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!!
We bought this tent at the end of May for a mid June camping trip. I have wanted one of these tents for years, and now I have one. I seasoned the tent per the instructions. Then the wife and I and our 120 pound lab mix took it for a one night trial run to a local state park here in southern Ohio. Rain was in the forecast so that’s why we went. The day was sunny and very hot and humid, which led to thunderstorms and six hours of steady heavy rain that night. From here on it will probably sound like all the other reviews because this tent is AWSOME. We stayed absolutely dry, no leaks and such a feeling of security in the storm. You can touch the inside of the tent with no wicking, just the best. The next morning we asked the only other family there did they stay dry, “for the most part” they replied. There is no “for the most part” with a kodiak tent, you are DRY. We are looking forward to our trip with our new kodiak tent. We would like it to be sunny and dry the whole time, but with a kodiak tent to get into, who really cares. Thanks for a great product.
As someone who has always hated camping, I was dismayed when my wife arrived home with a new tent for us to use. I immediately searched for the nearest motel 6 to our campground. However, after one night spent in our Kodiak, I never wanted to take it down! Easy to pitch, sturdy enough for any conditions, and oh the comfort! Now I look forward to each time I get to stake in those poles and climb in my Kodiak for a good mountain sleep.
I have extensive camping experience, wilderness camping. I purchased this tent because I cannot do wilderness camping enough anymore, for various reasons. I wanted a luxury tent for car camping and boy I sure got it with the Kodiak 8 X 9. Actually, I am very proud to own this tent! Design, build, materials all top notch. I ordered it on a Wednesday evening and from Utah to Kitchener, ON Canada, 4 days!
We love to camp and have taken this tent all over the country in all kinds of weather. Camped in Florida Keys in November and stayed completely dry when Bahia Honda received 3+" of rain overnight. Tent has also been warm when temps were in 20's at Missouri trout park in March. used a buddy heater intermittently and quality sleeping bag.
