Badged Flame's Creed, noticed that with a few things that are supposedly 3F UL. The green does make me more interested, wonder if the 1 is also available in green - better go look. :)

I’ve been ‘umming and arring about a Lanshan2 for a while.
I borrowed @JKM ’s for a test pitch. Whilst I like the “bang for buck” aspect; it would be a drafty shelter and I don’t like the colour choices.
I think in an ideal world I would post my own colour choice of silnylon to the factory and use it for hot summer buggy nights, nice breeze, when rain is expected.
In which case i’d Ideally be in my hammock lol,
Horses for courses ‘an all that

Comes with a solid inner for an extra £14 but agree would be a good july/August tent with the mesh inner. Don't really need one though. The green is quite nice.

There’s green and there’s green.

I would like Pantone mugs in my house cos i’m a picky design geek but I favour stuff from the car boot. :biggrin:

So I used my Lanshan 2 for a couple of nights last week. Both in sheltered locations, one night in crazy rain. I've got the '4 season' (ha!) inner.

Do I like it?
Yeah, I think so. I don't love it, but it's a nice roomy tent to sleep in. It's very practical and isn't too heavy. Being able to squeeze in one of my kids if needed is a bonus too.

Did you get wet?
Nope, no leakage. I'd seam sealed the bits 'they' say you should.

Was the pitch okay?
Mostly. My carbon poles support quite a high pitch and for the first night I was on a slight slope. I didn't use the 3F footprint and took polypro instead. Slippy mat + Slippy groundsheet + Slippy footprint meant I moved the whole inner tent foot-wards overnight. Something to be aware of. The shock cord holding the inner was doubled over for some reason which left very little clearance between inner and out. I untied the fishermans and re-tied with a single loop. There wasn't any adjustability in the cord, it was just doubled.
The poles, and my 3D printed mushrooms on the ends, tended to slip off their default location. You have to use the webbing loop to wrap around them so they don't move. It's not a great design, but you can get it to work.

Much sag in the wet?
No! Much less than on my other silnylon tents.

Good for bad weather?
This tent in high winds? Hell no!

Recommend it?
Kind of. It is what it is.

Good points.
Quick to pitch, behaviour in fair weather, price, room for the price, weight for the price, quality for the price

Bad points
Suitability for proper camping weather. The default pegs aren't great on muddy ground. I took a couple of 26cm 'a bit too big' pegs for the main guys as I didn't want to risk them.

Summary: It'll do me until I bite the bullet and pickup a Hilleberg Soulo, which I'm bound to do at some point

I seen a couple of walkers last week who both had a 3F Lanshan2 (green fly). The inner door was mesh, it looked like the inner was probably separate and at least part solid on the walls.

He said it cost £150 ish and was just over 900grams all in.

I haven't paid much attention to the different Lanshans, is he mistaken iro of weight? He didn't look like someone who weighed their gear.

Is he confusing it with a Pro weight? (single skin?..)

My lanshan 2 weighs about 1.2 kg. That's the double skin with mesh inner. Cost me £80 at the start of 2020.

Most likely. My Lanshan 1 (Pro) comes in at around 650g so there is no way his Lanshan 2 (non-Pro) comes in at 900 if it also has the separate inner.
