Wow. What a great opening out of the gate. I launched Gura Gear in early November 2008, and in a short four months I completely sold out of my first production run of the Kiboko camera bag. I did not anticipate this much demand, but it illustrates just how thirsty the market is for a paradigm-shifting type of product. As mentioned earlier, I started thinking about the problem of overweight camera bags back in early 2005, and it took a few years for me to bring the proper product to market. Thank you to everyone who has supported my efforts, and if you purchased a bag I just want to say a huge THANK YOU for your business.
I will have the Kiboko bag back in stock in a few months, and you can always grab your spot in the ordering system so a bag will make it to your doorstep as soon as I get them back in stock.
I often hear questions like 'are you going to make this kind of product' or 'are you coming out with any new products soon', and even though I cannot directly answer the questions with my plans, I will say that I am working hard to solve common problems for traveling photographers. If you think you have an idea, by all means contact me with your thoughts. I may already be working on such an idea, or I may not have heard or thought of it. If you are tired of seeing the same old types of products hit the market, well so am I. Contact me if you want to vent!
