  1. Perfect for the quick getaway. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Jan 2017

    Love this smaller tent! It's lighter making it more convenient to toss and go for a weekend trip.

    All the same materials and quality of the larger Kodiak Canvas tents we have. The lower profile also makes this a great beach tent, holding up to the wind. And my favorite feature, it still fits my queen size airbed. Thank you Kodiak

  2. Good Tent 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Jan 2017

    So far tent has been good. Have used it in the snow in Nevada an the California desert. There are some areas definitely need improvement. like the pole system. But so far its been holding up well. It is nice an roomy would not recommend it for long snow use because its more for raining with the breathable duck canvas can get pretty chilly in lower Temps. Have had it snow an did pretty well. Also would have liked the ceiling not to be white stains to easily. But overall it has been nice. Just stake in the corners then setup the pole system pretty much done. An some taped seams would have been nice. Definitely a nice canvas 2 person tent. An for the warmer season has alot of ventilation. Just remember to be gentle on the setup want it to last. Plus when it comes to wind this thing doesn't flinch.

  3. Terrific Tent! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Sep 2016

    My first trip with this tent last June, in southern PA, we were hit with the storm that had just flooded West Virginia. During this very violent storm there were a couple of drips from a zipper seam. Other than that this tent rode through one of the worst rainstorms I have ever seen without a hitch!

    It is a roomy and comfortable two person tent that I would recommend you buy instead of the flimsy synthetic fabric so-called tents. One of the best purchases I have ever made!

  5. Best two man tent on the planet! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Jul 2016

    This is the most spacious two man tent I've ever seen or had. It is also the very best quality tent I've ever had. Please read the owners manual before use because there is some very important and good information in it. If you don't read it, you may end up being disappointed in the long run due to your own doing. I have learned every word in the manual and believe this tent will make me a very happy camper for many years to come. Thank you Kodiak Canvas for an amazing product. I will be buying one of the family size tents very soon. This one is for my solo getaways
