Pros Warm, awesome comfort, great warmth to weight ratioComfortable, spacious, lightweightWarm, highly weather resistantOne of the warmest bags in the test, excellent color schemeLightest bag in its class, super lofty, awesome zipper
Cons ExpensiveNot as warm as similarly rated bags, zipper snags on draft tubesSmall hood, tight cutLack of hydrophobic down, missing top hood cinchShallow hood, not as warm as the heavier contenders
Bottom Line The Kodiak is the cream of the crop when it comes to loft and comfortLoaded with features, this bag is great for those looking for a little luxury in the backcountryThis bag has a weight saving fitted cut and is great for alpine missions when you'll encounter wet snowWithout hydrophobic down, this one earns a top score among our test bagsA great bag when weight matters, especially for ski touring or cold weather backpacking
