    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    $16 for 6 tent stakes? That's what I thought when I looked at these. And "mini" didn't necessarily instill warm fuzzy feelings about holding my tent down in gusting wind on an exposed ridge.

    Turns out, I was wrong (surprise). These little guys are all I needed to hold my 2-man tent down and secure in multiple surface types (sand, hard pack, some rocks) and didn't pull out even when I could've angled them a little more aggressively than I did.

    My other concern was "there's no big hook to hold my guy-lines on" wrong again...the small indent is a sharp enough hook to grip the lines and the nylon webbing/straps on my rain fly with no problem. I didn't bend any and the Y-design of them really held well in the ground, I had the guy-lines really tight one night in high winds and they held perfectly.

    I was going between these Mini Groundhog stakes, and the Groundhoung stakes, and Karissa at BC ( was super helpful and asked around the office to let me know that these were most peoples go-to tent stakes.

    Once I used them the $16 price tag was completely worth it, good-bye steel stakes!

    Buy them.

    Super Light but Really Strong

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Used these on three 4/5 day trips during the summer of 2016. Holds strong under windy conditions in sandy or lose soil. Used my boot to drive into the ground and didn't have a problem. Fairly easy to pull out of the ground too. Great balance between strength and weight.

    Super Light but Really Strong


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

    Used these last weekend on a backpacking trip in the Uintas. They're lightweight, strong, don't take up much space, and bite/hold really well. Love 'em.
