Groundhog Tent Stakes

rated 3.5 of 5 stars These strong, triangle shaped stakes are easy to drive into hardened surfaces and easy to remove when breaking camp. Love the attached reflective pull cords. They instantly upgrade your equipment the from steel stakes They came standard with purchase of my MSR Hubba-Hubba tent. These babies are as advertised. light and efficient. Held tent securely in wind gusts of 40+ mph. They are strong as long as you aren't hammering them into hidden ledge rock, in which case they will bend. Over time, I have… Full review

Groundhog Tent Stakes

rated 5 of 5 stars Ditch those cheap stakes that came with your tent, and replace them with these bomber stakes! If you've ever bought a tent, you know the drill. You open it up and they've got those cheap wire stakes which are a waste of time. After one or two uses, they may be bent so badly you can't even use them. The stakes in the picture below came came with my new REI Camp Dome 2, and this was their condition after two uses. The ground wasn't that hard, and they still didn't hold up. Ditch those old stakes,… Full review

DragonFly

rated 5 of 5 stars Three times a day, every day for four years. This is how every product should be made. We are fortunate to live an unusual life on the road.

It simmers beautifully yet produces a roaring flame when melting snow. It burns a variety of fuels so there is no difficulty… Full review

PocketRocket

rated 5 of 5 stars A reliable lightweight workhorse of a backpacking stove. This stove works every time. It is reliable. It is so easy to set up—just screw it on to an isobutane container and you're ready to go. I don't even bother with any additional stand. There is no piezo igniter, so you must use a fire steel, lighter or match. The flame is adjustable and works great from simmer to full blast. With my GSI Soloist kit or my simple camp cup the cooking is easy and the boil time less than 3 minutes for 2-4 cups… Full review

DragonFly

rated 4.5 of 5 stars After having my isobutane become unusable at temperatures below -30° C., I purchased this stove for winter trips. It is loud but there is a reason for that and that is it is creating huge amounts of heat. The MSR Draonfly has been around for years. It is a tried and true expedition stove. It works on multiple different fuels from white gas, jet fuel, diesel, kerosene and gasoline. It will work in all temperatures and at all altitudes.  I bought the stove after struggling in colder temperatures… Full review
