A footprint is a heavy duty nylon piece that is placed underneath the floor of a tent. A footprint is used to protect the floor of your tent from sharp rocks and obstacles. A footprint will lengthen the life of your tent and is a wise investment with any tent. They can also be used as a temporary shelter with tent poles for ultra light camping.
