Courtesy of Suluk 46The Olik Titanium Snow Stake from Suluk 46 is a lightweight option for winter tent camping trips.

You can always anchor a tent by tying your guylines to a log or a rock buried in the snow (also called “deadmen”), but why not invest in a set of good snow stakes? For a secure hold at a minimal weight, consider the 0.5-ounce Olik Titanium Snow Stake from Suluk 46 ($90 for four; suluk46.com). Designed more for guylines than for tent loops, the Olik Titanium’s wide, flat design is dotted with holes to let snow fully set in and around the stake, creating a near-slip-proof anchor when the winter wind howls.
