Don't be fooled, our needles stakes pack a punch! Despite their small size and ultralight weight, the square cross-section is plenty thick to survive the toughest terrain. At only 0.34 ounces per stake, they are a great option for ultralight backpackers.

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).

  • Weight per Stake: 9.6 grams / 0.34 ounces

Glad I found a company still selling needle stakes. They are the best all-around stakes for backcountry adventures. Very strong, super light and the light blue color is easy to spot if you drop one in the grass. They will definitively be in my tarp kit next time I hit the trail.

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

Had a chance to use these stakes over the weekend. They worked great. Held well in an over night soaking storm. Used them in an area where there was soil to hold them as they are designed. Happy with purchase. Thanks.

Great needle stakes.

These are great needle stakes. They are light, strong, and pack nicely into a small space. Plus, the value is there when you compare them with the outrageous prices other companies are charging. Light blue isn’t my favorite color, but they aren’t lost easily as they stand out from natural colors. I stepped on one and bent it beyond repair during my first use; my fault. Idiot-proofness is why many tent manufacturers include y-stakes with their tents, but if you’re looking specifically for needle stakes- this is a great product. I’ll order more when I eventually step on all of them.
