Rated 5 out of 5áby OJBS Good little lightweight stake.
A good small stake for the money. Far better than less expensive softer aluminum as they resist bending. The cord loops add functionality for pulling and for toggling. I've equipped all three tents with them as well as 3 tarps.

I have pitched tent over 100 times this past 18 months and the only stakes which have held up though high winds and have never bent are these. I have read numerous positive reviews and I can only agree. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5áby drcawilson Superb strength, length, and visibility
I use these stakes for my pyramid tarp shelter, which sets up with a single central trekking pole and four corners and four sides staked out.
Well engineered triangular beam design gives superior grip in all ground types. They always feel more secure than cylindrical peg stakes.
The notch near the top allows a perfect grip for standard 3 mm diameter guy line and any thinner ultralight guy line.
Now lighter, and even more worth the extra fraction of an ounce.
Highly recommended stakes for holding power in high wind.

Rated 5 out of 5áby llbeandad love these stakes!
this is the third set of the msr groundhog stakes i've ordered. i've used them in multiple soils: clay; dry; wet; sand; and mud. they provide excellent stability and do not pull out, even in high winds. i've also pounded them in with sticks, rocks and boots without deforming or bending the stakes. they're ultralight as well, making them perfectly suited for backpacking.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Slobutsure Good soft ground stakes
Seem very well made. They cost more than the off brand of similar design, but seem to be made from a sturdy alloy. I purchased these for use in softer dirt, and use slender spike type for hard rocky soil.

Rated 5 out of 5áby CascadeMTNhiker Strong and easy to use
I purchased these stakes to replace stakes on an existing tent. I have used them on several trips including a 12 day trek. The stakes held very well in a variety of soils. I was able to drive them into some hard soil without trouble and no bending (unlike stakes that come with tents). The string attached to the ends was very convenient for removing the stakes when I had driven them deep into the ground.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Nicholaus Possibly the smallest yet strongest stakes.
These stakes are simply amazing, they have been through multiple storms; one of them being with 40 mph winds and not a single stake came undone. I would HIGHLY recommend purchasing these stakes, they are just amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5áby RuledbyHounds Excellent tent stakes
I bought these to use instead of the stakes that came with our low-end Coleman tent. They pound in and pull out easily, and they dust off well. We have only used them for car camping, so their light weight is not necessary, but it's still a plus. Living in the desert Southwest, we have never encountered rain while camping, so our stakes have never gotten wet, but they're aluminum, so they shouldn't rust. Bottom line, great stakes!
