Kodiak provides a lifetime warranty on their tents. The warranty
obviously doesn't include negligence such as rolling it up when it is
soaking wet (happens more often than you'd
think). They are that confident in the longevity of the Kodiak flex-bow tents that they provide such a long warranty. Warranty calls
are quite rare. When they do get warranty
claims they are quick to honor them whether it be sending a new part
or sending a new tent if needed.
My personal Kodiak tent has lasted over four years with about 10-15
days of use per year. I haven't had a single issue and have had many
boy scout troops, churches, and neighboring campers
ask where I got such a hardcore tent.
The blow-molding process is not the same as constructing something from wood or metal. Blow molding has a bit of size variance from the time of production to the time of packaging. This variance can be upwards of 3% in some cases. Lifetime had previously indicated the 2960 and 2968 Lifetime round tables as 48-inch diameter round tables. After careful remeasuring, they have now updated this size to 46-inches. They are still the same model as always, with the same material of a construction, same weight capacity, and same features. Lifetime has simply determined that their mold for the table, after the blow-molding process has settled, produces a table top closer to 46-inches instead of 48.
