From soft sand to snow, the Titanium V Stakes are a great option when you need a little more stability. These V-shaped stakes are made from ultralight and ultra strong titanium. This broad stake is designed to grip loose soil and hold better in the wind compared to thinner stakes. If the ground is too firm, turn them sideways and anchor them with a rock. Although these are pretty strong, they can be bent in half if you lean your body weight on them too hard.

In windy territory you may want a full set. For normal conditions save weight with lighter stakes, and maybe add just one or two of these for additional anchors on windy nights.

These have a red-coated end, which makes them easy to see and a red cord to make them easier to pull out of the ground.

Ultralight stakes should never be hammered or 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 just the tip of your stakes in, and then anchor them with rocks. If you are camped above tree line on stone, wrap the guy lines around rocks to anchor them. On beach sand, you can 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.

6.5 titanium V stake

Good so far. Very light weight. Bent one stake badly by using my foot to insert it into the ground. Softer than I thought. Early days yet of using them

Best Tent stakes ever!

I have purchased MSR groundhogs in various different forms for various different uses I have purchased every ultralight state that you can imagine so the last try I was Z-Paks and I’m not lying when I tell you you could pretty much drill it right in the concrete and he’d be good to go and those things would last through a hurricane super impressed and I don’t necessarily do these reviews so being a little bit overdramatic but it’s necessary because they’re that good!

Great stakes

These stakes hold in every situation I have used them in in all four seasons. Would highly recommend them. I used them with my duplex and now with my altaplex

Took for the first time on a 78 mile Kayak trip and worked great. Looking forward to backpacking the Florida Trail now.
