this tent is amazing! I can't wait to try it in cooler temperatures.
After weeks of research for new tent I don’t have to fold my 6’1” frame to get in and out of on family camping trips, I decided on Kodiak 9x8 tent. Customer Service and Sales answered all my questions, did not rush the process, and got my tent sent out even after the 11:00am cut off for deliveries on that day. Set up does take a bit longer the first time when preparing to season the tent. But I am sure set will be a breeze when I actually get to use it on a couple of big camping trips this summer. I’ll write another review then.
I am loving my new 9 x 8 flex bow tent. I waited for 2 years to be able to get this tent. For all of you ladies who may have some physical limitations, I would not stress too much about being able to set this tent up by yourself. I am 61 and 5' 3 and I have had 5 shoulder surgeries and I was still able.to.set.this up by myself. Granted I have camped for years and spent 20 years in the Army. Seriously, the 14 stakes took the most time. Once that was done, the set up took about 10-15 min tops. Utube videos help if you are unsure about the setup but it also helps to lay everything out first. I put my tent up at the house since I needed to season it and because of covid the campgrounds are closed. I won't be worrying about our monsoon season starting next month. The tent was up and 2 days in a row we had steady 25-30 mph winds with gusts between 45-50mph. I purposely went inside to see how it would handle the winds and it came through with flying colors. Needless to say I am extremely pleased with my tent. A word to you ladies; the stakes come in a smaller second bag that goes within the pole bag. I will separate those two bags as the stakes are steel and 16, 12 inch stakes are fairly heavy. The tent felt a.lot lighter because of the weight of the stakes and the poles. Another hint; fully extend the side poles all the way up before setting them in place. It's much harder to try to increase the height once the tent is up. I had no problem setting up the height of the tent because of the side poles. Since you do not need a rain fly like most backpacking tents, this tent was a lot easier to set up. As I said before the majority of the time I spent was pounding in the stakes. I am looking forward to stress free camping and a dry tent even during our monsoon season. Thank you Kodiak for an awesome tent. A few things I would like to.see for this tent are a vestibule like the 10x10 has a and a gear net that fits this tent. The organizers are great, but I normally have the hammock type of set up so I can store my down jacket, tablet, and flashlights in that hammock. Still the organizers are a nice touch.
Wonderful. Fast shipping - ordered on a Sunday, arrived Tuesday morning.
Love this tent. I have owned other canvas tents but the kodiak 9x8 is now my favorite especially for boat camping. It stashes well in one of the lockers because of its compact size. This thing has withstood some really nasty storms that have popped up on the great lakes where I camp the most. I have always felt comfortable in this. The only thing I wish they offered was the wing vestibule for this size. Other than that I have nothing but praise for this tent.
I've used this tent for several years now in every kind of weather from hot sun to rain, hail and snow and it has never failed me. Everybody who sees it is impressed including a nosy game warden that went through my camp while I was away. My only criticism would be the awning that will collect a shallow pool of water or snow. It needs some kind of peak to shed precipitation.
Thanks for your review Brad. Regarding water pooling on the awing, you just need to lower one corner by slanting the awing pole. That will allow water to run off. When it sunny you can extend up for extra space underneath.
Awesome Tent! Camped in it 100+ nights (~26 trips) since last year at elevations from 500’ desert to 9000’ mountain forests in AZ. Mostly nice weather from 90 deg. high to 35 deg. low but hit by monsoon rain/wind, hail, sand and water flow under tent. I disperse camp from my car on various surface types- no nice paid campground sites.
No damage, failures, repairs or weak spots anywhere. All components, ground tarp & seams are heavy duty that should last hundreds of nights camping. No brainer purchase for years of hassle-free outdoor life.
Previously had 2-$100 dome tents- zippers started breaking at ~35 nights. Kodiak zippers are heavy duty but when needed due to an uneven tent surface and past experience, I try to relieve stress while zipping by pulling down on the corners of the tent a bit or grabbing both the inside & outside zipper pulls. Great zippers.
Having a stand-up tent w/ extra space & storage hang racks is fantastic. Set up & take down is quick & easy. Staking takes the most time. Large windows/doors provide great views & ventilation. It stays clean, doesn’t stain and dirt just brushes off. Customer Service is great too!
I could not be more pleased with my Kodiak tent! I bought it brand new to use for Burning Man this year and not only did it stand the test of wind, but far less dust got in vs. other tents I saw. It was perfect for me as a solo camper - space for a twin or double mattress plus all my luggage. You can stand up in it, organize your things with the included hanging units and zip open the doors when you need some fresh air. Can't recommend this tent enough... Thank you!!
I could have just moved into this tent instead of renting another apartment. Obviously there’s no plumbing or central air but it’s that big and that solid. I am 100% satisfied with this product, it’s an amazing piece of equipment that has proven itself ready to provide me with a portable safe-space, shelter, mini-home for the rest of my life! It’s amazjng!!
