Six Moon Design's Polycro footprint is made from ultra strong and ultra light Polycro membrane. Designed for shrink wrap and frequently used as a second thermal layer for windows, this material is exceedingly rugged. While not as durable as Tyvek, it'll provide significant protection and weighs virtually nothing.
Be careful though, this material is so light, it'll blow away in a light breeze. So be sure to weight it down after you spread it out.
This Footprint comes two per pack. So you've got twice the protection
Dimensions: 96" X 40" - 244cm x 102cm

I just used the Polycro footprint on the AT and it held up well to the rocky surface. It is very lightweight and packs up small.
Many other sites sell this, but the shipping time can be exhausting. I got my Deschutes, Serenity, and this footprint just 72 hours after I hit the "Submit Order" button.
I used this footprint with my Lunar Solo tent in dry and windy desert conditions and in a nutshell, I didn’t like it. I found Polycro to be quite tough but extremely slick and very prone to generating static so it attracted grass and other small debris like crazy. This footprint is extremely light so it was difficult to lay down in even the lightest of breezes and almost impossible to fold. I will be substituting it with a Tyvek footprint.
