My old tent weighs 14 pounds and is not completely rainproof, but its sleeping compartment has a massive length of 290 cm, so I was willing to put up with its shortcomings in other areas. However, it has developed a mold problem during the very wet winter, so now it's time for me to buy a new tent.
I have found that the "Exped Vela II Extreme" suits my needs well with its 255 cm length. However, in Europe it's very expensive. I was hoping to take advantage of the low dollar rate, and import it from the US, but I have not been able to find a store that stocks it.
Can anyone point me to an online store in the US that sells this Exped tent, or do you have any tips for other tents that can accomodate an extremely tall individual? Or maybe one of you is selling such a tent? I would prefer a 2-person tent. I'm 6'8 and would need at least 240 cm / 95 inches of usable length. I'm hoping to spend no more than 300 dollars.
When shopping for tents, it's quite clear that my height is a handicap.
