Kodiak Canvas tents are made with a superior, marine-grade, 100% cotton duck, Hydra-ShieldTM canvas. What is Hydra-Shield Canvas? It is a custom woven and treated canvas ideal for the purpose of premium tent making. It is double-fill (two threads twisted together for superior strength, durability, and a very tight weave). It has a silicone, dry-finish treatment that is watertight, breathable, and durable. It also resists mold and mildew.
What are the Benefits?
1) You will stay dry, even in a downpour! It's okay to touch ceiling and inside walls during a rainstorm. This canvas does not leak or wick water.
2) Unlike synthetic fabrics, or canvas with a paraffin or oil-based treatment, our canvas is breathable! This allows water vapor to escape, minimizing condensation, humidity, and mugginess. Simply put, you are more comfortable.
3) Unlike canvas with paraffin or oil-based treatments, you should rarely, if ever have to retreat the canvas. Hydra-Shield's silicone-based treatment is durable and very long-lasting.
4) The canvas is strong and durable. It will hold up to the elements, and long outlive tents made with inferior fabrics.
