Pros Super warm, thermally efficientWarm, awesome comfort, great warmth to weight ratioComfortable, spacious, lightweightWarm, highly weather resistantOne of the warmest bags in the test, excellent color scheme
Cons Half length zipper doesn't allow for venting the footboxExpensiveNot as warm as similarly rated bags, zipper snags on draft tubesSmall hood, tight cutLack of hydrophobic down, missing top hood cinch
Bottom Line This bag creates a towering lofty barrier between you and the coldThe 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 bags
