Set up is easy. Take down the same. First time out rolling the interior flap front the screen window noticed small holes in the window mesh. Had to use Tenacious Tape to keep the bugs out. Contacted Kodiak customer service and got no where. Hence the 3 star rating. Otherwise it would be a 5 star rating. C'mon Kodiak, it's a $700 tent that comes with $7 customer service.

Okay so we bought one smaller 4 person flex bow tent as extra accommodations for two large canvas tents we have on Airbnb. The colemans are great for about a month before they start falling apart. And the flexbow was still in top of the line condition. We kept replacing colemans and our flexbow still held despite the weather. So we made the big decision. No more colemans. We got two flexbows with the windows and a larger size. The 700$ models. Mainly because the zipper gave out and I blame the Airbnb guests who don't know how to preserve a zipper as thy broke all our zippers. When I attempted to contact Kodiak for the first tent zipper I got no response. But we bought them anyways because we put in some heavy duty snaps along the door canvas which eases the stress on the use of the zippers. If the zipper goes you have a problem because of the arch door zip is impossible to find a replacement for much less a tent seamstress to repair. However because of the snaps we really overcame this quandary. The snaps on the bend are the scariest part in installation. So we use the old Kodiak for storage and the new Kodiak with full sized beds and everyone loves them. We don't stress about putting guests into them with high extreme weather anomalies as this tent holds up. The other design which I'm sure makes sense for others but for us it would have been nice to have same side doors as an option. As if you put in a bed on oneside the opposite door is blocked. This is the case really even with cots. The floor is sturdy and easy to clean. All our other canvas tents have Redding from the sand storms and the Kodiak is almost canvas original color except for the paw prints of dogs who had to lay on the tent as we installed the snaps. Water proof as long as your zippers hold. So not having replacement zippers on the list of support items or having a customer service that is responsive was our biggest drawback. But for the money we spent and the weather we face it was still our best long term investment. We love the windows in the new model.

Impressed so far. Set it up in my back yard for practice. Very sturdy materials. Heavy, Not for a back pack unless it's the pack on your mule!
Rained that day and everything stayed dry.
First time set up was a little difficult but watching the you tube videos helped alot. Able to set up by myself in an hour. If my husband had tried to help we would have just ended up arguing! He's a city boy.
White roof is great because it makes everything bright with light inside tent. Strongest flooring I've seen in a tent. Canvas tent is better than those plastic bubble tents. Worth the price for comfort and durability.
Only caution is the walls slope a lot and I hate bending over all the time. So the other reviews suggested the larger 10x14 and I am glad I listened.
Can't wait for our first camping trip this fall.

The best tent I have ever owned look forward to using it for many years to come. Cooler in the summer than a conventional tent. Can't wait for winter.

I have had this tent for a year now and have used it multiple times with my family. I have no regrets getting this tent. It withstood 35 mph winds in Arizona desert and monsoon rain.
I just wish Kodiak offered a 12x16 version to better fit my family needs. With wife and kids it gets a little tight in there and the extra space would be well worth it for a larger family.

I purchased this tent after a campout with some friends. I was very impressed by the design. I love the multiple doors, windows, and built-in awning. The quality of the fabric and zippers is phenomenal. It feels like a well-constructed and extremely durable tent. I have a family of 7 and I am expecting this tent to last our family 20 years and help us make lots of fun memories!

Just got back from using the VX for the first time. It's easy to set up and take down. It packs smaller than my previous tent (Springbar) and I prefer the design on this one. The materials are high quality and every detail was thought out. I love the large end windows. Get this tent!

This tent is sturdy, spacious and extremely user friendly. Used in Montana for fishing/camping. It's very quick and easy to set up and then it is home for a night, a week, a month etc. Paired with a Mr. Buddy Big Heater, it works great in winter conditions as well as summer with the giant windows for maximum air flow.

I haven't actually put it to camping use, but my parents and I set it up on our property when it was very windy. It was nice. Hoping to use it at my deer lease camping soon. Being a lady, I was needing something easy to setup. The 10 x 14 tent is sort of heavy. The poles themselves are heavy than normal tents. It is easy to do and I was able to get it up. Something like this takes setting up several times to get the act in place. But I can honestly say, this tent will last you a life time if properly taken care of. The canvas, floor, stitching is just well made. I've had many different tents in my lifetime growing up. Wished I would have heard of this brand 20 or so years ago. I would recommend this brand of tent.
