These just plain suck.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
These came with the tent and used them this weekend because I could not find by bag of "throw-away" stakes. Was very dissatisfied since usually Mountain Hardwear gear is great quality. You have to compromise for weight somewhere. If these go in cold earth at all, they will break when you attempt to extract them in the morning.
Plus for what they charge, you are better buying the true 99 cents throw-aways.
