It's nice to have back up stakes and lines just in case of breaks or high winds
I've taken this bag on two cold weather hammock campouts now. Overnight lows were 12, 24, -1, -3. Every night, I had a 30 degree underquilt. Slept well, slept soundly, slept warm all nights. The 24 night was the best - VERY comfortable. The rest, I also used a 30 degree over quilt in addition to this 0 bag. On the 12 night, I actually opened thing up for a while to cool down. LOVE this bag. I tell EVERYONE!
Man! That stake press is awesome! No more “finding the right rock” or slipping then injuring your hand! Buy a kit and utilize that STAKE PRESS. Plus you get an extra nice stakes, reflective guy rope, and a sack. #WINNING
I appreciate the lightweight nature of the stake press and wish it was sold by itself. It's very practical and convenient.
did not like the way it was advertised. the add showed 10 stakes and a bundle lines. so i assumed ten lines for ten stakes what i got was 4 lines. now have 6 stakes and will need buy 6 lines. was told if i sent back would have to pay $13.00 restock fee +shipping $6.00. the cost of the item was $25.00. they should list the # of number of the items.
I purchased the Sierra Designs high route 1 and the guideline snapped on my third setup. I purchased this kit to have some additional security along my thru hike.
Also the proprietary steak press is a game changer! My hands will never be tore up again. Perhaps you can add a divot type feature on the side of the stake press for stake removal too?
