"Gura Gear President, Gregory Schern stated, “this acquisition represents an exciting opportunity for Gura Gear to build upon a brand with a legacy of designing solutions for photographers and a dedicated customer following while leveraging worldwide distribution. We look forward to providing customers a high level of service and implementing solutions from a new perspective in a rapidly evolving industry.”"

Looking at the current Range of Gura Gear, I would suggest that the acquisition of Tamrac should give them a few pointers on how to produce a more rugged and better padded innovative carrying solutions!

Whether they call them innovative carrying solutions or whatever, I hope they keep some of the style of tamrac bags; I've found them to suit my needs best overtime - and keep them affordable!
