Perfect for us
My wife and I fit snugly but nicely in this tent even with her gigantic air mattress of a sleeping pad. We're about 5'8" and fit perfectly lengthwise. Anyone taller would probably want the XL version I would guess. It sets up super quick and easily in the dark which is nice since we are procrastinators. The Jake's feet can get kind of annoying when taking the tent down but nothing to troublesome. Not a fan of the vestibule area, wish it was just a little bigger. Packs down well and is really light. We'd buy it again though.
Great tent for the right use. Just enough room for two sleeping pads and a few knickknacks. The vestibule is big enough for boots and things but not really for a whole pack. Packed up it takes less room than my 4 season fly alone, and minmum weight was just over 3 lbs. I'm not a big fan of the pole hubs but they do work.
Bottom line is this is a fantactic tent for light and fast trips where your just sleeping in it. If you want to hang out and lounge around then it's a bit small. Think of it as a 2 person bivi!
Great 1-Person Tent
I love this tent, but only as a one-person tent. I recently used it as a solo on a 12-day self support Grand Canyon kayak trip. Someone told me, "Wow! That's a big one-person tent." When I told her it was a two-person tent, she said, "Oh. That's a small two-person tent."
It sets up very quickly and is taut once staked out. I didn't ever notice the fly touching the tent body. There's plenty of headroom and the vestibule is adequate. While the hubbed pole system makes setup a breeze, it also adds to the bulk of the poles once they're folded up. I also wish it were a little longer. I'm 5'11" and found that at any give time either the hood or the foot of my sleeping bag was touching the tent walls. I borrowed this tent for the trip, but I think I would get the XL version if I were to buy one. The fact that it's free-standing is nice. I never had trouble staking it out in the Grand Canyon, but it was nice having a free-standing tent that I could pick up and shake the sand out of.
Overall, I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a roomy one-person tent or who doesn't mind getting cozy with someone else in a small tent.
