Extra space is a good thing.
Waking up in the mountains is always a treat, unless you come to with your tent mate's morning breath in your face and their elbow in your gut. If this ends up being the case more than you'd like, you might want to consider investing in a bigger tent, like the MSR Freelite 3 3-Person 3-Season Tent. Not only does the Freelite give you and your mouth-breathing tent-panion room to stretch out, but it weighs in at just over three pounds, so you won't notice too much extra weight in your pack.
Part of MSR's new lineup of lightweight tents, the Freelite 3 has an impressive trail weight and maintains all the wet-weather protection you need whether you're doing a through-hike in the Appalachians or an out-and-back in the Wind River Range. The fly and floor are made from a 15D nylon that's been treated with MSR's Durashield water-resistant coating, while stout 7000-series aluminum poles ensure the tent stays upright when the winds start to howl. MSR gave the Freelite a double-wall design for protection and micromesh walls for ventilation, so you don't wake up in a dank and dewy cave during those colder nights. Better still, if you want to go ultralight, the Freelite has a fast pitch option that brings the weight down to just under two pounds.

Freelite Tent details from MSR
A lot of condensation
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
The tent is very light, easy to assemble, but the benefits end there. Tent is not suitable for rain (even with light rains, it wets the already inside) and rainfly always touches the roof of the tent, causing condensation and waking me up at night. I was a little frustrated because I did not feel comfortable in it. She also let leak a lot of wind.
