/ Lightweight tent pegs
I got hold of a Gelert Solo for £20 today, and whilst not the best of tents, it'll do for sneaky nights out in decent weather. The pegs with it nearly weigh more than the tent itself, so I want some new ones to get it down to a reasonable weight around 1kg-ish. Cheers.
I got some vargo ultralight titanium nails and they're a bit rubbish... real tendency to shear off at the stamped hole at the top end. Get the full-fat ones instead, they're pretty good.
My MSR Hubba Hubba came with some of MSR's own needle pegs... square section aluminium. They're good, but not perfect, and they're still bendable. Still beat the usual pegs though.
Between the nails and the y-pegs I'm basically sorted... even the paperclip-like mockeries that came with my laser comp are useful at holding the tent in shape when there are real pegs to hold it down.
Nice one, thanks. Will get some of the Alpkit ones I think, look cheap enough, as I don't want to spend more on pegs than I paid for the tent in the first place!
Those decathlon ones are the same I have with my tent. Cracking pegs.
