rated 2 of 5 stars Very difficult to seam seal. It has leaked since the day I bought it. Re-sealed...still leaks. Anyone want to buy a used Kaja? Looks better than it works. Full review

Garuda was purchased by Anthony Industries, the parent company of K2 Inc. which also owned Dana Designs. In 1997, Garuda became Garuda by Dana Design. K2 absorbed the Marmot brand in 2004 and in 2005 Marmot absorbed Dana Design and no longer uses the Dana Design brand name.
