Great for Snowshoes, too
I've done a few winter 14ers with the Kode and it works very well. No problems carrying snowshoes with the rear, center strap system, and the sides can handle an ice ax and trekking poles. My friends had frozen bladder hoses within a few hours, but I never had a problem with my CamelBak. In colder conditions, I'd add a chemical handwarmer to the bladder and bite valve pockets if needed.
