You would fit, but it's a matter of how comfortably. My friend who is about 6' owns this tent and admits that it is pretty snug. At 9' its not so much the length of the tent, but where it tapers down that you will possibly find yourself pushing against the sides. Personally, I HATE touching the walls of a tent. It's annoying and a good way to get damp depending on the tent design. Several of the reviewers below state that you may not like this tent if you are taller than 6' and suggest looking at the spitfire2 due to its extra 1'9" length. (It's also approximately 2 feet wider. The extra material adds on about 1 lb 7 oz. Eureka's website claims the packed size to actually be smaller on the 2 man, but feel that it's likely a typo)
