User Review: GoLite Shangri-La 5
Design: three season single pole shelter
Ease of Setup: With one person pretty easy, more than one- a breeze
Price Paid: $300 w/ floor
We purchased 3 of these tents with floors to use on large group outings into the Colorado wilderness. We would have loved to have the 6+ or 8+ but Golite no longer makes the larger shelters. These tents will hold 5 people but there will not be room for gear.
The tents are super light wieght and when split among a group of 3, is very minimal. The shelter setup is very easy and durable. The material held up very well in high wind (30-40 mpg) and worked great in snow/sleet. The tent had very good circulation.
The only issue we found was ... oh wait, we didn't find any!
The tent is so lite, my wife takes it on any outings we go on. We have a two person tent but it weighs about the same as this one, and we have way more room, which is nice when there is a dog involved!
I wished Golite made the 6+ and 8+ still, but these will do in the grand scheme of things.
I highly recommend this shelter. Does great on snow, and dirt. Not very good in rocky areas.
