Kodiak Canvas introduces its new Super Deluxe VX series of Flex-bow tents. VX tents by Kodiak Canvas have the features of the deluxe flex bow tent, plus 2 additional large windows at the ends. If your camping includes warmer weather, then this option may be ideal for you. Large windows on all sides allows you to really open things up maximizing ventilation and airflow. Because of the overlapping design you can partially unzip these windows during stormy weather to get some airflow while still keeping rain out. Of course, these versatile tents are four-season and give tremendous year-round performance. Get the flex Bow VX tent with quality you can trust from Competitive Edge.
We have taken our deluxe versions and replaced the vents with huge windows (everything else is the same). Windows on all four sides allows you to really open the tent up providing amazing openness. You get superb ventilation and improved temperature management. In daytime or hot conditions, zip the windows down and let the fresh air circulate.
At night or when the temperature drops, zip up the windows partially or all the way. Available in 10x10 and 10x14 sizes.

Vestibule add-on item (optional)
The vestibule attaches to the outside awning over the front door allowing you privacy and some protection from the elements. Go ahead and tuck your camp chairs, cooler, or other items away when not in use to keep a bit more out of site of others. The vestibule goes up in just minutes and the horizontal bar that's included is worth using on your awning even if you aren't setting up the vestibule. It creates a more crisp, stiff look for the awning. You must purchase a grommet kit and add your own grommets to overlap the awning and vestibule.
I wanted to give you some info about the vestibule that you ordered.
Please note that this vestibule requires you to add additional grommets to attach to the tent.
The wing vestibule accessory will enhance your awning leisure area by providing additional shade, and protection from wind and rain. It attaches underneath the front of the awning and extends out to the ground.
Two side wings provide additional cover on the sides. It creates a nice space to store gear, put some chairs, or keep a pet. It also adds privacy if the front windows are open. Made with polyester, denier cloth. In order to properly install the wing vestibule you must first ensure that your Flex-bow tent has the required grommets on the end of the awning flap. You will need five grommets as illustrated in figure 1 below. The grommets are represented by the black circles and numbered 1-5. Depending on when your tent was made, and the specific model, you may be required to add two or three additional grommets. If you do not have the required grommets kits a do-it-yourself kit can be found at a local hardware store such as Home Depot or Lowe’s. Here is the kit we recommend: http://www.homedepot.com/p/General-Tools-Grommet-Kit-with-12-Grommets-81264/204763455
Grommets 3 and 4 should be placed 4 inches from the front edge of the awning as show below. Grommet 5 should be in the center of the awning on the same horizontal plane as grommets 1 and 2.
2/1/2016 Jason R. : "Best tent money can buy! It got us through a crazy strong storm with 60+ mph winds and extremely heavy downpour. My kids didn't even wake up. Can't say enough good about just how awesome these tents are. Worth every penny! 2/1/2016"
1/27/2016 Corrie Kohlmann, Billings, MT: "I own the 6041 VX and it is hands down the best tent I have ever owned! This thing takes a beating and never flinched! The triangle windows are amazing, giving you multiple ways to vent it! I live in Montana and my tent laughs at the harsh climate .... It's easy to set up for one person ... It's not a back packing tent as it weighs 90 pounds ... I use mine for a base camp tent then use a cheap nylon tent to hike up to the alpine lakes for some overnight fishing .... If you have been hesitant to buy one because of the price, I'll just say this, you will not be disappointed ... This really is a great tent ... You'll pass this tent down instead of throwing away cheap nylon tents every few years .... Competitive Edge Products, Inc sells these ... If you keep checking their website, you can get a great deal on them from time to time ... I got a great deal on mine for right around 600.00 bucks and free shipping to boot .... I love this tent and you will too!"
