Secures your tent when stakes won't work.

When stakes won't work, the Mountain Hardwear Snow/ Sand Anchor secures your shelter so it can't blow away. This anchor four-pack works when you're camping on a beach, in a snowfield, or on a mountain where loose surfaces or impenetrable ground make it impossible to stake down your tent. Simply load up sand, loose rocks, or packed snow on the anchor's surface to keep your tent from lifting off the ground.

Worth It

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I finally caved and bought these after years of wasting time burying various items or using axes/poles for snow anchors. They're pretty bomber and it is nice to not worry about macgyvering tie-outs. They could be a bit lighter (dyneema maybe?), but to their credit have repeatedly stood up to being aggressively chopped out with an ice tool.
