Yes that is normal. Kodiak manufacturers them in away that takes advantage of the fabric length and size so as to eliminate waste.  The good news is we've had the seam across the ceiling for several years with zero leaking issues.  These seams are water tight, down facing lap felled, and will not leak.

1. Why are there seams on the Kodiak tent roof?

Kodiak tents use a seam on the roof to maximize fabric efficiency and minimize waste during construction. This is a common practice in tent manufacturing and ensures you get the best value for your Kodiak tent.

2. Are these seams waterproof?

Absolutely! Kodiak tents feature down-facing lap felled seams. This specific seam construction technique creates a watertight seal, preventing leaks from rain or snow.

3. Should I seam seal my Kodiak tent?

Kodiak tents come pre-treated with a water repellent for optimal performance. Seam sealing is not necessary unless the tent has sustained extensive wear and tear over time. In that case, you can use a seam sealer specifically designed for canvas tents.

4. Tips for maintaining seam performance

 Proper tent cleaning: Regularly clean your Kodiak tent with a mild soap solution to remove dirt and debris that can compromise the seam sealant over time.
 Storage: When storing your tent, ensure it's completely dry to prevent mold or mildew growth, which can affect seam performance.
