With more holding power than aluminum and half the weight, the MSR Sand/Snow Stake Kit is made for just that: camping in the snow and sand. When classic stakes refuse to stick in the less-than-ideal conditions, these stakes load up and get buried to ensure your tent won't blow away.

- Q & A
Better than burying your nalgene
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Last winter camping I did we ended up burying all our water bottles to get the tent up. Not ideal. These are super light so you don't feel silly carrying them a long distance "just incase" you can't find anything to anchor the tent. They also stay put better than a Nalgene or trekking pole under the snow.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
These are necessary for any camping outing. Not only are they great in the snow and sand where stakes pull out and are useless, these also come in handy on variable ground where hammering stakes can be hard. I fill them with rocks to avoid having to deal with the hammer etc.
