Tyvek is the original non-woven technology from DuPont. Tyvek is made from high density polyethylene (HDPE) an water resistant, breathable, strong, tear resistant and long lasting.

Lightweight and durable, Tyvek offers extra protection as a tent footprint or can be used as a groundsheet. However it is only sold as water resistant and not waterproof.

Certainly it is light and very durable. I've found this material initially has a slippy smooth surface, but after a few uses, it softens up and loses its stiff characteristics.

If you need extra protection either underneath your shelter or maybe as an extra tarp, then well worth considering.

Both Tyveks groundsheets have four corner tabs for pegging out.

Certainly my experience so far indicates that it is suitable for both uses.

I had read reviews about Tyvek but wasn't quite sure what to expect. Out of the packet it looks like a sheet of paper with an edge, the outer storage pouch had a couple of small holes as well which didn't inspire confidence.
However after using this as a footprint over a weeks backpack has proved these concerns wrong. It hasn't shown any visible wear and proved near waterproof on some pretty damp ground. Would definitely recommend for protecting those silnylon groundsheets. Does anyone have any hints on cleaning it though as the white colour doesn't half show all the sheep muck!

Just as good as I had been lead to expect.

Bought this for bivi and tarp camping on Dartmoor and so far it has been brilliant. I knew it was going to be light, but if I had realised how light I would have bought the double. I usually set up my bivi as a lean-to, and it would have made more sense to have more floor area.

It is tough and strong and I notice none of the rustle that some people complain about. It is, however, pretty slippery so I have a 3mm piece of closed cell foam between it and my bivi, which also keeps me warmer as well as stopping me from sliding around. I am thinking about glueing the two together for ease of use and packing.

Got this as a quick emergency shelter & tent footprint. Very light & compact. Expensive for what it is, but will hopefully lady years.

it's a sheet of tyvek
Monday, 9 November 2015  | 

Already got a double one which is great. Use it to double over my sleeping bag under tarp if showery. However now got a cuben "shower curtain" weighing 20g. Double tyvek is 140g, single + cuben is 110g. Saved 30g to increase my weightweenie rating . Lovely service as ever thanks guys.

Perfect for TT Scarp 1
Tuesday, 21 July 2015  | 

I hadn't encountered any problems in using my Scarp 1 tent without a footprint/groundsheet protector until very recently when pitched on the main ridge of the Berwyns. I was camped on a flat grassy area and was horrified to discover that the grass type had extremely fine pointed tips which had penetrated through the silnylon groundsheet fabric. This incident, prompted a search for a suitable lightweight protector and ultimately led to the purchase of this Luxe version from BPL and have been delighted with the results because of the high qualityof finish while the sizing is ideal for the Scarp 1 with the added bonus of being able to leave it attached to the tent when packing up and therefore, to my mind, represents excellent value for money.
