shadeypines wrote a review of Kelty Mantra 7 Footprint on July 23, 2003
While the footprint provided outstanding ground coverage and kept us dry through a rain storm that caused a puddle underneath the tent, it was rather confusing at first. Our Mantra tent is new to us this year. Figuring out how the footprint should be attached to the tent was a challenge WITHOUT any instructions. We still don't know whether the foot print should be staked out or not. If so, which makes sense since there are loops, no stakes were included with the purchase. That fact alone left doubt as to stake or not to stake. Attachment of the footprint to already full pole rings is a challenge too. With the rain fly clasps and thick aluminum poles, attaching the footprint is a difficult task. We are impressed with the performance, very disappointed in the logistics of use and lack of adequate instructions for use.
