Reviewed by The tent stake guy from Montana on Tuesday, October 4, 2016I've had these for a couple years now. They are light weight and look good. They will do fine in soft soil. Problem number 1: in order to help pull these out of the ground, I had to drill a small hole above the notched area to tie a string. Grab the string and they pull out easily. Problem number 2: for car camping, I carry a small tack hammer to get these into harder ground. Because they are v-shaped (2 sided) they begin to bend at the notch whether using a hammer or rock. Once bent, you can't straighten them because of the light-weight aluminum. I will consider purchasing MSR hog stakes because they are 3-sided but, quite expensive..

Reviewed by Kyle from Cheyenne on Thursday, September 1, 2016the throat where the guy line attaches is far too narrow. if you plan on camping in anything other than very soft dirt or sand, plan on the heads of these bending beyond use or completely snapping off. half of mine broke the second time I used them. I will not be purchasing these again. spend a little more money and buy some 4-sided backpacking stakes, you'll thank me.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by suMMit from Montana on Thursday, August 25, 2016These are great stakes to use in rocky areas. Much easier to drive in than 7 shaped stakes and cut through hard ground.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by ozarkansawyer from Arkansas on Wednesday, August 24, 2016If you tent camp and don't have a couple sets of these cheap, durable v-stakes, you are certainly missing out. You normally can't bend this stake even in rock...really, secures the tent and the rain fly! Do yourself a favor and buy a couples sets for yourself and a couple for your camping friends-- they'll love ya for it!
