    The Hilleberg Allak is very roomy for one with an inside length of 89". Pricey and heavy but durable. Well made and well designed.

    I used a Quarterdome T2 plus on recent trip. It worked well as far as size was concerned (94x54 instead of 84x51) and had a decent height to sit up in the tent and good vestibules. The drawback for me was that the zippers stopped working - first on one side and then the other. Some of that might not be unique to this tent as did a lot of camping in the desert including a good sandstorm.

    At 6'3", I can fit myself and a my 6'1"ish buddy (or my two small boys) in my Eureka Spitfire 2, and it's reasonably light and cheap.

    I'm 6'5" with wide shoulders and have plenty of room, even with another person in the tent.

    Yes. Its perfect for my girlfriend and I when we tour together but a little too big for me. Love the design and everything about it though. Just searching options at this point. What do you use?

    When have you and your girlfriend toured together?

    I recently added a Big Agnes UL2 to my tent stable. Like it a lot. Light, easy to set up and enough room for my 6'2" body.

    I did. It was on sale when I bought it. They make a one-man version, but I think it's not free standing, which is a deal breaker for me.
