Item keeps referring these stakes as a "kit". Does this mean they also come with a pouch or carrying bag for these stakes? I don't understand the concept of "kit" with having no description whatsoever if a bag or pouch comes with these stakes or are they "only" the stakes alone. Can somebody please enlighten me on this subject? Thank you very much!
NATHAN D The term "kit" is used to indicate that the stakes come together as a set - nothing more, nothing less. Neither pouch nor carrying bag will come with these stakes. This term is used frequently and is not meant to mislead customers (and no, I am not an outdoor company rep).
In hopes that this helps,
KEVIN K No bag or pouch but they are my favorite stakes. Just the cordage that is also reflective. As a matter of fact, I own over 30 of them. I have a set with my Warbonnet Blackbird hammock and Superfly tarp and more for a CCS Lean 2+ shelter that can use a lot of stakes in high winds. It is a very large shelter that I use in the BWCA.
RODGER M I can't remember for sure, but I don't think there was a bag for them, but then that was not an issue for us. I'm guessing the term "kit" just refers to the quantity of 8, as a "kit" to stake a tent or fly. My sons used these last year on their Philmont trek for their Tyvek dining fly - they worked very well, except one campsite that was very rocky.
Brian C I purchased a couple sets of these a year ago for an overnight hiking trip. I don't remember them coming with a bag. I put them with the few stakes (not enough) that came with the tent. They're great for adding extra stabilization or to perhaps replace some heavier stakes. Kit probably refers to these coming with the lanyards attached. I really did like these on the trip. Hope this helps...
JACOB R No pouch. I'm guessing by "kit" they mean multiple stakes. Enough to pitch a tent.
ROBERT S They do not come with a pouch or carrying bag. The word "kit" merely means that it is a group of stakes. They are very tough stakes and work well in both soft and hard ground.
AARON H I ordered these stakes 6 months ago and it comes with 8 stakes but no pouch or carrying case. I believe they are using a generic definition of "kit." 1. A set of articles or equipment needed for a specific purpose.
David K Its just the stakes.
GORDON F I bought these last year and yes they came in a small nylon bag just like you would expect tent stakes to be in.
P.S. They work great.
CHERRY S Unless the packaging has changed since I got mine, it is just the stakes alone. Maybe "set" might have been a better term, but I just keep them in the stake bag that came with my tent.
JOSEPH R F The set I bought came with a small pouch for the stakes. I would say the concept of being a kit would be based on the inclusion of more than one stake.
CHRIS F Really it's not much of a "subject". The're freaking stakes. Add them to your kit and hit the trails already.
