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 simple 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 sil/PEU ripstop 20D polyester, which is quite a bit nicer and smaller packing than tyvek while being much more durable than polycro groundsheets.
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).
During setup, there is no need to worry about which side should be the top side because if you have it upside down the shape won’t match the floor (it will be angled the opposite way). Simply layout the groundsheet so the shape matches the floor.
The groundsheets for the regular and Solid series tents have cords which clip to the four corners of the fly. These cords can be removed to clip the groundsheet to the corners of the floor instead if you prefer. Clipping to the fly gives the option to use the tent without the inner, while clipping to the floor saves the weight of the cords. The groundsheet for the Pro tents (X-Mid Pro 1, X-Mid Pro 2) only clip to the corners of the floor since the inner cannot be removed. 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.
The X-Mid 1 groundsheet works with all years of tents (2019 – present). It was oversized for the original v1 floor, so it continues to work well with the larger v2 floor. The X-Mid Pro 1 also shares this floor size and can use this groundsheet as well if you shorten the corner lines to fit the smaller Pro fly, but we recommend ordering the Pro 1 groundsheet for that tent.
In summer 2022 we released the v2 of the X-Mid 2 which has the same sized floor as the original 2P but the fly fits more closely around it (smaller fly footprint). As such, we updated the groundsheet to have shorter cords to clip properly into the now smaller fly while keeping the actual groundcloth the same size.
While we no longer offer groundsheets for the original X-Mid 2 (2020 – spring 2022) the cords can be lengthened on the v2 groundsheet to work with the original tents. All you have to do is add 5″ to each of the two long cords.
X-Mid Pro 1
The X-Mid Pro 1 groundsheet is identical to the regular X-Mid 1 groundsheet except instead of cords to clip into the fly it just has clips right at the corners and clips to the floor instead. This is ideal for the Pro 1 as it saves grams. This groundsheet can also be used for the regular X-Mid 1 by clipping to the floor corners but you’d have to add cords if you want to do a fly + groundsheet pitch.
X-Mid Pro 2
The X-Mid Pro 2 groundsheet is a few inches narrower than the regular X-Mid 2 groundsheet and clips to the floor corners instead of having cords to clip to the fly corners. These work with all 2022 and 2023 X-Mid Pro 2 tents.
If these are sold out and you are in a hurry to get a groundsheet you can use the regular X-Mid 2 groundsheet instead. It is identical except for being a few inches wider and the connecting cords are about 5″ longer. By shortening the cords 5″ it will work fine inside an X-Mid Pro 2.
