About Mountainsmith Tent V-Stakes - Aluminum, Pack of Eight

Closeouts. Never be frustrated by hard ground or bent stakes again. Mountainsmith's aluminum V-Stakes are extra durable, lightweight and notched for guy lines.

    works well and doesn't bend easily. I used these on my AT thru-hike.

    for 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.

    I'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..

    the 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.
