MSR Groundhog Tent Stake

rated 4.5 of 5 stars These stakes do a nice job staying secure in the ground due to the design. They are also very light and easy to remove with the attached loop of cord. They are much better than the factory stakes that come with most tents. Do yourself and your tent a favor and purchase the MSR Groundhog Tent Stakes. These stakes are very easy to secure in the ground due to the design. They seem to cling to the earth much better than your typical tent stake. The bright red color and reflective coating on the cable… Full review

MSR Mini Groundhog Stake

rated 4.5 of 5 stars For their smaller size (6”), these stakes are deceptively strong and lightweight. While a dollar more expensive than other aluminum stakes, a few of these will go a long way holding down any tent, tarp, or even recreational equipment. I have encountered no problems in the slightly sandy/red clay/compact soil of central and western N.C. I originally didn’t have any thought to review these MSR Mini Groundhog stakes as they were part of a tent I purchased. The Hubba Hubba NX comes with a pack of… Full review

Toughstake Large Toughstake

rated 5 of 5 stars Toughstakes were designed for use in snow, sand, and other loose ground. They worked very well in my tests in snow. Anchoring a tent in an area of high winds is a problem encountered by most backpackers and virtually all high-altitude, winter, and polar expeditions. There are many solutions, some more satisfactory than others. I have not seen the Toughstakes in stores. But they can be ordered online from http://www.toughstake.com/ Background All tents should be anchored when pitched, perhaps “free-standing”… Full review

MSR Groundhog Tent Stake

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Small tent stakes best for lightweight backpacking. Powerful for such a small package, but sharpness of points and tips makes for challenging packing. We used these stakes for a 10-day backpacking trip. They were great because they were light, but they were sharp to a fault. The tips of the stakes ripped the tent bag, and eventually the sides of the stakes started to rip the bag too. They are also very sharp on the tip that extends out of the ground and I had a painful lesson when I stepped on one. Full review

DAC J-stake

rated 4 of 5 stars Just like you'd bend a SAM splint to make it stronger, DAC figured out that bending a stake in the middle makes it that much stronger. Hard (if not impossible) to bend, and easy to clean. Anytime I have a job that requires stakes, these are my number one choice and my standby. I use them exclusively with all my TNF tents. I even like these enough to have a spare set of ten around, just in case I need extra, or a friend does. If you've pitched, borrowed, or owned a tent from the North Face, you already… Full review

MSR Groundhog Tent Stake

rated 5 of 5 stars Lightweight, strong tent stake with good holding power. A tent stake is a low-key, basic item that just needs to work. These do.  A tent stake is a lowly item that just needs to address some very basic issues: Easy to drive into the ground; Stays put when in the ground; Easy to remove from the ground; Light and small enough to be carried; ...yet durable enough to do its job when replacements are not readily available. With such a basic list of requirements, you'd think that this would be an easy… Full review

MSR Groundhog Tent Stake

rated 5 of 5 stars Great tent stakes! These are my go-to tent stakes. Very solid aluminum. I have used these stakes for over 4 years now and have not bent one yet.  They are still straight and solid.  The tops of the stakes get banged up a bit from using rocks to slam them into the ground, but that is to be expected.   I highly recommend replacing the cheesy stakes that come with most tents with these ones.   Full review

Sierra Designs J Stake

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Lightweight, strong stakes. I have enjoyed the DAC j-stakes that came with my Nemo Losi 3P tent for the last 2 years. These are the same just sold by Sierra Designs. They are lightweight, strong, durable and functional. I grabbed these for the extra guy lines on my tent. This isn't really a negative, but they don't come with the cord loops so you will need to add those yourself if you want to be able to more easily pull these out of the ground. I added the cord and they are ready for use. Full review

MSR Groundhog Tent Stake

rated 5 of 5 stars The MSR Groundhog Tent Stake is a lightweight, reliable stake that holds in all, but the softest of soils. It has held my hammock tarp in extremely high winds. I purchased these over a year ago, after camping in everything but deep snow, I am doubtful another stake can beat the combine quality and weight of these stakes. My Grand Trunk Funky Forest Tarp is like a sail in high winds. The only time these stakes have not held was in high winds, camping in a pine forest, were the soil was more pine… Full review
