Toughstake™ is ideal for setting up your tent in snow. One of the key problems with snow camping is trying to stake your tent in compact snow. Normally, you stamp out a area for your tent, and then setup the stakes. Toughstake™ snow anchors work well in compacted snow. By using the Toughstake™ snow anchor, your tent will remain secure during afternoon and early evening winds.
In areas where the weather is slightly warmer, and the ground does not freeze, Toughstake™ snow anchors work all day and all night long, holding up to 10X the force of normal snow stakes. The lightweight design (only 1.18 oz / 33.4 g) and nesting feature, leads to a low lightweight footprint in your pack. We recommend using the small Toughstake™ sand anchor for 2, 4 and 6 man tents.
