These MSR carbon core 6″ tent stakes are very lightweight but strong tent pegs and ideal for lightweight backpacking and wild camping trips. They’re 6g each and the rounded red cap means they are more comfortable to push into the ground than traditional tent pegs. The carbon core makes them very strong. The red cap makes them easier to spot in rough ground. Read my Full Gear Review here.

These MSR carbon core 6″ tent stakes are very lightweight but strong tent pegs and ideal for lightweight backpacking and wild camping trips. They’re 6g each and the rounded red cap means they are more comfortable to push into the ground than traditional tent pegs. The carbon core makes them very strong. The red cap makes them easier to spot in rough ground, although they are not quite as visible as the longer 9″ version.
(Note that the 9″ version does not have the carbon core.)

The MSR carbon core 6″ tent stakes have been on all my wild-camping trips for the last four years. (1200 mile Lejog 3-peaks walk and 1100 mile Dover to Cape Wrath walk) They are very lightweight for they’re size and they’ve worked well during winter and summer. I really like the red tops as it makes them easy to find and push into the ground.
