After a variety of poor tents, I bought a Sierra Design Tiros with Expedition Fly a couple of years ago. I have been really pleased with it.
I am 6'3" and this gives me the room. The extra fly space lets me keep the dirt outside better. And, also important, it packs fairly small--not the smallest and lightest, but it works well. I have been in snowstorms, thunderstorms, etc., and had no problem.
It seemed a little expensive when I bought it, but it was worth it. Also, I bought it about this time of year, so there was a discount.
On the other hand, my daughter has a Kelty that has a lot of room and was inexpensive. However, it has to have stakes in, while the Tiros can stand alone if necessary.
Hope that this helps.
