Bill, I have a friend who has the Sierra Light Year and likes it. It lists for $149 and weighs in at 3 lbs. He said there is plenty of headroom though.The SD LY CD is on the short list so far. Thanks for the info from your friend.I guess you have to expect that most single person tents will be tight on space and are not freestanding. What surprises me is the number of people who complain in reviews about lack of extra space. What did they expect for a 3 lb tent?
The Clip Flashlight 2 is only a few ounces more in weight, but offers a LOT more room.My own preference is a 2 man tent which gives 1 man plenty of room plus room to store gear inside.
Have you looked at the Eureka Spitfire Bill? I've used mine on two hikes and it works fine for me. It's not real spacious but is light, packs small, sets up easily and fit my budget at the time. I haven't endured any inclement weather in it yet, but have years of experience with Eureka products and expect it will do quite well.
I have always been a fan of Eureka products as well...always seems to be good technical equipment at an affordable price...that spitfire looks nice.... http://www.campmor.com/outdoor/gear/Product___23889
I just spent the last eight nights in a Six Moon Designs Lunar Solo, which weighs less than 2 pounds, sets up easily with practice, and allows me to sit up inside. It's a single-wall tent, so I wouldn't take it out into a heavy storm or excessively wet weather. I'd also recommend getting the custom-cut Tyvek groundcloth. It's pricey but worth looking into.
I've been using my Cabela's XPG Ultralight for about a year now and have nothing but good things to say about it.http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templates/links/link.jsp?id=0031780516763a&type=product&cmCat=cchart_dome_tent

That seems like a good tent. Gets lots of good reviews. Wonder if they ever go on sale? Bill
