With many of our tents, you can create a functional shelter by using just the fly, the tent poles, and a Footprint (our accessory grommeted sheet that normally serves as protection for your tent’s floor). The resulting structure keeps off the rain, provides a fabric floor, and has tremendous ventilation at a fraction of the weight of the complete tent. The Pitch Light option is especially useful for fast-and-light, mild-weather trips. Some tents may require additional pole bindings at intersections and/or webbing support for struts and brow poles. These items are included in the appropriate Footprint package.
A great accessory for camping. This footprint seems very well made and super durable. Just seems just a touch too big for the tent it was designed for but still very usable without any major problems or alterations. Another great product from Mountain Hardware for sure.. July 19, 2012
Footprint for SkyLedge 3 rips on first use I initially was impressed with a paper like footprint that virtually weighs nothing. I setup the footprint on a trailer pad at a nearby campground. Only after one night and with not much use, I noticed the footprint had a small tear in it about the size of a dime. I looked closely at the ground underneath to see what could of caused the tear, but I was unable to find anything sharp or protruding. I am getting ready for a 7 day extensive backpack trip and I am worried that my tent is going to get wrecked unless I find a different footprint. June 25, 2012
Must Have Great product which provides more functionality to a great tent design. March 19, 2012
Skyledge 3 I spent some time researching tents, I was looking for a 3 season, 3 person tent that would fit our newborn, my wife, my eight year old and the dog (in the vestibule!). I also need a tent that would cut down on weight and be completely water proof should we be caught in a mountain storm. Every other 3 person tent I found weighed considerably more, and I have heard on numoerous occaisons that Mt Hardwear tents are extremely water proof. This tent fit all needs. I look forward to getting it out this summer ! April 20, 2011
