I'm 6'4" (76") and my wife is 5'8". We both are thin so with is not an issue, but lenght could be with tent length of 78". Is this cutting it to close for comfort. If so, anyone know of a similar larger tent in this price range.

the Mountain Hardwear Hammerhead 3 is a large and tall 3man with a similar configuration for a comparable price, although it is not technically speaking a 4season tent. the big agnes fly-creek ul2 is 90" long, less than one quarter of the weight, but a bit more expensive. it is also a 3 season tent. honestly, i think you will be kind of hard pressed to find a larger 4season tent in that price range, but the things i would look for in a 4season tent are not present on this Eureka Alpenlite 2XT anyway...
