    10x14 Flexbow VX Tent

    Posted by Cory Bruce on 2nd Jan 2023

    I can't wait to get out and use this tent. I looked things over once I received everything. It is high quality. Definitely going to stand out in the tent section of any campground. The footprint is huge.

    Looking forward to camping with Kodiak

    Posted by Sean on 27th Dec 2022

    Haven't had a chance to get my Kodiak out to camp yet, but I did set it up and give it a hosing down for the initial "seasoning." Based on what I've seen so far, I think we're really going to love this tent. We are season campers at a renaissance festival in Texas, and our previous tent was a 10x10 nylon tent that wasn't as roomy as we had hoped and which has already needed a couple of patches. We were persuaded by several campground friends to upgrade, and I'm glad we did. Initial impressions: The floor is SUPER heavy duty. I'm told it's the same material used to line in-ground pools. Whether that's true or not, it's a night-and-day difference from nylon tents. The canvas is very sturdy, the zippers are stiff but great, and the mesh is also very sturdy. The stitching is quality all around, even including the bags for the tent and poles. I also like that the doors have velcro patches to close the flap over the zipper. The poles are SOLID. I've gotten so used to the wimpy poles that come with nylon tents, that the heft of these poles was honestly a bit of a surprise, but it was a welcome surprise. When I was a teenager, I was in Scouts and used to camp in old Baker-style tents. The poles and canvas used in the Kodiak absolutely remind me of those old, indestructible Baker tents. Setup was surprisingly easy and intuitive. I did have a brother-in-law (and fellow Kodiak owner) help me with the initial setup as there are a couple of things I would have struggled with if I hadn't known or had help, but the process in general was much easier than some of the nylon dome and cabin tents I've used. I was able to strike and pack the tent by myself in a very reasonable amount of time, so that was nice as well. This tent will be our home away from home for a couple of months out of the year, and I can't wait to get it set up for the upcoming faire season!

    One word: Quality.

    Posted by Jerry G. on 20th Sep 2022

    I recently had to retire my trusty old Cabela's tent and have been searching the market for replacement. I am glad I found this tent. The reviews and videos you can find online are 100% accurate. This tent is high quality. I expect it will have no problem withstanding the elements for years to come. It is heavy, just like they say, so base camping is the only option. The 14x10 is more than enough to support two hunters with full gear for a week + long trip. There is no issue fitting two full size cots and still having room to move around. Also more than enough room for my family of 3 with a queen and a twin air mattress. I had read the walls have a bit more slope on the 14x10 vs. the 10x10, but there is still plenty of headroom on the sides of the tent and I am 6'1". The initial pitch only took me about 15 minutes, and I did it by myself. It is pretty straight forward, and there are great YouTube videos out there that you can educate yourself with. The longest part is taking the time to properly stake the tent out, and after that it pops right up. One of my favorite features is that Kodiak actually provides stakes that will work! (Thank you!) The first thing I've done with tents is throw the stakes out and buy new ones, definitely not the case here. Another awesome feature is the floor. It is thick and should hold up for a long, long time. I didn't purchase the floor liner yet, but I will just to help the life of it. I am also waiting to get the wing vestibule because I've read some varying opinions on adding grommets to the awning, but I think I will ultimately wind up making the purchase. If you're not using the awning it is important to ensure you roll it up properly so it doesn't catch water. The included ground tarp is awesome too. Well done across the board!

    First time setting up

    Posted by Bob on 5th Sep 2022

    I put it up in the back yard to "season" it. It's rained every day since. Going on 5 days with continuous rain in the forecast for the next 7 days. Don't know if a complete saturation is needed, but it's getting it. First week long camp trip scheduled for October. I hope it dries out by then.

    Never going back to nylon

    Posted by Megan E Knight on 19th Aug 2022

    I've been camping in nylon tents for decades. I'm never going back. This tent has so much room, I don't know what to do with it all. The construction is outstanding. I had a small leak at the reinforcement on the back door, but the rain was pouring down in buckets and actually caused flooding in lower areas on site so I'm not really that worried about a handful of tiny drops. Cleaning the tent after living in it for two weeks straight was quick and easy. Definitely go for the vestibule accessory - it was perfect and gave me a dry place to keep my chair, a cool place to store my cooler. I cannot say enough good about this tent!

    Great Purchase

    Posted by The Housemans on 10th Aug 2022

    We purchased this tent back in May as we had many camping trips planned for the year. We live in Michigan and with the chilly nights this tent was amazing. We started out in the Porcupine Mountains. We love how much room there is, hot thick the mil is of hte floor and also the ground tarp was a bonus. Easy set up and easy take down. With the help of a Planar portable diesel heater, we stayed toasty warm in our bed. The hose fit perfectly into the bottom corner of the door. We have since camped all over the Upper Penninsula and this tent has been amazing on every trip. We have ran into rain, winds and scorching sun. Is holding up well and we love it. Best purchase in a tent ever!
