I have not spent much time tent camping, but after the bug bit, I knew it was time to get a serious tent. The Kodak is a SERIOUS TENT! We have only used it once so far and the weather was very accommodating, but the feel and design of the tent is...
Top quality tent down to the last detail, even the stakes and guide ropes for the awning are solid which you never see for other similar products. This is by no means a backpacking tent due to size and weight, however, for car camping it is excellent
Well I have not got to camp in it yet, but I did set it up in my front yard. I did get some strange looks by passing neighbor, but it set up very easy.
We spent a lot of time looking for a canvas tent. This is it! We took it to the mountains of North Carolina during Thanksgiving. Cold outside, warmer on the inside.
This tent is by far the best tent I have ever seen. I followed the instructions about wetting it down, then left it up over night to make sure it was really dry.
I have not actually camped in the tent as of yet but it got a really good test anyway. I set it up the day I received it and wet it down. Some business came up and I was unable to take it down after it dried that evening.
More than I expected. Shipping was VERY fast. I expected notification but the package arrived before any notification came- less than 1 week after order placed.
