Not all DAC J-stakes are the same

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have encountered DAC J-stakes in two sizes. Both sizes are 6.5 inches in length. However, one is wider than another. The beautiful blue colored V-pegs (J-stakes) from Sierra Designs are larger than other DAC J-stakes I own. These weigh 0.45 ounces or 13 grams on my scale. The smaller DAC J-stakes (comes with my Hilleberg, First Ascent Stargazer, various The North Face) are also also 6.5 inches long. However, they are visibly narrower and weigh weighs 0.40 ounces or 12 grams on my scale.

We're talking about a gram or two per stake for a slightly larger surface area and holding power. If you want V-pegs, take these over the other DAC J-stakes sold at Backcountry. They are larger. My caveat is that I purchased my stakes in 2012. There is a possibility that cost-cutting measures may have resulted in stake shrinkage of newer ones.

My go-to stake is the MSR Groundhog, and the newest incarnation (2014) weighs 0.46 ounces or 13 grams per stake. There's almost no reason not to go with a Groundhog now.

Excellent Stakes

I was turned on to DAC J-stakes as they were included with my Nemo tents. They are high quality light weight and strong. I've picked up these extras because its always a good idea to have them for your guy-out lines (not typically included with tents). The blue color makes them highly visible. I've tied on some 3mm PMI Niteline Utility cord to add to visibility. I must say, it's now a pretty handsome little tent stake.

Lightweight and sturdy

Picked a package of these up in order to set up the rainfly for my hammock a bit easier if there didn't happen to be accommodating trees where needed. They seem to hold well in both loamy soil and more sandy rocky stuff. Used them for a week in the Virgin Islands when camping and they held great for the whole time. Bright blue color is nice as they pop out if you drop one. They seem well constructed but are light enough weight that I don't mind carrying them even though I might not always need them.

What size are these tent stakes? I couldn't find any size anywhere; I had put in 9" - 12" Aluminum stakes and it sent me here...

Try using the chat now feature in the upper right hand corner to ask the gear expert to have someone in the warehouse measure it for you.

Good value...

These stakes are not bad. They're light, reasonably strong, and do the job. In stating that, I have bent the head on a few of these in the field. For my money, I go with MSR Groundhog stakes for bombproof peace of mind.

Solid Stakes

I typically replace my tent stakes with MSR Groundhogs straight away. I find those are the toughest choices available for the rocky/hard Colorado soil I camp on.

I received a set of these with a recent tent, though, and as they looked better than the average stock stakes, I decided to keep them. I'm glad I did - they're just a bit smaller (just 2 ridges instead of the 3 on the Groundhogs) and lighter than the Groundhogs, but they're nearly as strong.

If you need the best of the best, go with the Groundhogs. Otherwise, these are a very solid choice.

Best all-around stakes available

These are fantastic stakes for most purposes (see my review on the North Face version). Again, these are actually DAC stakes so decide how many you need, what color, and if you want cord attached to decide what is the best deal.

Thanks Angus! Are these the same stakes that Big Agnes ships with their tents? DAC?

My Sierra Designs J-stakes are 0.45 ounces or 13 grams on my scale. Unless Sierra Designs stakes have changed, the Sierra Designs DAC stakes are slightly wider than other DAC J-stakes. See my other post.
