Heavy duty, well-made, and quality designed. Easy setup.
This is an update on my review. I recently was able to use my tent in Death Valley April 12. It was so windy. The tent seem like it was going to collapse. When I woke up in the morning, the tent was solid. The tent kept us cool when we role the openings up and let the breeze flow through the mesh. I change my rating from 4 to 5 because it does deserve that. As for the poles not being coated with something so it doesn't dirty your hands or the tent then that's not on the tents flaw. I still think they should do that. I also think they should give you poles for the awning that is adjustable so you don't have to duck.
I order my tent and got it in about a week. The box is heavy. After taking the stuffs out, the heaviest part are the poles. The poles and flex poles are hefty not those flimsy ones from other tents. This is what makes up 90% of the weight. The tent material I thought would be a little more thicker since it was canvas. I condition the tent by giving a light spray of water all around and letting it dry. I don't know what the 6 stainless steel bolts and nuts are for. Also, I am not sure what the black rope with the white markings or the four smaller diameter stakes are use for .
Pros: Took me about 5 minutes to lay it out, erect and stake the four corners. To put up the awning and staking the rest of the 12 stakes probably took me about 10 minutes. It's roomy and the floor is pretty thick.
Cons: the poles get your hands black and leaves black marks on the tent. It would be nice had the holes been powder coated like the flex poles. I thought the two entry ways on both ends had two doors but it's really one door per side on each end. The awning poles aren't adjustable so you will hit your head if you don't duck. I am 5'6" and I have to duck. If the weather has moisture or if there's rain, the awning will have moisture under it so you will get wet if you're not careful. The roof top tent didn't fully dry like the awning top which is kind of odd to me.
It's definitely a good tent. I was going to buy the OzTent 30 second set up but this wasn't hard and didn't take too long. I am happy with the tent.
I just used my 10x10 deluxe in black rock city for 11 days this thing proved to be amazing. No dust got in my tent other than what I carried in on my feet. People could not Belive how clean it was. Also very easy to set up had it set up by my self in 30 mins on the first try. I can't wait to use it more often this fall and winter! I would recommend it to anybody looking for more room For gear inside. And for car camping trips and has the room to haul it.
After going through several cheap vinyl tents spending hundreds on each, decided to invest in a Canvas tent. After much research found Kodiak. I have had this tent for 2 years now, using it no less than 10 times a year. I live in Michigan so it has seen all kinds of weather. Rain storms with 30mph winds, hail, snow, and whatever else Michigan weather can throw at it, and it has lasted through all of it undamaged. The ground here is also hard and rugged the thick flooring has held up to some of the worst terrain to put a tent on without the hassle of having to put another tarp down to protect the tent. My only drawback is I wish I bought a bigger one. I use the Cam-O-Cot bunk beds for my family of 4, and while they fit nicely it only leaves about a 2 foot path down the center of the tent. However with the overhead and wall storage this helps make up for the lost room. Plus there is plenty of room under the beds to store our suitcases.
The best camp tent.

After extensive research for a tent that would withstand very high winds and rain, I bought this 10 x 10 in 2011, and used it for the 8 days that I was in the Black Rock Desert attending Burning Man. In the dark and with hard packed soil, I did have help from a friend setting it up, but I took it down myself and at other times during daylight and normal ground conditions, it was very easy to put up on my own. It might be a 6 man tent, but for me it was a 1 woman palace ha ha ha ha!
I love the roof line vents that catch a breeze, and the gear pockets and mesh gear holders as they come in very handy. The tent was comfortable even at night when the temperature had dropped down to 40*F. I do not have a heater but during the Burning Man event I had a fleece liner inside a 3 season sleeping bag and slept with a hoodie on...perfect! Almost no playa dust got into the tent...definitely not through the canvas...only what was on my feet. I used dollar store plastic drop sheets under the tent and also inside over the floor.
There is no downside and nothing negative to say about this tent. It has withstood all elements (not used in snow) and looks as good as the 1st day I took it out of the box. Great product.
So I normally borrowed by Dad'a fishing camper for my western Nebraska deer hunting trip with the kids. He sold it so I needed to figure out another plan. I contemplated using the family summer tent but feared it would be to cold for November. I considered a Wall Tent but didn't want that much work and expense. I did my homework and found Kodiak Canvas Tents.
I bought the 10X10 Delux.
In a word-
Super durable. Stands up to strong wind with no problem. Incredible room (no ducking). The awning is perfect and the clearly thoughtful design of the door zippers is excellent .
The kids loved it.
We stayed in a camping spot with electrical plug in and ran a small space heater at night. It was more comfortable - temperature wise - than the old camper.
We fit 3 cots with tons of room to spare.
It got a little warm during the day so we simply opened the windows and vents and it was perfect.
This tent is so well made that I will likely have it for life just as my grandfather had his canvas tent until the day he died and passed it to my brother.
Great job Kodiak.
Thanks for the memories!
After pouring over A LOT of reviews, I finally bought the Flex Bow 10x10. I was on the fence for days between it and the 9x12 Cabin Tent. Either would have been fine. This is by far the best tent purchase I have ever made, and I have had several. I liked the awning not having to come down to cover a window during rain or it would have been the Cabin Tent due to it's available options and the shape of the interior walls (more vertical than "sloped").
But thru the years my type of usage has changed and I no longer need a backpacking tent. And I know for sure I won't be sleeping on the ground any longer! We are more luxury oriented now that my son has been years completing his Eagle Scout. We have slept outdoors in just about every place you can imagine. This is the best type tent you can buy, period. With reasonable care it should shelter us in comfort for the rest of my life and then get passed down.
The tent was very easy to set up after first reading the instructions and understanding what the parts are. I figured out how to get the floor a bit more wrinkle-free next time it goes up. Won't ever need the instructions again. And it actually fit back into the bags the first time! Even in the NC humidity I could touch the tent walls and not get wet by condensation.
If you are in the market for a first class, tough, roomy, and just plain comfortable tent look no further. Worth every penny of the extra (maybe not) money you spend.
