              These can be pounded in, but are still easy to pull out.
              They hold better than some that are longer & heavier, even in mud and loose soil.

                    I just bought a new tent. As usual they didn't supply enough stakes to cover all the tie down locations.I do a lot of expedition kayak camping on the Miss. R. You camp on the sand. These stakes hold reasonably well in the sand. There are others that look similar at a lower price. Iv'e seen these. Spend the extra money

                      These stakes are well made and lightweight, a definite upgrade from the stakes that came with my tent. The reflective cords really work, as I was walking towards the tent at night wearing a headlamp and they were glowing.

                        Great lightweight and highly visible Tent Stakes. These are easy to locate in the low light of dusk when setting camp or dawn when breaking camp. I would like to see a form fitted 'plastic' top to help push or pound these in -- ideally this 'top' would be separate from the stakes (product idea!)...

                        I used these stakes to hold down my hammock canopy. I chose these stakes by another review and the author was right, they are strong and durable. I like that you can see the reflective strigns at night when you shine a light on them. Great safety feature! I pounded these stakes into rock hard ground and they held their shape without bending. I bought the 8 pack because it was a better value than the 6 pack. (And you never know when you're going to loose one.)

                        With the nylon cord I was able to use the Groundhog Stakes to anchor my umbrella in the yard. A strong windstorm did't disturb the umbrella at all!

                        I can picture dozens of other things I would like to anchor down temporarily from time to time and know these will do the trick!

                                      The correct answer would be more like .25 oz per stake. The 8 pack weighs 4 oz or .25 of a Lb. This is with the packaging card. 4 oz/8 = .5 oz and discounting the packaging you are more likely in the .25 oz range.

                                    Are these meant to be attached at the stake points? Also, do these need to be removed every time or can you leave these attached to your tent? Thanks

                                      Tents will have stake loops at the points on the wall where it is appropriate to secure them. Stakes are generally not left attached to a tent to avoid damaging the material during storage. Stakes should be packed in a separate stuff sack.
