Kodiak Canvas is a company that makes high-quality, durable tents. They have a few lines of tents depending on your needs, so today we will discuss the Flex-bow and the Cabin series. Both of these lines have some great features, but which one do you need? Let's compare the Kodiak Canvas Flex-bow tent and the Kodiak Canvas Cabin Tent to help you decide which one is right for you!
If you are going on an extended hunting or camping trip (one week or more) and want to really set up shop, then the Kodiak Canvas Cabin Tent is a great option. It's ideal for longer stays since it feels more like a full size cabin. It's an all season tent built to stand up to heavy duty weather, has multiple rooms and the large D shaped doors allow for easy access. The tall roof (7.5 ft at peak) and steep wall designs (5 ft at the ends) give an open inside stand-up, stroll around comfort.
The Kodiak Canvas Flex-bow Tent is an extremely versatile option as it is lighter than the cabin tent and has an easy single person setup. However, it is still roomy enough for a family of four and has all the features you need for a comfortable camping trip. It's made with waterproof and mildew resistant canvas, Spacious 6'6" ceiling height allows you to walk around, has large windows for ventilation and views and also comes with an awning for shade. This tent is perfect for a weekend away.
This is an important question because you need to make sure everyone has a comfortable place to sleep. The Kodiak Canvas Cabin Tent sleeps six people very comfortably as it has a 12 person capacity, while the Kodiak Canvas Flex-bow 10x10 Tent sleeps four people comfortably with a 6 person capacity.
Something else to consider is the set up. The Flex-Bow tent has an easy one person set up, whereas the Cabin Tents require two people and more time.
Each Kodiak Canvas Tent is good to use year-round, they all have Hydra-Shield™ 100% Cotton Duck Canvas which is durable, watertight, and breathable. They can withstand rain and snow (not designed for heavy snow accumulation). They all boast no see um mesh to keep even the smallest pests out and have wonderful ventilation.
If it's going to be really windy, you may want to consider the Flex-Bow tent as it has a smaller surface area than the Cabin tents. If you are using the Cabin tent and encounter high winds, you can add some extra guy ropes if needed.
The Cabin tent weighs approx. 174 lbs. (Includes tent, poles, stakes, and storage bags. Stores in two carry bags approx. 87 lbs. each) with a pack size of Length: 46 in. Diameter: 14 in., Poles--Length: 46 in. Diameter: 12 in.
The Flex-Bow weighs 30.5 lbs. (Tent 15.5, poles 10.5, stakes 4.5 lbs.) with a pack size length 30 in., diameter 10 in.
So as you can see, there is a huge difference in weight and size with these tents, so that is definitely something to consider when planning out your transportation needs.
After looking at all the features of both Kodiak Canvas tents, it's really up to you to decide which one is best for your needs. If you need a larger tent for more people and don't mind the extra weight and set up time, then go with the Kodiak Canvas Cabin Tent. However, if you want a lighter, more versatile option then the Kodiak Canvas Flex-bow Tent is a great choice. No matter which one you choose, you can be confident that you're getting a high quality, durable Kodiak Canvas tent.
