Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 5 by 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 5 by 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.

These are the best tent stakes you can buy and with free shipping, L.L.Bean is the cheapest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bluraven MSR Ground Hog Stakes are the Best!
Best stakes you can buy. They work perfect and are very strong.
LL Bean has the best price with free shipping. Can't beat it. I shopped around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 5 by 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!

Lightweight, did NOT bend, held well in the wind. I use these stakes with our BSA Troop tents and they have done well in the rocky terrain

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kisa rock solid
These tent stakes are rock solid! They don't bend or twist at all, and can be pounded into the hardest soil. They even come with pull loops already installed. I usually bring lighter stakes along with one or two of these, which I put on the high stress points of my tent, especially in windy weather. These are the stakes I depend on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bull16 Groundhog Stakes
Light and easy to use. Drive into the ground easily, remove easily but held well. Wind (20 - 30 mph) and rain from the fringe of Hurricane Irene (in Finger Lakes NY) didn't budge tent or canopy held down with these. Size slightly smaller than expected but worked great.
