A footprint is always a good idea as it marks out intended pitching position. The Clader 600 Footprint is easy to move around before rolling out the tent to pitch. It also protects the groundsheet of the tent from stones, thorns and other hazards.
The tent groundsheet will be kept clean so it's easier to pack up camp and saves time. With a durable 100% PE construction that will last and is easy to clean and folds away into compact carry bag, Vango have done well.
