I bought Kelty Late Start 2 Tent and used it for my 4-day backpacking trip. I was happy with all the features and how easy it was to set up. Love the sleeves for the poles, instead of the grommets, however the downside happened on my second night. The pole ripped the sleeve about 2 inches, I wish there was a warning on the instruction to make sure the poles reach the bottom of the sleeves without touching it.
I wonder if you can suggest or any way to repair it other than putting a duct tape on it. I still like and want to keep it.

@wiwikm, I am so sorry to hear that!! That's a total bummer! Without seeing exactly what's wrong with the tent (although I think I have a good idea based on your description), I have a couple of recommendations for you:
Sorry again that happened to you! I hope a repair can be made to get you back out sleeping under the stars!!
Yes, I did buy it online from REI, in June. I attached a picture of it, the closest store I can go is the one in Vernon Hills, IL.
Appreciate your help, thanks.
