So I value the internal space and height this tent offers and its small packing size, particuarly that the inner and outer are slim and can be shared amount two packs or neatly stored as you wish in one.
However, when camping with two people, and due to the similar size of our long exped matts (197 x 65) the pole gets in the way.
Can anyone recommend a nice tent as an alternative?
If you want low weight/pack size and good headroom, a 'mid (pyramid) is the way to go IMO
If you don't want a pole in the centre of your tent and want a tent with good headroom, then something heavier will be needed - go for a 3 man tent - geo (semi) or tunnel maybe - larger width tends to be taller.
We currentlly use a cheap Vango Halo 300 for 'compact' but roomy car camping tent - it isn't that light though.
If you do want a mid.....
Oware Pyramid tarps ( I have a 9x9 - no inner made yet)
Bear Paw Luna
Black Diamond Megalight
Luxe Outdoors Mega Horn
Inners may be available, if not Oookworks or Bearpaw do bespoke/custom
All these are square based so quicker/easier to pitch than an SL3.
Thanks Mole. Funnily enough I ended up making a quick (rare) decision yesterday and orderered:
