Product Description

Don't be fooled, our needles stakes pack a punch! Despite their small size and featherlight weight, the square cross-section is plenty thick to survive the toughest terrain. If you don't want to spring for our titanium shepherd stakes, these are the lightest alloy option available.

The smaller, needle-shaped cross-section makes them easy to sink into any terrain. If you do manage to bend one on a rock, they are easily straightened out. The bright blue color and rounded notch at the top make them easy to see and a breeze to pull out.

Finally, each stake is carefully manufactured from high-grade, 7000-series aluminum alloy for the perfect mix of weight and durability. Due to the minimalist shape, the stakes only weigh 0.34 ounces (9.6 grams).

All international orders are shipped via DHL Express with all Duties Paid. This means that all import taxes and duties are prepaid. No additional fees will be collected from the customer.

Most international deliveries are made within 4-6 business days, although more remote locations can take a couple of extra days. All international shipments are fully tracked from door-to-door.

If your destination is not listed above, we apologize that we're not able to accommodate direct shipments to you. However, some of our customers have successfully used 3rd party international parcel forwarding services.

What is your return/exchange policy?

We offer 60 days to accommodate any returns or exchanges of non-defective products. In some cases, we can accommodate returns and exchanges past 60 days, but these will be decided on a case-by-case basis. Any returns after 60 days will only be offered store credit.

What items are eligible for a return?

To be eligible for a return and refund, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. It must also be in the original packaging.

If you've purchased a tent or tarp and would like to set it up in your backyard, please do so on a dry, clear day to keep the tent/tarp as clean as possible. Pitch the tent/tarp on dry grass if possible and use other stakes if you have them available. This will keep the tent/tarp and stakes in an unused condition to facilitate a return.

If items sent back for a return/exchange show clear signs of use (excessive dirt, animal hair, etc.), the return/exchange will be rejected and the items will be shipped back.

Are shipping fees refundable?

Shipping costs are non-refundable. If you receive a refund, the initial cost of shipping your order (if any) will be deducted from your refund.

Is return shipping free?

No, the cost of return shipping will be subtracted from the refund amount. We will provide a prepaid return label for the return shipment. The cost of return shipping will be provided to you along with the prepaid return label. 

Please note that due to our shipping volume, we have access to significantly lower shipping rates than retail. As a result, the cost of the return shipping will be much lower, resulting in a higher refund.

How do I initiate a return/exchange?

To initiate a return/exchange, please email us at with the following information:

  • Your original order number
  • The items to be returned/exchanged
  • The reason for the return/exchange

Once your return/exchange request is received, we will provide a prepaid return shipping label along with the cost of return shipping. If you decide to proceed with the return, please use this label to send the items back to us. We will only accept returns that are shipped via the prepaid return label. This ensures that the shipment will be trackable and insured.

Once the returned items are delivered and inspected (please allow 1-2 weekdays for inspection), we will issue your refund or exchange.

When a refund is processed, a credit will automatically be applied to your original method of payment and you will receive an email notification. Please allow 2-5 business days for the credit to appear.

What about international returns?

If you are an international customer, the same 60 day return/exchange policy applies. To initiate an international return, please contact us at the email address above and provide the same order/item to be returned information. We will then coordinate with you on the return process, which will differ slightly depending on your exact location. The return instructions above only apply to US customers.

All of our products come with a limited lifetime warranty against manufacturer defects. If there is a problem with your gear due to manufacturing, we will replace it free of charge, no questions asked. If you have any concerns about your product, please contact us at:

When contacting us for a warranty claim, please include:

  • The specific product, including size or length
  • Your original order number
  • Your current shipping address

We pride ourselves on our courteous and responsive customer service. We'll do our best to make sure all of our customers are happy with their purchase.

The only stake u will ever need

I have been using mine for over 2 years now and the ends will bend some ifu drive them hard in very rocky soil , but so would msr !!
But these are the lightest option I have for my zpacks plexamid ,
Was so sad when msr quit selling them , gonna order another set just in case u guys discontinue these , sure the ground hog style are stronger but they are heavier and take up more pack space , these are the best in my opinion for gram counters who want a strong stake .

No Match for the Rock Hard Soil of Alstrom Point

I hoped these would be an alternative to the titanium nail pegs from another manufacturer. These aluminum needle stakes are lighter weight and less sharp (which I appreciate as I don’t worry as much about them puncturing my pack) but unfortunately they proved to be no match for the rock hard soil of Alstrom Point.

Spencer Bralley (Birmingham, AL, US)
Great inexpensive tent stakes

These stakes are inexpensive and hold well in hard ground. In soft soil they don't hold quite as well as a mini groundhog, and weigh slightly more. Great all-around option if you're looking for a relatively light, quite durable, and very affordable tent stakes with moderate holding power.

Paula Penn
Ultralight and Easy

These stakes are perfect replacements for the much-sought-after UL stakes that come with MSR tents. MSR doesn't sell them separately anymore and they are in high demand because they are so light, small to pack, and easy to pull when breaking camp. They last well (6 years in a rocky georegion and never a bent stake yet) and have held for me in all types of storms, although they don't hold well in sand and aren't really meant to. So glad to have found a source for these again!!

Needle stakes

These are my absolute favorite, They work very well in Rocky Mountain Terrain, I just completed the 105 mile shennandoh national park thru hike and the stakes performed perfect , they were easy to wiggle there way thru the rocky terrain with no breakages, want to buy more in case I loose one , I use a zpacks plexamid tent and it uses 10 stakes
