6.5" Red Tough Titanium Tent Stake
I have used many different brands of titanium wire stakes and find these to be the best quality.
Perfect for those hikers who need a little more strength and durability. These stakes are a little longer and thicker than our 6” ultralight titanium tent stakes. They have a little more grip and are less susceptible to bending. These stakes are easier to press into packed or frozen ground compared to larger stakes. Since these are ultralight stakes, It is better to press them into the ground rather than hammering. Use rocks to anchor them in high wind.
They have a red head, which makes them harder to lose.
Weight: .28 ounces (8 grams)

Ultralight stakes in general should never be hammered in, because they could get bent or damaged. Hold your foot in both hands for stability, and guide the stake into the ground with your body weight. If the ground is too solid to drive in stakes, anchor them with rocks instead.
Non-Freestanding tents can be pitched just about anywhere with a little creativity. If the ground is too firm, wedge the tip of your stakes in, and then anchor them with rocks. If you are camped above tree line on stone, wrap the guylines around rocks to anchor them. On beach sand use rocks, driftwood, etc as anchors for the tent guylines. On wooden tent platforms you can wedge the stakes between the boards, or use extra line to tie off to the ends of the platform. There are many ways to make it work if you use your imagination.

Great lightweight stakes
I recently purchased the titanium stakes and used them for a trip in the Wind River Range. They worked great in tent sites with good soil. In terrain where you really need to pound stakes in, I would bring along a more heavy duty stake, but if you know that the ground will be stake-friendly, these are the ticket!!’
Light but weak
Very light which is great but even with light wind, I was having trouble keeping them down. Probably be great in the perfect conditions
I like these, they are easy to get into the ground and did the job well.
Great tent stakes for backpacking. Compact. Lightweight. Easily push into and remove from ground with hand. Great holding power. Overall after about 20 uses now, they exceeded all of my expectations. And the crook is red which makes them easy to see and find if you drop one.

Well built, light, and tough. Don’t work in lose soil, sand, or rocky terrain.
