Works in asphalt and mud

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

They are strong enough that you can pound them into broken asphalt. I often camp at events where the parking lot is old asphalt that has been broken up and removed from other areas, then dumped, spread and rolled to make hard surface parking areas for RVs. Regular tent stakes may go in an inch or two at most and then bend. These will bite and dig their way through that hard surface without bending. Just make sure you have a hammer to bang them back and forth so you can loosen them to pull them out for re-use. They also hold better than normal in muddy ground conditions where others won't hold.

Addendum - 1 year later. Recently went through a major windstorm with these. Sustained winds of 25-35 mph, with gusts of 50-60 mph. The guy lines all stayed taught. All the stakes stayed put. Since nothing else would give, the wind actually tore the fabric of the fly. Everyone else's blew down. Mine was the only tent to stay put.

BURLY

I bought these to replace the crappy aluminum stakes that came with my Marmot Limelight 2p tent. These things are GREAT. They hammer into hard, rocky surfaces really well, and are easy to remove. They do really well in soft, sandy dirt as well if you turn them around so that the angle is opening towards the tent, catching more dirt. Can't beat these for the price!

Hard to beat the price

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

I got these for hammock camping, and I was really excited to see an 8-pack of stakes of this quality for this price. I haven't had a chance to really use them yet, but I really can't wait to test them out.

Sturdy Stakes!

After using the stakes that came with my tent for nearly two years, it was finally time for some replacements. And boy am I glad I made the upgrade! Seriously, not only do these go into the ground more smoothly, they hold up well to whatever rock hammer is around to smack them into the ground and then they even pull out smoothly. So glad I got these!

Dopest tent stakes in all of ever.

These could pierce solid rock if you need them to. They are indestructible. This is what Thors hammer is made of. 10/10. Great Job North Face.

Good addition

Picked these up to have some backup stakes when I need them. Lightweight and they seem more reliable than the standard rod with a hook stake I've been using.

I'd Stake My Life On Them

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

These are good stakes. They aren't prone to bending (even when beating them into rocky ground with a hammer), they stay put, and they aren't too heavy. The anodizing wears off quickly but I didn't buy these to look at them. Downsides - they collect dirt more than round stakes which makes storage messier (not a big deal to me) and the top hooks to loop your line over are minimal - they hold a line securely but the line should be well tied, not just looped.

Solid replacement option

Familiarity:

I was in need of new tent stacks, this was a great option for a replacement. The 8 pack is perfect for my tent and vestibule, lightweight and durable, you can't go wrong.

Better than the original.

These babies replaced my bent, busted, broken stakes that I've been dealing with for seasons, and boy oh boy am I psyched to stake my tent again. It's easy, and these superlight things don't take too much space.

Great Upgrade

I went camping a few weeks ago and found that I was missing a couple stakes and a number of the ones that I did have were bent. That inspired me to spring for these and they've worked much better so far.

Don't bend or break.

numerous issues in the past with regular tent poles, switched over to these bad boys and i've never had a problem.

don't bend

I bought this stakes for the new tent I bought to replace the ones it came with. they are way light and to top it off I pounded them it too frozen ground and they did not bend at all..

Good buy

I bought this as some extras. The VE 25 should come with a few more stakes. But love the fact they are highly visible. I've bought a bunch for that reason alone. And they don't seem to bend.

These stakes don't bend...

These stakes don't bend they shatter! I still love these stakes, don't get me wrong, I have put these through hell & have been very mean to them. On a recent winter camping trip, the mix of frozen & rocky ground proved too much for these stakes. Out of 6 stakes 2 broke. Overall great stake, you just can't use these in solid rock... duh...

The North Face J-Stake

Works great all year long. Just recently used these winter camping... they had to be pounded in with a rock to get them into the frozen ground. Not one bent.

Does the Job!

I purchased these to go with my Wife's glorified North Face Bivy & they work great. She has used them for nearly a year now & not one has bent or not worked as intended. The weight is awesome as well!

These stakes are well done (sorry)

I put them in the ground and my tent didn't blow away. Perfect.

like them, highly visible color.

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I must say these hold well, and the gold color makes them easy to locate. I was using ti shepard hooks for a while (that are about half the weight). However these hold 1000x better and are hard to lose.

just measured the weight on my postage scale, they weigh .416666666 ounces each. These are slightly wider than the .4 version, worth the weight increase imo.

I'm interested in weight of The North Face...

I'm interested in weight of The North Face J-Stake M - 8-pack thanks

Those stakes are around 2.5 oz. each.

the whole pack must weight 2.5oz. Individually they're .4oz, or a touch over 11 grams.

they weigh .4 ounces each, they are wide and have good holding power.
