Kodiak | SKU: B26173
California residents see Prop 65 WARNINGS
This is absolutely the best tent me and my wife have ever purchased, we also have the wall kit for the awning and highly recommend the wall kit. Wall kit is not water proof but listened to Kodiak and used the correct spray for watproofing and it has shed water like crazy for years. We are 60 and 61 and have no problems setting it up for our adventures.
I purchased this fine tent as a replacement . I sadly lost my last 6133 in the September 3rd , Border 32 wildfire in San Diego county . My original was the best I ever had , sturdy , stable and rugged. While Kodiak offers many styles , THIS tent has 2 doors , a must have . Due to the wildfire , my economic decision is to live in this tent for one year .. it can take it !
I'll be 70 soon , Owned this fine wall tent for quite a few years. 2 twin beds with an isle between and a table/nightstand at the back wall.. a great setup ! The deluxe awning (permanently attached but pocket packed/deployable) makes this a no-brainer for the additional wall kit . Very stout construction but not bulky like an old mil-spec canvas . Alas , my home and this fine tool were taken by wildfire in Rural San Diego county on September 3rd (Border 23 fire) along with my age appropriate Glamping necessities and I am now ordering the same Kodiak model.. I have decided to "tent it" for one year on my property while I collect my thoughts .. why THIS TENT over the more spacious 12 x 12 model ? The second door and the convenient cord/cable/hose passthrough ! Exact fitting , foldable outdoor RV "carpets" can be found for both the tent and awning room floors . If needed I'll install a stove pipe jack in the vestibule roof . Like others I fretted over the Chinese manufacturer BUT the positive reviews were many .. this product is clearly the exception and highly recommended by me . -- Mark Sommers in Potrero 91963
Fantastic tent! Purchased at a local retailer and couldn't be happier. Feels much more like a room at a campsite than a TENT! We purchased the awning enclosure as well as the base tarp and floor cover for inside. I'm not as impressed with the interior floor covering. While it is canvas and has the same water repelling treatment as the rest of the tent - it's the same color as the ceiling. I think it would be much better if this were a darker canvas. It also didn't hold the same water repelling ability where we walked on it after our first outings. Easier to set up than expected after the first try, my five-year-old and I set it up together at Yellowstone last week in about 20 minutes. If you're looking for a quality tent and have the room to carry this - it's great!
This tent is, for the most part, incredibly well built and reliable. It has held up marvellously in the Colorado highlands against high wind, intense rain, and even some snow. Unfortunately, the door zippers are absolute garbage. We followed the instructions to the letter, cleaned them regularly, and even applied some zipper lubricant to keep things moving. The front door has been non functional for months, and the awning door followed shortly thereafter, leaving us with no working doors. A tent isn't good for much without doors, and support took two weeks to reply to me and, to date since my last response, has left me hanging for nearly two weeks again. After this experience, I'd be hard pressed to ever buy a kodiak tent again, nor recommend one to anyone who needs a heavy duty tent for long stretches. This is a casual investment at best, and far too expensive for that, unless you know how to replace your own zippers. *** Zach Thanks for your honest review. Sorry to hear about the zipper trouble. As per the owners manual, please do not apply lubricant to the zippers. This usually acts as a dust magnet and causes the zippers to wear quicker. Also when you zip doors hold them so zippers operate smooth rather than grinding. This will prolong zipper life. We use top of the line zippers that perform very well with very few complaints. Reach out to customer service and let's see if we can get you taken care of.
Nicest tent i purchased.. could use some more guy lines for the awning..
Best camping tent !
Awesome tent, easy to assemble just have to make sure to stake it all down first, we have 2 disco bed bunk beds that fit perfect inside with plenty of room for our Jackery, only draw back is of course it’s really heavy but that’s what I was expecting with this type of quality tent
This tent is epic, the poles are 1" thick and very sturdy. The canvas and seams were waterproof out of the box, we didn't soak it before we brought it out because it was too wet to store again before we needed it for camp. We (my wife and I) set it up at camp in the rain (very easy with 2 people if you stretch and stake the floor properly). It held a queen size cot and air mattress with room for a dog bed and a twin size cot (tons of storage under cot or along sides of tent. The awning was a terrific addition, we went without the walls and wish we just made the purchase. There are plenty of places to hang items such as towels and pocket organizers. A dog peed on the side of it on day 3 of camp, luckily it mostly beaded up on the canvas (poured a bottle of water on it to wash it off the canvas and all was well). As for our gripes, we wish that there was a screen on the main door that was sewn in as a window that can be open when the door is closed. The other small gripe is the side awning doesn't fasten to the tent at the bottom (it has two side zippers that run from top to bottom and it just sits over the large screen window). This allowed a few camp crawlers to make their appearance throughout our camping experience. After being in this tent for four rainy and windy days, I can comfortably say that this is an incredible purchase. Only regret I have is not being able to wait for the 10x10 cabin to come back into stock. Oh one more thing, buy a buddy heater for the tent...you won't regret it (make sure you ventilate).
