I bought this tent for my 13-year-old daughter for backpacking. She finds the space adequate and somehow manages to sleep in the tent with her external frame backpack stored inside, though she is a small 5' 1".
We had a big rain one night while out on the trail, but she slept through it and nothing of hers got wet. On a buggy evening she had enough room to work on the latch hook rug she'd packed.
Although not freestanding, with a backpack inside at one end that end hardly needs to be staked out.
With the fly off, there's no better tent for air flow or stargazing. With the fly on, the air is far more restricted but it does continue at ground level. On warm nights where rain is threatened, it's worth guying out the fly to increase the air flow.
