I decided to add the Akto footprint to my already excellent tent. I've just used it on a 5 day canoeing trip in Sweden, where we changed camp every night. Its a great addition to the tent. Firstly the build quality is very good, it fits without any issues. There are nice simple design touches such as the toggles to attach the footprint which are red. They attach through the same loops as the inner tent, which has black toggles. This made life easier when I had to remove the inner tent when packing it down wet. On the dry days I left the inner tent and footprint all attached, quick and easy to pack down and set up as one unit. It added extra protection to the sewn in groundsheet. Mine has pin holes in it, although it doesn't leak it will prevent further damage. Finally it makes a clean/dry area in the vestibule, I could keep my pack, boots etc dry and of the ground. It also extended the 'living' area inside made it easier to have the inner fly rolled back in the pouring rain. I know people have concerns about adding weight and volume, but it is negligible it certainly made no difference to me. A worthwhile addition to the Akto tent. Great service from Woodlore quick delivery to France.
