Why We Like the Kohana 4 Tent

We camp in the midst of summer expecting endless sunshine, but we bring the Eureka Kohana 4 Tent for protection and peace of mind. Its durable polyester shell is designed to protect you and your gear from inclement weather through three seasons, and a lightweight rainfly delivers additional defense if thunderheads loom in the distance. Stash your camping essentials in strategically positioned storage pockets, and protect your bulky gear by stowing it underneath the spacious vestibules. When balmy overnight temps prevail, mesh sidewalls promote airflow to help you keep your cool.

Leaks like a sieve...

Familiarity:
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!
