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

Lawson Equipment Titanium Tent Stake

rated 5 of 5 stars Strong and light best describe my favorite tarp stakes. As a hammock guy knowing the tarp is secure is a great feeling. And with these titanium sheppard hooks with most Southeast soils these stakes will hold your tarp tight. These babies are tuff too, not one has been bent even with stepping on them to drive them home. Weighing in at a whopping 6.25 grams or .22 oz. each I can carry six of these and barely break an oz., and at 6.25 inches they aren't taking up noticeable space in your pack. And… Full review

MSR Carbon-Core Stake Kit

rated 2 of 5 stars Too fragile. I used these stakes twice before one of them broke. Surprisingly it didn't break while driving it into the ground. I had difficulty removing the stakes from the ground, and one of them broke as I wiggled it side-to-side attempting to loosen it. The end of the stake is still in the ground in the Sierra Nevada. Full review

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
