A new shelter has just appeared from GoLite, the specialist equipment lightweight hiking. Both tent and tarp, the Shangri-La is mounted in the manner of a tent Canadian tubeless, and using two walking sticks or branches found locally, as a mast. The golite tents Shangri-La is for one person and is extremely light at 510g for an advertised rate of $ 150. GoLite the class as a 4 season shelter. The fabric used, the SilLite is a siliconized 30-denier nylon for a weight of 60 g/m2 golite tents announces that as more resistant than its equivalent in polyurethane. At this writing, the golite tents Shangri-La is not yet available on the manufacturer's website. It is in fact remained visible for a few hours, a form of a preview after all . . . . I intend soon to me a light 2 person tent to purchase. Does anyone have experience with Jack Wolfskin Pocket Hotel, MSR Zoid 2, Nomad Amrock, goLITE The two other tents or in that category?. I have experience with the Hilleberg Nallo, the latest version (be careful in the shop: the new version is a few pounds lighter, an important difference). It is expensive but well made tent. The canopy is on the small side, but with some skill you can use the backpacks on the sides down and through the middle inside. Especially cheap tents are often brief VWB the groundsheet. I have such a tent Agu had a counterfeit to a model of North Face, that is really fast broke. Groundsheet and a self repair is difficult, get smeerseltjes not closed properly. I walk itself also "show off" with a Nallo 3 (old version, so she was in the 'sold') Am very satisfied over. Je will have to think deeply what you want to start a business (3 or 4 season tent?) Ben your long road, lots of luggage, your car is around the corner? Sometimes it is better for the tent to buy a size bigger. So you can backpack in slapen. Zelf I am with my friend in mid-summer trapped by snow in the Pyrenees. We were glad that we have a 3-pers. tent way waren. Voor those pounds more weight I would not even go to twijfelen. Zoek internet. Er are many sites that provide information about the different types of golite tents with even a forum of users (see eg www. site. nl-hiking) . buy a tent north face west wind saved two pounds and a few liters (3) probably the smallest and lightest ever made expiditie tent is not cheap but worth the trouble. TNF Westwind I personally think the best tent. We have used a winter trek in the Vosges. Vl snow and wind and pretty much below-10C. No problems at all. See outdoor pages on this site. The question is where that tent to serve. If you do not have extreme conditions (ie wind and snow) is looking for a tent € 500 waste of money. A west wind also weighs 3 pounds and 2 not, incidentally, is no longer made by TNF. What you do in the shops is surplus. However, a good tent, myself have had one too. Now I have "normal" trekking the Ramble Ogre Thumb (2. 65 kg). I've been five years and no problems with it. . . .
