Hi Stuart, I've got the Lanshan 1 plus and think it's a better option than the Lanshan Pro due to the ability to use the inner with other tents (MLD Trailstar / Cricket) and ability to use the inner on it's own. The inner feels pretty spacious 👍

Have you tried the inner with the Cricket? I can see it working in the Trailstar, but the Cricket is basically a rectangle and there is a pointy bit at the back of the Lanshan. Do you have any mods to make it fit?

I've tried it in the cricket and it worked quite well - there's an image of it in the cricket at 3.55 in the video

Not just the last year.
I remember camping my way around southern Spain in a tent of that design in 1982 - it might even have been a Vango ?? - just not with walking poles as the uprights.
Very little is truly new .......
Yes most tent designs have been around since the 80s at least. But this particular design has been even more so copied in the lasts few years. I think partially due to the increased popularity of cheap Ali express tents and the lanshan 2, gossamer gear the two, etc

Possibly the angle of the photo, but it looks like a 1 person to me? Quite possibly assymetric too.

Not many of those about?
Especially with solid inner.

(Six Moons Skyscape ( hybrid), Turner Lightweight Tents ( mesh inners)
You might be right. Looks more like a single inner.

Sadly sounds like Ron has decided to drop the corner strut rods in his inners ! God knoww why I for one think it’s a crap idea can only make a small difference to weight ,but in my opinion helps get a good sharp inner pitch

Well, Mids are heavy and cramped for the footprint and weight anyway....

Depends what they are made of...My DCF Mid is a 1.5P, it takes a 3m x 1.5m groundsheet inside it, so it's pretty roomy inside, yet it only weighs 326g. With the groundsheet included it still only weighs 448g, and that isn't heavy.

not noticed this one before, 1035g complete; dare i suggest its reasonably priced for the spec ;)
Sure, if you think £750 for a one person, single wall, DCF tent, that weighs over a kilo, is reasonably priced...Personally I think its a total rip off, especially when my larger Jumper Home Mountain House 1.5p DCF tent weighs a mere 326g (or 448g with the groundsheet included), and yet it only cost me £350.

Picked up a nearly new Lanshan Plus quite cheaply from marketplace.

Nice little tent, took a bit of adjusting to get it right, but now I know how, it should be easy to pitch next time. Spacious inside and the porch can be pitched low if needed without much loss of space. J-zip unfortunaly, though different inners can be bought.

Might keep this one 😅
