    A quick Google of average heights for men in China shows 172cm.
    As I understand it hight is strongly heritable, but only given adequate nutrition.
    The gifts of a market economy are leading to people reaching their full potential.
    As well as pollution etc of course.

    Lanshan 1 Pro arrived today, quick once over looks very good, tidy job and finished well.

    I can confirm it’s a single skin with sewn in bathtub and bug screen, SMD Lunar’esque

    I’ll be up the park tomorrow for a quick pitch and I’ll get some photos while I’m at it.

    First impressions are good though, my first Chinese shelter (apart from the X-Mid) so wasn’t sure what to expect.

    Good to know, I thought I’d read they were made in China

    Not trying to be pedantic-nor bash the Chinese manufacturers, just that I have had four tents made in Vietnam all are/were really excellent quality.

    Not really news, but I snatched this from Reddit and thought I post it here before imgur expires. Thought it might be of interest.

    But that only refers to the size of the inner net and doesn't take account of vestibules/pitched size of outer.

    You'll have to go and complain in Reddit for that... :D but one other comment was that it also didn't cover the internal volume, which affects to livability.
