They are good pegs, I've got a set in the caravan. I don't know if they'd have worked at Osprey though, I didn't have them with me up there as we used the Tvan. I still like the look of the angle iron type for really hard ground.

First time I used the pegs I linked earlier was in a well compacted camp ground which looked like concrete dust - maybe a road base of some kind??

Started with the old trusty steel ones and it made a 1/2 inch impression in the ground before flaring the hole, going nowhere and starting to bend.

So I tried my new super duper peg - wow - it drove straight in with ease. This ground would have been similar in hardness to some of the others mentioned above. And surprisingly, it was pretty easy to remove when I wanted to.

That one event alone proved to me I need not carry a battery drill and auger any more. But I need to pay about $10 a peg (actually it works out at $8 a peg delivered - I just ordered another set for the camper - putting ones money where his mouth is )


A few years ago, I was camped at Steep Point. Same shelly type of ground that Ian mentions. Getting 500mm sand pegs in was not easy, but do-able. Unfortunately a very strong cold front came in, and with the amount of canvas deployed, I had to double peg it. I really thought I was going to have a canvas blow out, the wind was that strong. I never slept that night due to the buffeting of the camper from said wind. This was before it got up to full strength. You can see the wind load in the canvas. The tent next door failed during the night:





I like the super peg idea of applying load directly into the shank. But I still suggest the drop forged peg is superior again (mind you it would want to, its 4 times the price - but there is no folded head to bend at all in those)

The coach bolt idea has been around for awhile now.
The Rockbreaker spring steel pegs from Multi Slide Industries are supposed to be pretty good. I picked some up but haven't been able to put them to the test yet.

Default Tent pegs

My simple solution to bent tent pegs, just 12mm steel rod ground to a point and with 4mm cross piece welded on to hold the rope. When the point flattens, or top gets a bit rough just grind them again. Easy as, and cheap too.
Don't work in sand though, I use sand bags. Very light to take, filling sand is free and bags very light to take home.

The camp host at Osprey had a steel rod like those which he gave me to try but it didn't even go in a few cm before it stopped and any more hits would bend it.

The shale type grpund is so compacted it's like concrete and the water actually sets the fine dust so it becomes like cement holding it all together.
