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.

This is a very good quality material tent. It's not nearly as easy to set up as is claimed though, and it takes 2 people to do it. If the material gets wet it will NOT slide on the bows. That's the only "cons" I have...everything else is in the "pro" column. I don't think I've ever had a tent that stood up to the winter weather as well as this one. We had 50 to 60 mile per hour gusts with driving sleet and rain for 4 straight days during our elk hunt, and the Kodiak rocked back and forth, the tarps went flying but the tent never budged.

Everything was there in the package, no problems unpacking it. It took me about half an hour to set it up. Worst part was getting it staked out. And yes you do most definitely have to stake it out before you raise it up. All the parts are very self explanatory after you get it all laid out and very simple to understand. I gave this a 4 because I haven't had it out in the field yet and haven't even waterproofed it. Otherwise this could easily have been a 5.

I've set this tent up in my yard and still haven't "waterproofed" it yet. It took me less than 30 minutes to set it up. The most strenuous part is staking it. And you do definitely want to stake out before you begin raising it. It has good stakes and containers that come with it. I don't know what a couple of other people are talking about when they refer to the "rubberized" floor, I thought it was upper end material myself. Everything rolled up and went into the bags and covers like they should. Appears to be very high quality. I gave it a 4 because I haven't had it out in the field yet during deer or elk season. I'll get back on here after I do that and let you know how that goes.
