I'm 6-1, so I wanted a tent with a long floor to fit myself and my 70 lb catahoula. I found the 100" floor to be appealing, and it is nice. Keep in mind however that the tent will need to be guyed out at the head and feet with a stick under the line in order to hold the tent up and out of your face and off your feet.
It is also not free standing and requires at least 6 stakes for a short camper, but 8 if you need to guy out the ends to keep them out of your face. The tent comes seam sealed and ready to go, and I haven't had any issues with leaking. It breathes very well with the high to low venting.
Vestibule is very roomy. Stable in high winds as long as it is pitched tightly and well staked. Packs very small, 6x6. The optional pole for those who don't use trekking poles is a high quality lightweight DAC pole, and collapses down to less than a foot long.
Seems to be durable, especially for a tent this lightweight. The tent has been used exclusively in the ADK's.
