One of the reasons I got this tent was for the dry pitch (mainly so I could set up the tent using just the fly and mat when I wanted a lighter pack). However the footprint does not have a clip to hook the poles into so that they will stay up. I'm not sure if this is a flaw, or if there is some other way of doing it. I may see if I can order the same plastic clips that are on the canopy and switch them out on the footprint. This is on the Drifter 2.

leap67513. You should be able to unclip the "Jake's Foot" from which ever element of the tent you aren't going to take with you (the canopy in your example above) and re-clip it in to the footprint. That's how it is designed. I hope this info helps!
