This tent (the 9x8) is hands down the best tent for a single person. I am 6'3" and feel that I have ample amounts of room when by myself. It fits my XL Cot, my buddy heater, a small table, a suitcase/duffle bag, and trash bag for dirty clothes and I don't feel cramped whatsoever. I can also store stuff under the cot. I used it for my hunt camp in December 2020 and my that hunt was 12 days long and I stayed in this tent for all 12 days. It snowed about 2 inches on one day and then rained for two days after that and that rain turned to ice real quick. The tent held up amazingly well. No leaks, no crumbling under the weight of the snow and ice, no issues whatsoever. I have had probably 12 different tents over the last 20 years and this one is by far my favorite. This tent is heavy. I would only use it as a basecamp and keep my bivy/backpacking tent for mobile operations. I am going to buy the 10x14 size for when I take my wife and dogs on camp trips. These tents are worth every penny for sure.
Love the Kodiak products, long lasting, great service!
I have to start by saying this is an awesome car camping tent. It satisfies everything my wife wanted. Two cots fit nicely... check. We can stand up... check. Easy to put up and take down...check. Stands up to wicked rain storms... check. If I could do it again I would purchase the 10x10. Having two cots in the tent either puts them at separate ends of the tent or someone is boxed in with little room to get up without waking up the other person (we like to sleep side by side). Setting up the tent takes a while the first time that you do it. Once you figure it out then you think “I get it... that is pretty cool”. It really is easy. This isn’t a good tent for a location where you can’t stake it down (where it is really rocky or sandy). I took it out last week and it took a:very long time to get the stakes in the ground because of rocks. I can live with that but it would be nice to have a solution to make it free standing.
I needed to get a tent for a week long family camping activity and I purchased this one. I debated buying the 9x8 or the 10x10 and went with the smaller of the two. It holds two cots well with about three feet in the middle but a 10 foot width would have provided enough space for the cots to not overlap at all with the doors. The tent is amazing. Easy to setup, easier to take down and unbelievable in a storm. We had a violent thunderstorm with heavy wind for several hours one night and we didn't have any water in the tent. That is the best possible endorsement that I could give. The camping trip was a first for my wife and she was hooked. She was comfortable, warm and dry and has been asking about our next camping trip since leaving the campsite. I would say that is also a pretty good endorsement.
Just got the flexbow and have been out a couple of nights during a very warm time in the woods. The quality of this tent if off the charts, nice sewing, outstanding materials. Really, really happy as is my wife, we are going to use this for our retirement, extended car camping for the two of us and it's perfect, lots of room. Really enjoyed sitting on the "porch" during this hot camp trip, also the tent was much cooler and more pleasant than a nylon tent. Lastly just wanted to give you the weight breakdown between the tent in it's sack: 28 lbs and the poles/stakes in it's sack: 26 lbs. Thus really easy to carry even for an older guy like me. Thank you Kodiak!!
I LOVE this tent. I also have the Kodiak truck tent that I use if Im going to the beach or sharing a site with my RV friends. This tent allows me to really glamp it up. I like comfort when I camp. I’m 67 and female so pounding in the stakes made me want to have a beer every couple of stakes. However, YouTube turned me on to using lag bolts instead of stakes. I got 10” LBs with washers zipped tied into place and use my impact drill to put them in and take them out. The galvanized bolts aren’t cheap but totally worth the ease of setup and take down
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.
