    Despite their light weight, these stakes will stand being hammered into rocky ground. If they get bent, they can be hammered stright.

    As a long distance trekker, I have little tolerance for gear that cannot take hard use. Got these stakes as a light weight alternative to my MSR groundhogs for a 200 mile hike/packraft across Gates of the Arctic National Park in Alaska. Boy did I regret that purchase...it was a waste of money, that turned into a potential safety/survival issue. These stakes might be ok if you're pitching a tent on soft soil in a campground, but they do not stand up to wilderness use. The notch at the neck is a weak point that cannot take any hammering; half the stakes either bent or broke at that point. Ended up using sharpened driftwood sticks and river stones to anchor my pyramid tarp. If you want completely reliable tent stakes, go for the MSR groundhogs, they are a little heavier but almost indestructible.

    I bought these to replace my heavier aluminum hook stakes that came with my light backpacking tent and used these instead to save weight and found it to be a big mistake!!!! After just a few days the top of these stakes started to bend at the top near the knotches that hold the tent straps. I was on a 23 day trek and had to bend them back straight, but once bent, they were weakened and would bend back even easier. And, if you don't have a hammer and use a rock, it's worse. I was in a panick and luckily was able to have someone replace them on my first resupply stop but that was a worry every night setting up. I tired to find the softest soil and then did not drive them all the way into the dirt. I replaced them with MSR Ground Hog stakes which are four sided and don't not bend as easily. These would be fine in soft sand or on a lawn, but DO NOT rely on them as your only stakes or for a backpacking trip!

    What more can I say in a review about tent stakes? Hmm ... well these replaced the cheap galvanized steel set that came with my tent. These are far superior and don't bend when tapped with a stick or a rock. If you have a tent with galvanized stakes, quit reading reviews and buy these now.

    Notches for rope are a bit sharp, but only time will tell if this really matters.
