Verified Buyer Reviewed by Bama Hiker from Shiregrass of Alabama on Friday, January 27, 2017These are a great alternative to the heavy metal tent stakes that come with most tents. They are about 1/4 to 1/2 the weight of most tent stakes, very durable and pack nicely together for less bulk. The design shape makes them very difficult to bend, so you can lash your tent cords in the center of the stake and wedge them in between or behind roots and rocks as an alternative method of securing your tent. Happy camping!

Reviewed by Yogamom from New Jersey on Tuesday, December 6, 2016for backpacking, not car camping.
just weighed them at 12grams each. There are probably some glass icicles on my Christmas tree that weigh more. They are not some soft aluminum, but a harder "7075" alloy. 3/8" x 3/8" angle has a cylinder joining the two sides (not just folded) which makes them really strong for the amount of mass.
Overall length of 7", gives you about 6" to put in the ground below the guy line. Given their small size, the notch for the line doesn't work well for rings or webbing (tent corners). I end up fully submerging that last inch once the guy line is adjusted.
Reviewed by Montana Ann 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..
