The Kodiak is basically a big version of the Sitka, so check out the review above if you get lost here. As a starting note, I took off the Y-strap as shown in my pictures. Fans of this strap need not worry as it is included. For those running out of room on the Stika, Mister Kodiak here doesn't mess around with almost double the cubic inch capacity. Features wise almost everything is the same, done bigger, until you get to the interior.
Inside it appears the layouts have been reversed so that the CCW side is now on the interior back. This area now has a large zippered sleeve pocket with large and small divisions. Under all of that is the loop velcro sleeve area for CCW action. Since a fairly long panel, a SRB strap is integrated to give added pocket control. The Interior front of the Kodiak is similar, yet starts with a zippered mesh sleeve pocket. Large and small divisions are formed and a simple large sleeve pocket is located in the back. Another SRB strap is sewn in to help hold and compress the whole side.
If you plan on hauling bulky or just numerous items I suggest checking out the Kodiak over the Sitka. Do be careful however as this pack is big and rugged enough to hold some serious weight. Since there is only 1 shoulder strap that is not ambidextrous, heavy weight can turn into discomfort rather rapidly. The design is great for grab and go and quick access, however totally not made for long haul heavy loads comfort wise. As an example, a bunch of clothes and gadgets would be fine, however going on a long trek with a pro gamer laptop plus all the heavy accessories is not so fun. If I were to change something, I'd take out the anti-theft system and add more PALS on the right side. I think modularity would be used more than the anti-theft. That said and considered, I still find the Kodiak to be an overall great design.
