Jump on them, beat them with a rock, and hammer them into tough surfaces; Kelty's 6-Pack of Nobendium II Tent Stakes live up to their no-bend name.
- High-strength aluminum
- Hexagonal shape
- Long tapered point
Much improved for 2018
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This is Adrian with Kelty. We were keenly aware of the bendiness of our "MoBendium" stakes. All of our new batches have a significantly harder aluminum alloy being used which significantly increases their rigidity. I've been using them regularly on a number of new products, and only bent a few with some very ham-fisted impacts. All told, these are significantly better than previous generations.
That being said, if you really want indestructible, go for the Kelty J-Stake.
More like MObendium amirite?
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Used these stakes once, in soft ground, and when I pulled them up in the morning half were significantly bent. Super disappointed, normally a fan of Kelty.
