Know how you feel Bryan, I'm 6' 8"
If you like double wall tents I can recommend the old sierra designs lightyear. I believe they did a version with a silnylon fly which is a bit lighter than the standard model's 3.5lb. It's a neat design with the inner tent extending to one corner of the flysheet. I found it just long enough, and it's pretty sturdy for it's weight. Mine survived a storm at 7000ft without a problem. Well, ok, I sat up with my shoulders bracing the pole for part of the night at the height of the storm.
For uberlite, I managed along with my little lady under a gatewood cape for 10 days in Sardinia this year, but this was marginal, my feet were pressed up against one end, and I used my event jacket to keep my sleeping bag foot dry.
Kath complained about insects, so now I've sold the gatewood and have a Gossamer Gear 'the one' on it's way from gear swap. This will be marginal too, but at that weight, I'm willing to give it a go.
Nice to hear Ron at SMD has plans for a tall man's tent with the 'vamp'. Maybe he heard my plea when I asked him for some matching nylon to extend the gatewood cape (he didn't have any). I look forward to seeing the vamp design, any clues yet?
