In 2015 I made a big biking trip from San Diego to St Augustin in Florida. When I was crossing Phoenix, Arizona I bought at the REI store a new tent: a Quarter Dome 2. The tent is stille very fine, but the Rainfly is'nt.
My question: is it possible to order a new rainfly for the tent and send it to me in the Netherlands??
@Eddy thanks for reaching out; sorry to hear the rainfly is no longer fine. Unfortunately, we do not sell the rainfly separately so here are a few alternate options to consider:
- Contact Rainy Pass to inquire about having a new rainfly made for your Quarter Dome 2. We work with Rainy Pass a lot around gear repair and replacement; they use technical fabrics and know our products well.
- Without knowing what's wrong with your current rainfly, there are a number of products that can help with care and repair, like seam sealers and waterproofing.
- While not ideal from a breathability and fit perspective, a last resort might be a tarp.
Hope one of these options helps!
found this on the Rainy Pass website today:
A note about rain flies: We get many inquiries about replacing lost or damaged rain flies. We can repair most problems on a ripped or damaged rain fly, but we CANNOT make you a new rain fly from scratch. We suggest checking out eBay or craigslist to see if you can buy the rain fly for your specific tent model from a private seller.
@Philreedshikes thanks for bringing this to our attention! We'll make sure the REI team knows so we don't send folks to Rainy Pass with a request that isn't feasible.
I think I have the same tent. I lost the pole set once and REI (or somebody) was able to recommend a company that sold replacement sets (thank God), $100++
If I lost the rainfly, I would buy a lightweight tarp with grommets in all corners and just stake it down. There a MANY choices available for extremely lightweight/durable tarps.
The hammock industry is also a great source of this kind of stuff.
My sincere condolences.
Here's a picture of my quarter dome T2 in Iceland last summer.
another question- the instructions say to maintain the zippers beet, shake and clear the dirt off the tent after use and then apply silicone- can you recommend the right silicone product to keep the quarter dome zippers fresh and zippy ?
