You don’t need to bring a rake with you just to protect the bottom of your Rock 32 tent from sticks and stones. Pack The North Face Rock 32 Footprint instead (it’s much more compact and won’t poke you in the eye). This footprint can also be used for fly-only pitching on hot summer camping trips.

Extend the life of your tent

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

This footprint may not be anything special, but it does serve a purpose. It will keep ground moisture from entering your tent through the floor over extended stays in damp wet areas. It also provides excellent protection from anything that may rip or tear the bottom of your tent. Sure you can leave it behind if you need to save weight for a long hike, but the life this will add to your tent by protecting the floor is awesome. It will keep the bottom from getting holes in it, which is typically the first area of a tent to wear thin from use. It is also nice that you can use this for the fast pitch option and save weight by leaving the tent body behind.



  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

This ground cloth works really well- drug it through the ringer the first time we took it out and everything stayed dry. Seemed just a touch too big. I'm a camper- ground flys don't cover vestibules, it just seemed a little big so I switched the stack order on the pole and problem solved


Not sure its worth the $$

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The Rock 32 footprint is light weight and compact. However, it doesn't cover the vestibules. If you're concerned about size and weight, use it. If size and weight aren't a concern I'd say use a tarp large enough to cover the vestibule floors.

A tent's vestibule area is often used for cooking with backpacking stoves--the tent flap open--during inclimate weather. In doing this the last thing you want under the stove is plastic. If you're concerned about gear storage, buy a tent to accommodate the space you need or bring a piece of tyvek.

doesnt go past the tent into the the covered gear protection areas which is weird and annoying. really thin but worked fine.


Also perfect for Roadrunner 33

    This footprint works as designed. It can also be used for TNF Roadrunner 33 tent(2009+), which is what we have.


    Seems a bit big

      It's great to have a footprint to extend the life of your tent, but this one doesn't seem to fit well. The actual materiel is the right size, but the metal rings for sticking the tent poles in seem to be too far out to be that useful. They are attached to elastic loops and extend further out than those on the fly or inner tent. Effectively the poles don't hold the ground sheet down, it's just the weight of the tent. Perhaps this is more useful when just doing a fly pitch. Still, it doesn't make the ground sheet useless, but I can't quite work out why it was designed like this, hence four stars.

      Does the footprint cover just the floor...

      Does the footprint cover just the floor of the tent, or does it cover the vestibule area as well?

      Best Answer

      Just the floor of the tent.

      Best Answer

      I found the weight for this listed at 12oz, though I don't think that includes the little carrying bag.


      its a footprint

        It's a footprint, it folds up to the size of a rolled up T-shirt, its water proof and will protect the tent investment you just made. Fits perfect to the 32 tent.
