On User Review: Gura Gear Kiboko 30L Backpack article (113 comments in total)

As an avid safari photographer I'd been looking for something more lightweight than the mainstream camera bags. For those who aren't aware, many african airlines place weight restrictions on your total luggage (20kg). So in my quest to find a lightweight bag with sufficient protection for all of my gear I came across the Kiboko 30L. Despite its name (Kiboko means hippo in Swahili) as Carsten points out it only weighs 1.8kg.

It doesn't look like a camera bag, so I don't get asked many questions when transiting through Africa, it fits all of my gear in it:
Nikon 200-400mm f/4
Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8
Nikon 50mm f/1.4
Nikon 16-35mm f/4
Nikon D4
Nikon D800
Nikon 1.4x TC
Nikon 2.0x TC
Fujitsu life book tablet
Chargers, spare batteries, filters, you name it.

The only thing that I really yearned for was a place to properly store my laptop. Bang, along comes the Kiboko 22L. Surprisingly everything fits in this smaller model.

I'd say like, but it really is love.
