Pros One of the warmest bags in the test, excellent color schemeWarm, awesome comfort, great warmth to weight ratioComfortable, spacious, lightweightWarm, highly weather resistantLightest bag in its class, super lofty, awesome zipper
Cons Lack of hydrophobic down, missing top hood cinchExpensiveNot as warm as similarly rated bags, zipper snags on draft tubesSmall hood, tight cutShallow hood, not as warm as the heavier contenders
Bottom Line Without hydrophobic down, this one earns a top score among our test bagsThe 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 snowA great bag when weight matters, especially for ski touring or cold weather backpacking
