Hey guys today i'm going to be talking a little about this tent i've been using a lot which is the golight shangri-la three comes in two parts um that i use anyways there's another part uh just the floor that i haven't used yet this is the outer shell i think it's a sill nylon doesn't weigh too much and i have the.
Poles in here as well this is uh necessary for the spring and the summer which is the bug net uh it also has a bathtub floor an 8 inch bathtub floor it goes up high uh it's a really really useful piece as well i think they call this the nest and uh this would be just the case like i said so first off.
It's about four and a half pounds together in the winter time i've used this the the the shell just by itself there's no bugs obviously it's totally fine by itself cuts away in about half the the outer shell weighs a little bit less than the nest but i keep the poles with the shell so it kind of evens itself out.
So we'll call it right around two pounds for this and uh that's not a lot to carry at all for for our tent i really have been interested in and and finding myself preferring sleeping on the ground a lot more than a hammock i have used a hammock quite extensively but for me personally i feel like i get a better night's sleep on the ground.
I'm gonna go ahead and set this stuff up so here's the toggle system on how it stays uh how it connects to the peg it's just a little toggle system like that it's nothing fancy but it works really well and the shock cord and goes over the stake so there's a shot of the floor of the of.
The nest and there's a rubberized piece there to show you that so there's a shot of the floor of the nest it's got a reinforced rubberized piece there to stop the pole from ripping through the bottom of the tent which is an awesome idea and if you just look to the top it's got the same deal on the top it's.
Very very strong i wouldn't be worried about cutting a piece of like a sapling to use in place of the pole if you didn't want to carry the pole another feature that i really like is that it comes with this pull tab where you can actually hang it from a tree you.
Don't have to use a puller so before i put the shell on and show you how that works i just wanted to show you how high up the bathtub comes up the bathtub floor comes up a good it says 8 inches close to it i would say but that way you're it's a little bit of.
A wind block because the the shell doesn't cover right to the floor and you're not going to get wet i've been in this thing in downpours in heavy rain and sorry in heavy wind and snow i actually took this thing to uh upper peninsula northern michigan in february we got down to about negative 18 celsius it was cold and uh i liked it because it.
Provided me more coverage than a tarp i didn't have as much wind flowing up underneath all right here's the shell i'm gonna put it on on real time to show you guys how quick it is it goes up real simple and easy it's uh quick to put on quick to take down the only real thing is you just gotta.
Line up the door obviously slide it over the top uh the shell actually has a rubberized portion at the top and the hook as well the loop as well so you can hang it from a limb if you don't have the pole or don't want to use the pole and these uh the connector pieces the the tie outs really cool design.
Just slide it it locks or you can slide it out farther really really well it works really well i like it well thought out design i think i usually tighten it up after i put it all on so so.
All right that's it it's all done up except for this one okay so it's got three ventilation ports work pretty well i'm not gonna lie you do get a little condensation in here especially with two.
Guys in there it fits two guys really comfortably i actually have my gear in here as well with another guy it says it's made for three but i wouldn't i wouldn't really push it with a nice roll back feature most tents have this obviously.
So i'm gonna air it out for a while i had just used this trip or that sorry that i had just used this uh tent on a week-long algonquin trip that me and my buddy kyle took uh he actually has a really really awesome video he did a really good job editing it and and shooting it i'll put.
The link in the description here you guys should definitely check it out it's really really cool it's worth watching uh we had a great time uh put this thing through adverse conditions like crazy we had like strong strong winds the whole time this thing held up awesomely what a good i think another good feature about this is.
It has these reflective guy tie outs go to a lot of meats and uh sometimes i put i set up way far away just so i can sleep without hearing anybody and uh it's nice to have these reflectors if you're away from your tent at night so your headlamp really really hits it and show you where you're at.
As you can see it's pretty roomy in here um i have my bag a big backpack here i'd have my sleeping stuff here and then the other another person could have their bag and their sleeping stuff there as well this middle bar kind of acts as like a divider like this is my half your.
This is your half i kind of like that um all in all this tent is awesome it's got actual other tile points too where you can type paracord whatever and really cinch it down uh this tent has really held up and uh it's worse it's worth its weight my friend and i did that trip in algonquin uh he carried one piece i.
Carried the other piece kind of split it up two pounds each it's not really bad for for a a super contained shelter i wouldn't have wanted to be in a tarp this this last trip it was way way too windy so this thing was a godsend i'm really happy i got it a couple things that i don't really like not even for any fault of the of the.
Manufacturer or anything it's just wear and tear if you use your gear it's going to get ruined or get get a little banged up these bags could be tougher um stuff sacks from putting my my pole in and out of it it's actually ripped little holes in in the bottom of it that's not a big deal i can patch it up.
Or make a new one it's really not a big deal at all uh but the pole itself has this like uh bungee cord in it and it's lost it all elasticity it's really a pain in the ass i actually have to stuff it back in every time so i'm either gonna just take the the elastic cord out or maybe replace it with some shock cord but um.
Watch out watch out go on um all in all this is an awesome tent i researched it today i think they're they're on sale for about 250 right now normally 500 they were saying so that's a.
Scout move quite a quite a big difference if you can pick one up for 250 i think that's a steal um i recommend it highly so check that other video that i was talking about from kyle uh is it the i'll put the description or sorry the link in the description and i hope you guys find it of some use i know that.
