Hi, I bought a MLD shelter off someone on this forum a few days ago and they forgot to inform me that the apparent "condition is very good" had one of the tie out areas on one corner having an inch or so rip in a fairly critical point imo
The shelter is made out of spinntex, and other than the stuff sack theres no spare material to make a patch of sorts and I don't want to make a pigs ear out of it as I'm not a seamstress. I can see what I need to do but it's not going to be a true perfect finish and am concerned about taughtness
Any tips plse?
Not good, and i'd be asking for an explanation.
As for repair, i'm sure Mrs Nesbit could advise you.
Edit: Stephen beat me to it.

Thanks for the support all.
Asking for the money back is probably the best idea, I wouldn't have bought it with an issue tbh. Paid by paypal what I feel is a decent price for a spinn MLD patrol of £83 including delivery and then find out the guy works literally 100 metres away from me. He dropped it off - after 3 days.
Have let him know but he hasn't logged in and checked his message yet - how do I know if he has ?
Or do you think £83 is a decent price and I should just keep it and tape / fix it ?
Were you thinking of bodging it with this stuff? Might do it for a while but how much would you trust it? I'd want a full refund or at least reimbursement for a good repair job. Be interesting to hear the seller's side of the tale.
I recently responded to a private sale on here to buy a tent. We agreed a price - it was a good bargain from my point of view, then the seller withdraw as 'a mate had offered a lot more'. That was after we had shaken hands (albeit virtually) on the deal. I was surprised that someone on here could act in such a way.
Good luck - keep us posted!
Well Ben, I personally wouldn't sell to a complete stranger unless I knew the condition 100% of the gear I was selling.
I never mentioned your username, I was seeking advice on how to repair it.
I'll take you up on your offer of a full refund and will drop it off soon. In all fairness to the shelter it's actually had alot of use if going by the dyneema has anything to do with it.
Ben, not my problem i know but no damage has been done here imo as you've "owned up" to the mistake on the forum and done the right thing, that being the case i can't see why anyone would hold it against you, quite the opposite i'd think as future buyers will know if they have any issue you're willing to sort it.
That's my view anyway.
