I own quite a bit of GoLite gear (Jam2, Jam, original Pinnacle, new Pinnacle, Ion, Rush, Shangri-La 2 & a few pieces of clothing) I have enjoyed using all of it & have been very impressed with the quailty of design & construction. However, over the last few months I have purchased & returned three Shangri-La 3s. I love the design, but I finaly gave up ordering & returning them. The Shangri-La 3s I recieved should never made it past quailty control, imho. The sewing was horrible. They could not be pitched tight because of many puckers & meanding seams. One even had atleast three good size holes midway on three large panels. I think these are beautiful structures to look at, inside & out. I still believe it would be a wonderful, what ever the weather throws at you shelter, but I gave up!
I certainly hope the Shangri-La 3 you recieve is up to GoLite's usual high standards.
But just in case, check it inside & out.
