Is it possible to replace tent parts damaged by bears?
My REI CoOp Base Camp 4 tent was recently mauled by local black bears. They tore the rainfly to bits and bent and damaged poles but the ground cloth and the tent itself seem to be in okay shape. My question: is it possible to just buy a new rainfly without having to purchase an all new tent? Can I get more poles?

@Josh_P Thanks for reaching out and we're sorry to hear about your tent!
Unfortunately, we do not have replacement rainflies or tent poles available for our tents. For tent pole repair, we do work with Tent Pole Technologies who offer repair and replacement poles. You can find their information on our Repair Services website. Depending on how damaged the fly is, you may want to reach out to Rainy Pass repair (also on the repair services site) to see if they would be able to fix it for you.
Hopefully this helps, thanks!
