I am a surveyor who wears boots every day and the Kodiak are the best boot I have ever had. I was able to get 28 months use out these boots before the soles were slick, nothing wrong with the uppers. Wish I could find another pair.

Awesome boots. I took them up Rainier, and didn't get cold or wet feet. I've used them mountaineering all over the Cascades (some of the wettest mountains around) and have never gotten wet feet. They work much better than plastic boots. I have found they work great with the Black Diamond Sabretooth crampons. Overall, the best boot I have ever owned.

Rating: rated 4 of 5 stars
Materials: 3.4mm Perwanger suede leather, Thinsulate, Dry-lex, Outlast, rubber, steel shank
Use: heavy backpacking, extended trekking, general mountaineering, mixed/ice climbing
Break-in Period: Never/Unknown
Weight: 5 lb. 10 oz. pair
Price Paid: USD 180

I have had these boots for over two years now, and they are still almost as stiff as the day I bought them. The wide size is still narrow in the toe, but this does help in technical climbing. There is very little flex, because the sole and the leather are very stiff. The metal eyelets do not allow for speed lacing, which gets annoying. The 360 degree rubber rand makes these boots bombproof. Fully crampon-compatible, all leather mountaineering boot is great for heavy backpacking, off-trail bushwacking, general mountaineering, and kicking steps in snow. They do not have GORE-TEX, but I have not had leak yet. Overall, great boot.
