Gura Gear Kiboko 22L+ Backpack (Black)
Key Features
  • Holds 2 DSLRs, 4 Lenses, Accessories
  • Holds up to a 500mm f/4 Lens
  • Holds 15" Laptop; MacBook Pro 17"
  • X-21 Sail Cloth Material/Tear-Resistant
The black Kiboko 22L+ Backpack from Gura Gear may not be as large as its big brother, the Kiboko 30L, but it still packs a big bang for your buck. With its capacity to hold two DSLRs, four lenses - one up to a 500mm f/4, plus accessories, this lightweight pack has one advantage over its larger sibling. The 22L+ has a separate pocket for a 15" laptop but can also accommodate some 17" laptops such as a 17" MacBook Pro. Kiboko recommends placing your camera bodies along the center spine of the bag but smaller DSLRs can be placed wherever it's convenient.

The exterior is made from the very same rugged VX-21 sail cloth material as the 30L and the customizable interior, with its soft dividers, allows you to configure the bag to suit your needs. VX-21 material is abrasion and tear-resistant and is used on some of the world's most celebrated America's Cup racing boats because of its strength and durability.

Kiboko's unique zippered butterfly flap design permits you full access to your gear without the need to unzip multiple pockets found on other backpacks. The central flap unzips to give you a complete view of your contents. It's also handy for storing the tuck-away harness and waist belt system. The zippers contain handy ring pulls that are quite useful especially when you're wearing gloves.

The harness system is wide, foam-filled, comfortable, fully adjustable and supported by an additional snap coupled sternum strap for added stability while walking or hiking. The back panel has been vented to provide enhanced air circulation and heat dissipation while on the move. The waist belt is also wide, adjustable and fully removable in case you aren't carrying a heavy load and require a lighter, less cumbersome pack. When not needed, both the straps and belt can be hidden within the central butterfly flap. To compensate for that, Kiboko provides both top and side grab handles for quick retrieval from a car, closet or luggage rack. A handy tripod attachment will come in handy for those long exposure or macro shots.

For inclement weather, a rain cover is included to completely enshroud the 22L+. Kiboko's fix it or replace it five-year warranty against manufacturer's defects is respectable. Its lighter weight design is a trade-off between similar packs that contain more padding that add weight and the 22L+'s lighter, more durable fabric that permits you to carry more gear but save on the overall weight of the pack.

Hi - I just received this bag and I can't figure out how to remove the rain cover. It looks like it's completely sewn into a pouch in the right outer zipper compartment. Is there an easy way to remove it other than cutting the pouch? Thanks.
Asked by: Bennett P.
Sorry for a late reply as I was away on holidays. Not sure if you have figured it out, but there is another short zipper just below the top flap. The zipper is in line with the cover bag pouch. If you unzip it you can pull out the cover.Kind regards,Francois

I bought a very slightly used Kiboko 22L I am not mechanically inclined and cannot determine how to connect and secure the back pack straps. Is there a user manual or brochure I can buy?

Hi - Does the bag have a water bottle pocket? Thanks.
Asked by: Bennett P.
There are net pockets outside on both sides of the cases. The one next to the side handle is a bit obstructed by the handle and I use it to keep the harsh weather cover for the case. However, the one on the other side will work just fine for carrying a water bottle. Using it does mean that if you choose to use the side-handle, setting it down in suitcase fashion will have the water bottle on the bottom. I mostly use the top-handle and have no problems.

Will this bag fit in the overhead aircraft compartment or under the seat?
Asked by: Pamela M.
It fits in an overhead, not under the seat.
