Description Use this ultralight ground cloth to substitute or protect your tent floor. This foot print is also used with our tarp shelters.
This product is designed with the hiker in mind to keep the weight off your back and dirt off your sleeping bag.
It is constructed from industrial grade cross-linked polyolefin. What this means is that it is extremely tough for its weight with amazing puncture resistance and economical to boot!

These ground cloths are absolutely clear, so you can see if you missed any pebbles or pine cones after you put your ground cloth down. It would also serve well as a solar still in an emergency situation. This stuff is amazingly tough for it's weight, and can help shave those last few grams off your pack weight.

Note: Since these sheets are made from shrink film they will shrink slightly when exposed to extreme heat.

Surprisingly DurableReview by richard
More durable than expected, lasted through a 2 month thru-hike, gotta like the low weight and low volume. Still use occasionally for overnights. Medium fits under a BA Fly Creek 2 perfectly. (Posted on 11/6/15)
ExcellentReview by Anish
Even though it looks like saran wrap these are incredibly durable. I used one medium cloth the entire PCT in 2013 (and kept using it for 2 more years until I gave it to someone). It does the job and weighs pretty much nothing. (Posted on 7/22/15)
