Could be much better
Sunday, 7 October 2018  | 

I love my Hex tent but this ground sheet is a bit of a let down. I don't understand why Luxe decided to size the footprint to cover two thirds of the floor, rather than half like the standard mesh inner. The consequence is that there is very little weight saved compared to the mesh, you loose the large cooking space which is one of the best features of the Hex, and, perhaps most problematic, the central pole has to go on top of the groundsheet, meaning that you can't properly tension the tent before clipping in the floor. This would be a significant issue in strong winds. I have given it two stars as it could be a good footprint for a large tarp.

Response:

Hard to answer this one. Most people are happier with a slightly larger footprint than the single inner, however I will pass onto Luxe your comment about no weight saved.

As for the pole being 'on' the groundsheet, we always recommend people use half a tennis ball at each end of the pole to spread the weight and prevent the pole sinking under tension. That or a motorcyle side stand plate, which does the same job.

This then allows you to 'pull back' the extra groundsheet and reveal a larger cooking space.

I've used this set up for 2 weeks in poor weather in Scotland and never had the pole sink, so it is worth keeping in mind as a solution for this and another other groundsheet uses.

Not just for Hex tents

Purchased 22/10/2017 received 24/10/2017. to be used as a groundsheet for a Duo Tarp setup in a cave configuration. Used for the first time 27-28/10/17 performed brillantly. Well made durable piece of kit and great value for money The service from backpackinglight.co.uk was fast and first class as always.

A definite for bushcrafters

I found the inner tent just a little to confined for my liking this bucket footprint gives a larger space and a lighter load if you can pitch between trees then frankly your swimming in space with the footprint.
Just for a size idea I'm 6,1 there's head room length ways believe if you sleep with your knees up your get in side ways as well.
Highly recommend to all bushcrafters and light weight nerds out there.
