Comments about Big Agnes Slater UL1+ Tent:
I just completed my first trip with this tent: a two night backpacking trip in the Petrified Forest National Park. The tent was awesome! At 6'4", I had tried a number of other (and even purchased the Copper Spur UL1) before discovering that NONE of them were big enough for a comfortable fit - and certainly not with any additional gear stored in the tent overnight. The Slater's legroom was perfect, and there was even a little extra room for a few small gear items. And, despite the extra space, the Slater checked in at a lower weight than the Copper Spur that it replaced.
The construction is solid, and the materials all appeared to be pretty durable. Time will tell.
The tent held up great in high winds. At one point, when I was setting up, the winds were so strong that the tent was pushed nearly to its side on the ground (a product of the 3 points of pole contact instead of 4), but all of that was resolved when I guyed it out, and I didn't have a lick of trouble after that.
The wall materials are nearly all solid (i.e., little mesh), which is good for a trip like mine, where the temps got down into the 30s at night. However, I could see it getting a little stuffy in warmer weather. Although, some of the professional reviews I've read of this tent suggest the little bit of mesh is sufficient to keep that from happening.
My one complaint is minor. The ties for the door toggles were so tight that, after tying back the door my first night, I had to cut the ties to undo them! That was a bummer, but otherwise, I had not one complaint about the Slater.
