    Pitch a tighter tent, even if the conditions are looking a little soft.

    Yup, you guessed it, MSR Cyclone Tent Stakes are shaped like a Midwest twister. Fortunately they're designed to help keep your shelter UP instead of tearing it down. Small cord loops at the top of each stake help you get a grip on the little buggers when you need to tear down basecamp.

    A tent saver!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Used these on our honeymoon last summer touring the national parks. They helped us keep our tent when we were in North Dakota during a wicked strong storm which later produced a 1000-year flood back home on the south shore of Lake Superior.

    Just got these

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

    Will update this review in about two weeks when I get to test them out at Lost Maples State Park (Texas). Wanted to add a pic for scale. Gave them 5 stars for now, given that I am a fan of the design.

    Just got these

    They stay put!

      I bought a couple of these when I was on vacation just because I thought they looked cool. They work way better than they look! So i bought more here, and replaced my others. They stay in the ground- haven't had one come out on it's own, yet, and i have put them in pretty lofty soil. Also drive into hard-pack way easier than I thought they would, and haven't bent one on a rock yet, though rocks are hard on the anodizing; it actually makes 'me look cooler after they get beat up a bit. I like the head design as it holds rope very well(locks on itself). They actually pull out of the ground fairly easy when you pull on the little loop considering how solid they hold.

      I was the sole survivor

        Beach camping in gale force winds and pouring rain and mine was the only surviving tent in the morning. A few of my guy lines popped free (other stakes), but the tent and vestibules stayed put. While I'd like to take full credit for pitching an awesome tent - these stakes in the soft sand bend through insane gusts. Don't hesitate on these if you'll be camping on soft ground - well worth the price!

        Awesome stake

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        The spiral helps these stakes stay in the ground better than others, especially in soft dirt/sand. Additionally the flanges add rigidity so these are less likely to bend if hit by a mallet.

        Great Upgrade

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        If you're pitching a tent, shelter or awning in soft ground, these are a must. I use them very often in the Utah desert sand, and I've never had one pull out, even in some pretty severe thunderstorms. I can't say the same about my shorter v-shaped stakes.

        pretty fantastic

          I used these on a ten day archaeology stint in the back country. They were easy to pound in and stayed in place even when I was lazy and didn't pound them in completely. My only concern about these is that sometimes they get stuck in the ground so having an actual hammer to get them out was helpful when my hands were weak and aching from archaeological work

          One of the best tent stakes around!

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          These are incredible in soft ground. In places that a stake will normally pull right out of, these grip like crazy! Plus, they're crazy light!

          What does the cyclone really do. Does it...

          What does the cyclone really do. Does it act like a drill or is it for sonething else?
