    Not sure what your exact space needs are but I’m considering selling my Shangri-La 3, Greg.

    Hi Sam, thanks for your post and sorry for my delay; I’ve been away from the computer for a few days.

    I’m looking for a tent that can hold 3 people plus gear (plus dog sometimes), as well as be large enough for potentially a couple extra people to sit in if need be. While my solo kit is pretty dialed, my current family tent is 10 pounds, so I’m looking to reduce there.

    Greg, the Shangri-La 3 is big enough for two adults and a kid with room for gear but not the other requirements you have so this won’t be a good solution for you.  All the best in your hunt.  I’d recommend widening your search and looking into the tipi shelters from Titanium Goat and Seek Outside.

    Thanks, Sam. Seek Outside does make excellent shelters. I have their sil Silex and love it, and their multi-person shelters look fantastic, but I was looking for a somewhat more budget option at this time which led me to the Shangri-La 5 out of hopes someone out there has upgraded and just has an old one sitting in their closet. I’ll check out TiGoat too. I’ve been reading and re-reading Jerry’s tutorial on making a pyramid shelter and doing the math to scale it up, but the MYOG queue is long right now and I’d love to find something I can put into action more quickly for a few more family trips this summer :)

    Happy hiking,

    Greg
