X-Mid 1P / 2P Groundsheets
Availability: Due to high interest, our 2021 groundsheets sold out in only a few days. We are working on a larger production run but that has been delayed to October 2022 due to covid related supply chain issues. If you would like to get a groundsheet in fall 2022, we recommend signing up below for an email notice. We will email these people in late summer 2022 when we are ready to take orders.
Factory built groundsheets offer greater protection and a cleaner floor for your X-Mid tent.
The stock X-Mid floor is durable enough to last hundreds of nights without a groundsheet when used with care on regular surfaces, but a groundsheet is recommended for camping on harsh surfaces (e.g. rock, gravel) or for users that prefer a greater level of protection.
While many companies are content to sell you a piece of tyvek or a hastily sewn bit of fabric, we think groundsheets should be built to the same high quality standards as the tent. Our groundsheets are built using top of the line custom materials and construction methods. Unlike perhaps any other company, our groundsheets are fully double stitched, use double folded edges (to hide the raw fabric edges), have generous bartacking, and reinforce all of the connection points. Overkill perhaps, but for a negligible weight difference we can make a groundsheet to be proud of.
The fabric is a custom 30D sil/PEU ripstop polyester, which is a step up in durability over the tent floor (20D sil/PEU ripstop polyester) and quite a bit more durable than the disposable tyvek and polycro groundsheets most competitors offer.
As always, ease of use has been carefully considered. These groundsheets are designed to clip right in to either the fly or floor (whichever you prefer) and can be left clipped in place for next time.

The X-Mid groundsheets are the same parallelogram shape as the X-Mid floor. They do not cover the vestibules.
They can clip in to either the fly or to the floor. Clipping it to the four corners of the floor requires removing the cords at two corners and relocating the clips to the corners of the groundsheet. Either way, the groundsheet can be removed upon takedown or left attached for next time.
These groundsheets also have connection points to your trekking pole handles to hold them taut and in position.
