    He talks about the MLD Solomid XL being super roomy. He ended up buying an Altraplex.

    You can set up the LightHeart Gear Solong 6 without getting inside of it. It takes a tiny bit of practice, and is totally doable.

    If a front entry tent meets your criteria, this one should work:

    Slow getting back. Thanks to all who responded. I decided to try the Tarptent Notch Li. I found it used like new and got a great price on eBay. I think it will work as the ends actually slant outward at the ends. It’s a little more narrow than I wanted but acceptable. Great weight. Gotta try it out for real in real life conditions before deciding but I think it’ll work. If it doesn’t the search will continue.
    Oh, blackwater, keep on rollin', Mississippi moon, won't you keep on shining on me!

    While it has poles, I’m a fan of the simple big Agnes fly creek. I think it meets all of your other criteria. Im your same height but 50 lb heavier and have no issues with space in the 2 man, and it weighs around your 2 lb mark.
    The only thing better than mountains, is mountains where you haven't been.

    I'm only 6' tall but just spent 10 nights with a Lunar Solo. Well made, great tent, and while I had enough room to sleep, any movement towards vertical inside the tent caused me to brush up against the inside wall and come into contact with any condensation present. I was able to sit on my butt in the tent and _just_ have enough room to take a hobo bath inside the tent, but there wasn't enough height to sit on my shins.

    My previous (homemade) tent had a 48" height which permitted such activities, which I did miss. I could see how movement would be very limited during a rainstorm without brushing up against the inside of the tent.

    Thanks for mentioning that one, it's greater height over the Lunar Solo might be the ticket for me.
