The footprint groundsheet for the Outwell Monterey 4 is an ideal accessory which will maintain the life of the camping tent. The benefits and features of the Outwell footprint groundsheet are:
* Helps mark out a clear position for erecting the tent
* Ensures the tent is kept cleaner when pitching the tent * Provides additional insulation and waterproofing from damp that can rise upwards from the ground
* Ideal for fully sewn-in groundsheets as they are protected from rough surfaces, stones, etc which will in turn prolong the life of the tent
* Helps to keep the main tent cleaner when packing down as without the footprint, the tent will be wrapped up wet and muddy. Unfortunately this is the perfect breeding ground for mould, which totally ruins further use and enjoyment from your tent
* They can be wrapped up relatively small and then cleaned down and dried when you get home from your camping holiday
|Year of Manufacture||2011|
Polyester – a synthetic fibre, made from polymer units to create a textile fabric. Polyester is the most popular fabric for tent manufacturing, as it is durable, reliable and lighter in weight. Polyester does not breathe though, which creates more condensation.
Polycotton - a blend of polyester and cotton, primarily cotton (usually around 65% cotton / 35% polyester split). Polycotton is a more natural fabric for camping, as it is breathable, far more durable material, reducing the effects of condensation. Offers greater versatility in hot and cold climates.
Ripstop Nylon – a durable material used in tents which is strong and repairable due to its Ripstop properties.

|Poles or Air||
Most tent structure are either Airbeam or Poled in design, both have advantages and disadvantages. Air tents are quicker to pitch, but more expensive when compated to traditional pole style tents. Some tents are hybrids, and combine poles and air technologies.
Fire Retardant – all modern tent fabrics are fire-retardant under EN5912 European Safety Laws. Caution with fire must always be used, as flame retardant fabrics, will still catch fire given the right circumstances.
