If you're in the market for a new tent, you may be wondering if you should buy the Kodiak Canvas Deluxe, Kodiak Canvas Basic or the Kodiak Canvas Flex-Bow VX Models. All three are made by Kodiak Canvas Tents, but they have some key differences. Kodiak makes a few different versions of the same sized tents so today, we will compare and contrast these types of tents to help you decide which one would work best for you and clarify any questions you may have.
The amazing quality of components and structure of these tents are very similar. Here are some of the main differences that may sway you in one direction over the other.
The doorways are the first thing to consider. The Basic versions have one doorway and one window on the front and rear. On the other hand, Deluxe models have 2 doorways and 2 windows on the front and back of the tent. This is achieved by having each doorway and each window function interchangeably by using a mesh zipper on the inside of the tent and a door zipper to the outside of the tent. So if you are planning to have the maximum amount of people in the tent, an additional doorway may come in handy. Further, the VX Models have an additional two triangle shaped windows on the sides than the deluxe models, totalling 6 windows and two doors.
The deluxe and VX models have additional customizable gear loft and organizer pockets on the inside of the tent for storage that the basic models do not have.
If you're camping in particularly hot weather, additional windows may be useful to keep the temperature inside your shelter lower, so in this case you should consider the deluxe or VX models. The Deluxe model has 4 windows and two funnel flow vents, the VX models have 6 windows and the basic models have two.
Generally the basic Kodiak Canvas models are slightly less than the deluxe or VX models, so you just need to decide if the extra windows and storage are worth a bit more of an investment for you.
No matter which tent you decide on, you will have an extremely sturdy and well built tent that will last you years to come. You won't regret buying a Kodiak Canvas tent.
