Groundsheet Protector Footprint for 6m Bell Tent


An extra layer of protection for your tent groundsheet.
  • Added protection from excessive mud and water
  • Add a layer of insulation to your tent
  • Keep your groundsheet cleaner and drier, useful when packing away
  • Can be used as a replacement for a Standard Bell Tent groundsheet

The groundsheet protector footprint provides an extra protective layer that helps keep your Bell Tent's groundsheet cleaner and dryer, which can extend the life of your tent. It really comes into its own when your pitch is wet and muddy, and it's much easier to clean the protector when you get home rather than the whole tent. This extra layer avoids direct contact with the ground, which helps keep the base of the tent clean and can provide some insulation from the cold floor in cooler weather. Overall, a groundsheet protector is a wise investment for any Bell Tent owner.

Easy to install

Available with or without eyelets, the protector fits perfectly underneath the footprint of your Bell Tent. To install, pick your pitch spot and lay out the protector with the long side (the door) facing the desired direction.

If you have the version with the eyelets, peg the footprint in place using a couple of your tent's ground pegs until you get the tent unrolled on top of it. Now erect your Bell Tent on top of the protector without direct contact with the muddy ground. Once you've erected the tent on top of it, swap the pegs used on the protector out for your tent as they are no longer needed to hold it down.

If you have the version without eyelets, you don’t need to worry about pegging it down. Once the tent is on top of it, the weight of the tent will keep it in place.

Replacement Groundsheet for our 6 metre Standard Bell Tents

Our Groundsheet Protector Footprint can also be used as a replacement groundsheet for our 6 metre Standard Bell Tents, which come with a separate, lightweight, pegged-in groundsheet.

Please note: You must get the version with eyelets if you are replacing a Standard Groundsheet, but either version works well as a protector.

Kept the groundsheet dry

Last year i stupidly went camping with just a groundsheet and the tent. The groundsheet got ruined and had to be replaced. When I bought a new one I came across this and thought it would solve my problem. It was easy to fit and helped keep my new groundsheet clean and dry
