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 allow 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 a tremendous year-round performance. Get the flex Bow VX tent with the quality you can trust from Competitive Edge.

These are watertight! There is no increased chance of water leaking, because of the side windows.  It's the same canvas closing the windows from the interior, plus a mesh screen - giving it even more protection against leaking. 

We have taken our deluxe versions and replaced the vents with huge windows (everything else is the same). Windows on all four sides allow 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 Portch 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 sight 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 it is recommended to add additional grommets to attach the vestibule porch 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 of 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 Lowes. Here is the kit we recommend: Grommet Kit - Grommets 3 and 4 should be placed 4 inches from the front edge of the awning as shown 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 K, 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 backpacking tent as it weighs 90 pounds ... I use mine as 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!"

Large front and back doors with top rated #10 YKK zippers give convenient access. The zippers are incredible quality - similar to luggage zippers that do not jam.



Six large windows provide openness and superb ventilation. Windows have no-see-um screen mesh, keeping out the smallest bugs.

A customizable gear loft and organizer system offer plenty of places to stow gear.



A large awning provides shade and a covered entry.

The handy strap-and-cinch storage bag means no cramming a tent into an undersized bag and includes the instructions printed on it so they don't get lost.


Hefty 12-inch steel stakes included. Competitive Edge Products, Inc is an exclusive distributor of this 6041 tent model.

Flex-Bow Frame: Exceptionally sturdy.


Spacious 6'6" ceiling height provides walk-around comfort.

Great Product
The first time camping with the 10x14 #6041VX model was 3 solid days of rain in the AZ White Mountains. I was able to set it up in 15 minutes and it kept completely dry. My wife does not like camping, but like this tent a lot. This tent is great and Competitive Edge Products is great to deal with.

I purchased this tent for a 2 week trip to Yellowstone in late May and early June of 2014. It rained. It snowed. It grappled. It snowed some more. The first few days were extremely cold at night: down to 10 degrees. My brother and I were warm and dry. My stuff never got wet. If you buy this tent, buy a Mr. Heater to go along with you. You have to be very careful in your choice of campsites. This is a big tent, and you have to, let me repeat this, YOU HAVE, stake all four corners of this tent, or it will not stand up. Go scout you campsite and make sure it isn't to little or too rocky; because, you must stake all four corners. Saying that, set up is easy. I have no problem setting this tent up by myself. Would I buy it again. Yes, without reservation

Kodiak Canvas 10 x 14
After much on-line investigation and review checking I decided to buy the Kodiak Canvas 10x14 with the V windows. After receiving the tent I decided to see how fast it would really go up. I set the timer on my phone and went to work. All I did prior to starting the timer was to open the box. Please note that it was a very windy day. From start to finish, (including canopy), it took me 23 minutes. Worst part was managing the canopy in the wind, (should have staked it down). The tent is awesome and I am looking forward to the first camping trip of the summer. Couple of things on my to-do list concerning the tent; 1. throw in a few stakes for the tarp , (there are none included). 2. build some sort of stake puller, (will prevent pulling on the tent loops to get the stakes loose). Overall I am very happy with the purchase of this tent.

Q: I just received this tent. In the manual it shows the 2-piece Upright Poles and Awning Poles having a metal wire connecting the 2 parts of each pole, just like the 2-piece T-Pole. However, my Upright Poles and Awning Poles do not have this connecting wire. Instead, each pole is 2 separate pieces, and they are identical to the Upright Poles and Awning Poles shown for your 9x8 tent (Model 6098). How do I get the correct poles? Gina

Q: I purchased the 10x14 VX model along with the 10x14 screen house from CompetitiveEdge. With my growing concern on wide spreading ticks that carry Lyme disease, I am considering a permethrin based solution that is known to be a good tick repellent and apply the permethrin solution directly onto my Kodiak canvas tents. The question is whether the permethrin solution do any harm to the canvas material of the tents. Would you let me know if the idea of using the permethrin solution would not harm the water repellency of the tents, please? Thank you.
Asked by: Jay - 5/19/2018
A: I've spent a lot of time in the woods and throwing permethrin on the tent might not work as good as you think. Use insect repellent on yourself and conduct tick checks before you enter your tent. Blouse your boots while outside and keep the tent closed up as much as possible. Even if you spray permethrin on your tent that won't stop you from bringing them in. You just need to do your part. I wouldn't risk damaging the silicone coating by applying permethrin personally. The tent will keep out the ticks as is. They prefer to hang out in tall grass and be extra cautious between the months of April and September (tick season).

Q: Hello! I'm trying to decide between 10x14 deluxe vs the deluxe vx. I understand the only difference is the two side windows and I also understand the openness, the ventilation, etc. I do both warm and cold weather camping. Q #1 are the windows made of the same canvas material as the tent itself? Q #2 does the tent with the extra windows hold the same amount of heat as the one without Windows? Q # 3 I want to order the vestibule but I don't want to have to add the grommets. If I pay extra would you guys be able to do it for me? I have tried adding grommets to tarps in the past and it's nothing but a disaster! Lol I don't want to have to "fix" a product that I just bought knowing I'm probably going to destroy it lol! Thanks
Asked by: Customer - 3/5/2018
A: the windows are made of the same canvas material, both hands hold the same amount of heat in with or without the windows, we don't add the grommets, but it's quite easy, there is a video on youtube that shows just how easy.

Q: Is the tent a lot heavier if you have to take it down in the rain? And harder to put back up to dry it out, I imagine? How soon do you have to put the tent back up to dry it out, so that it doesn't mold? And how long does it take to dry, if it's in a sunny spot? Thanks in advance for any comments related to these points of discussion!
Asked by: Mn Wild Rose - 11/21/2017
A: This totally depends on your location and climate. In Utah on a summer day it takes a few hours to dry out a soaking wet tent. If you put it in storage wet-it will mold. How quickly it molds depends on the temperature in the severity of how wet it might be. Basically, if you get rained on and you're traveling back home it won't be a problem if it is wet and rolled up as long as you do not have a rolled up for several days. My tent is not much heavier to set up when it's wet. Most of the water roles off of the tent-so it generally does not suck up a lot of water. On my tent most of the water appears to be on the seams. Still, no water gets inside. Feel free to contact us with any other questions.

Answer provided by:  Admin (5/13/2017)
A: Hi, So we had the same idea you did, and the disco-bed bunk bed cot will fit fine in bunk bed mode. You will have about 2 feet between the bottom of the bad and the edge of the tent (effectively making your 10x14 footprint and 10x10 footprint). We tucked bags and stuff into the triangular space between the tent and the wall and it worked okay. The kids like crawling in there. So we bought ours on a leap of faith and decided to actually sell used our brand new disco-beds. The main reason is that we were sleeping 6 people, and let me tell you, if you want to fit 3 disco beds in there, or even 1 full size and 2 kids size (we tried), it is super crammed and you don't have room to stand without tripping all over the place. It is possible but makes the huge spacious tent into a very tight space. What we did instead was bout really nice foam/air mattress. It was a Thermarest 10 cm thick one with foam and a self inflating option. Let me tell you these were a bit pricey but so worth it. They were comfy, off the floor, warm (cots are cold without a mattress anyway), and went near the edge of the tent so we didn't lose any space due to the slope of the roof. Any ways, I hope this helps. I am sorry I don't have the measurements for you. The end of the tent slope more than the front and back. If I had to guess after spending about 40-15 nights in the tent I would have to say that at 3 feet high the the tent is about 8X10 feet. Plenty of room for two disco bed cots, but NOT FOR THREE (don't make the same mistake I did). All the best!

Q: We are quite delighted with this tent. We live in South Florida and aside from an approaching Tropical Storm or Hurricane is there any reason we cannot leave this tent up indefinitely in our backyard? Any special treatment over time to maintain the tent in its best condition? Thank you.
Asked by: Haroldg49 - 4/7/2017
A: This tent is not intended for long term use. It needs to be allowed to dry out especially in wet or humid areas to prevent mildew. That said, many stores will keep them on display for up to a year and they will remain in great condition.

A: This is the complete answer from the Kodiak Website, I am surprised that Competitive Edge didn't reference this excellent and detailed answer. There are different considerations based on high humidity, high shade, or high UV situations. Enjoy:FAQ'S What do I do if my tent gets mold or mildew? Waterproofing / Leaking-How do I clean or wash my tent? What if the difference between a Flex-bow "deluxe" -model and "basic" model? Are there any special considerations for extended use situations? How can I prevent mold or mildew? Where are Kodiak Canvas tents manufactured? What do I do if my tent gets mold or mildew? A: If your tent is covered in black mold, and the canvas is falling apart there is not much you can do at that point. The tent body should be replaced. If you catch mold in the early stages you can save your tent. We suggest that you treat your tent with a product called Iosso Mold Mildew Stain Remover. You can find it online. Follow the instructions on the label. We have found it to be safe, easy, and effective to use. Mold and Iosso treatment will degrade some of the canvas water repellence. You should retreat the affected area with a silicone based water repellent such as Kiwi Camp Dry. Be sure to get the silicone based. Other treatments could clog the tiny pores in the canvas and cause it to lose its breathability. Waterproofing / Leaking Q: Will a Kodiak Canvas tent keep me dry? A: Absolutely yes! Kodiak Canvas tents are made with premium Hydra-Shield canvas. However, not all tents are completely waterproof out of the box. On occasion a new tent will experience some leaking. Over the life of the tent, occasional, waterproofing maintenance will be required. If leaking occurs, it is an easy fix. Treat the affected area with a SILICONE based waterproofing such as Kiwi Camp Dry®. This should absolutely take care of any leaks, and you should seldom have to retreat. Caution: Do not use other types of waterproofing such as Canvak® on this Hydra-Shield canvas, as it could affect the breathability of the canvas. When properly sealed, your expectation should be that a Kodiak Canvas tent will stay completely dry inside, even during drenching rains. Q: I grew up with canvas tents and remember when it was raining you could not touch the inside walls of the tent or it would wick water. Is this the case with a Kodiak Canvas tent? A: There have been some significant advances in canvas technology since the good old days. Kodiak Canvas tents are made with Hydra-Shield canvas that is specially made for tents. The super tight weave and silicone waterproofing combine to make an excellent barrier against moisture that will not wick water. Another great thing about Hydra-Shield canvas is that it is breathable. This minimizes mugginess on the inside which means you stay more comfortable! Q: Do I need to waterproof my tent when I first get it? A: After initial set-up, it is suggested that you spray the tent with water and allow it to dry completely. This seasons the canvas. The water causes the canvas to shrink slightly, closing the needle holes where the canvas was stitched. The most effective way to do this is to have the tent out in its first good rain. This process is only required once. VERY IMPORTANTthe tent must be completely dry before storage! STORING A WET OR DAMP TENT, EVEN FOR A SHORT TIME, WILL RUIN IT AND VOID THE WARRANTY. If you want to be completely sure your tent is sealed and waterproof, its not a bad idea to go over the seams, stitching, and stake loops with a SILICONE based waterproofing such as Kiwi Camp Dry®. This should absolutely prevent any leaks, and you should seldom, have to retreat.Q: Condensation?A: Condensation is the process in which water vapor in the air condenses or collects into water droplets on a surface. We have all seen a glass of ice water on a hot day drip water down the outside of the glass. This is a classic case of condensation. If your tent has a leak it is most often an isolated location where the tent is leaking. Condensation is not a leak. It is water droplets forming from water vapor on the inside of the tent. Examples would be water droplets across and entire panel, or water between a mattress and the tent floor. Factors that can impact condensation are the following:1) Humiditya. Climate related.b. The number of people breathing inside the tent. Respiration increases humidity.c. Propane appliances such as a heater produce humidity.2) The difference in temperature inside the tent, and outside the tent. Snow on the roof, or frozen ground can greatly increase the chance of condensation formation.3) Ventilation. A tent that is zipped up tight will be more likely to form condensation. Ways to minimize condensation:1) Crack open some windows and/or vents even on cold nights.2) If there is snow on the outside of the tent, clear it off periodically.3) Do not use propane heaters.4) When possible, reduce the number of campers per tent.5) Use a ground tarp.6) If you are on the floor of the tent on cold ground, use extra insulation between your bed and the floor. How do I clean or wash my tent?The best way to clean a tent is to spray it down with water, or wait for a good rain storm. Do not sweat a little dirtthat will give your tent some character. If you must, you can clean an area with some soapy water and a sponge. Use rubbing alcohol to remove pine tar. Soap and alcohol will affect the water proofing. After washing rinse with clean water and allow to dry. Then retreat the area with a silicone based waterproofing such as Kiwi Camp Dry. Be sure to air your tent out, and let it dry completely before storage. What if the difference between a Flex-bow "deluxe" model and "basic" model?The deluxe model is the full feature version. The basic model is the same tent less some of the features. Here is a list of the differences. Everything else would be identical. 1) The basic models do not have the gear loft or clip on bag and pocket organizers. (See note below for #6098). 2) The basic models do not have vents. The vents help improve air-flow and temperature management. 3) The basic models do not have a window inside the door, thus there are two windows (one front, and one back) and two doors (one front, one back). The deluxe model has four windows (two front, two back) and two doors. 4) The basic models have a duffel style storage bag with a zipper. The Deluxe model has a handy strap-and-cinch storage bag so the bag conforms to the rolled tent. No cramming or stuffing.(See note below for #6098) 5) The deluxe models use top of the line YKK Brand zippers. The basic models use a generic version of the same zippers. Note that we have used the generic zippers for nearly 5 years in our basic tents and have very few issues. See the video link on the home page that shows the features of the deluxe Flex-bow tent. Just click the info video button on the lower left hand corner. This will give you a better idea of the tents features on the deluxe tents. If you can afford the deluxe version then go for the full features. If you are on a budget, the basic models are a great value. * Note: Model #6098 9x8 ft. Flex-bow deluxe tent does not have a gear loft, and has a duffel style storage bag. Are there any special considerations for extended use situations?If you are using your tent for extended use situations, periods of continuous use for three weeks or greater, there are some precautions you should be aware of in order to maximize the life of your tent. 1) Canvas Rot: This occurs when the canvas at the bottom of the tent is in constant contact with moist ground. The canvas never dries out and eventually will begin to rot or decay in the areas of contact. Even if there is no precipitation, this can be caused by moisture from dew. Prevention: For extend use, make sure the tent is placed in an area that is well drained and dry. It could be placed on sand, gravel, or a slated wooden platform. Extended use on grassy areas or moist soil should be avoided. 2) Mildew: Is more prone to grow in humid climates in dark or shady areas. Prevention: Opening the tent up daily and letting it air out. When possible, place the tent in an area where it can receive a couple hours of direct sunlight a day. 3) UV damage. While your Kodiak Canvas tent is much less susceptible to UV deterioration than many synthetic fabrics, over time it will eventually degrade the canvas. Life expectancy in full sunlight should exceed one year of continuous use. Possibly much more than a year there are many factors. Prevention: Placing your tent an area where it receives full sunlight for only a few hours a day is best, and will prolong its useful life.

Q: How suitable would this tent be for the beach? Would the supplied stakes be enough or perhaps additional stakes more appropriate for sand be a better solution?
Asked by: Brent - 3/28/2017
A: These stakes are 12” long, and 3/8” in diameter. These are the largest stakes that I have ever seen used for a tent. They should work just fine, you may want to angle pointing them under the tent to make them more difficult to pull up and provide more stability. You may want to clean your tent out afterward to get rid of any sand that may get inside.

Q: Why would one choose this tent (Deluxe 6041VX 10X14) over the 6041 10X14 Deluxe tent? The only difference is VX model has side windows and the other doesn’t? Why would one select this one over the other? What are the advantages and disadvantage between the two models. i’m looking at both and can’t decide between the two?
Asked by: Joseph - 3/12/2017
A: The number of windows is the main difference, they give you extra Ventilation, extra openness and a better view. The extra windows allow you to open up the tent even more and regulate airflow and temperature better.

Q: I live in south Florida. The ground in most cases is soft and moist. What would you recommend for tent pegs? Also how large is the opening where the peg goes through to hold the tent? Thank you!
Asked by: Rob - 10/15/2016
A: f you are referring to the tent stakes, then they are already included with the tent. The stake loops are small, but they will fit the stakes just fine. These tents are extremely good at keeping water out, this one also includes a free tarp as an extra layer of protection.

Q: Looking at the 6043 Kodiak tent - what is a privacy vestibule?
Asked by: S J Barker - 8/23/2016
A: The privacy vestibule attaches to the exterior awning over the door. It encloses some of that area to keep it out of the sun or the view of others. You can take a look at it, just type 1604 into the search box.

Q: Does this tarp have a built in floor? Why the ground tarp?
Asked by: Anna H - 8/22/2016
A: The tent does have a floor, the tarp is there as an additional incentive to buy, and it also helps protect the floor of the tent against sharp objects and other things. It is basically just an extra layer of precaution.

Q: What are the ceiling dimensions of the 10x14 tents and the 10x10 tents? I am trying to figure out what the wall slope would roughly be on these sizes. I have heard the 10x10 is more vertical. Thanks.
Asked by: Rd - 8/19/2016
A: There is some slope to the tent walls, but it isn't significant. I have the 10X14 VX, and I keep 3 cots (and my cot is 86X35, the other two are smaller) and 2 sleeping bags in it pretty comfortably. I suspect you would not find it cramped, depending on how much you put in it.

Answer provided by:  Dave 68 (8/22/2016)

Q: Is this canvas tent suitable for summer camping in Florida or should I go with a traditional nylon tent? We do a a lot of camping in the Southeast during the summertime and I don't recall seeing any canvas tents. I do like the looks of the tent and the great reviews but not sure if its the best tent for summer camping in the south. It seems most users are in the Mid country and North West were its colder and less humid. Would appreciate any comments on this topic.
Asked by: Joseph - 6/30/2016
A: I took this tent out in Late August in N Texas when the daytime high was around 103 (106, with humidity) and around 90 at night. With both windows open it was just as cool as any nylon tent I've been in.

Q: Are there any issues with the super deluxe model leaking more than the deluxe? It seems to me that without the vents, the tent would leak if you try and vent using a window during a rain. Anyone have any experience?
Asked by: Yuma Wildcat - 11/5/2015
A: No, it does not leak at all. I would recommend looking at the video we have towards the end it shows that the zippers are covered by flaps that are about 2 inches wide or close thereto. You make a good point about the vents. You cannot open the windows on the super deluxe during a rainstorm or it will definitely get water. That's a trade off worth noting.

A: Thank you for your quick response. I recognize that "we can't have it all", it just forces a tough decision when forking out this kind of money. While I absolutely think it's worth it, just Makes it tough to decide. Being in Arizona I camp in anything from lows of 85 down south to highs of 15-20 up north. It seems like neither tent would handle both. I would want to be able to run a propane heater in a cold rain or snow, but couldn't in super deluxe. Still two great tents, just makes for a very tough decision. Thanks again for your prompt response.

Q: I recently purchased your Flex Bow. Love it. But I'm wondering - do you have a recommendation for how to pitch the awning in such a way that it sheds water instead of pooling?
Asked by: Camper - 7/16/2015
Was this answer helpful?  6 of 7 Customer(s) found this Answer helpful.
Answer provided by:  SIDETRACK (7/3/2016)
A: The more you use the tent, the easier this is to do. When I put up my tent I simply create a little droop on the side of the awning to manage where the water drips. If your awning is pooling in the middle simply take one rope and re-stake it at a different angle. Careful though! It could splash mud up on the tent if you are camping in an area without a lot of vegetation. Sometimes when it rains I simply let the awning down altogether and allow it to rest against the tent - leaving the stakes as they were so I can quickly put it back up when the rain stops

Q: How many people does this tent fit comfortably?
Asked by: Maddie - 7/15/2015
A: I am sure you can fit more than 8 if everyone was smaller and not taking up much space in sleeping. The opposite could also be true. If people were occupying a lot of space, you would not be able to fit 8 people. A better way to possibly get at an answer to this question is to look at the square footage and layout of the tent and map out where each person would be sleeping and how much space they would be occupying. That will give you an idea of the occupancy you would be able to reach.
