Hilleberg Kaitum 3 Footprint

Expensive, but useful, addition to your valued Hilleberg tent. Provides great level of floor protection against wear and mechanical damage, introduces floor in vestibules, extends the possible pitching options. The footprint stays connected to the tent during transportation and storage, which is simply great. Drying the footprint after night Purchasing the footprint for my Hilleberg Kaitum 3 tent was a difficult decision for me. The floor of this tent is already strong, and the footprint is quite… Full review

Mountainsmith Morrison Footprint

This footprint has grommets, clips, and loops on corner tabs. I would recommend to anyone wanting a fitted footprint. I use this footprint on my Mountainsmith Upland 2 tent and it is a perfect fit. The footprint has clips and so does my rain fly so it attaches perfectly. The fly clips can be tightened or slacked out to assure it a custom fit on the tent. I use the grommets to attach to the tent poles themselves. After I lay out the footprint and set up the tent minus fly I just place the tent on… Full review

Hike-N-Light Tyvek tent footprints

An inexpensive alternative to tent manufacturer's nylon footprints, but not set up for a fly-first or fly-only pitch. Some assembly required, and hard to keep clean. I figure TS folk ought to know about the pros and cons of this cheap alternative to manufacturer's tent footprints... The cons (mainly weight) and pros (mainly protection) of tent footprints are much debated here on TS and other backpacker's sites. They seem to be a good idea if you can afford the weight or may be pitching your tent… Full review

SlingFin CrossBow 2 Footprint

This factory footprint is functional and lightweight, helping protect the valuable bathtub floor of the CrossBow 2 tent. Simplicity of design makes this footprint easy to use, allowing one to focus on the horizon ahead, and not the gear. This footprint is best for those who want the perfect fitting accessory for all SlingFin CrossBow 2 tent configurations. SlingFin’s accessory tent footprint is simply a no-brainer! Four clips attach the the tent body, whether one is using the CrossBow 2 StormPak,… Full review

ALPS Mountaineering Tasmanian 2 Floor Saver

The brown footprint (floor saver) is ripstop nylon. Has six reinforced grommets for the tent poles to slip into. Six male 3/4 inch buckles snap into the tent fly buckles. Works in snow and ice. Seam seal it when you first get it — to be sure it doesn't leak. The one that I bought did not come with taped seams. Washable. Does not extend under the Tasmanian 2 vestibules. There is a 3-person size. This one won't fit the 3-person Tasmanian 3 tent. Can be used for other things that need a ripstop waterproof… Full review

Hilleberg Kaitum 3 Footprint

It doesn't seem like a footprint should get its own review, but even the Hilleberg footprints are worthy of review. They are super well fitting and have features not found on any other footprint I can think of. The Kaitum 3 footprint is like all Hilleberg products, the very best of materials, design and manufacture.  Obviously, this one is made specifically for the Kaitum 3 tent which I reviewed separately. I write to review something as seemingly mundane as a tent footprint because Hilleberg puts… Full review

MSR Hubba Hubba / NX / HP Footprint

It is a perfect addition to the Hubba Hubba tent and gives it a more secure underground. It is lightweight and very small, so it fits good in a backpack. Just unfold the footprint, done! It dries very quickly. I used it for a year now on many trips and different ground, never had a problem! Quallity is very good, I can recommend it. Full review

Black Diamond Ahwahnee Ground Cloth

A nice, light, durable ground cloth. Sadly, I am too good at leaving these hanging to dry when I head down the road on my bike. :P Not much to say about a ground cloth. This is a good one, but a cheaper one will serve as well.  Full review

Equinox Tyvek Ground Cloth

My sheet of washed and edge-seamed Tyvek with strategic grommets and center flaps acts as ground cloth, rain fly, tarp, bivy, pack cover or poncho. I don't leave home without it. Cut sheet to size of required footprint plus a foot or two on door side if under a tent. Place grommets where poles and stakes would go. Cut and seam openings for head and arms. Tape (Tyvek tape) flaps over head and arm slits. Seam all edges with Tyvek Tape. (Tyvek Tape is lighter than, say, Gorilla Tape, and equally strong.)… Full review
