Are you a lightweight hiker that is sick of the heavy and flimsy pegs most tents come with? Treat yourself - and your back - to an 8 pack of ultralight Sea to Summit Ground Control Tent Pegs.
Made from strong-as-an-aircraft 6061-T6 alloy, these pegs will never bend and feature multiple guy points along their length in case you can only whack 'em in so far. A glow in the dark pull loop (charged by the sun!) makes it a breeze to pull 'em out when you pack up camp.
At a tiny 14g each, these tent stakes are for the lightweight trekker who hates the weight and bendiness of conventional pegs.
Found these to be surprisingly capable and nice and compact to carry. I use them to peg out swag ropes and they do the job perfectly. I wouldn't be smashing them through rocky ground as they are aluminium after all, but when used sensibly, they do the job perfectly. The pull tab on the top works better than I had anticipated too.
We bought these thinking they might be good for our camper - our own fault for not reading more info - these pegs are small and would be great for a trekker or climber but not for a caravan awning so we are disappointed in the product. Could do with a better description regarding intended use for items like this
Thanks for your feedback Jim - we'll do something about it right away. If the pegs are still brand new (unopened), please feel free to let us know so we can sort out a return. Laine
Having used many types of tent pegs these are pretty good. In extremely hard and compact ground they are good to get in but getting them out can be tuff - however never owned pegs that could withstand really tuff compact dry ground. Not as lightweight as I would like but a great product anyway.
They are extremely lightweight and come with a compact peg bag.
They are advertised to never bend but one of them bent when hammering into relatively hard ground. They have glow-in-the dark pull loops but the cord holding the loop broke on the first peg I tried pulling out of the ground. And the they didn't glow over the three days I was camping.
I've been using those peg a fair bit and in a variety of terrain, so far they performed very very well. No bending and retrieving is very easy.
I really like the sturdy anchorage they provide
I really like the ease of using the pegs when camping. They peg into any type of soil and seem to hold extremely well. Be careful though if they take an impact either vertical or horizontally from someone walking on them or tripping over them they will bend and break at the notches with a single impact. But still think they are great.
length in cm please
The Sea to Summit Ground Control Pegs are 7.1cm long, and 1.1cm wide.
Ah, yeah. The Sea to Summit Ground Control Pegs are 18cm long, which works out at just short of 7.1 inches. Our bad, thanks for picking that up!
