    Default tipi style shelter?

    I am in the market for the Shangri-La 3 [ http://www.golite.com/Shangri-La-3-T...3.aspx#reviews ] but I cannot find one for the life of me! Does anyone know any similar products in the same price range that are good quality and earth toned?

    They also have a larger one

    I don't know about the quality of these tents, but I have purchased tents from them and their cheap price does suffer a bit in quality, but I have been happy with the ones I have purchased from them.

    Hope that helps
    Where is the fun in buying something when you can make it.

    Stay away from this tent. I bought it over the summer and even siliconed treated it. You will get wet! I woke up at 1 am on a camping trip to steady drips coming in all through the tent fabric. Ultimately by 6 am it was a lake in the tent.

    I'm thinking that may have been partly condensation. Did you have the bottom and peak vents wide open?

    I'm also looking to get one of their tents, the Shangri-La 5 Tent. All of their tents are supposed to be back in stock by late spring, but who knows for sure. One thing we can probably count on though is a price increase when production starts back up.

    Try http://wyominglostandfound.com/tipi.html and check out his camo tarp tipi.
    Add a stove jack and your set.

    I second that, I purchased the large one and as soon as there was a slight wind the center pole bent and the tent was ruined...prior to that the center pole actually ripped through the top of the tent and had to be reinforced.

    I am also waiting for the Shangri-La 5. I hope the price will stay below $300.

    I had top vent open...it's always open. I also had at least one lower vent open. This was during a rain storm. It leaked like crazy. Eureka Assault 4 is my goto tent now.

    Do you own one of these personally? It looks to be just a ordinary hardware store camo tarp with a zipper tailored into it for $170. Their ripstop tipis are over a grand.
