Footprints for ground protection beneath tents. Available for all Exped tent models. A footprint protects a tent floor from abrasion, dirt and humidity. Shaped like (but 10 cm/4“ smaller than) the tent floor to prevent rain from collecting between footprint and tent floor. Also covers the vestibule floor space to protect the vestibule from dirt and humidity.
Attaches with adjustable elastic cords. Combine footprint and rainfly to travel extra light! A footprint doubles as a tarp against rain wind and sun (that is against excessive exposure to UV radiation) .
Useful if you know that you're going to be camping on rocky and unforgiving ground. Seems a bit heavier than expected, not built to be very lightweight with hefty webbing etc.
I wouldn't use it as a rule, more the exception when I know the grounds going to be tough. Corsica's GR20 would be a good example.
In the case of the Gemini tents the footprint can also be used to create a fast and light shelter - which looks extremely good.
