    Let's just say this is a quality tent!!! We spent three nights in this beautiful, spacious tent. It is made to last! Sturdy zippers, and a thick floor. Love that it comes with a made-to-fit tarp and organizers! Nice Kodiak!!!

    Posted by Timothy Hanney on 20th Apr 2023

    I have had this tent for almost 4 years now, and I continue to be completely satisfied with it. It's easy to set up and has just the right amount of room for my needs.

    10 X 14 Flex Bow VX

    Posted by Jeff Contini on 2nd Apr 2023

    Coming up on our 3rd season. All reviews I read about Kodiak equipment is spot on. Adding the vestibule grommets to the awning was NO issue. I live in Colorado and took the tent to a canvas shop. They came out to my truck in the parking lot , installed the grommets. Cost me $5.00. The vestibule will block the view out of the front of the tent but during flying snow or rain it is a great addition. I just ordered my floor tarp for even more comfort while in the mountains. I would recommend all Kodiak products for the outdoors

    Best Tent ever!

    Posted by Aaron Hendren on 8th Mar 2023

    So we have had this tent for 5 almost 6 years. I just took it down today to have the first tear fixed. It’s been up at least 2 months a year since new and just came down after being up for 8 solid months. Snow, rain, hail, 70 mph winds! The tear caused by weight of snow pushing pole about 6” into the ground! Totally my fault but will start putting 10” plywood shoe under the pole.

    Best tent

    Posted by Justin on 7th Mar 2023

    This tent is the best. We have had it 2 years now and have camped during stormy weather and it held up great and we stayed perfectly dry. Very well built and worth the money.

    First Time in the field

    Posted by Robert Young on 27th Feb 2023

    My family and I used the 10x14 VX this past weekend and we loved the tent. The quality is top notch. The only "questionable" Feature were the windows/venting during a rain. Somehow in all the research that I did I missed that there were not partial cover for the window screens to utilize during a rain; yet wanting to vent. We did have a rain event; however rather than risking getting the family wet; we went ahead and zipped up the entire window. When seasoning the tent; I sprayed the window screen without the canvas closed and there was some water intrusion. MY concern is the breathability over an entire day or two of rain. The canvas performed well during our field use; however the rain was brief. Either way the unit is very nice. and it did seem to breath well when zipped up to avoid rain intrusion.

    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!
