I got this along with my Copper Spur UL2. I thought it was a good idea to get this to protect the floor of my tent. I would much rather put a hole in this, rather than in the floor of my brand new tent. This only adds about 5 oz. to the tent weight still keeping it under four pounds which is still incredibly light. Its a little pricey for a footprint. But i would recommend it to anyone who has a Copper Spur and wants to protect there tent.
I purchased this in addition to the copper ul4 2011 version. I find the fly to be quite expensive and very flimsy. This, of course, is to save weight; however, the fly appears to possibly not perform under really wet conditions that I have seem yet in this dry year.
That said, the BA system requires the use of a footprint in order to lock into the rain fly. It also is part of the system that makes this tent so strong when fully assembled.
I plan to use a poly tarp under it during times of potential rain and during winter. Redundant but the floor serves a purpose beyond being simply a footprint.
I bought this footprint for my Copper Spur UL2 tent and like the other reviewer said, it's kinda loose fitting and falls off if I move the tent. Also it's quite pricy so not sure if it's worth buying.
