Kodiak Canvas Tent Care

Caring for your Kodiak Canvas Tent:

VERY IMPORTANT - Your tent must be completely dry before storage! Storing a wet or damp tent, even for a short time, might seem to will ruin it and void the warranty.
To clean tent, hose down with water and wipe with a cloth. Soaps and detergents can damage the water-repellant treatment of the canvas. See cleaning steps to remove Mold & Mildew from canvas tent.
Do not spray insecticides or bug repellant directly on the canvas. This may damage the water-repellant treatment.
For long-term storage, store in a cool dry location that is not exposed to direct sunlight.
This tent is equipped with top-quality YKK zippers. Keep them clean from dirt. It is recommended that you treat the zippers occasionally with a silicone or Teflon lubricant.
The canvas on your tent has a special Hydra-Shield - treatment that is watertight yet breathable. You should rarely, if ever have to retreat the canvas. If you do need to spot treat the canvas for water repellency, use a silicone based repellant such as Camp Dry by Kiwi. Other treatments will clog the tiny holes in the canvas eliminating its breathability.
Flex-Bow tents are All-season meaning they can be used year-round, but are not designed for harsh winter mountaineering, or heavy snow accumulations.
Condensation inside the tent is affected by the difference between inside and outside temperatures, and humidity. Condensation can be reduced by venting your tent. Condensation between the floor and a sleeping mat can be reduced by placing a ground cloth underneath the tent.
