This Terra Nova Footprint will help protect the bottom of your tent when camping on rocky terrain. It's designed to fit the Terra Nova Solar Competition 2, the Solar Photon 2 and the Solar Ultra 2 tents. 

Terra Nova says:

Footprints offer extra protection against sharp objects as well as keeping the tent underside clean and covering the porch area. Terra Nova footprints are sized to fit the footprint of the tent exactly, fitting under the inner tent and over the exposed porch area, and attach to the tent pole feet with shockcord loops to keep them in place. This ensures the weight penalty is kept to a minimum while providing extra durability.

Useful if you know that you're going to be camping on rocky and unforgiving ground.

I wouldn't use it as a rule, more the exception when I know the grounds going to be tough.

Great little tent, but only partially self supporting

Terra Nova have produced a super lightweight tent which I have tested for daily usuage over the past few months in monsoon rain, high altitude thunderstorms in the Tibetan mountains and in dry sandy deserts. It's not partially spacious, but two can fit in with an intimate squeeze. Due to the design with the single pole attached via only one position at the rear it doesn't withstand high winds even when fully pegged out. But, it's super waterproof so even if the tent collapses on you during the night it keeps you relatively dry in heavy rain.

Negatives: firstly the superlight groundsheet is not particularly durable. Of course this is a compermise with ultralight gear. I regret not using a groundsheet with the development of a few small holes after only a few months usage. Secondly the tent is not fully freestanding. The flysheet needs pegging out at the rear otherwise it would only be attached via the eyelets at the front and the outer layer would be left to flap around and come off.

Great in terms of waterproofing, ventilation and weight.
