  • mesh bags instead of tent stakes

    Does anyone take mesh bags to put rocks in to use as tent stakes? If so, what kind of lightweight bags do you use and where can I get some?

    I do plan on taking stakes too. I'll be in the brooks.

      Exactly, I used them in the Brooks last August for a float hunt & they worked fine for the sl5 & hille.

      If you order from Campmor a lot & don't want to use your laundry bags that have them in multiple sizes, called a Heavy Duty Dunk & stuff bag.
      They come in black & dark blue & are tough to tear up.

        I use potato and onion sacks. I was buying the veggies anyway and the mesh bags serve the purpose well enough. Load 'em up with rocks or gravel when you get there. If the wind is howling you can bury them for a more secure hold.

          Can't beat them. Been using the same ones for years. Worth their weight in gold on NW Alaska floats.
