Things our customers have said about us.
"I am a Scoutmaster for Troop 151 in Boise, ID. As a long time scouter and outdoors-man, I’m a big believer in quality gear! This last weekend, on our scout Klondike camp, was a testament to the need need of that. It was predicted to snow almost 20 inches in 48 hours, but the temperature was going to be around 32 degrees. So I was a bit concerned about rain instead of snow. I believe I may have jinxed us… it rained and rained and then rained some more. Our troop has one older Kodiak Canvas tent and then a couple of… well the other brands. Guess which scouts stayed dry and which ones got soaked to the bone? As near as I can tell this tent has seen at least 5 years of scouting use and in spite of its age, it still held up to the elements!"
-Tory H. (Boise, ID) Feb. 2017
"These tents are extremely high quality. The company is honest and easy to work with. The tents have every feature you could imagine. I have used most of their products. They will stand up in extreme wind when no other tents will. They stay dry in the hardest downpours. We have four that the Scouts have used for seven years and they keep going. I like the 10X10 because I can stand up and the VX model has ventilation on all four sides for the hot summers. The SWAG bag is nice and small for just one person. The foam pad smooths any rocks that might be underneath. Great product. Good people"
-Jeff M. (West Jordan, UT) Feb. 2017
"Recently purchased a 10 x 14 flex-bow and a 10 x 14 ground cloth. The tent is an unbelievable value for the money. The materials and workmanship are outstanding. I am 66 yrs old and have two hip replacements and a reconstructed knee and had no trouble putting the tent up by myself. I am more than satisfied and would recommend this tent to anyone looking for a high quality roomy tent."
-Barry S. (Satellite Beach, FL) Dec. 2016
"I just recently ordered the Grand Cabin Tent. The pictures on the website do not even come close to doing this tent justice. I set it up in my back yard to check it out and it is amazing. There is plenty of space on the inside with storage pouches everywhere. It breaths quite well to keep the heat off, outside temp was 100 that day and we kept the windows shut. At night, it was quite comfortable in the tent as well and I am sure it can hold heat in the colder weather with no problems. Although some of the poles were damaged in the shipping process which were then very quickly replaced thanks to Jon, this tent was incredibly easy to set up and then take down and put away. You would think that with a tent that big (26x8 with a 12x8 attached canopy) there would be some difficulty but there was none at all. Even better is this tent is tall. I stand over 6' and the doors and the ceiling are well above me from one end of the tent to the other so no ducking down for head clearance. I go camping multiple times a year and in all weather conditions. I have no doubt that this tent will have any problems at all. If you need a spacious tent for you and the family or buddies, this is the perfect tent!"
-David L. (Peoria, AZ) Oct. 2016
"Big shout out to Kodiak Canvas! Had a few buddies buy the Deluxe Cabin Tent and bring it on a hunting trip in January for AZ archery deer. Had some cold crappy weather and these tents performed flawlessly! Very roomy and can fit two cots with a ton of gear comfortably! Best investment I've made recently by far! Quality and excellent customer service! "
-Joe B. (Prescott, AZ) Sept. 2016
"This is my second year using your 10x10 Deluxe. We have used the tent from sea to sea. Our 1st year we used the tent from North Carolina/WV/Virginia, to the Rockies, the Tetons, the Sawtooths, to the Oregon Coast, Nevada desert than back to a NC. Our 2nd year took us to the Florida Pan Handle, the Great Smokies and a 60 day trip through the Atlantic Providences above the 52 parallel in Labrador/Newfoundland of CANADA. The tent has kept us cool, warm and dry in every weather condition imaginable. This is one of the best products I've every purchased for quality and performance. Thank you for making such a great product, keep up the great work. "
-Denis H. (Southport, NC) Sept. 2016
"I bought the 10x14 tent last year (2015) for 2nd rifle elk season. We Hunted west of Olathe,CO on divide road near the summit, we camped between 8500-9000ft. In 11 days we had 6 days of rain/sleet/snow and thunderstorms thrown at us. It was brutal Weather. I want to say the Kodiak tent was amazing. It stayed dry the entire time. I think the inside of my tent was the only dry spot on the mountain. I would guess winds hit 60 mph during nightly thunderstorms and not a drop of water in this tent. I was truly amazed it held up to all nature had throw at us. Thank you for building an incredibly strong, dry, warm tent. "
-Brian C. (San Antonio, TX) July 2016
"I am a new customer who recently purchased your 1 man swag. It held up well in the mountains during a long rain. One of my latest inventions is a poor man's overland set up. I did this for a solo wilderness trip I took last week in the Sangre De Cristo mountains. I thought I would share in case anyone is interested in a similar set up. The Kodiak Canvas Swag tent fit perfectly on my Gobi rack. My 4WD took me to 13K elevation and some beautiful places in the wilderness. Maybe there are others who might benefit from a similar set up. Just wanted you to hear from a happy customer. Cheers!"
-Todd C. (Texas) July 2016
"I have purchased a 10x10 and a 10x14 tent. There is no way I can express how happy I have been with these tents. We have used them in POURING rain and 40 MPH winds. They have been flawless. Go ahead and buy the bigger size and the deluxe model. I have absolutely no complaints about them. Wonderful to see a product meet or exceed their claims. Keep up the good work."
-William B. (Crossville, AL) June 2016
“A couple of pictures of the tents in Chile. It's a really nice product you are selling. The tents were set up for 4 month, they went through rain, wind, sun and a lot of humidity and they ended up very well.”
-Alex T. Apr. 2016
“I spent the last 4 out of the 5 months camping in my 9x8 Kodiak Canvas tent. The first two months (October and November) in the Pacific Northwest, and the last two months (January and February) on the Baja peninsula in Mexico. Oregon can get pretty wet around that time of year and this last year was no different. The tent went through two storms that received several days of on-and-off rain, some of which being of the torrential down pour kind. The tent did great. No water leaked through.
South of the boarder there is a thing called "Nortes" which refer to the offshore winds blowing out of the north. The Nortes blow hard. Really hard. The tent never faltered.
Worth every penny. Highly recommended.”
-Happy Customer (Los Angeles, CA) Apr. 2016
"We purchased this tent for a scout troop and we love the Kodiak Canvas tents. They are built rugged and very reliable. I love the bag this one comes in. Awesome tent! I highly recommend Kodiak Canvas tents to anyone who wants one. Purchased 6014 tent from authorized Kodiak Canvas dealer, Competitive Edge Products, Inc. http://www.competitiveedgeproducts.com"
-Jason H. (Ogden, Utah) Jan. 2016
"When I left one of my poles in the desert this past year, I thought for sure I was going to need to find parts on my own through CL or Ebay. I was ecstatic to find that Kodiak not only provides replacement poles, but they are reasonably priced as well! The pole I received is a direct replacement, no worry and no hassle!
Thanks for making a quality product and for offering replacement parts. I'm continually satisfied with my Kodiak Canvas tent and the customer service I receive from the company."
-Erin C. (Seattle, WA) June 2015
"I purchased your 12x9 Cabin Tent with canopy and screen a couple of years ago and have been very happy. My wife and I just got back from two weeks in U.P. of Michigan just off the coast of Lake Superior. We had two nights with reported gail force winds, and one of those nights over two inches of rain. The campground
had 16 sights and everyone had a tent on it the first night. We were the only ones there on the second. Quite a tent you have built. It stood like a rock in 50ish mph winds and didn't get a drop of water with 2 plus inches of rain in an evening."
-Steve and Patty S. (Brighton, MI) Sept. 2014
"This is my covered wagon, a Dodge Ram 1500. The Kodiak Canvas truck tent didn’t flap in 70mph winds or leak a drop in any rain or snow storm. The spacious interior is lined with a BedRug which provides both padding and insulation and adds a little more homeyness (compliments the tent nicely). Plenty of room to stand up, got the portable loo in case I don’t wanna venture outside to do my business (rain, cold, snow in the middle of the night, or have a lady along who wants privacy). I keep an ice chest in there for snacks and drinks and my closed foam mat is plenty thick in case my back is wore out after a day in the field. When I’m camping in the wagon, I can indulge myself with a big sleeping bag and pillow…a nice luxury you sacrifice when backpacking with a mummy sack. The fine mesh bug screen keeps everything out and provides plenty of air flow and shade for a mid-afternoon siesta. The heavy canvas can actually get too warm if ya don’t unzip some of the windows, especially with the door buttoned up. Those cheap nylon truck tents flap, leak and don’t hold heat at all. I have camped in remote locations throughout the west…from 0 degree temps during very wet weather (during waterfowl season) to 100+ degree desert locations (during archery elk season) and everything in between….this Kodiak Truck Tent is comfortable and still looks brand new after years of use and abuse. I prefer to buy quality once…after reviewing all the other truck tents on the market, I selected Kodiak Canvas. No regrets. It’s the best. Five of my buddies have bought Kodiak tents since checking out mine. This tent packs down to nothing so I take it on long trips when I will be driving through remote areas as an emergency shelter, in case I break down or get stuck in the snow someplace without cellular service. Takes me 10-12 minutes to put up, half that to pull down. Thanks Kodiak! I got more than my money’s worth."
-Bruce C. (San Clement, CA) Oct. 2013
"Hello, after reading hundreds of reviews, I finally broke down and spent the money. I couldn't be happier. I've never taken the time to give a review before on anything. I purchased the Kodiak 10x10 Flex-bow canvas tent. I'm 6'4" and like my comfort. So, when we booked our Wyoming antelope hunt, a good tent was top priority. Everyone said "way to heavy, way too tall" for Wyoming. This tent is all there!! No other way to say it. Just buy it. 4 days of sustained winds from 10-30 mph with gusts up to 60 mph. This tent took it all and asked for more. We were all Shocked. Without a doubt I bought the right tent. Ended up with one bent sun shade tent pole and that's it. The walls were flexing and everything in camp was tied down and this tent was left standing without a single rip. Unbelievable!! Everyone in camp is a believer now! Thanks Kodiak."
-John L. (Bartlesvil, OK) Oct. 2013
"I've just finished my first camping trip with my new cabin tent (the one with the attached porch) and I just wanted to write and say how happy I am with your product. The weather was rainy for the entire trip, but my family stayed warm and dry. We were the envy of the campground and had to start giving "tours" of our tent before we even had it completely set up. It’s great to find a company that still cares enough to make a quality product. Thanks Kodiak!"
-Scott H. (Gray, TN) Oct. 2013
"On a camping trip to Lake Powell this summer we had strong winds through the night. Our family of six was safe and secure inside our Kodiak Canvas tent. Our shade awning, the mangled mess shown in the front of the photo, did not fare as well. Thanks Kodiak for making rugged tents that can stand up to Mother Nature. I would never camp in anything but a Kodiak Canvas tent."
-Merrilee B. (Layton, UT) Aug. 2012
“Just came back from my first camping trip with my new 10x14 flex-bow tent at Grandfather Mountain, N.C. Four days of mostly heavy fog, rain, extremely heavy downpours broken by only a few hours of sun all weekend. While some people camping near me were soaked inside their tent, I was completely dry and comfortable. No rain fly, no tarp over the tent.....Just the tent. This tent is absolutely amazing! I'm sure I'll get years of use out of it. Thank you so much.”
-Keith (Ellabell, GA) Jul. 2012
“We purchased a 10x14 Kodiak Canvas Flex-bow Tent earlier this summer and I must tell you, in 40yrs of camping, this is the best tent I have owned. Many years ago we owned a Coleman Canvas tent, but with 11+ poles to set up, it took forever. My Kodiak takes 10-minutes from bag to living. With my son away at college, it’s just my wife, dog and I, and there is so much room, it is like taking a full bedroom. Love-it! I originally had reservations of spending this much money on a tent. But not now, I am very pleased with this tent purchase.”
-Gary P. (Coto de Caza, CA) Oct. 2011
“Just wanted to say that we just bought the canvas truck tent for our truck and took it on our elk hunt. We live in Oregon and if you didn't know it rains here! So we didn't get an elk but sure loved our tent. It rained on us and we stayed dry and cozy! The other great thing was that when we got to our spot to hunt. We didn’t have to and find a place to put a tent. Not having to worry about finding level ground or worry about a rock in your back! Just park the truck on a level area or make it level and set it up. The other hunters that came by us made comments to how nice it was. Thanks for making a great product. Oh and my better half wanted make sure you know she is a seamstress and noticed the great craftsmanship. Thanks again.”
-Floyd E. (Salem, OR) Sept. 2011
“My Flex-Bow 6051 canvas tent is awesome!!! I took it to Burning Man this year and despite some windy and very dusty days, I stayed comfortable and dust free. Even in a dust storm, I was able to set up my tent with little trouble. I’m so pleased with the quality and craftsmanship of these tents. Best tent I have ever owned!”
-Lisa R. (Marysville, WA) Sept. 2011
“We just wanted to say how much we love our canvas tent! We have owned the tent for 2 years now, and we have never had a better one. When camping with a group, we have the only tent that survives the wind and rain. Thank you!!”
-Lydia (Colorado) Sept. 2011
“I just wanted to say thank you for the best tent I have ever purchased. I bought the 12x9 cabin tent with the screened in awing from Cabela's and all I can say is wow my family and I love it. This is the first canvas tent I have owned, I am now a loyal Kodiak customer. We took camping the weekend after it was delivered we where the envy of those around us love the tent will never go back to a inferior tent I'm sold thanks for a outstanding product. I am going to order the canvas wall for my awning to take a winter camping trip with my husky this year I am really excited. Once again thanks for a great product quality craftsmanship is really hard to find anymore but you all obviously take great pride in what you do.”
-Jason C. (Delaware, OH) Jul. 2011
“Kodiak Tents Just wanted to say that I got to try my new truck tent out this weekend. I was planning on some rough weather that evening but nothing like what actually occurred. It was a torrential pour all night, and I thought, here is going to be the ultimate test to see if this tent is as it claims. I can ecstatically say I was kept totally dry all night long and I have never had such a good time camping in rain. It never felt stuffy or hot and just because of the storm I checked for leaks many times through the night expecting something to start dripping or to feel condensation building on the inside. I never felt either. Thank you for making such and outstanding product! I will never go back to a plastic tent.”
-Adam U. (Oklahoma City, OK) May 2011
“First off, thanks for designing such a great tent. We used our new deluxe 10'X14' model 6014 tent for the first time this past weekend and loved everything about it including the quality, looks, height, no smells and ease to work with. Just the absolute best tent out there. Truthfully, it was the continuous stream of raving comments I read on numerous sites that made me finally pull the trigger on buying the Kodiak tent. Although I have health issues, I think it's still important to find ways to continually connect with the kids and my grandson so setting up any tent was one of my major concerns. Through the years, we have owned two pop-ups and a 30' trailer and I just didn't feel like wrestling anymore with towing them, connecting hoses, setting leveling jacks and telling myself we're having fun. With the Kodiak tent, we had it fully set up in a matter of minutes complete with two queen size air mattresses and plenty of room for the additional two twin mattresses we also brought. With such a high ceiling we never felt confined or unsteady when we moved around. My daughter who originally questioned going with us said to be sure to count her in on our next camp-out. Thanks for not cutting any corners when you designed it.”
-Harold B. (Waldorf, MD) Mar. 2011
“I bought a #6014 10x14 at Cabelas this past fall. I had an REI Kingdom which I returned after one time, then I had a LL Bean 10x10 Woodlands tent. Both are considered fine tents, but I can tell you from using all three that your Kodiak Canvas stands alone. It's a lot of tent for the money...You have a loyal following who will pay more money for the tent as long as you keep the same great quality. Thanks for such a great tent - Camping in the Kodiak Canvas gives me peace of mind with my family inside, when the weather gets bad.”
-Dan F. (Minnesota) Dec. 2010
“I want to thank you for what I feel is the greatest tent ever made. My wife and I looked all last winter for a tent so our family could start enjoying the outdoors more. After looking at what we thought was every family tent made, and reading hundreds of testimonials your tent stood out among the rest. Had hard rain the first night camping, and just what we hope--perfectly dry. The set up of our new 10x14 Flex-Bow was awesome. I did it by myself the first time in 10 min. (and that’s taking it out of the box and reading the directions). The second time, when camping, took 5 min. My 3 boys, my wife, and I want to thank you for what we think was a great year of camping. We are going camping this fall I'm sure we'll have a great time thanks to your tent. THANK YOU.”
-Robert V. (Buchanan, MI) Sept. 2010
“We had a group of about 460 youth and leaders who were on a three-day Pioneer Trek from June 10-12. The first night included a typical Wyoming storm of torrential rain and 50-60 mile per hour winds. Most of the leaders in our group took small dome tents that were obliterated by the storm. Fiberglass and aluminum tent poles snapped from the power of the wind. Dozens of tents from the entire group were destroyed. Well over 100 persons were displaced and were sleeping in busses and a local barn. I am pleased to report there were no problems with any of our Kodiak tents. They withstood the pounding rain and wind with no damage to the tents or occupants gear. They remained water tight even in the driving rain. Thank you for building such a quality product.”
-Daryl W. (Syracuse, UT) June 2010
“I've spent about 3 1/2 to 4 months living in my 6010 tent over the past 2 years, and I LOVE it. It's been to Burning Man, Coachella and Lightning in a Bottle for extended, working, camping experiences and several smaller trips. I've encouraged other people to buy a Kodiak, and everybody who has done so is happy. I work with an LA based production company, and at least 5 of our crew have a Kodiak. We create large scale installations for music festivals and we hold our own Festival (Lightning in a Bottle), once a year. We generally camp for 1-2 weeks at a time for each event, so our tents get pretty well lived in. I LOVE MY TENT!”
-Hilary S. (Westen USA) June 2010
“I'm familiar with the Flex-Bow concept and decided to get the 10X10 model. Just got back from our annual Retired TX game warden get-together. A more critical audience would be hard pressed to find. They were impressed with the quality of a REAL canvas tent (quite a few of us still use wall tents) with the easy setup advantage for one person. Other remarks included the pleasant colors used (green and buff). Driving 18 stakes is the hardest part for my late 60s bod, the rest is a cinch. With old Coleman lanterns at night, had quite a few gather around for good conversation which because of your canvas tent, usually centered around old canvas tents and hunting trips w/horses and mules. Very secure tent as we had some strong spring winds and light rain, no problem. Looking forward to many more get-togethers with this tent which seems to be a drawing card in groups.”
-Ron B. (Comfort, TX) Apr. 2010
“Thanks for the help choosing my tent. I got the 10 x 14 flex bow. It’s great!!!!! I thought you might want to share some information with other customers; I camped in cold to cool weather 40 deg. days and nights in the 20-36 range. I did notice that after the first good rain storm it allowed less air threw the canvas so I opened the top vents a little for fresh air. thanks again for the help, and the best tent I have ever owned (I have had somewhere around 8 tents in my time.)”
-George H. (Wilmington, IL) Dec. 2009
“Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!! Just back from opening weekend here in central Washington and still dry thanks to my new 10 X 14 FlexBow. Two inches of rain in one hour and not a drop inside. It's unbelievable and assuring that one can still buy a product that performs as advertised. This is one fine tent. Thanks again.”
-Steve C. (Central Washington) Oct. 2009
“We own two Kodiak Canvas tents which we lived in for most of the summer last year while we were building our home in the mountains of Utah. They were both great! They were sturdy, comfortable, had wonderful hardware. We anticipate these tents being a great investment for our family for years to come!”
-Travis H. (Brighton, UT) June 2008
“We absolutely LOVE your tent! It is very well thought-out and constructed. I've guided in AZ for 20 years and have always wondered why someone didn't make a tent like yours. Thanks again for such a fine product.
-Gary F. (New River, AZ) Nov. 2007
“On my first trip out with my new Kodiak Canvas tent, I did not arrive at my campsite, in the Great Smokey Mountains National Park, until 11:00 at night. I can't tell you how glad I was for the easy to assemble design. You only have to stake it out and put up the three supports. It was a far cry from some of the complicated to assemble tents I have owned in the past.”
