I second the vote for a Swift. Also, it is very breathable, and water-tight.
I was able to sleep in it with all my gear (pack towards back and side of
my bag), with boots in the vestibule. Just enough room for me to sit up and
read if I had to.  I am about 5'6" (and 1/4" ;D  ) and found it room enough...
