Overall, yes I definitley liked the tent. Im a bit shorter than you but still had spare leg room. I would be picking that it would be long enough for you. Did find the vestibule to be a bit on the small side. Just put as much gear as I could (mostly food)inside my pack and stashed pack in vestibule.
Seams arent sealed at factory so this will be something I will look at doing shortly. Will be picking up the footprint for it as well so can you use it just with tent fly .I got my mine through Back Country gear, they had them on sale.
The other one person tent I looked at was a Hilleberg soulo, great reviews but a bit heavier weight wise + plus more expensive.
Have been using a locally(nz) made one person tent for the last 15yrs or so. Its a "macpac microlight". Have used this mainly with the tent fly and no inner. Just wanted something that was a bit more stable in higher winds...
