Terra Nova Titanium 1g Skewer Pegs

rated 2 of 5 stars An over-specialized bit of gear that works for limited applications or hard-core ultralighters under certain conditions, but overall probably not worth the money. This is a review of the Terra Nova 1g Titanium Skewers. I am not connected to Terra Nova in any way, and I purchased the product retail. These titanium skewers come in a pack of six. They are essentially “micro stakes”—very small, thin, and ultralight titanium stakes. And while they might be good for a few specialized uses, overall… Full review

DAC J-stake

rated 5 of 5 stars The stakes of ultimate choice for most smaller tents (1-2P). They are lightweight, quite strong and durable, endure careful hammering and may be equipped with cord loops. Of course, such stakes are not designed for sandy soil and for large tents. DAC J-Stakes are blue, yellow, and silver in this photo I’ve been actively using these pegs since 2012, since four of my tents were equipped with them: MSR Hoop Big Agnes Seedhouse SL2 Hilleberg Kaitum 3 Fjallraven Abisko Lite 3 I also purchased a spare… Full review

MSR ToughStake

rated 3 of 5 stars The odds strongly favor the possibility that the manufacturer of the awesome bomb-shelter tent you bought skimped on the stakes to save cost and weight. Therefore you'll be needing a few more decent ones to get the job done. Consider these if your winter trips (or sand camping I assume) tend to be in pack-able snow.  MSR Toughstake I tested these stakes along with a four-season MSR Remote 2 tent.  Regular stakes do practically NOTHING for you in snow when the wind comes. If you are in deep snow… Full review

Tentsile X3 Giant Pegs

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Tentsile's Giant Pegs are a quick and easy solution to placing stakes in hard soil when a rock or hammer is not readily available. This reviewer found these pegs so handy, he is left wondering why screw-in tent stakes are not more common. Recently, I tested and reviewed the Tentsile Flite for Trailspace. While I did not care much for that product, I did find the stakes that came with it to be superior to the cheap J-stakes that normally come with a tent or tarp. In fact, I felt these X3 Giant… Full review

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Sucks. All awful. Never waste the money. Full review

Vargo Titanium Ascent Tent Stake

rated 2 of 5 stars Titanium tent stakes. Not good for high winds. Purchased these tent stakes for my boyfriend for Christmas. I was excited to get them in Titanium. First use was great! However, we set up the tents in the yard to air them out and it was slightly windy. These stakes not only didn't stay in the ground, but they bent and twisted as well. Very disappointed in them and they were not cheap either. Full review

Toughstake Large Toughstake

rated 1 of 5 stars Does not work in dirt, way too expensive, waste of time and money. Takes way too long to put into the ground. I am an experienced camper and the Toughstake was just like any other stake that I have used. I blew my money on this thing and I hope that it stops you from making the same mistake that I did. I made a homemade bowl stake and it worked 100% better. Full review

Vargo Titanium Ascent Tent Stake

rated 1.5 of 5 stars These stakes bend easily. My girlfriend made last Christmas a titanium Christmas. One of the presents I received were Vargo Titanium Ascent tent stakes. I was delighted to find them in my stocking and I was amazed at how light they were. Unfortunately my first experience using them was in moderately high winds for east Texas and my tent collapsed due to the stake bending. I easily straightened it out and continued using the stake for the remainder of my trip, but I have gone back to the aluminum… Full review

Atak Outdoor Lighted Tent Stakes

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Okay, I admit...lighted tent stakes are a bit silly. But for those of us who are nocturnally visually challenged, they are an easy technique to avoid tripping over tent lines, rocks, or stumps during dark hours. They also provide a nice little glowing ambiance to the tent site! I had seen lighted tent stakes in an outdoors magazine, and thought it was kind of a neat idea…but did not want to invest too much money, since I was not sure how much I would actually use them, nor how long they would… Full review
