Rated 4 out of 5 by from bonus: you can dig catholes with it too I saw this in the store and at first I thought it was a small trowel. Then I realized it was a tent stake. So I dumped one of my other MSR mini-hogs and packed this one. It's a tent stake, and I keep it on the outside of my pack for digging catholes for #2. Buy this, dump a tent stake, and dump your towel: winner, winner, winner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great in sand. I used these stakes with my new Alcove shelter during our beach trip to the OBX last week. On a few days, winds were 15-20 mph with gusts much higher. These stakes performed flawlessly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked in Sand Used these stakes on a sand dune during beach camping. My Fly Creek UL1 tent isn't truly freestanding so I was concerned about it losing all shape. Spent several nights with 20-30 mph winds and my tent was the only one to stay on the ground and keep its shape. I did place rocks on top of each stake. No regrets with this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A redefined Snow Stake This is a better than the original REI Snow Stake. They smoothed and rounded all of the edges on this one, so your Guy Lines do not get frayed or cut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stake + Cathole This is a great stake but an even better cathole digger. The holes on the side are great for measuring depth. Lightweight but not so small it hurts your hand to dig in the ground. Win!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile Read a few reviews saying that this stake can be used as a backpacker's trowel. I had been using a stainless steel garden tool... overkill, but a great digger, certainly never would break, no matter the ground or temperature. This isn't doesn't have as wide a blade, but yes, it digs and is strong enough, but it's a feather compared to that garden tool. The holes that assist as a stake in snow and sand reduce the weight still further. If you need the forward edge to be sharper, a file makes quick work of the Aluminum. Versatile item!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holding Power + Camped out at Doran Beach and the wind was blowing very hard my tent was the only one that did not blow away!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from They worked...sort of. For sand camping on the beach, these worked well in moderate wind. When a fierce Atlantic squall hit - 40mph gusts and driving rain - they barely held and I lost 2 guy lines and then that corner of the tent. In the future I'll keep them handy for loose soil held together by vegetation, maybe for corners, but will definitely go back to using 1x2x18" wooden stakes for guy lines in dune or beach sand.
