Tyvek: very light weight but protective

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The tent this goes with is crazy lightweight. The fabric is top of the line (as of 2013) but it's a little disturbing how thin it is. You definitely want some kind of ground sheet. This one works just fine but like the tent it is the lightest material possible.
Spun-bonded olefin is literally Tyvek (the special paper stuff you put on a house before the siding), so that gives you an idea of how lightweight this footprint is.
I haven't had trouble with abrasion or water using this footprint.
If you know you're going to really rugged areas you might want to bring a more sturdy footprint from another tent (I fold my 2-person REI footprint in half), but then you lose the weight savings from this tent.
