Protecting Your Investment: The Obsidian Footprint. Heavy Duty Floor Protection for your Obsidian Camping Shelter

When it comes to camping gear, few things are as essential as a reliable tent. Your tent is your sanctuary in the wilderness, providing shelter, comfort, and peace of mind during your outdoor adventures. If you're the proud owner of the Obsidian from RDS Gear or a Shiftpod, you already know what it means to have a top-tier shelter by your side. But did you know that there's an accessory that can enhance your tent's performance and longevity, and it's compatible with both the Obsidian Tent and Shiftpods? Allow us to introduce you to the Obsidian Tent Footprint – the guardian of your outdoor investment.
What is a Tent Footprint?

Before we dive into the benefits of the Obsidian Tent Footprint, let's clarify what it is. A tent footprint is a ground cover designed to fit perfectly beneath your tent. It acts as a protective barrier between the tent floor and the ground, safeguarding your tent against wear and tear, moisture, and other potential hazards.

Why Choose the Obsidian Tent Footprint?

Extended Tent Lifespan: Your Obsidian shelter is built to endure rugged conditions, but it can't do it alone. By adding the footprint, you create an extra layer of defense against sharp rocks, sticks, and abrasive ground surfaces. This simple addition can significantly extend the lifespan of your tent, ensuring it accompanies you on countless adventures.

Moisture Prevention: Moisture is a common adversary in the outdoors. The Obsidian Tent Footprint acts as a moisture barrier, preventing water from seeping through the tent floor. This is especially valuable when camping on damp or rainy terrain.

Easy Cleanup: After a day of exploration, the last thing you want to deal with is a dirty or muddy tent. The footprint makes cleaning up a breeze. Simply shake off or wipe away dirt and debris from the easily washable material, and your tent's interior stays clean and comfortable.

Added Insulation: In cooler weather, the footprint provides an extra layer of insulation between you and the ground. This helps keep the interior of your tent warmer, ensuring a cozy night's sleep.

Custom Fit: The Obsidian Footprint is tailored to fit your Obsidian or Shiftpod perfectly. It's designed to match the dimensions of both tents, so you don't have to worry about extra material or ground covers that are too small.

Easy Setup and Storage

Attaching the Obsidian Footprint is a straightforward process. Simply lay it out on the ground, position your tent on top, and secure both together. It's just as easy to remove when you're ready to pack up and head to your next destination. The footprint is made of heavy-duty vinyl and folds neatly into its own vinyl carry bag, taking up minimal space.

Enhance Your Outdoor Experience

When you invest in quality camping gear like the Obsidian or Shiftpods, it's only natural to want to protect that investment. The Obsidian Footprint is the unsung hero of your camping gear lineup, shielding your tent from the elements and prolonging its life. It's a small addition that can make a world of difference in your camping experience.
