Use of a groundsheet depends on the conditions you expect to encounter and your style of camping. The sewn-in flooring is remarkably tough and does not usually require a separate groundsheet.

For use on very rocky ground and desert conditions where puncture wounds are possible, a groundsheet is recommended.
