We believe the Tite-Lite are the best high quality titanium tent stakes on the market. These stakes are the most lightweight option we've found. In general we like bring along a combination of stakes in our kit.
Using a ultralight backpacking tarp? Try these suggestions: "V" stakes for the ridgelines and other key corner stress points points, and hook stakes for tent guylines. For most we recommend a minimum of eight. This gives you a stake at each of four corners, two ridgeline guylines, and two optional stakeouts. Some also may want to consider getting twelve, which gives you extra stakes for fastening additional stakeouts or extras in case you leave one behind. This allows the use of all five stakeouts on the windward side of the tarp. For higher winds and added security, additional stakes would be an asset.
Tip: Have resistant "V" stake? Try inserting a shepherd hook stake through the cord at the top end.

Nervous and excited!Review by Heidi
My husband and I are hiking the PCT this year and we ordered the short Titanium hook stakes to replace the stakes that came with our tent (YES... GASP... we have a TENT!). These bad boys saved us a solid 5 ounces in weight! This seems like such a small amount, but ounces add up to pounds and everything counts when you're hiking for 5 months straight. We look so forward to trying them out. I am concerned about if we should've ordered extra stakes because they are so lightweight (will they bend?). I will definitely send a follow-up review, but for now, we're so happy to have switched out the stakes and have this super lightweight option! (Posted on 2/23/16)
Worth the price!Review by Princess of Darkness
Titanium can get a bad rap...like it is the gucci of the trail world but in this case it is worth it. I have bent so many aluminum tent stakes and then been SOL because I can't set up my shelter properly. These titanium ones are the bomb...super durable, lightweight, and hi visibility....I like the long ones in case I have to set up my shelter in a non-standard manner...they offer a little more flexibility for "creative" set ups. Do yourself a favor and get these stakes! (Posted on 11/10/15)
His Vis V-stake- the only one for meReview by Allgood
The high vis V stakes are not only easy to spot while in camp (trip avoidances) it is also one of the most durable stakes I have ever used. After years of bending sheppard hooks the V-stake is the only stake I will carry into the field-rocks, roots, and other preventatives under the surface are no match for the strength and ease of these tent stakes in the ground.

Great StakesReview by Heather
I've used the Titanium Tite-Lite Tent Stakes - Short for years. They are exactly what you need in a tent stake and a fraction of the weight of most other stakes. I have bent a few on rocks and tough ground, but never so much that they don't work. Much more durable than aluminum. (Posted on 2/20/15)
The Hi-Viz yellow excellentReview by BruceE
These are quality Ti stakes. The yellow coating makes them easily seen and as yet shown no signs of wearing off like the florescent paint I've had in the past. ( SIDE NOTE : Gossamer Gear uses ceramicoat coating on the Ti stakes - This is the same coating that is used to coat firearms ) - Michael GG staff (Posted on 6/15/14)
