Nigor have called this product a Footprint for the WickiUp 3 when in fact its a full Bathtub floor with 22cm walls all around the perimeter - so rather then the usual use for a footprint to go under a tent this can replace the full inner tent of the WickiUp for a lighter weight option where insect protection in not needed.
Please note that the footprint available is a Burnt Orange colour, not the Green.
Nigor says: The footprint Wicki Up 3 can be used as a flat footprint to protect the innertent floor from rocks and sharp twigs. The footprint can also be used instead of the innertent as a bathtub floor. In this way you can reduce the pack weight.
The Nigor Bathtub Floor for the WickiUp gives you an even lighter and more spacious single skin shelter option where protection from insects is not necessary.
In addition you can convert a pair of trekking poles for the main support (saving the weight of the pole) using a pole extender. In this configuration you are only carrying a measly 1310g for a spacious three person shelter that you can stand up in!
Nigor has specified a 10000mm hydrostatic head groundsheet, so the need for an additional 'footprint' is marginal - the fact that the 'footprint' is actually a full bathtub floor makes a lot more sense.
