Re: how about this
Caution: No direct experience, plus heavy bias against weight. The Quartz weighs almost 5.5 lbs. -- or almost twice the weight of the Big Agnes. As you can see, the inner tent is all solid fab...

Big Sky Ultra C Aluminum Tent Stakes
I've been using titanium shepherd hook stakes for years now -- loving their ultralight weight but disappointed with their suboptimal ground penetration and holding power. These stakes can be bent...
