I added the vestibule, which is a nice feature, but you could probably do just about as well with a cheap tarp and some stakes. I also bring along a extra pole and homemade spar to prop up the very middle of the outside canopy, mine tends to sag without it no matter how tight I try to set it up. Lot's of other good tips in this thread, glad I looked!
    Yea I couldn’t believe they marked it down that much just from a tear in the box. That pole for the awning is a great idea. That’s the only complaint I could have is the awning is kind of low. I think that will help a lot.

    I have had one for three years now and love it. I was going to get the 10x10 tent but I went to the factory web site and they had the 14x10 on sale for less than the regular price of the 10x10. The only problem I've had is when it rains the awning out front sags a bit and you sure don't want to stand up to fast after you duck under that 3 gallon bubble

    My 10x10 Kodiak is plush. Heat source is a single burner tank top propane heater when needed (rarely, never while sleeping-the Cush method as noted above). 0 issues w condensation in Colorado. I have yet to use the awning while camping, it rolls up and ties to tent above doors. Mine has permanent vents @ the tops of both curved sidewalls. I throw old rugs and carpet scraps on the tent floor to protect it from cot legs, table legs, etc.

    I usually just let my awning hang down against the tent door. The way I figure it, it's just double insulation on that side of the tent.

    Funny story with mine.. We were car camping in the summer. I typically use a cheap nylon tent for summer camping because it allows more air flow than the Kodiak. Well this time, the highs were upper 80's, so I decided to bring the Kodiak and plug in our portable AC unit since we had an electric site. Worked great the first day/night, until it rained. The inside of the tent stayed dry, but when the canvas got wet it stopped breathing. Meanwhile, we have an AC unit pulling air from inside the tent and pushing it out a vent zipped into the door. We woke up to the walls of the tent closing in on us; we were literally being vacuum sealed inside the tent. I had to jump up and turn off the AC, then open the door to allow air back in and re-stake one side of the tent.

    I have one and love it as well. My advice would be to get the heavy tarp to go under the floor. It takes the abuse of sticks and thorns and is cheap insurance for the rent floor.

    My wallet hates you guys. Just ordered a 10x14 today from the rave reviews they get on here. It'll be perfect for car camping with the kiddos and our elk hunt this fall. Be giving it it's test run up north when the morels start popping.

    I have the 10x14. We use rubber drink coasters under our cot legs. Easy for with my xl for, my 2 boys reg cots. Saw one last fall with stove jack during elk hunt, but I never caught up with the dude to see it close up. Tough tent. Survived 2am range cow back rubbing during the bow hunt. Seemed a great compromise between smaller lighter domes, and full size wall tent.

    It's on my list to upgrade the family tent. My brother has one and we've stayed quite a few nights during hunting season (temps down to low 10-20). I love my wall tent for extended stays, but for a couple of nights it is super easy to setup and performs great.
