MSR Carbon-Core Tent Stake Review
October 19, 2013
The MSR Carbon-Core Tent Stake is advertised as the lightest full strength tent stake on the market. While I don’t know if this is true or not they are super light, weighing just 5.7 g per stake. They are made of a carbon core encased in a metal sheath and topped with a plastic cap. They are fairly wide around for a circular tent stake helping them hold well even in lose soil.
I was a little worried about the plastic caps on the top but after pounding them into the ground with an axe head a few times I don’t think I need to worry.
Super light weight tent stakes that hold strong and don’t break/bend. What more do you want? Go pick up a set.
