Not for fastpacking
I needed some replacement stakes for misplaced and lost stakes for one of my Nemo tents and when I got these I was a little disappointed with the weight and size. The stakes that came with my Gogo were top notch incredibly lite and compact. These are a little bit bigger all around and almost double the weight per stake. Of course I fast pack and am ultra concerned about weight, so it all comes down to perspective. If I can cut 5 oz for 6 products I take with me that is literally 2lbs of weight I wouldn't have to carry. Don't get me wrong they are burly and strong and will work quite well for most. For my personal needs I am going to look at titanium. If your not ultra concerned with weight these will do just fine, get the job done and are plenty more packable than most stakes on the market.
