Seems like a decent tent, time will tell

Have yet to go camping with it. My observations from setting it up are: - Tent itself is easy to set up, clips make it a snap. - The poles are rather flimsy, not sure how they'll perform in harsh wind storms. - There are times when a surprise rain makes you have to scurry around in the middle of the night to throw the fly on. This fly is a bit of a pain to get on, and needing two extra poles for the fly is annoying. Not something you want to deal with in the middle of the night. - The stuff sack is barely large enough to get the tent, poles and fly in, there's no room for the ground tarp (footprint)! Will have to get another stuff bag that all will fit into. Not sure I'll keep it, the cons are outweighing the pros so far.

I really want to like this tent. We'll see.

OK. But kind of a let down. I like the concept of the vestibules. The aluminum poles seem fairly flimsy and prone to be easily bent. The floor is rather thin, so a ground mat is mandatory to help prevent inevitable puncture to the thin floor. Biggest complaint is you basically have to set up two tents to have one. It's useless without the rainfly because of the porous and see-through mesh on sides and top. The rainfly it so big and requires so many ties down hooks It's like setting up another tent over the existing one. I get it's supposed to be secure and prevent rain infiltrating the tent. So in that regard it is well designed. But the rainfly better do a darn good job repelling water because you have only one line of defense with this tent due to the mesh top and sides.

The tent is well made- fly extends to bottom of tent walls- great price!

Fly design flaw

Because the fly poles run perpendicular and on top of the tent poles, the fly poles create a lip for water to flow over. Water ends up pooling on the fly and you need to shake the tent to get the water to drain off the fly. This is annoying because if it rains in the night water just sits on the fly all night long. I am sure this will result in an issue with leakage in the future in these locations.

The tent was extremely easy to set up. It was spacious and had lots of room to clip things as well as store things in the numerous pockets. The colors are adorable and I will defiently be using for a long time.

Good quality and good tent

Very easy to set up and take down. Very light for a car camping tent and roomy for four people with dual access and vestibules

So disapointed ! Fly leaks!

As some other users experienced, after three occasions, we found that the "T-loops" on the underside of the rain fly (that hold up the vestibule doors when rolled up) dripped water onto the door mesh and into the tent on both sides. We are very very dissapointed.

About what I expected

The main features I wanted were double entry and large vestibules. Got those. We are replacing a Eureka Apex II. My only disappointment was the lack of inside pockets. All else in a good.

Leaks like a sieve...

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I recently purchased this Eureka Kohana 4 tent from Backcountry via eBay. I was attracted to this tent's rugged fabric, burly aluminum poles, and very thick waterproof coating. I have purchased other Eureka tents in the past and have been very happy with their performance and value. At first sight and inspection, the Eureka Kohana tents seem like great, solid tents. Unfortunately, the Eureka Kohana 4 and 6 person tents are brand new products from Eureka for 2021. Like many brand new products, these tents have their share of flaws and defects. I found this out the hard way while camping a couple times in my new Eureka Kohana 4 tent during some steady rainstorms. The primary design defect concerning the Eureka Kohana tents concern multiple leaks emanating from the rain fly in the dual vestibule areas. There are two areas in the rain fly portion of each of the two vestibules that cause the annoying slow leakage of water into the tent during rainstorms. Again, these leaks occur in BOTH sides of the tents in the vestibule areas. These four total leaks then slowly drip water down onto the mesh doors of each side of the tents. The drops of water pass through the mesh of the doors and then drip onto the tent's floor. You then end up with four separate puddles of water in the tent (two on each side) near the doors. This problem is not limited to only the Eureka Kohana 4 person tent. Look at the review of the Eureka Kohana 6 person tent (by Richard I. dated 4/25/21) on this Backcountry site. You will find that the Eureka Kohana 4 and Kohana 6 tents are both plagued with leaks. Unless you enjoy constantly mopping up four separate puddles of water IN your tent, stay far away from these two defective tents. Eureka needs to work the "bugs" out of both these brand new model tents. Even though Eureka has taped all the seams in the rain fly of these tents, they STILL leak. Even though I applied a seam sealant to the external seams on the rain fly of my Kohana tent, it STILL leaks. There is not way to remedy the leakage problem in the Kohana tents. They truly suffer from a serious design defect. An upper end brand new Eureka tent should not leak at all. Buyer beware!

Perfect (After Eureka fixes the design defect)

Hi, it is August 19th here in Maine and we are experiencing the remnants of Tropical Storm Fred. This created a perfect condition to test my new Eureka Kohana 4 person Tent. I picked this new model Eureka tent due to its rugged fabric, very thick waterproof coatings, and its burly aluminum frame. As I also have a previous model Eureka Mountain Pass XTE tent, I know that Eureka makes very good tents that are strong and durable. The Eureka Kohana tent series are no exception. They are rugged and built like a tank (for a family camping tent). Alas, like all new models, the Eureka Kohana tent does have one bug in its design that needs to be rectified by Eureka. As a previous Kohana tent reviewer "Sam M" mentioned in his fine review, the Kohana tent does suffer some water leakage in the area of what he described as the "the little fabric T- loops on the underside of the tent fly that holds up the vestibule door when rolled up". "Sam M" was very helpful in also submitting a photo with the problem areas circled in red. Prior to using my Kohana tent, I had read the nice helpful review by "Sam M". I subsequently examined the problem areas on the Kohana tent that he mentions. I was puzzled as the interior seams of the rain fly in those areas were taped by Eureka. As I do with all my tents, I proceeded to seam seal all the exterior seams on the rain fly and rest of the Kohana tent with seam sealant. In particular, I spread an extra thick coating of seam sealant in the areas of the "little fabric T loops" on the rain fly. I figured that with the interior seams taped in those areas by Eureka and the exterior of the seams in those areas sealed by me with seam sealant, that it would never be able to leak. However, I was wrong... I was sitting in my tent when the heavy steady rains of the remnants of Tropical Storm Fred came a knocking. For the first hour or so, all was well. I had complete faith that the rest of my Eureka Kohana tent would not leak, but I was concerned about the problem areas identified by "Sam M" in his review. Sure enough, after awhile I noticed my Kohana tent also started experiencing some slow leakage in the same four "fabric T- loop areas on the rain fly" mentioned. The water slowly leaked through the rain fly in the problem areas and then runs down the length of the little " fabric T-loops" and then slowly drips onto and through the tent mesh doors onto the tent floor near the doors. I was surprised and perplexed. If the interior seams in those areas are taped by Eureka and the exterior seams in those areas were seam sealed by me with seam sealant, how on earth can any water leak in those four areas? I am stumped... The tent genius engineers at Eureka need to examine the problem areas and rectify them. The Kohana tent is a truly great tent, but this defect problem needs to be fixed. Because I seamed sealed the exterior seams in the four problem areas heavily with seam sealant, the slow water leakage in my tent was not too bad (also the heavy rain storm only lasted about 3 hours). However, if I had not completed this exterior seam sealing task (or if the heavy rainstorm had lasted a lot longer) I believe the slow leakage may have been more substantial. I know Eureka is up to the task of solving this problem. I expect a brand new, upper end Eureka tent like the Kohana to not leak at all. My Kohana tent did not leak in any other area (not even one drop) other than in the four problem areas identified. As I mentioned earlier, all new products have some bugs in the beginning. Hopefully, Eureka will quickly resolve this problem with the tent fly for future Kohana tent customers. Other than these pesky leaks, it is a real nice tent. For now, I give it a four star rating. It deserves a full five star rating as soon as Eureka fixes the tent rain fly leak issue. Good Luck!
