Specs:

A coating titanium tent stakes with Hi-Visibility Orange that is far more durable than any sort of painting. The technology creates a durable mechanical bond that prevents the coating from flaking or chipping off the titanium surface of the tent stakes. The result: Bozeman Mountain Works' Lazr Titanium Stakes



How Durable is the Coating on Hi-Vis Titanium Tent Stakes?



This coating is durable enough that it will not passively chip, flake, or wear thin if subjected to normal forest soil abrasion. Pounding on the head of the tent stake, of course, will cause the coating on that part of the stake to wear down to the titanium surface. Likewise, as the shaft of the tent stake is subjected to abrasion against objects which have a hardness greater than H/HB (rocks, consolidated sand and gravel, etc.), the coating of the shaft will wear. However, the amount of field use required to wear the coating to the point that it no longer functions (that is, provides the visibility you need to find your tent stakes) probably exceeds the useful lifetime of either your tent stake or the shelter which you are staking down! Our goal in this design is simply to provide a long-lasting coating that retains the hi-vis nature of the tent stake during normal field use - while adding less than 1/100th of an ounce to the tent stake weight.

Weight: .217 oz (6.15 g) each

BMW Lazr Stakes Bright Orange on 10/23/2008 17:47:35 MDT Print View

I'll never have another stake that isn't brightly colored. While removing one of these, the last time I was camping, I accidentally slingshotted one through the air with my Jacks 'R' Better Self-Tensioning Lines. I looked and looked, but finally gave up. After I had packed up and was walking away from the campsite, I spotted it, amongst the leaf litter, a considerable distance away from the point of origin. You CAN find a needle in a haystack.

LOL - same reason on 10/23/2008 18:05:36 MDT Print View

I sware this is the exact reason why I am letting these go.My Hennessy side tie out (elastic cord) slung my stake and I went on a hunt. Found it thanks to the orange color.

Similar stories, for sure.
I now, reluctantly, regard these as 'consumables'. Sigh.

Brian,

If the deal with Pamela doesn't work out, I'll swap you for some brand new Lazr Hi-Vis Titanium NAIL Tent Stake (6-Pack) or pay the 15 bucks. I prefer the hooks.

Tony
