protecting the tent floor, preventing water pooling under tent
Sticks and stones won't hurt your tent's floor.
The Mountain Hardwear Direkt 2 Footprint protects your Dirket2 tent from floor punctures when you're camping on rough ground. Four corner stake points ensure a snug fit to prevent water pooling from heavy downpours.

Good for bad conditions.
Familiarity: I've used it several times
California sucks right now for snow - no use denying it. That being said, I like going as light as possible, and my direkt 2 is awesome. It's a little delicate, so I like to give it a nice blanket for it to sleep on, and increase it's lifespan just a little bit. It's a little sad how much this weights, but since I'm not swimming in money, I'm glad to use it for those times I can't find a snowy ledge to pitch my tent on.
