This 10 x 10 canvas tent sleeps up to 6 adults, side by side. The Hydra-Shield canvas keeps rain and moisture out, and lets the fabric breathe, which minimizes condensation on the inside walls of the tent.

Kodiak Canvas tents have a very similar design to Spring-bar tents but Kodiak Canvas tents were not made to be a cheap imitation of a Spring-bar tent rather an improved evolution. Kodiak Canvas tents are made with top of the line materials and components including YKK zippers. In a head to head comparison you will get comparable canvas, and frame. However Kodiak Canvas gives you features you do not get in Spring-bar, such as Double Doors, Vents, Strap-and-Cinch Storage Bag, 16 oz vinyl floor (Spring-bar has 9 oz), heavy duty 12 inch steel rod stakes, etc& You get a great value at an affordable price with Kodiak Canvas camping tents.
*It's not a bad idea to go over the seams and stake loops with a waterproofing called Kiwi Camp dry. (Use the silicone based.)

The floor of the tent is a made of a super-duty 16 oz vinyl that is reinforced by laminating it with a polyester mesh. It is similar to what is used in some above ground swimming pools. It is completely waterproof. There is a seam in the floor where two sections vinyl are sewn together. Because of the needle holes a small amount of water could enter at the seam. If needed you can seal this seam with a vinyl glue, or seam tape readily available at outdoor stores.
How do Kodiak Canvas Tents compare with cheaper competitor canvas tents?
The first thing is that Kodiak Canvas is the Cadillac of canvas tents so you may invest a little more for a lot more quality.
One thing to compare is the tent weight. Some competitor 12x9 tents weigh about 69 lbs. This Kodiak Canvas tent weighs 87 lbs. That is 20% more tent for your money.
Other canvas tents are 8 oz. Kodiak Canvas is 8.5 and 10 oz on the roof. Canvas is tricky because there are a lot of factors other than just weight. Kodiak Canvas has a silicone treatment that is breathable and very durable (i.e. it will be waterproof for years and years of use) and will not wick (draw moisture from the outside when you rub against it on the inside).
Other canvas tents have the same center height 7.5 Ft (90 inch ) but the side walls on the Kodiak Canvas tent are 5.5 Ft and others are 4 Ft. That is going to make a huge difference on inside room and comfort.
This floor is a super heavy 16 oz vinyl with welded seams ? almost unheard of.
On competitor canvas tents the 90 degree angle connecting poles are a common failure point. Kodiak Canvas tents are reinforced with a welded brace and heavy duty tubing.

What are the differences between the 6055 Kodiak Tent and the 6051 Kodiak canvas tent?
These tents are very similar in design and features. The only noticeable difference in construction is the 6055 has air vents at the top, whereas the 6051 does not. The other difference, which is minor, is the carrying bag for the 6055 is a little bit fancier in that it uses a cinch and click mechanism to close up the bag, whereas the 6051 does not.
