Whether you’re headed to the campground with your family, or elk camp with your hunting buddies, this rugged, all-season tent is well suited for the occasion. Made with premium grade, Hydra-Shield, 100% cotton duck canvas. The tight weave and silicone finish make the canvas watertight yet breathable, minimizing condensation and mugginess. Go ahead and touch the inside walls during a downpour—this canvas will not wick water. The Flex-Bow frame has tempered, spring steel rods that keep the tent taut, and robust 1-inch steel tube poles that will hold up to fierce winds. The floor material is a puncture resistant, 13.5 oz vinyl with welded seams, that keeps water out. Easy, one-person setup takes only a few minutes after you have it staked out. The steep walls and 6’1” high ceiling provide a roomy interior with stand-up, walk-around comfort. Large front and back doors with top rated #10 YKK zippers give convenient access. Four windows, and two vents allow ample air flow. Windows and vents have no-see-um screen mesh, keeping out the smallest bugs. A customizable gear organizer system offers plenty of places to stow gear. A large awning provides shade and a covered entry. Sturdy storage bags and hefty 12-inch steel stakes are included.
Whether you're heading to the campground with the family or the elk camp with your hunting buddies, the rugged, all-season Kodiak Canvas Flex-Bow four-person tent is well suited to the occasion. The Flex-Bow tent is made of a superior, marine-grade, 100-percent cotton duck Hydra-Shield canvas. The custom-woven, treated canvas is ideal for tents, as the double-fill design is strong and durable, while the silicone, dry-finish treatment is watertight, breathable, and durable. As a result, campers will stay comfortable and dry even in a downpour. Unlike synthetic fabrics or canvas with a paraffin- or oil-based treatment, Kodiak's canvas allows water vapor to escape, minimizing condensation, humidity, and mugginess. Plus, you'll rarely--if ever--have to retreat Kodiak canvas.
The Flex-Bow frame is every bit as strong, with 1-inch galvanized steel tubing and 3/8-inch Flex-Bow spring steel rods keeping the tent taut at all times. To further improve ventilation, the tent includes two funnel-flow vents that circulate air and assist with temperature management. And campers won't feel claustrophobic thanks to the tent's spacious 6-foot 1-inch ceiling height, two large D-shaped doors (front and back), and four large windows, all covered with no-see-um mesh. Other details include a 13.5-ounce, polyester-reinforced vinyl floor; a large 70-by-57-inch awning; customizable organizer pockets; and a handy zippered storage bag. The Flex-Bow, which sets up easily with one person, is designed for year-round use, but isn't suitable for extreme winter mountaineering or heavy snow accumulations.
The Flex-Bow's spacious footprint sleeps up to 4 people.

This tent is easy to put up with just one person. Nailing in the 16 or so large stakes is the longest/hardest part. Raising the tent is easy as long as you leave the doors open while doing so. Plenty of head space for me and I'm nearly 6'.
We seasoned the tent as directed (wetted it with garden hose and then it dry in the sun). We have had it in the rain without any leakage. The only issue in the rain is the front awning/shade. It will fill up with water unless you have one corner sloped down (easiest is to just to omit the pole on one corner and tie it down with the rope).
My only regret is perhaps not getting the llarger 10x10 tent. I was worried about carrying all the weight, but the poles and canvas are each in separate bags and are quite manageable by themselves. However, I like this smaller one so much it might be nice to have both.
This tent is such a good investment. Perfect luxury for one and cozy comfort for two people. The first thing I noticed was the high quality stitching and construction, and the quality of the materials. I used to be a fashion designer, so I'm very critical about textiles, sustainability, and construction methods. No complaints here! The zippers feel sturdy (although the zippers themselves are nothing special so I'm still gentle when tugging on them, a good rule for zippers in general), and the canvas is thick and top notch, which generally signals better environmental impact. The company claims their tents are responsibly made with fair labor in China using USA grown cotton.
Especially awesome for summer camping, since the canvas breathes and doesn't lock heat inside like nylon does. You'll still want to leave a vent open for air passage on hot days, and pitching it under shade is always a good idea (it's an amazing tent but, I mean, it's not magic). If you're desert/west coast camping, it's also great for retaining heat when the temperature drops at night.
The only challenge is transportation, as it's extremely heavy and packs down to be pretty big, especially if you plan to fly with it. You'll need to check the poles and the tent itself separately to meet the weight limitation. Luckily, the poles come with their own canvas bag so you can carry them separately without hassle.
If you're thinking about buying this tent, you should be aware that it is the kind you set up and leave up for a week. It's not that it's particularly difficult to set up. But it is HEAVY, so you probably don't want to lug it around much. Don't even think about backpacking with this tent. You might be able to bring it in a short canoe trip.
The materials are high quality--especially the tent stakes which resemble railroad spikes and can really take a beating with a hammer into hard soil. I was a tiny bit skeptical about the rain-shedding capabilities of canvas. I mean... it's kind of old technology. All I can say now is that canvas is AWESOME. The quick release clips for the awning guylines are a nice touch, and it makes taking the awning down quickly in bad weather a breeze. The zippers are all high quality as well. And the bug netting is a durable, fine mesh that can keep no-see-ums out.
The only improvements I would make in the tent are the following: 1) the manual suggests rolling the awning inward so that rain and tree debris are shed (i.e., do not collect in the fold). This turns out to be pretty difficult to do by oneself, which is why the manual says that you should have two people. But this problem could be easily rectified if the end of the awning had a rigid pole inside. What I do is to twist the fabric around one of the awning poles and then pull the pole out once the awning is stowed. 2) it would be great if there were a loop in the center of the tent for hanging an LED lantern. Instead, I strung cord from one side to the other and hung the lantern off of that. But these are minor gripes.
If you buy this tent, I suggest that you invest in a small broom and dust pan. Even with a floor mat outside the door, it's easy to track dirt into the tent. Also, if you leave the tent up for a week or more, you will inevitably find that forest creatures have decided to make various nooks their home (it was daddy longlegs in my case), the top may have tree debris on it, and if it rained at all, the bottom of the tent will have dirt from the rain splash. It's handy to have a brush to get all this stuff off before you pack the tent away.
