Airy, light, well made of good materials
Thursday, 7 July 2016 | Stephen
Greatly improved over Shangri-la 5; subtly recut with greater catenary to suit Euro conditions. Guying out points of current Nigor production all reinforced with darts of dyneema reinforced stuff. Really good quality 15D silnylon fly. DAC pegs are a (good quality) joke - they'll do for the intermediates; but you'll need 23cm pegs for all 8 main points. Intermediates work well with small loops of 5mm shord - gives nice taut pitch that more-or-less self-tightens during a damp night. I have the WickiUp 3 as well, and the WickiUp 4 better for tall folk - I'm 6'4" and it's hard not to touch inner of WickiUp 3. Great tent and great service from backpackinglight - chased up courier, who was a bit crap.
