I've used a freestanding North Face for about the last 6 years.  It's the 
tadpole which looks a lot like the Clip Flashlite.  It's been a good tent, 
but I wouldn't recommend it for any six footers.  I'm 6'2" and either my toes 
or head bulge against the tent when I stretch out.  I'll be taking a Nomad on 
my next hike.

Happy trails,
