    Gura Gear Unita 30L Reviews

    Close to what I had hoped for

    Rated 4 out of 5
    Date: 2015-01-25

    I have been looking for a multi purpose camera bag like this for years. I've had a few other brands that I had hoped would work but ended up giving up on them. I know there are no perfect bags but this one looked pretty close. The hold up I had was the modules being 6 deep and my Fujifilm X-T1 system likely getting swallowed in it. When I saw the new Compact size modules being introduced I took the plunge and got the Uinta in anticipation of the new modules. Gura Gear has always had great reviews for their quality and features. So many users can't be wrong. I have to say that this Uinta is an amazingly well constructed bag and I would have probably given it a 5 Star rating except for a couple of things. Before buying I had researched the life out of this bag. I watched every review I could find on YouTube and each of the videos on the Gura Gear site. I like the say the straps attached and they slick waist belt system they had. Then I got my bag. Somewhere after the videos were made Gura Gear made changes on both the four side straps and also the waist belt. The new attachments are not as good, in my opinion, as the originals appeared to be. The only reason I can imagine for having changed was a cost cutting measure on GG's part. The side straps do not lock in to place and anytime you loosed them the hook end can, and does often, slip out. An annoyance and inconvenience at worst but it is all the same an annoyance and inconvenience. I remedied this by inserting the hook end in to the loop and then stitching a little along the hook through the loop so it can't slide out. The downside of this is that you also can't totally open the side straps if you have something large you want to get in there. The hip belt hardware was also changed and where it's illustrated on their videos have having a convenient mechanism for attaching the loose ends, the new one simply has a slot to slide the loose end in to but no way to secure it, so it easily slips out and then dangles down. Again, disappointed because I didn't get what I had thought I was getting. I was able to come up with a fix for this by sliding the return of the straps on both sides through the plastic loop that also has the hook for holding the loose end. That hook is now unused and the strap goes through the loop twice. It's a little less convenient for adjusting the tightness around your waist but I am able to adjust it and the size stays where you put it and the loose ends are not loose. I also purchased the Small Compact Module and it didn't have straps that the description says are included and the dividers do not allow for setting it up to hold a camera with lens attached and additional lenses. There would be room, and it says you can do this but I can't figure out a way to configure it to do so and there are no illustrations that I can find to help with that. All that to say, Gura Gear has made a good product but disappointed on a couple things that would have made me much more satisfied with it and with them as a company. I would have given them 3.5 stars for that but since there's no halvsies I'll go with the 4. One more plus for this bag, I am 6'4 and a lot of camera bags are way too short for my torso. This one is one of the best fits I've had.

    Well Built Light weight bag!

    I really enjoy hiking + photography. When I first heard about this bag I was blown away because it seemed like the *perfect* solution for me. tl;dr the Uinta does not disappoint. I am able to fit everything I need for a day hike and still not feel over-burdened. The modules fit best when you have both of them installed. I found that if I only had the small module installed at the bottom some items would wedge themselves between the sides of the pack and the module at the base. I wish there was more separation between the open-space and the modules. I did *not* buy the tripod/hydration attachment and would not recommend it. It is a shame that the pack does not have a tripod / water solution built in (this is part of the reason why my review is 4 stars). I used the side loops for my tripod and placed by reservoir in the sleeve traditionally used for laptop storage. (Because who hikes with a 17 laptop?!) Anyways, I cannot recommend this bag highly enough if you have the need to carry photography gear and other items while embarking on a strenuous hike.

    Finally found the perfect travel pack

    I searched the internet for a backpack that wasn't too large, but could fit a laptop, tripod, my gear and have room for some clothes. I finally found that with the Uinta. There is enough space, for my macbook pro, 5d mark iii with grip, 70-200, 50mm, 16-35mm, 580 exii flash, wireless transmitters and battery chargers. (that is just with the Medium Pro module, not the small module as well)I also enjoy two entry ways into the bag, from the back as well as the main front zipper.The only think I don't like is the price. At $ you only get the shell, and you dont get modules for the insides or the tripod holder. It gets expensive if you want to buy everything.

    Great backpack, strongly recommend.

    I've been looking for a pack like this for a long time. The Uinta is very lightweight, yet sturdy enough to keep my equipment safe. I bought the small module(?) because at this point I just want to carry a few lenses with me while holding my camera. If it starts to rain or there's a stretch of time I know I won't be using my camera, I just put it in the larger compartment of the pack along with my jacket or other items. The main compartment of the pack is quite roomy and the front pocket is perfect for filters, batteries, my wallet, cleaning supplies, cell phone, etc. At some point I'll probably pick up the medium module but for now and for a short vacation I'm going on, the small one will be just fine. The harness is very comfortable even though I have a short torso. I'm really enjoying this pack.

    Is this backpack empty (void of any sections/compartments) if you don't buy the extra modules?
