I ordered an SS1 to improve my own kit for similar reasons. I'm still somewhat new to backpacking, but similar to your build I think I'd just be too cramped in a Notch (I've not looked into the Wedge). My specs in my own search weren't too technical: double wall, under 3lbs, usable in New England and the Mid-Atlantic in 3 seasons, and spacious enough to accommodate a stomach sleeper with his arms above his head and moves around a lot. I won't know if this is the tent for me, however, until I give it a try. It looks good and I like the features, but my sense is only field experience will tell. So pull the trigger with gusto on either tent and have at it! And let us all know how it works out!
