I hunt in Colorado for archery otc elk. This light weight tent was no problem carrying in my pack all day. Takes about 5 minutes to set it up. This tent kept my brother and I warm, temperature was around 28 degrees in the morning. Can’t wait for next year.
I bought this tent when it first came out. I’ve used it on several trips from late season elk in Idaho to spring turkey in Texas and this tent is amazing! It breaths very well in the heat but holds the heat very nicely. Very easy to set up as well. I look forward to many more nights in this tent!
I used the Kodiak tent for late summer through the fall. Initially it got tested with wind and rain storms in the White Mountains of NH while getting ready for a fall elk hunt. Easy to put up and use. For the fall hunt the tent worked well especially when it snowed and I was able to vent the tent without the worry of snow getting blown up under the fly. As with any tent think about what you are carrying in and for how long. I would have needed a larger tent for another hunter. Used from 75 deg. to down in the teens without an issue.
I used this on a fishing trip in Alaska for 5 days in August with varying temps and was able to stay warm and when it wasn't cold it ventilated incredibly well. I used it last week also in Colorado on 20 degree evenings and again it was perfect with the Scout 30 bag. I am particular about a combination of weight and comfort and this stuff hits it on the head. I am glad Nemo jumped on making gear specific to backcountry hunting, when you see the features you understand quickly the advantages of this over standard gear.
My boyfriend and I used this tent all hunting season from car camping to backpack hunts. Temperatures at night ranged from 65F to -5F. We experienced pretty much all the weather conditions - rain, snow, and high winds.
Our 3 complaints: The inside of the tent body and the rain fly ice up significantly at temps below 15F, despite venting configurations. Second, the vestibule is very small for a tent that is advertised as a 2P specifically designed for backpack hunting. Finally, set-up instructions state it is very important to stake out all points, but you're not provided with enough stakes or guy-lines to do this.
Good traits: Windows and versatility of venting is pretty great. Really can keep in the heat. Definitely kept us dry in the rain. It held up well, with minimal flapping in high winds and withstood about 4inches of snow piling up. The tent fabric dries pretty quickly which is helpful. The tent length is appropriate and provides a little extra space (it could be an inch or two wider). The reflective guy-lines and seams are really awesome for finding the tent at night.
Overall, how light the tent is negates all of our complaints!
Easy to set up. Looks great. Terrible performance in the rain. First time out, it rained intermittently through the night. tent. We had intermittent rain throughout the night. The outside rainfly acted more like a sponge than a water repellent. All our sleeping bags and gear touching the lower parts of the tent were wet. The tub floor most certainly did not provide a dry tent as advertised. Our boots stored in the outside vestibule were also wet as the rainfly was soaked.
I was hoping to take this tent on a western hunt next year but I will never trust this tent to perform in those conditions when I need it the most.
