I have an original go lite Shangri-la 3, that I would like to trade for an ultra light goose down sleeping bag, it has to be long and prefer wide. I am 6ft. 1in. 195 lbs. I know zpacks sells an ultra light 5 or 10 degree bag, and money wise your getting a better deal , Shangri-la 3 is turning into a collectors item, I saw one sell on ebay for almost $400. It doesn’t have to be z packs, but I want something to keep me warm in 15 to 20 degree weather that I can still pack..thanks for readingJan 20, 2018 at 12:54 pm #3513391
Ps, for the right sleeping bag I will throw in a 6 moons design 65 L backpackJan 20, 2018 at 2:33 pm #3513394
Edit: good luck

I did not lie when saying that tent was still in production. You have plenty wrong in your statements below. I forgive you.Jan 22, 2018 at 5:03 am #3513647
Hey, I kind of thought you would have apologized by now for lying the way you did? Did you do the research h?my trails is a totally new company. Thierry pyramid 3 IS NOTTHE go,item or he would be breaking patent laws.I had considered buying g the bigger one so I called and talked to the owner, he wouldn’t advise either way about putting in a stove jack, but at golite if you wanted one they would install it for you. That’s how I found out that big agness bought the patents, big agness calls them yahmolite, and yes I bought one and put my titanium cylinder wood burning stove in it. The stove and tent weigh less than 7 lbs, so it is still light enough to backpack as long as you don’t use the inner.
I am just curious why you go out of your way to make it look like I am doing something wrong?. The fly rod is 8 1/2ft long but in 4 pieces it breaks down to a very packable size and at 2 1/4 oz. It is ultra light. Oh yeah I bought the yahmolite right here on bpl.. have you even looked on you tube to see how many bacpack ers fly fish? You won’t be able to count all the videos there are so many.
It seems to me you might have an egotistical problem? I PM’d you first as I didn’t want to embarrass you, everything you have stated is wrong. But you didn’t answer or offer an apology nothing. You or I don’t know each other from anywhere, so why you would try to belittle me, when in actuality you are belittling yourself.
Anyway, I do wish you the best and hope good things happen in your life. I actually think it is just a case of immaturity on your part I’m sure you will grow out of it. Best wishesJan 22, 2018 at 5:50 am #3513655
One thing I forgot to mention, other than my tablet sometimes spelling out like it has a mind of it’s own. Is, I went to the forum marked “gear trades” now if it’s good enough for anyone else to trade on it, why Ken do you object t that I use? Just trying to understand where your coming from? Like you alone has a personal vendetta against me?
I am on social se urity a fixed income with a lot of gear it only makes sense to trade it, and I always try to give the other guy the better deal. You can Che k with everyone I made deals with, some ended up being done on email cause I can’t download my pictures, but the majority of deals started out on this site and can be traced.
I hope we can mend whatever differences we have? This is not the kid of site for this kind of bickering. Yours sincerelyJan 22, 2018 at 6:23 am #3513658Jan 22, 2018 at 11:18 am #3513670

- Well ken, as strange of a apology as this was I accept, golite may have aquired, clothing and such but contact big agness and you will see they bought the patent for the tent, all you have to do is look at a pic of my trails and a pic of golite to see they are not the same. Happy trails but please do the research, I would not e saying this if I didn’t know for a fact, I told you I bought one right after they put big Agnes logo on it

If it makes ya feel any better I almost took you up on the fly rod Trade as I have a brand new .74 duplex. Just don’t get as much time to fly fish in this season of my life as I used to when I lived back in Pa.Jan 23, 2018 at 3:45 pm #3513875
Hey ken, one last tidbit you should know! If you Google big agness yahmolite 3 or 5. It will tell you all about big agness buying the patents for the golite 3 and 5. They were trying to regroup some of the loss over golite owing them so much money. I always liked golite, and I’m sure my trails will be a much better company as they have learned froM all the mistakes they made as golite. Another positive about my trails is their pyramid series tents are now 4 season where the Shangri-la was only 3 season.
I know your the type of person that hates to be wrong, but Google it or call on the phone, you’ve been so overwhelmed in trying to make me look stupid that, that you just make yourself look worse, because I had previous knowledge, I talked with my trails on the phone and I Google it long before you decided you didn’t like me, I already knew what I was talking about, you just posted a my trails advertisementioned without doing any of the research. I surely hope your bosses don’t become aware of how haphazardly you approach a problem. (Don’t worry I won’t tell) in fact I sincerely wish the best for you and hope you’ve learned something from all this? None of this should have ever been posted, you should leave people to their deals, if they make mistakes, well, that’s life learn from your mistakes sincerely robertJan 23, 2018 at 4:33 pm #3513887
Wow. So much fuss over stating that the tent is still being produced, but now by MyTrail which is owned by the same people Golite was. And a couple of suggestions about Gear Swap etiquette. Simple things like stating a price, is shipping included, forms of payment accepted. Pretty outlandish surely.
Your Yahamonite, I sold it to you, so I am quite aware of the facts. The same shelter as,
Good luck with your sale, trade, story, whatever. Good day. I’m out.Jan 23, 2018 at 7:13 pm #3513938
Wow, what is with you? You act like the kid on the schoolyard that had to be right even when he was wrong,lol, but he also had to run home from school everyday. And you did not sell me the yahmolite, if you did your really a hypocrite, cause he went into a big deal how big agness bought the patent.you have a computer use it Google it ,it will tell you big agness bought golite Shangri-la patent. There are hundreds of pyramid tents, sure my trail sells them, but they don’t sell the Shangri-la. They don’t even look the same and my trails are 4 season, Shangri-la are 3 season, explain that. All your doing is continuing to show ignorance. You have to have the last word even though it shows you are wrong. Grow up your not on the school yard anymore. And as far as trading, you don’t name a price? I’ve trade at least 6 items everyone was just that a trade you mail your items I mail mine! What is wrong with you to bring that up? A trade is a tradeJan 23, 2018 at 7:21 pm #3513943
Here is my for sale thread and PayPal receipt with your paymentJan 23, 2018 at 9:20 pm #3513979
Big Agnes rebranded GoLiteJan 23, 2018 at 10:25 pm #3513999
This will be my last post to you ,as you’ve seen fit to report me like you were helping me? That’s why you said you hijacked my post very hekpful.
Anyway look at the pics of the golite and the one of my trails! They look nothing alike and one is 4 season called my trails the other is 3 season called golite. The golite is wider, the door is different it is two different tents. Goodbye my friend and good luck, if you were to give helpful advise to others as you have me there wouldn’t be any business.
I realize that we have both taken this too far and for that I am sorryJan 23, 2018 at 11:00 pm #3514005
You poor misinformed soul. I posted the photos above so you could see plain as day that they are the same thing. Zoom in and look at the logos. I don’t appreciate being called a liar by someone who won’t finish a discussion. Still waiting for your email of proof.
You never did apologize for saying I am not the one who sold you the Yahmonite. You were wrong there too. Insults are unwarranted.Jan 23, 2018 at 11:20 pm #3514011
Please no more posts we’ve done too much harm already
Your pics clearly show the golite is shorter the doors are completely different and my trails is 4 season golite is three season.open your eyes, if anyone owes an apology it is you. Did you even bother to Google the facts? Of course not when you think your right?Jan 24, 2018 at 12:19 am #3514021
