    Here in the hot desert we can get away with no floor quite often. even if I have my tent I usually have my tarp up as a shade anyway. I just like the versatility.
    I don't have much, but I do have passion. Land, Air, Sea, HUNT!

    I use a hammock all summer while guiding in Canada, but just ordered a 2X Kuiu tent for out west hunting. I have two floorless shelters; a Granite Gear tarpent (1#) and the 8 man Kifaru teepee (7 1/2#). In both cases I bring a light space blanket to keep me out of the dirt or snow. The teepee is great for three guys and late season when you can use the stove. I bring the tarpent along to spike out from our base camp. The only real issue we've had is my brother getting the crap scared out of him when a mountain mole/gopher critter came up out of the ground right next to his face. When I go solo, I will probably stick with the Kuiu, but I'll just have to try it out first.

    If you pitch a floorless in the right spot water won't come in. Just like a floor will get soaked through if pitched in a depression.

    You can also pitch them steep with tent material to the ground. I use a go lite shelter and a cheap space blanket for floor insulation.

    In the past I have carried and used a floorless MSR shelter when I would hike in too far and didn't want to back out. I've only "intentionally" used them a couple times and they have been absolutely fine. It was not having a sleeping pad that always kicks my a@@. Waking up cold is ok; waking up stiff, sore and cold really stinks.
    For me, the lightweight options such as those from Big Agnes are pretty darn nice...especially when my wife has a definite preference for no "creepy crawly's" (or is it crawlies)
