Perrin Allen wrote a review of The North Face Tadpole 23 Footprint on November 30, 2009
Anyone that does serious camping should always invest in a matching footprint. Although I think stuff like this should be included with most tents, this is definitely an essential when purchasing the tadpole tent. The footprint matches the tent perfectly, and adds the second protective layer against rocks and other outdoor debris. There is really no reason not to invest in the footprint. The extra money will increase the tent's lifespan for many more years.
