Show Description

Also known as ground sheets, or sod cloths, footprints protect your tent floor from the wear and tear of rough ground. This footprint, sized to fit the floor of your Tarn 3, won’t channel rain under the tent as a folded tarp can. It also has attachment points around the edges so that you can use webbing or cord to rig it overhead as a small tarp.

In addition to reducing waste by extending the life of your tent, our footprints are also environmentally-friendly because they are made of fabrics left over from our tent factories. Because of this, the footprints will vary in material (nylon or polyester), weave (ripstop or taffeta), and colour (it’s under your tent, so you won’t see it).

  • All fabrics are 70-denier.
  • All fabrics are polyurethane-coated to at least 1800mm of waterproofness.
  • Hardware, trim, and webbing, of similar quality to our tents.

Floor waterproofness

The standard test for coated fabrics uses a standing pipe (column) filled with water. The figures given are the water column height. A 1000mm coating allowed no leaks after 1 minute under 1000mm of water.
