||Gossamer Gear sells it's own high quality titanium Tite-Lite stakes. These tent stakes are the lightest ones we sell and a standard in all ultralight hikers toolkit. In general we like to have a combination of stakes in our kit, a few shorts, a few longs, and some "V" stakes for the ridge line and other key points.
For most tarps we recommend a minimum of 8, which gives you a stake at each of four corners, two guy lines, and two vestibule stakeouts. You may want to consider getting 12, 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.

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)
