This floor protector adds a comfortable, highly durable and insulating layer to your tent floor. Definitely more of a luxury item but well worth it if weight isn't an issue.
Big Agnes says:
Think of this as a footprint for the inside of your tent. Snap it in place where you want it and add a little extra insulation, soft layer, and protector for your tent floor. Perfect if you have a dog that sleeps in your tent and you want to keep the floor abrasion free. Use it outside your tent as a highly water-resistant barrier between you or your gear and wet grass, sand, dirt, you name it. This ultra-versatile blanket packs down into its own pocket and can travel wherever you need it to go.

Big Agnes' Tent Floor Protector works like an internal footprint. It provides a serious amount of protection and adds durability to your tent floor which is especially useful if you have a lightweight tent with thin fabric. Obviously, at this weight the floor protector is best suited to use at basecamp but that is likely when it is most effective too. It has adds another layer of water resistance to your tent with a durable, water resistant nylon base under a soft, comfortable upper that makes things much quieter in the tent. It also provides a decent amount of insulation which is certainly nice when you're not sat on an insulated sleeping mat, so it does make the tent warmer overall.
It has a much better packsize than expected and although the weight is a bit of an issue for backpacking, the benefits in terms of adding durability, comfort and insulation are pretty impressive if you are after a bit of luxury. The protector has 10 snap patches to allow you to fix it in place inside your tent. There are also adjustable hooks in the corners to keep it in place when you're using the tent too. Be sure to check the dimensions of your Big Agnes tent as this comes in two sizes with this being the smaller one at 58 x 90" or 147 x 229cm.
