That is good to know.

I'm a bit round but I'm not tall so most tents are big enough for me, barring claustrophobia issues.  However I often have the problem that I can't unzip the screen door or reach the outer flap to seal it up without getting on my knees because my arms aren't very long.  Doesn't seem to be a problem with the Rainbow, is with the Contrail and the Squall.
