I was looking for a good solo tent for adventure touring on the motorcycle. Weight isn't usually a major concern, but packable size is. While this may not fall into the ultralight category, it is still very light. I compress the tent, fly, and footprint down into a single small stuff sack and pack the stakes and poles separately. FYI, I have not used the original stakes, only MSR Groundhogs.As a big guy (6'4" 290), having enough room is always a concern as well. I use a Nemo Cosmo XL and it fits perfectly, which provides plenty of room to lay my carcass at night. Also, sitting up is no problem either. It's nice to not feel claustrophobic in a solo tent. I have not yet tried it in lightweight mode (fly and footprint only), but I'm sure that could be a viable option as well, even if it's just to wait out a bit of weather.
