Description

Don't let your feather-light shelter catch the wind.

After a few light-packing trips or adventure races, some tent stakes are bound to go missing. This six-pack of Terra Nova Titanium Skewers secures your Terra Nova ultralight tent or a do-it-yourself shelter to the ground without adding much weight to your pack.
  • Titanium makes these stakes both strong and lightweight
  • Choose the 1g 12cm stakes, the 2g 13cm stakes, or the 5.5g 15cm stakes based on your required level of security vs. weight savings
  • Color-coated hooks on the 1g and 2g stakes increase visibility when packing up in the morning

GOAT IS GOOD

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Light. Work fine in soil. Useless in sand or any rocky soil. In my quest for gram counting, thought these might be the holy grail?in reality, at 1 gram a piece, they are extras in my kit. I?ll use them when the conditions are perfect, but you can?t take them as the only stake option, they simply won?t work in many of the conditions I find. If you regularly encounter soil, these may be great. For me, I won?t buy again?I?ll stick with more substantial DAC or carbon stakes.

The lightest tent stakes...

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

At 1 gram each, these are likely the lightest stakes on the market. However, I would be very reluctant to use these to actually pitch my tarp/tent with in anything other than optimal weather conditions. Instead,I will use these to simply stake down an inner net tent under my tarp.

These are quite thin (as seen in my photo), however, at only 1 gram each, they are expected to be thin. They could be bent rather easily, however, if they do become bent, they would be easy to bend back without little effort. Saying this, these will work best in softer ground.

I am really happy that TN has decided to paint the ends of these orange to help with visibility on them (considering they are so thin), but I will admit, I wish it was a brighter color orange rather than the duller color that they are.

All in all, I will give them 5 stars. They are what they are, and with the color coating on them, and still at only 1 gram, that is saying something. They are delicate, but this is the nature of their design. Users should consider this before they purchase them...

Ti Skewers

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are exactly what I was looking for. I needed a light duty stake for tarp door tie outs and these fit the bill perfectly. I would not recommend them for anything with heavy tension or in a strong wind situation, but overall they fit the bill perfectly
