Rated 2 out of 5 by Kisa not so great
I absolutely love the FC2 tent but don't like the footprint at all. It's overpriced, too heavy, and takes away from the weatherproofing of the tent. I found that the footprint sticks out too far past the rain fly and catches rain water which then pools under my tent. I wound up keeping the tent but returning the footprint and using a piece of waterproof house wrap instead. Never had another problem again! The one thing the footprint is great for, though, is setting up the rain fly without the interior tent for dry, bug free winter nights. Can't do that without the BA footprint.
