/ Are Alpkit candy cane pegs any good?
As title, not too bothered about weight but are want something (skewer design) that won't bend too easily, will these do the job?
As they are red they are really easy to spot on the ground aswell.
Not quite sure which ones you mean as there is only 1 type of named 'candy canes' on Alpkits website. I got to use a Kangri this summer and owner never stopped complaining about the crappy pegs. They were all badly bent.
I can vouch for the quality and robustness of the Alpkit 'Spikes' - used on icy ground and 'placed' with a Fly hammer in winter; placed on French campsites with a handy rock in summer.
But not cheap.
Never had any problems with them in hard and/or frozen ground. Bought as replacement for an old tent and as standard with the huge Heska.
No idea, but for lightweight unbendable pegs I do like these:
Yeah, as I say I haven't tried the alpkit ones (and I'm a big fan of their stuff in general), just been very impressed with the decathlon ones - I've given them a pretty hard beating with a handy rock and they've come out looking like they're just out of the packet.
