I bought a pair of these along with a pair of 5.11 Styke pants. The latter fit like I expected a 36/32 to fit. The Kodiak pants were loose in the waste so I washed them and put them away, hoping they would shrink. I dug them out today and they are still loose. Although marked 36/32 they did not feel right. I laid them out on the bed, flattened out the waste and laid the Stryke pants out, in similar fashion, on top of them. The Kodiak pants are a clear 2 inches wider than the similar sized Stryke pants. Try them on and send them back before you remove the tags, and get your hard earned $ back. without a belt, they will be down by your ankles.
A little upset that the 1.0 has been discontinued and replaced with a lighter pant. The double pockets, heavy weight and multiple colors are what this pant is missing. The addition of an extra magazine pocket above the rear is very welcome however.
In review of the kodiak 1.0 pant I have to say I am very pleased with them as their heavyweight construction has kept them intact to this day and acting in the same manner as they did when I bought them 2 years ago. The dual front and rear pockets provide excellent organization and heavy weight provides excellent warmth in the Canadian winter. The variety of colors made them applicable for all types of environments and seasons along with specific uniform codes. I can say with out a doubt I would purchase these pants again should 5.11 bring back the good features of the kodiak 1.0 (double pockets, heavy weight and, colors) and the new belt looping system and new extra rear mag pocket of the 2.0
Got my pants, and honestly I love the weight of the fabric, and the position of the pockets. Hopefully 5.11 will carry more colors in the future
I really like my old pants. They were the heavy duty pants in your lineup. I wish I could get more of them.
I do not like the lighter weight and believe the original Kodiak's were a better design. better placement of pockets and clip/magazine pockets.
